Catania

Welcome to the "Ostello degli Elefanti", Catania's most central Hostel.

Hostel Catania Logo

What is it that you as a traveller look for? What drives you to put hundreds or thousands of kilometers between yourself and all that is familiar to you? While the nswer to these questions may differ from person to person, rarely does the answer ever include the “tiresome comforts of home”. Ostello degli Elefanti gets it. We get it. You’re probably looking for an exciting atmosphere in an unfamiliar city but at the end of a long day of exploring/trekking/sightseeing/socializing, you want a comfortable, clean bed, maybe a glass of wine or a cup of tea, and some good company. Here we are! Ostello degli Elefanti is a hostel operated by two natives of Catania, one of the most inviting cities Sicilia has to offer. It is situated directly between the two main squares in Catania, in a 17th century palace (with vaulted ceilings!). Inside of our hostel we have a well­renowned restaurant that serves wonderful Sicilian dishes, cooked with local, fresh ingredients, all at a great price. We host 24 beds, so you’re never in danger of just being another face in the crowd. When you arrive, we will share what we know about our city with you, encourage you to dine in our restaurant with a 10% discount (although there’s always room for an arancino or a cartocciata elsewhere), and invite you onto our rooftop terrace for a glass of wine and the best view in Catania.

Earlier we talked about reasons to separate yourself from home. Catania is a great reason! It boasts a wonderful array of outdoor markets, a beautiful Baroque­style architecture, the Benedittini Monastery, countless churches and museums, and of course, close proximity to Mt. Etna! If you’re fortunate to come during early February or mid­August, you can enjoy one of the largest religious festivals in all of Europe in the Festa di sant’Agata. If you’re not a large­crowd, big­city type of personality who doesn’t get into our night life (try it once though!), Catania is a great hub to begin a trip to Taormina, Siracusa, Noto, Modica, and Palermo. If you’re a trekker, we help you to organize guided tours or solo journeys up to the summit of Mt. Etna.

There is no reason to wait. Our restaurant wants to feed you, we want to accommodate you! We hope to see you soon!

Taormina

I want You in my bed! Hostel Taormina, your Sicilian Family.

Hostel Taormina Logo

We are young people who are aware that those who go round the world have the “little” problem of having to look for decent accommodation at a reasonable price.
Everybody knows that sleeping in a hostel has the disadvantage of not having the services and the privacy you can find in a hotel, but it gives you the possibility of making friends with other travellers more easily. If you sleep in dormitories with other people you have the chance of exchanging information, experiences, and adventures, and discovering different lifestyles, views and languages. This is the principle behind hostels. The young people who stay in hostels share the desire to travel and discover the world, things that are denied to others. They have the advantage of doing it with little money in their hands, yet in safety and freedom.
Hostel Taormina has all these requirements. Our beautiful city, the Pearl of the Mediterranean Sea, that is rich in culture and natural beauty, awaits you with its beaches, mountains, monuments and history. We are here to welcome you and to help you discover our city and its district.

Taormina is wonderful in summer and, because of its mild weather, it is wonderful in winter too. Furthermore, behind the town there is Mt. Etna that, in winter, has a mantle of snow, perfect for those who love to ski or to slide slowly down its slope. Taormina is the starting point for excursions to the whole of Sicily, where you can admire the Sicilian Baroque buildings and the classical and architectural beauty of places like Noto, Modica, Ragusa, Syracuse, Agrigento, Palermo, Acireale, and Catania, where there is “nightlife” all the year round. We are here to plan your holidays in the best way possible and, above all, to meet you.
We look forward to meeting you!
