I stayed at the CCLy Hostel because of its central location minutes by foot to the bus and train stations in Catania. Marco was a wonderful host and provided tips for travelers. There is a nice kitchen and dining area. The basic continental breakfast is included. The male dorm was not air conditioned, but there was a nice breeze at...

Indeed the most colourful experience:) We were staying in a pink room and it was like staying in a happy place. Marco, the owner became our friend. He recommended us a great guide for Etna, local places to eat, everything. He lives for his hostel and you can see it. We had problems with shower and it was fixed in...

This hostel is fairly easy to find and located very close to the central bus and rail stations, so you don't have to take public transport which can be confusing if you dont speak the language! I travelled alone, and felt quite skeptical about Catania when first arriving, but Marco welcomed me to his city and the experience was transformed!...

We booked this hostel for 19 persons and had paid almost 300€ booking fee. When we got to the hotel we found bed bugs literally crawling all over the place, dead and alive ones in our beds and under the mattresses. There was a crack on the wall that was filled with bed bugs. When we demanded our booking fee...

The location is nice, not far to the centre. Unfortunately there were few problems there... After the first night we realized there are insects in the rooms and we ended up with red spots on the skin. The owner weren't nice and helfpul. They had problems with everything. "We serve free breakfast in the morning which includes fresh bread, fruit,...

We stayed at this hostel when we found ourselves without accommodation for the night after our train was cancelled en route to Taormina. It is well located for the station (5 minutes walk) but not the most pleasant of areas. The staff were friendly and helpful. We had a double ensuite room which was cheap, clean and comfortable - perfect...

I don't know what to say about this hostel: there was a guy presenting himself as a staff, but he was not. Also, a tief stole document to our room mate. But the main staff was kind and helpfull, so perhaps there's some kind of magis there :)

Spent one night here after coming back from Avola. Perfect location very close to the bus and train station. The building was a little hard to find since the hostel is inside a huge, beautiful palace that you wouldn't think contained a hostel. You had to enter first through a metal gate and then through a GIANT, heavy wooden door....
