Extremely disappointed with every aspect of my stay except the location. As everyone as previously mentioned it is located close to everything you would want to be close to. A short summation of our thoughts/ experiences below. The worst experience on of 1 year world trip! Check In: waited more than 1 hour to check in. Was told we just... More

hosteltaormina, Direttore at Hostel Taormina, responded to this review

Just to be clear: Check In: you arrived hours before check-in time (1:00 pm) so you had to wait like other guests. The space: we offer the service of "free lockers" to give you a secure place where to put your important stuff, and our lockers are very big compared to the ones in other places. If guests don't put... More

Very nice place. People made us to feel very welcome, helped us with the recommendation for the most popular places to visit, just like a tour guide. Helped us with every thing what we asked. I felt as they are our family very kind people and friendly. The hostel is exactly as it is described at the website, clean ,... More

I emailed this hostel the night before coming saying that I was concerned that I would not find a bus. I did this out of courtesy and I called in the morning to discus the best way to arrive. The staff told me that there was no booking in my name. I freaked out and found that I had paid... More

The hostel has a great location. I decided to visit Taormina the last moment, so I didn t have time to do a lot of research before but I was very pleasantly surprised that when you check in you receive a kind of introduction about the city. Where to go, what to see, best places to eat(street food or restaurants).... More

The location is great! Given that Taormina is a very steep city, it is good to be able to walk to the main areas very quickly! Bus station is relatively close, train station is far. The staff was helpful, the guests in general very friendly. WiFi signal is good. However, during summer nights, it can get quite hot in the... More

I stayed in one of the dorm rooms in this hostel of which there are 3, sleeping from 6-8 people in bunks. The room sizes are good, you get a very large personal locker which can fit your whole suitcase in (or 2) and there is a lamp for each bed plus linens all included in the price, and ofcourse...

I stayed for two nights while attending a wedding in Taormina. It is a nice hostel close to the centre of town with good showers and comfortable beds. The staff were very helpful particularly Egle who arranged a hair appointment for me prior to the wedding. I would stay in hostel Taormina again.

I stayed there for one night. The directions given from the bus station were very good. The staff was friendly. Check-in is at 1pm, but when I arrived at 10 to ask if I could leave my bag there, the worker cheerfully allowed me to. The worker at night helped me by setting my phone to English (I had my...

I stayed in this small tiny hostel during 8 days in the low season (mid-April). There are only 20 beds spread into 3 rooms, each bed is provided with private lamp. The location is excellent, only 10 minutes walk to the bus terminal and to the supermarket. Small kitchen but well equipped with tools for cooking. 3 bathrooms, one of... More
