I came back here 3 separate times during my trip because I missed it each time I left. Best to make a reservation for a private room although the bunk bed room was fine. Staff became like family. Bella is a super cute puppy, or was. The only problem was the Vespa noise at 3 am. But well worth it.... More

如果你想體驗南義大利人的生活 來住這裡就對了 一晚16歐不含早餐但很值得 (跟老闆說是台灣的JESSIE介紹的喔) 這裡的房間很乾淨, 離郵局超市(可以買東西回來煮紅酒也很便宜)購物街走路步到三分鐘, 鬧中取靜, 你還可以散步到ISOLA BELLA 不用花錢坐電纜車, 往公車總站方向走,過了HERTZ租車後三叉路口右邊有樓梯一直走可以下去到海邊十五分鐘就到, 周末下午兩點半,還可以在足球場看義大利人踢足球(過HERTZ租車三叉路口樓梯旁邊有足球場 ) I feel like home here in Taormina Odyssey. It is the best B&B/Hostel in Taormina. The room is super clean, friendly people, walking distance to the post office,supermarket&toursit attraction. You can also walk down to Isola bella from Hertz car rentals without paying $ for the cable... More

I am so over some hostel in Europe as they are catering more for American teenagers who are here during their year, enabling them to drink alcohol silly. And so, I was petrified when I booked myself into this hostel because I don't know what to expect. During winter period, most of hotels at Toarmina are closed anyway as it's... More

Me and my boyfriend were very late arriving as we were travelling from Naples, are train was delayed, and we got to Taormina very late.

During our around-the-Sicily trip we decided to spend two nights in this hotel, so we could enjoy the famous Taormina beaches and restaurants. Locating the hotel proved to be a challenge, since there are numerous navigation signs around the city which point to Taormina's Odyssey, but will lead you to a completely wrong place. After some hopeless driving through the... More

I stayed here and had a fun time. The rooms are airy and cosy and there is a range of rooms- a 6 bed dorm, a 4 bed room, doubles and a double with an ensuite. There was complimentary breakfast which was yummy and set me up well for the day exploring this beautiful city! Thanks!

It was wonderful to find an inexpensive place to stay in this international tourist destination. We enjoyed lovely breakfasts served by the informative and helpful Maria in her kitchen available for the use of guests who could register as hostelers or bed and breakfast guests. Fine restaurants were nearby as well as lovely walks and ancient sites to visit.

We even had a room with a view over Taormina and the sea in the background. Very quiet neighborhood, 10 min walk to the cable car, 20-30 min to the beach if you want to take a walk down the mountain on a beaten track. Good service, decent breakfast considering the price. No curfew, can get maps and info here.

My girlfriend and I stayed here for a couple of nights in August 2012. Odyssey is reasonably priced bearing in mind it is in Taormina, although is a bit expensive for a hostel. It is located slightly out of town and is a bit of a climb up a hill. However, this is reflected in the price and was not... More
