Stayed here for 4 nights. The room and bathroom were comfortable and clean. There were 4 people in the dorm. Staff were very helpful.Breakfast was included. There is a local public beach very close by. This beach is very quiet. I preferred to go into the town and use the beaches there. They were much livelier. It just depended on... More

Very easy to get to, right on the main bus route between messina and taormina. Free parking round the back too. pleasant basic rooms with A/C and balconies. Lovely roof terrace with a nice view of Mt. etna and the sea. Breakfast was basic but filling; breads, cereals coffee etc - no complaints at all :)

I stayed here for 10 days as part of a large group on a field trip and couldn't be happier with the place. No, it was no 5* hotel but the water was got and the kitchen was immaculately clean! Gianni and his wife are overly accommodating and there is a beautiful roof terrace with a view of Etna. Wifi... More

I stayed in Gianni House for a week and was not sure it was going to be a winner on first impressions but I was happily proven wrong. Obviously as it is a hostel if you are looking for 5 star comfort this is not the place for you. But it is clean, well maintained and the staff always seem... More

The staff was very friendly and able to give good advices about the environment. There is a nice roofterrace and patio (including a hammock). The hostel is close (5-10 min walk) to a nice beach. This beach is outside to commercial area of Giardini Naxos, so less crowded. It's a 10 min walk to the boulevard of Giardini Naxos. Next... More

If you're looking for somewhere reasonably priced with helpful staff and easy access to the sites and beaches of Taormina and Giardini Naxos, stop looking. Gianni House is the place. A 5 minute walk from two fun, nice beaches in Giardini Naxos and a 10 minute bus ride from the center of Taormina, the hostel is in the perfect location.... More

There are many reasons why you should choose Gianni House​ for your stay on the East coast of Sicily. First because it is a perfect base (at reasonable prices) to visit the wonderful city of Taormina​, explore the unique volcanic landscapes of Mt Etna or just chill on one of the many Ionian sea beaches.

Lovely hostel run by lovely, welcoming people! After spending 10 days here, I didn't want to leave. The room are more than what you would expect, the bathroom exceeds expectations and the breakfast is a perfect way to start the day. I would definitely recommend this hostel to anyone and would definitely visit again! :)
