We arrived late at sunday evening and the first impression was a little shocked. The place is situated in a gheto, there were beggars and gangs hanging out near by. And to make it scarier you have to wait behind a big gate with your luggage to get in, in this neighbourhood it wasn't fun. The room was clean, the...

CCLY Hostel, (pronounced: Si Si Ly....SICILY), is housed in an old palace about 5 minutes walk from the train/bus station, and about 5-10 minutes walk from the center of Catania. This is a small hostel with dormitory and private rooms, all tastefully decorated in 60's Retro style, with brightly colored wallpaper throughout. There is an elevator to take you to...

Beautiful place. The owner Marco a genius, excellent person. His atention was like a brother or best friend. Perfect breakfast. I never ate jams with such good flavor. It is shocking to see the living volcano etna with smoke. Marco goes ahead and thanks a lot for everything. Gabriel (Buenos Aires)

I stayed at the CCLy Hostel because of its central location minutes by foot to the bus and train stations in Catania. Marco was a wonderful host and provided tips for travelers. There is a nice kitchen and dining area. The basic continental breakfast is included. The male dorm was not air conditioned, but there was a nice breeze at...

This hostel is fairly easy to find and located very close to the central bus and rail stations, so you don't have to take public transport which can be confusing if you dont speak the language! I travelled alone, and felt quite skeptical about Catania when first arriving, but Marco welcomed me to his city and the experience was transformed!...

We booked this hostel for 19 persons and had paid almost 300€ booking fee. When we got to the hotel we found bed bugs literally crawling all over the place, dead and alive ones in our beds and under the mattresses. There was a crack on the wall that was filled with bed bugs. When we demanded our booking fee...
