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

Ideal for the walk up to Castelmola as the steps are just to the left of the hostel. Also good tips from the staff on the things you MUST do in the area - including drinking almond wine at the hilariously decorated bar in Castelmola (the less you know the more of a surprise it is when you get there...)...

As I am really appreciating my privacy and had a little more budget to spent, I booked the appartment in Hostel Taormina which has own shower and toilet as well as a double bed and ac/television. I loved the place, felt safe and secure and love the hospitality of the friendly staff. Really liked the fact that I could use... More

Really well located gor the bus station and sights but still quiet. We stayed in theapartment which had a small kitchenette and was comfortable after the beach/walking. The staff were very friendly and the woman who checked us in gave us list of tips about where to eat and try the almond wine. A lovely stay with a warm welcome.... More

Hostel taormina is a very charming place and especially francesco the owner is very nice and helpful. As my friend was feeling sick he made tea and went to take medicine. It is an easy going hostel where you suddenly feel like in family and where you can meet nice people.

A fantastic little hostel in Taormina. The owners/staff are all very friendly, and even though I only stayed for one night they made me feel like part of the family :) The location is great, not far from the main road, and the view you get from the balcony is incredible! Absolutely recommended, I hope to go back soon :D
