We booked this B&B because of its location in central Catania close to Via Etnea and in this regard this B&B exceeded our expectations because it is spot on in the center with good bus connections and within walking distance to shops, the market and some restaurants.
The host was very friendly and nice, however when we asked for directions for using the public transport the information provided was not correct and we ended up wasting a considerable amount of time to get to go back to get the right bus.
We stayed in a quad room. The B&B is located in an older apartment building with a beautiful decorated stucco high ceiling. That said however, it is furnished with lower end IKEA furniture, so the sleep quality was not great but OK and it did have quite a "hostel" feel to it. I did not like the bathroom at all, because after every flush a loud pump went on, which was quite embarrassing and annoying if you needed to use the bathroom during the night, especially for the fellow travelers who were sleeping. Having a shower without leaving a mess was also quite a challenge.
Breakfast consisted of a huge croissant, instant coffee and orange juice, so in that regard I was very pleasantly surprised.
I would not mind returning to this B&B if I needed a place spot on in the center of Catania, even though I have mixed feelings about it. Considering the low price I would have to say that it was OK.
