“Nice and Helpful Staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2012

After almost 700km driving to reach Taormina and with this hostel booked, when we arrived the staff dont know about our reservation. So its seems that someone dont saw our reservation and then our beds was not available and thered no space in the Hostel for us..Its not the best thing to start. But the staff was great to call to some other people and so they gave us another room (a double one not a shared room) in a house of a guy in Taormina. So dont know about the hostel, but nice staff.

This hostel was the nicest place we stayed at during our 10 days in Sicily. We stayed in the private room with the double bed which was really comfy. We had free wifi, ensuite with towels and the staff were really helpful and gave us lots of information and discount vouchers for bars and restaurants.

I'd definitely recommend this hostel for budget travels as we only paid £55 p/n in August which is peak season.

Really enjoyed our stay - felt very welcomed. The staff couldn't be nicer. They gave us lots of information on the town, and went out of their way to help us organise a Mount Etna tour from Catania. The roof top terrace is a great place to chill and meet other travellers, the lockers were big, the internet was good, and the location was great - right near the main street. We definitely recommend this place and would stay here again for sure!

I had a very good time in Hostel Taormina. The staff was very helpful and friendly, they really made me fell at home!! The location is also a strong point, the hostel is just 2 minutes from the main street. The balcony was just perfect to spend some hours meeting others guests and enjoying the view.

My friend and I couldn't imagine a better way to experience Taormina!
Excellent location, our room was beautiful, clean and freshly refurbished, but what shines out are Francesco & Valentina.
The service we got was outstanding, mille grazie!
They helped us beyond expectations (searched for a way to reach Taromina when we got stuck in Catania after the very last bus departed...), gave us great tips on what to see, do (make sure to eat in Trattoria Don Ciccio, food & ambiance are splendid plus you get a discount as Hostel Taormina's guest).
All in all perfect hosts who made our stay in Taormina memorable.
5 stars recommendation.

Hostel Taormina was an incredibly welcoming and pleasant place to stay! It was very affordable, couldn't have had a more perfect location, and best of all, the hosts were two of the friendliest and most enjoyable people to be around! Valentina and Franceso had such good hearts and they were glad to be of help whenever I asked. I slept great and I didn't feel in any sort of danger whatsoever. The lockers were secure and held my guitar, my big hikers backpack, and also my smaller backpack. Overall, it was a great experience with great people and there's no doubt that I will someday go back!

Francesco and Valentina are very nice and make everything to make you feel good in the hostel. They give you tips about the city, it is really appreciated. I travelled there alone and I had lots of fun meeting people on the nice terrace.

I recommend it without any doubts !
