Liked: Caring, helpful staff who are available 24/7.

Disliked: Rather disappointed. Taormina is a ritzy, expensive resort town and this hostel is not only difficult and access but the facilities are old, cramped and in disrepair. I arrived in Taormina after dark and had to ask a half dozen people for directions. Even though we were told it would take just 10 minutes from the bus station, it took us more than 20. Then we had to climb about 20 steps to reach the reception area--a very small desk in the entry way with the staff member having to move her chair to let us by.The sleeping rooms are small and crowded. There was no A/C and the window was shut. A fan provided some circulation but the room was still hot and stuffy. The kitchen/eating area is tiny--no more than 2-3 can use this room at the same time. Bath facilities are adequate but shower hardware should be replaced. Finally there are signs everywhere and even though one says "Quiet hours 11 PM to 7 AM" I found the talking and people moving around or turning lights on & off to be very disturbing.


The property's response is

if you found all of these problems that others have never accused .. maybe it was not you in the day .Maybe 10 minutes or less from the bus station (of course if you follow the right path with the path name that we send with the confirmation of the reservation, no need to ask a dozen people we are here 24, in the evening we maintain the total silence, then certainly there is always a guest who might make some noise, new bathrooms, made ​​for less than a year, and the hostel has less than 4 years

Liked: Great staff in a beautiful city. The balcony overlooks the town, the Greek Theater, and the water. Stunning views. Great place to hang out with a bottle of wine.

Disliked: It's a really small and cramped hostel. The kitchen in particular is a tight squeeze if more than one person is cooking. But I understand the difficulty of running a hostel in the heart of expensive tourist town. These are the trade-offs.

Liked: I really loved staying at Hostel Taormina because it really offered value for little money. You are received by very friendly cheerful and helpful staff, the place is very clean (especially the bed-sheets, the overall cleanliness depends on the other guests as well; the place is cleaned twice a day otherwise). The location is also very good: only 5 min walk from the main street, Corso Umberto and you also get a very nice view from the terrace of the hostel!I would really go back there :)

Disliked: The only thing that could be better would be the water pressure in the shower and the size of the showers.
