The hostel is very well located, nearby the Piazza Duomo and you can see most of the main attractions of Catania by foot, at night the Piazza down the hostel is a good point to meet and drink a beer. The staff is excellent and very friendly, they gave us tips of places and about the Etna Volcano, the only...

We didn't stay in the hostel, but visited as the food, atmosphere and underground river were recommended. We arrived at 6pm and left at midnight, and had a fantastic evening. The menu is large and varied with great vegan and veggie options as well as fish and meat. We had a mixed fish starter followed by a veggie pizza (him)...

No air conditioning. People walking in out all times of the night, turning on lights while others are sleeping. Pay €2 to rent a towel. Bathrooms are not the best. There is no keys they give you, so basically anyone can access any rooms at all times

We just stayed one night with a friend, good experience. The staff is welcoming, kitch is ok. Dorms and shower are satisfactory for the price. Good place for going out during summer. The bar gives good prices and has a nice cave with underground river, good for cooling down when the temperature is high. Dorms and balcony are just in...

We had a really warm welcome. But our room was very hot and under our window was a music box. So we had to sleep with the windows closed. We thougt the music would be out around midnight. But the party went on untill 6 a.m. The breakfast was just a croissant from the supermarket.

It is perfect for people who want to stay in the centre of Catania and take part in Sicilian night life as well - right in front of the hostel Catania's youth meet up for a beer and music. Rooms are clean and simple, showers work, good breakfast. Just round the corner you get loads of cheap vegetables and fruit...

Pretty good hostel. The location is fantastic it's right near the fish and vegetable market. Everything is within walking distance. The rooms were small, it's next door to a bar so it's loud all through the night. Wifi drops in and out when you're in the bedroom, but is 100% fine in the common area. Bathrooms are mostly clean Staff...

We booked a twin room for 7 nights at the Agora Hostel. The location was great, right by the fish market and a 5 minute walk from the bus station. We had our own private bathroom and bunk beds - the facilities were basic but all clean and functioning. The staff in the hostel were very welcoming and happy to...
