8/10 Very Good

Natalia was absolutely lovely, friendly and helpful. Nice little courtyard. Recommended taxi to airport arrived early and was great! Kitchen locked so we were not able to grab our food when we departed on our early flight so we hope someone is able to enjoy it. Our tiolet seat was broken but just a simple fix. I would recommend as it is a neat hostel with all the amazing painting everywhere.

8/10 Very Good

The property was neat and well maintained by the employees each day. The only thing that was somewhat dirty was my bear feet in the publicly shared kitchen after stepping through.

Hotel from Hell!!
Nightmare hotel! No working ac at all just blows got air in the room around. I spent the night sleeping in the small shower so I could turn on child water every 15min. Extremely noisy street like a cars engine is revving inches from your ear. Late check in and manager leaves at night. After he left so many people came in to the room next to mine. Loud in the common area followed by crying babies all night long. Not one ounce of rest here.

Outstanding value!
Outstanding value! We had a private bathroom and our room accommodated three adults very nicely. The staff were wonderful. Excellent restaurant located adjacent to the hostel and many great dining places within a 5 to 10 minute walk.

4/10 Fair

I worked in tourism and hospitality industry. I'm a graduate of travel & tourism management. I stayed 6 days at this place. The location and amenities of property is price performing in comparison to others (€17 for a night in 12 bedded room) since, Catania hardly offers any better options. The afternoon and evening staff were pretty good. The housekeeping lady in the morning was terrible. She was so annoying. Every morning i went to ask for a coffee; she's asking money from me like i'm about to run away without paying. Maybe, it's because i'm a foreigner (from Nepal). She ruined my every morning throughout my stay.
