We didn't stay in the hostel, but visited as the food, atmosphere and underground river were recommended. We arrived at 6pm and left at midnight, and had a fantastic evening. The menu is large and varied with great vegan and veggie options as well as fish and meat. We had a mixed fish starter followed by a veggie pizza (him)... More

No air conditioning. People walking in out all times of the night, turning on lights while others are sleeping. Pay €2 to rent a towel. Bathrooms are not the best. There is no keys they give you, so basically anyone can access any rooms at all times

We just stayed one night with a friend, good experience. The staff is welcoming, kitch is ok. Dorms and shower are satisfactory for the price. Good place for going out during summer. The bar gives good prices and has a nice cave with underground river, good for cooling down when the temperature is high. Dorms and balcony are just in... More

We had a really warm welcome. But our room was very hot and under our window was a music box. So we had to sleep with the windows closed. We thougt the music would be out around midnight. But the party went on untill 6 a.m. The breakfast was just a croissant from the supermarket.

It is perfect for people who want to stay in the centre of Catania and take part in Sicilian night life as well - right in front of the hostel Catania's youth meet up for a beer and music. Rooms are clean and simple, showers work, good breakfast. Just round the corner you get loads of cheap vegetables and fruit... More

Pretty good hostel. The location is fantastic it's right near the fish and vegetable market. Everything is within walking distance. The rooms were small, it's next door to a bar so it's loud all through the night. Wifi drops in and out when you're in the bedroom, but is 100% fine in the common area. Bathrooms are mostly clean Staff... More

We booked a twin room for 7 nights at the Agora Hostel. The location was great, right by the fish market and a 5 minute walk from the bus station. We had our own private bathroom and bunk beds - the facilities were basic but all clean and functioning. The staff in the hostel were very welcoming and happy to... More

This was a friendly hostel. It was a larger hostel with main lounge areas. The main attraction is that it has a great outdoor connected restaurant that is a popular stop for locals, and better yet in the morning the local markets take over the streets just a hundred meters away. Quite, respectable, roomy. Getting there is simple. About a... More
