If you have booked an apartment call the staff on your arrival before you fetch the key, they are very helpful and friendly and might meet you at the room near the bus terminal. In tourist packed Taormina this hostel is of course more of a backpackers' choice but seems a good price per value option.

As it is written in previous comments, in this hostel is really the most friendly staff. Also a very nice location, amazing view from terrace.

Lovely and clean hostel with friendly staff. I had the private room which was a great price for what is a very expensive resort town. The hostel has a great roof terrace overlooking the town and cliffs.

We stayed only one night but really enjoyed our stay. The staff was very friendly and even gave us a quick tour through the city. The hostel was in a perfect location close to all shops and restaurants. I can only recommend it.

I stayed at Hostel Taormina for 2 nights and it was a great experience. Francesco and Clelia were very helpful. The view from the balcony is so great, that when the weather is good you'll really want to spend time just relaxing in the common area for a good chunk of the day. Positive: Friendly staff, clean rooms and a... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our beautiful city, the Pearl of the Mediterranean Sea, that is rich in culture and natural beauty, awaits you with its beaches, mountains, monuments and history. We are here to welcome you and to help you discover our city and its district. Taormina is wonderful in summer and, because of its mild weather, it is wonderful in winter too. Furthermore, behind the town there is Mt. Etna that, in winter, has a mantle of snow, perfect for those who love to ski or to slide slowly down its slope. Taormina is the starting point for excursions to the whole of Sicily, where you can admire the Sicilian Baroque buildings and the classical and architectural beauty of places like Noto, Modica, Ragusa, Syracuse, Agrigento, Palermo, Acireale, and Catania, where there is “nightlife” all the year round. Our hostel has cosy shared bedrooms. The use of sheets, pillowcases and blankets is included in the price. Hostel Taormina has large, bright, cosy bedrooms, that are furnished with personal wardrobes with padlocks and have large shared bathrooms, where cleanness and comfort are always guaranteed. The hostel offers discounts with bars, restaurants, pubs, beaches, rentals (of cars, scooters or bicycles) laundries,for excursions and a shared area for relaxing, chatting, playing or reading and a solarium with a large terrace and a breathtaking view of the Greek Theatre, the sea and Mt. Etna. We are always at your service and ready to help, giving you suggestions for your holiday here.We are here to plan your holidays in the best way possible and, above all, to meet you. We look forward to meeting you! ... more   less
