We had a nice stay here, it was off season, so there weren't so many people in the hostel, but anyway Marco, the manager, was always ready to chat about everything, Italian football, Sicily, everything that you're interested at. He's a really helpful person and will make your stay in Catania comfortable!

I stayed at C.C.Ly Hostel for 5 nights. Cleanest hostel I've ever stayed in so far! Actually the hostel is part of a beautiful historical palace and located in the old city.The food at the pizzeria just below the palace is delicious. There are many tabacchi shops and stores nearby for daily needs. The hostel's kitchen can be used by...

Let me start by saying that we arrived here in the middle of the night and while the outer door made it look like a giant haunted house, it was wonderful inside. The area around it has plenty to do, the staff was super friendly and the other guests all welcoming. The view from the private room with en-suite bathroom...

The positive reviews of this hostel on TripAdvisor don't match the nightmarish experience I just went through at C.C. Ly., and the one that I'm currently living through as I nurse the 40+ welts covering my body due to the bed bugs I received at this place. Where to begin? The sheets I was given for my bed were soiled...

The hostel is overall a bit grungy. If it weren't for the bright colors it would look even dirtier. The bedrooms and lockers were nice enough and the area is pretty quiet so it is easy to sleep, but beware of the cockroaches that come out at night. They were huge and were crawling into the common area and in...

Despite pushing the huge castle like door to come in and a couple of mosquitoes in the room, this hostel is a very good place to set up your base camp to explore the city. Close to train / bus station and a little walk will take you to the city centre. The staffs are extremely generous and friendly.

As soon as I entered the hostel, I was greeted, checked in, then invited to a glass of wine. It's pretty rare to have such friendly service from the minute you step in the door. I was winding down on the last night of my trip, and this was the perfect hostel for that. The place was clean, quiet, and...
