Taormina's Odyssey Guest House and Hostel
Ranked #85 of 116 Taormina B&B and Inns
Reviewed February 3, 2012

I stayed at Taormina Odyssey for a few nights in January and loved it! The room and bathroom were very clean and nicely decorated. It was quiet, perfect for a good night's sleep. And it was just a short walk to the center of Taormina, which has lots of shops, restaurants, and cafés. I don't think I could have done better for the money! If youre looking to visit Taormina, I highly recommend Taormina Odyssey!

This guest house is a short walk from the Porta Catania in Taormina. My husband and I enjoyed staying in a quiet area away from the main street. Being so close to the supermarket was a huge benefit too. Maria the owner and her family are kind and helpful. They provided us with a map, and gave us suggestions on places to eat and things to see during our visit. The house is small; only 6 rooms, so it feels very mellow and relaxed. Each room is a good size and private.

Room Tip: The 2 rooms on the top floor have a shared bathroom, but also share a nice balcony and have great vi...

This is a great home away from home. It feels more of a guest house than hostel. Rooms are large and nicely decorated. Great staff and location also. I would definately recommend this place to others.

Room Tip: The doubles are reallly worth it for only a few euro more.

We had a very comfortable and easy stay here. The location is great and the room was very clean and comfortable. We had a shared bathroom which was extremely clean too, Breakfast was also very nice. Would recommend

We had a bit of an issue finding the place - Google Maps still shows it in its old location so we ended up miles away from the hostel. My only suggestion would be some decent directions online.

This is a great, functional, clean hostel with an excellent location, literally right off of the historical main street of Taormina. Family owned and run, this hostel gives you a feel of a home away from home and the staff is always personable and friendly!

Located just away from the hustle of Taormina, this homely hostel gave me a good platform for exploring the town. Run by a close-knit team, I felt I was able to easily approach the staff with questions. Private rooms are very comfortable.

Lovely owners- very welcoming and friendly. They offer you loads of info on the area and deals- they can arrange beach days/transportation etc.

Room for 3 had a little balcony and a terrace adjacent- handy for a bit of outside space and hanging laundry. This was communal for all guests.

The bathrooms were cleaned frequently and the place was well-kept.

Breakfast, included, was croissants, bread, fruit, hard-boiled egg, tea, coffee etc.

Wi-fi available.

A bit of a trek up the hill but worth it for a peaceful retreat away from the buzz of main streets.
