Deff best place in Taormina !!!



Such a cool hostel, amazing staff and volunteers, met some nice people. I felt right at home! It‘s not too big so you can make good connections with the other people staying there. The town is beautiful and main street super close, the beach is also wonderful and there are many more things to do in the area. I’m looking forward to come back some day 🙂

I felt so warmly welcomed and right at home. The owner was so communicative with me and kind over WhatsApp even though he wasn’t on site, and made sure I had recommendations for good places to eat when I got in. He obviously chooses his volunteer staff with care and attention, because they were the absolute best! Beds super comfortable, made of beautiful wood. I stayed a week; so hard to leave! Best spot to stay in Taormina, great location. Great price! Amazing view!
