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.

Terrible experience, do not recommend. it was supposed to be 2 months, I needed to build a studio and fix all the farm of the owner, that was completely different as described. After Two weeks when the job was done he sent me away.




Francesco and all the team at Hostel Taormina are so welcoming and helpful! The work can be busy, but that makes the time go quickly then you’re free to explore! I miss them already!!




Los chicos del Staff son agradables y conversadores. BUENA EXPERIENCIA. Buen trato.
Hostel Lindo y limpio el tema es que durante mi voluntariado el hospedaje era en un apartamento que según mi criterio es distante porque Taormina está sobre lo alto de un monte y es un pueblo con muchas subidas, escalones. Bastante agotador realizar esta caminata para llegar al hostel. (Es una apreciación muy personal pueda que algunas personas les encante caminar o tienen mejor estado físico)Para mi la única desventaja de no vivir en el mismo lugar, VENTAJAS: más privacidad y tranquilidad, baño para el staff




Foi uma ótima experiência :)!

Desde sempre me senti em casa. Posso dizer que criei uma família na Sicília.

O trabalho estava muito bem organizado e o hostel é muito simpático, e localizado numa cidade belíssima :)!

Obrigada Freddy, Francesco, Gaetano e Vismary :)!
