Big & nice terrace where you can eat, drink while watching taormina's teather and the sea. Very economic in a city of luxury. Staff very kind. Everything clean. Perfect for backspakers. Before going, look well where is located,because it is a bit difficult to see the first door

Well, it was at least pleasantly surprising to find something affordable in such a beautiful town. Yes, you get what you pay for, so I'm not complaining.

Perfect location, right in the heart of Taormina and has a lovely terrace looking over the whole town. We stayed in a private room which had its on bathroom so pretty much like a hotel but cheaper. Staff were incredibly helpful and talked us through the map when we arrived and recommended some great places

Had a lovely stay here. Staff very welcoming and incredibly helpful. They helped us with tours and onward journey. The kitchen has a good variety of equipment. Very quiet, one of the best nights sleep I've had in ages. The terrace is lovely as well.

I had the pleasure of staying at Hostel Taormina many months ago, though I still recall my days there as often as possible. Francesco is very welcoming! He personally showed me around town with a handful of friends. The rooms were also adequate and clean. Whenever I do return to Sicilia--I'll be staying here!

Our beautiful city, the Pearl of the Mediterranean Sea, that is rich in culture and natural beauty, awaits you with its beaches, mountains, monuments and history. We are here to welcome you and to help you discover our city and its district. Taormina is wonderful in summer and, because of its mild weather, it is wonderful in winter too. Furthermore, behind the town there is Mt. Etna that, in winter, has a mantle of snow, perfect for those who love to ski or to slide slowly down its slope. Taormina is the starting point for excursions to the whole of Sicily, where you can admire the Sicilian Baroque buildings and the classical and architectural beauty of places like Noto, Modica, Ragusa, Syracuse, Agrigento, Palermo, Acireale, and Catania, where there is “nightlife” all the year round. Our hostel has cosy shared bedrooms. The use of sheets, pillowcases and blankets is included in the price. Hostel Taormina has large, bright, cosy bedrooms, that are furnished with personal wardrobes with padlocks and have large shared bathrooms, where cleanness and comfort are always guaranteed. The hostel offers discounts with bars, restaurants, pubs, beaches, rentals (of cars, scooters or bicycles) laundries,for excursions and a shared area for relaxing, chatting, playing or reading and a solarium with a large terrace and a breathtaking view of the Greek Theatre, the sea and Mt. Etna. We are always at your service and ready to help, giving you suggestions for your holiday here.We are here to plan your holidays in the best way possible and, above all, to meet you. We look forward to meeting you! ... more   less
