Hostel Taormina

We are young people who know that travelers must deal with the “little” problem of having to look for decent accommodation. We want to make that search a bit easier.

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 travelers 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.

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 lovely weather, it is wonderful in winter as well. Furthermore, behind the town there is Mt. Etna that, in winter, has a mantle of snow, perfect for those who enjoy winter sports. Taormina is the starting point for excursions to all 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 your stay with us!

The volunteers are always treated equally to all the other staff members, we think of ourselves as of a family! Mutual respect and friendly attitude is what we value the most, no matter how different our points of view would be.

El Hostelo de Taormina es un lugar mágico.
Excelente ubicación. Los datos para arribar al hostelo están perfectos . Tuve una buena ayuda para el desempeño de trabajo de parte de los genios “EGLE “ e”ITALO”. Ellos crean un ambiente de trabajo en de forma alegre.
A pesar de extender mi estadía en el Hostelo siento que no fue suficiente.
Chicos ya los extraño 😻😻😻

I had an incredible experience during my my time at the Homestal in Taormina! The opportunity not only allowed me to contribute to my host but also provided ample time to explore the local culture. From historic quarters to the markets, granita, and family dinners every corner turned was a positive experience. The city's diverse culinary scene was a delightful journey in itself. The work exchange not only enriched my cultural horizons but made wonderful friendships along the way. Grateful for this unforgettable adventure!

No hay palabras que describan lo hermoso que fue pasar el mes de Octubre en HoMstel Taormina. Fran y Pervi son excelentes anfitriones, te reciben con los brazos abiertos no solo a su hostel sino también a su familia. Aprendí un montón desde el manejo del hostel (recepción, manejo de reservas, housekeeping) hasta de astrología y mitología griega con Pervi.

El ambiente de trabajo es excelente, realmente se convierte en tu familia de Taormina, las horas y las tareas se respetan 100% y Pervi es súper flexible en ese sentido si tenes algún pedido especial. Muchas gracias por todo!!

Incredible time. This was my first worldpackers experience and I could not have asked for a better group/ hosts/ and hostel to be staying at. Francesco, pervina, and italo create a fun, welcoming, and learning environment. This is an amazing family environment. The hours are respected and the work is easy.
