The 4 bed dorm we booked wasn't available so we were put in a 6 bed dorm with only one other person for the first night. then we were given the option to move rooms on the second night (annoying to pack up our stuff) or stay and there would be 6 people. They only refunded the difference between the...

Stayed here for 2 nights in a 4 bed dorm. I was the person there all through... Not very busy and very quiet, perfect for people looking for quite weekend. Considering how expensive accommodations in Taormina are, this place is very amazingly priced "happy pockets" plus the location is fantastic. Its only a min. away from the Catania gates. The...

This is a very nice and friendly family run place. The location is close to the main street, a little uphill and in a quiet neighbourhood. The double room was very comfortable and clean.

The room and bathroom were nice and clean, and the owners were super friendly! Location is very good but area is still quiet (you are really able to sleep) because it is not on the Main Street. Breakfast was also very good - especially the coffee! Definitely worth of the money!

It was a lovely vacation, one of the best. The owners of the hostel are very friendly and we had a great time being around. The city is marvelous, there are interesting places to see and the hostel is near the main street of the city. The room we had is clean and nice. We enjoyed the whole time there...

The prices are good and it is 5 minutes walk to the main street but the hostel was dissapointing. There is only one toilet and one shower as far as we could see between 4 rooms, some of them dorms. The room was cold and the sheets were damp. So much so that we had to leave and find another...

We went there in March as a 2nd location of our Sicily tour. Very nice location, friendly family run hostel, affordable price. A charming little guesthouse, with a very clean and comfortable room. We had a bit of trouble with the overflowing bath (as mentioned already elsewhere) but no big drama here. The breakfast was excellent, fresh food sourced locally....

The rooms are spacious and clean - and have hot showers next to them. I would highly recommend Taormina Odyssey. It's a fantastic B&B right on Taormina center so is perfect for people who like to exploring little historic towns in Italy. They have an amazing Breakfast.

We visited this hostel as we wanted somewhere to stay in Taormina that was reasonably priced. We had the private room with shared bathroom. It was all very clean and the bathroom was thoroughly cleaned daily. The included breakfast was amazing and was a great start to the day. We did the trip to etna that they ran which was...
