“Hostel Taormina”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

I had a very good time in Hostel Taormina. The staff was very helpful and friendly, they really made me fell at home!! The location is also a strong point, the hostel is just 2 minutes from the main street. The balcony was just perfect to spend some hours meeting others guests and enjoying the view.

My friend and I couldn't imagine a better way to experience Taormina!
Excellent location, our room was beautiful, clean and freshly refurbished, but what shines out are Francesco & Valentina.
The service we got was outstanding, mille grazie!
They helped us beyond expectations (searched for a way to reach Taromina when we got stuck in Catania after the very last bus departed...), gave us great tips on what to see, do (make sure to eat in Trattoria Don Ciccio, food & ambiance are splendid plus you get a discount as Hostel Taormina's guest).
All in all perfect hosts who made our stay in Taormina memorable.
5 stars recommendation.

Hostel Taormina was an incredibly welcoming and pleasant place to stay! It was very affordable, couldn't have had a more perfect location, and best of all, the hosts were two of the friendliest and most enjoyable people to be around! Valentina and Franceso had such good hearts and they were glad to be of help whenever I asked. I slept great and I didn't feel in any sort of danger whatsoever. The lockers were secure and held my guitar, my big hikers backpack, and also my smaller backpack. Overall, it was a great experience with great people and there's no doubt that I will someday go back!

Francesco and Valentina are very nice and make everything to make you feel good in the hostel. They give you tips about the city, it is really appreciated. I travelled there alone and I had lots of fun meeting people on the nice terrace.

I recommend it without any doubts !

My friend and I stayed two nights at Hotel Taormina and were provided with ample information about the town, great suggestions for places to eat (with discounts at each), wonderful company, and help scheduling an excursion to Mt. Etna! We absolutely loved the comfort of the lockers and the fact that everything was impeccably cleaned. From the hosts to the ease of planning days and nights out on the town, there's no other place to consider in all of Taormina or Catania!!

Room Tip: The light in the back bathroom is on a short timer, which is fine when in the shower but it will occ...

Me and my boyfriend stayed here for three nights in early may. We stayed in the private double room, and we were really pleased! Francesco and Valentina are excellent hosts, who will gladly answer any questions you have regarding what to see and how to get there. Everything was clean and tidy, and the terrace overlooking Taormina and the Mediterranean is really nice. We will come back!

I would definitely stay here again! The owner, Francesco, is very nice and extremely helpful. Our room was very clean and had a huge locker. The beds were comfy and the whole place was very clean. The terrace was beautiful - a great view and lots of seating. The directions to the hostel sounded strange to us at first, but they made complete sense once we were walking to the hostel. Thanks for a great stay!
