    Very good

    The staff was supremely helpful. The atmosphere is typical of the hostel experience, and is one of the few options in Sicily, so is not to be missed for the budget traveler. The location is great; right around the corner from the weekly markets and a few more steps to Piazza del Duomo.

    Rooms can be a bit stifling at night in the summertime.

    If you want only to spend night , it is a cheap place to stay at. It is near the center and it is easy to get to anyplace. Although the room for some persons it was quiet during the day.

    But at night this hotel is a place of nightlife and it is difficult to sleep because of the loud noise

    Very close to city center, just 100m to main square. Very friendly and helpful staff. They really care to keep the guests satisfied. As a hostel it is new and clean. They have good pub serving even meals.

    Train is going just beside building, looks like earthshake :( But trains are probably not operated during night. Very simple breakfast, just cofee + milk or tea, bread, butter and jam.

    Great place for the price. I'd definitely stay there again.

    Bathroom can get a bit messy when it's very busy.

    good value in center city, friendly atmosphere

    Hostel is extremely difficult to find. Directions are vague - like stop at a nearby bar and ask for directions (the bar did not know the Agora hostel). The maps for the hotel show only an approximate location in a maze of small streets (and vary from one booking site to other booking sites!) The hostel should state CLEAR, unambiguous directions, perhaps starting from the central cathedral.

    Fabulous

    Good location in the center of town, next to Piazza Duomo. Budget variant for spend the night.

    The only minus is Etna trip, offered by hostel. It was cost 45euros. We were told that we go to Etna but in reality we've seen only National park of Etna. And it was flagrantly that we were misleaded by our guide about hight we stayed at - 2300m (he told) instead of 1500m(in real)!!! It's inexcusable i think.

    The noise generated by the train and the terrace nearby.

    Fabulous

    The staff were very helpful and friendly. They even allowed me to use their computer to print my stuff. :) The Hostel gives dinner and cocktail coupons to the guests so you can eat very cheap and good dinner (except for cous-cous :) with drink and cocktails are for a low price also. (1Person's dinner= 6eur = dinner + drink from a menu sheet. ) ----- Nagyon kedves és segítőkész személyzet. Még nyomtatni is odaengedtek a porta számítógépéhez. :) Jó és olcsó vacsoralehetőséget adnak a szálló éttermében. 6 euróért választhatsz egy étlapról és italt is kapsz hozzá. A kuszkusz kivételével minden kajájuk jó.

    Unfortunately, I paid no enough attention so we got a bunk bed -room. The Booked.net said that the chosen room had "two separated bed" but it did not think it was a bunk bed. I think this is a bit confusing... (It was the room "ferrero" I suggest you to choose room "Anita" if you want a normal bed) ------ Sajnos a foglaláskor nem figyeltem eléggé (?) és egy emeletes ágyas szobát kaptunk. A boobking.com oldalon az állt, hogy szoba két különálló ággyal, de szerintem ez mocskosul nem emeletes ágyat jelent. Ha biztosra akarsz menni a kétágyas szobákkal, az Anita-szobát válaszd (franciaágyas). Más gondom nem volt a szálllással.

    Superb

    Nice location, nice staff. Everybody is speaking English so good! Its very comfortable to get to the main sightseeings from the hostel. The food is amazing like in the whole Sicily. And right close to the hostel there is a huge bar where they give discounts for people from agora hostel. Very fun and friendly atmosphere. Thanks a lot.

    Location and price

    The personnel at the reception desk as well as at the next-door bar/restaurant was nice but gave us tricky information about the special deals, for the hostel guests only, at the bar/restaurant. That was really annoying so be careful if you don't want to be fooled like we were!

    Superb

    Friendly staff, very central location, bargain prices on food and drink in the restaurant/bar.

    Questionable cleanliness in the bathroom, but for 10 euros a head, we have no complaints!

    Exceptional

    close to the centre, the bar and kitchen were great amazing party on monday night and live music other nights, staff in the hostel were lovely particularly sara and santo! highly recommended to anyone looking for a lively experience of catania

    toilets were very clean and nice but there was no toilet seat, and it was next to the railway so a bit noisy

    Cheap and located almost in the city center, has a restaurant attached with nice food. Beds are more sturdy than I would have expected from the photo's on the site.

    very warm rooms, but with fan, and quite noisy. Breakfast is very simple
