Best Hostel in Sicily! ... Gianni House was great! The room was cute and very clean, which is greatly appreciated. I loved the atmosphere of the area; it was so relaxed and peaceful(a nice change after being in some of Italy's bigger cities). The bus stop is right outside making it ...

Description - Hostel

We are located 3 km from Taormina City Centre, 200m from the sea (Naxos Bay), and 20 meters from the bus stop. Find out why we are the best choice!

Are you looking for the best possible experience in Sicily?
Look no further...

Gianni House is located 3km from TAORMINA, 20 mt from the bus stop that will take you for excursions throughout all of Sicily, and walking distance to the beach. This is a hostel where you will feel like you are in a hotel, and still enjoy the low price of a hostel. Everything is possible in Gianni House, as it is our goal to be listed as the best hostel in all of Italy! Gianni House is the BEST choice for your stay in the Taormina - Naxos area (The first Greek colony in Sicily).

Here is why we are the best:

1. Our location is optimum, and "close to the action in Taormina"!
Location is of extreme importance when selecting a hostel because the cost and stress of commuting into town often becomes a major expense. The major bus stop for the area is directly in front of the hostel, and we're just 3 km from TAORMINA. We are a very short walk to the beach (you can view the sea and mount ETNA from our terrace), we are also a short walk to the city centre of Naxos. Because we are centrally located, you can easily visit two towns for the price of one!

2. We are the cleanest and most comfortable hostel in the area.
If you have stayed in hostels before, prepare to be amazed by the cleanliness and efficiency of Gianni House. All rooms have ensuite upgraded bathrooms and new beds. We are travellers as well and understand how important it is to have a new clean bed and mattress to sleep on.

3. Our activities and fun factor is unsurpassable.
We know what it takes when it comes to bringing people together for a fun time! Pasta parties are a weekly event where travelers can taste authentic Sicilian cuisine, and wine.

4. Safety is of extreme importance at Gianni House.
We are located in a safe neighborhood and have a locking system ensuring that only guests are allowed access to the property. Your personal items will be safe here as well since lockers are available for your luggage. We also offer FREE PARKING directly behind the hostel where you can keep your car.

5. Information and assistance is always available at Gianni House!
We are experts of the Taormina - Naxos area and we want to make sure that you are informed of the area is well. That is why you will receive a map and detailed explanation of the area at check-in. If you have any further questions, we will take the time out to answer and explain anything further to ensure that your trip is memorable. Travel guides and books are available for you to read at no cost as well.

6. Our view is by far the best!
Gianni House offers access to our rooftop terrace where you will see stunning views from all sides of
the terrace. You can view Taormina, the sea, and even have breakfast with Mount ETNA (Europe's most active volcano) directly in front of you! The rooftop terrace is an ideal location for sun bathing and viewing the city from high above!!

So, take a look at our videos, read the reviews and choose Gianni House for your next trip to Sicily! You will thank us later!

How to get there

From the Catania airport or any bus station, take the blue Taormina Etna Transporti Interbus towards Recanati and get off at the Renault bus stop. Our stop is before Taormina. You usually have to ask the bus driver to stop at Renault, since they don't always stop there. The bus stop is right across the street from a bakery called CasaBlanca. Take a right at CasaBlanca and Gianni House is the white building with blue shutters at the end of the block.
If you miss the Renault stop, from the Recanati bus station we're 10 minutes by foot. Exit the bus station and go straight on the main street (Consolare Valeria), then take your first right and then the next right again after that at the bus stop, and Gianni House is just 20m beyond the bus stop.

From the Train Station, take a bus towards the GIARDINI-RECANATI bus station, about ten minutes. Get off at the stop before the bus station, named RENAULT bus stop. Across the main street, you can see a sweet shop named CASABLANCA MASSIMO. Go down to the street a few steps only, and Gianni house is there, the white building at 47 Via Pergusa.
From CATANIA airport take a bus, direction Taormina-Giardini-Naxos-RECANATI bus station.
Get off at the last stop before the station, named RENAULT bus stop. Across the street, go down a few steps only. Gianni house is there, the white building with blue windows on the corner. 47 Via Pergusa

From Trapani Airport, take a local bus to the train station. From there, you can take a bus to the Palermo bus station, then take another bus to Messina, and finally a bus to Giardini-Naxos. Or, take a train from the Trapani train station to Palermo, and take another train from Palermo to Catania. There, you can get a bus to Giardini-Naxos. One stop before the Recanati bus station, Renault bus stop, get off and look across the street. Gianni House is down the hill a few steps only, on the corner.

By car:

From Trapani go to Palermo, and then take the Palermo - Catania motorway. Then take the Catania - Messina motorway exit at 'Giardini Naxos', and just go ahead for about 1 km. Arrive at the main street (named SS 114). Turn left and go straight on about 500 meters. Then take the second left, (close to the SWEET SHOP NAMED 'CASABLANCA' and BUS STOP RENAULT ). Just at the corner, the white building with blue windows is 'GIANNI HOUSE' 47 Via Pergusa.
