We stayed at this place for two nights in September. Location is brilliant, right in the middle of the city. Our room had access to the huge terrace overlooking the Cathedral. Free parking on the street right at the hotel's door. I should agree to some points in the previous review - room was a bit spartan with Ikea bed...

This place has absolutely misleading pictures. The absence of any picture of the bathroom is not by chance. I have uploaded some pics for other people to see it. The real problem is that somewhere this place is advertised as B&B and we fell into this trap. This is NOT a B&B, it is a hostel and it has all...

Lovely hostel in a castle, in the upper old town. We had a private double with huge, huge room and views to Cathedral. Friendly service, very clean room. Shower & bathroom in another floor which was funny as they were still private. Recommended!

This Hostelling International-affiliated hostel is situated in a great location with a view of Noto Cathedral/old town. The owners of the hostel were very friendly, although they spoke limited English. Breakfast was ok (cereal and pre-packaged tartine). Good wifi signal. Just 5-10 minutes' walk from the centre of Noto, and around 15-20 minutes by foot from the train station and...

What makes this place a great option for staying is its location. It is an old castel that sits just behind the Baroque cathedral of Noto. Davide and Elena will make your experience as comfortable as possible. They have also private rooms available. Great option. I strongly recommend it.

We stayed here for an evening and found it a really enjoyable stay. The host was really friendly and he waited for us when we arrived a bit late. We booked the private room which was really spacious with a beautiful view of the city. Really hospitable and good stay. The only thing was the shower and toilet was on...

We were looking for an affordable priced room that was in a good spot to visit the city. Well, we got it here. Very friendly host and the room had a nice view since it's located in the higher part of the city, 5-10min walk down to the main street. We did get a room with bathroom/shower on another floor,...

Huge hostel in a fantastic old building overviewing the historic centre. Very quite and clean. Female dorm big with good size and well designed wooden lockers, but unfortunately most keys are missing and no possibility for a padlock. Not many toilets nor showers, this could be a problem in peak season. Each bed has a night lamp. Very good breakfast,...

I only stayed the one night in Noto, so I am not sure how representative my review will be. But overall, I liked the hostel. The people who run the hostel are very friendly, the rooms were clean and well equipped. I had a dorm room to myself and felt a little lonely, but on the other hand, I had...
