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.

It was a nice experience! Taormina is a stunning place, the team was very nice, I had a good time with Leticia and Pervina! Also Francesco is always available to help. We had to move houses and it was a bit confusing but after talking with them it was solved in the best way for both parts. I just want to give an advice that Taormina is a charming but small town, there’s not much to do in the night and during the day there’s restaurants and the beach, and is pretty much this, there’s some activities in some cities around tough.

Hostel Taormina is a wonderful place to stay as a guest, as well as a volunteer. First off, Taormina and Sicily in general is a beautiful place! Second off, the hostel is very central, with a huge welcoming terrace with a nice view right over Taormina, the ancient theatre and the sea.
The working hours are fair (4 hours a day) and flexible.
The hosts Francesco and Pervina were such nice and welcoming people, who showed me around a lot and always checked in if everything was alright! I'm very thankful to them, even if I had to cut my volunteer experience short by 2 weeks :( I'll come back!!

Fue una hermosa experiencia, tanto Pervi como Francesco fueron muy buenos anfitriones, muy atentos a las necesidades del staff, nos hicieron sentir en casa.
Se formó un buen equipo de trabajo, que se convirtió en una familia.
Recomiendo esta experiencia!
