Italian hospitality at it's best thanks to Graziella! This is a nice place in the suburbian area of Taormina (10 mins bus ride). The village itself Giardini also has a nice beach, good fish restaurants and supermarkets. You can easily spend a nice an quiet beach holiday there. Breakfast buffet with coffee and juice as much as you want. Gorgeous...

We travelled in October and loved this place. It's huge, really really clean and has the best kitchen. It sits a 10 minute walk from town and about a 40 min walk from the train station of Taoramina (of course there is a bus, but we didn't mind the walk). The lady that was on the desk Graziebella was amazing,...

I spent the first week of September staying in a dorm at Gianni house. The dorm was clean, staff very friendly & helpful and breakfast was included in the economical fee of just 22euros. Beaches, bars and restaurants were nearby as well as the bus stop which took me direct to Catania airport and a visit to Taormina - Highly...

Giavani House is a great place to come if you are in the mood for some quiet yet exploration around the beautiful town of Taormina, Sicily in the location of Giardini Naxos. The hostel is located about a 10 minute walk from Giardini and is a 15 minute bus trip (with the bus stop located 30 metres from the hostel)...

Gianni House is a great hostel, incredibly clean, extremely pleasant and only 8 min walking to a great beach in Giardini Naxos. I had read the reviews and chose it for the location and accessibility to the beach, and wasn´t disappointed. The beds are very good, all rooms with bathroom, but all of them with stairs. Internet worked very well....

This is one of the friendliest places I've stayed. It very clean and near both the beach, tourist sites and restaurants. But also has wonderful kitchen facilities and great common areas. They are very helpful with arranging day trips or with any questions. I stayed 2 weeks while taking an Italian course and it was the perfect location.

Stayed here for 4 nights. The room and bathroom were comfortable and clean. There were 4 people in the dorm. Staff were very helpful.Breakfast was included. There is a local public beach very close by. This beach is very quiet. I preferred to go into the town and use the beaches there. They were much livelier. It just depended on...

Very easy to get to, right on the main bus route between messina and taormina. Free parking round the back too. pleasant basic rooms with A/C and balconies. Lovely roof terrace with a nice view of Mt. etna and the sea. Breakfast was basic but filling; breads, cereals coffee etc - no complaints at all :)
