10/10 Exceptional

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.

Everything was OK. What I seen in the pictures I had overthrew. Air conditioning, clean room, terasa, close by hystoric centre, friendly staff, so we had no problems.

2/10 Poor

Staff couldnt care less. Kept me standing at reception ignoring my presence whilst arguing amongst themselves. Ignorant and unhelpful.
