Welcome to our hostel

Agora Hostel is situated in the heart of Catania on a historic square next to the “Pescheria”, a popular fish market. It’s a short walking distance from Piazza Duomo with the cathedral of Saint Agatha and the elephant statue. The ruins of the “roman baths dell’ Indirizzo” are right opposite the hostel. The hostel building back to the early 1800′s and the rooms have “royal” vaulted ceilings and antique decorated tiled floors. Just a few steps from Hostel Agora’s entrance, you can catch buses to/from Catania Fontanarossa Airport, to/from the main Sicilian cities and nearby beaches. It’s also very close to the port.

The rooms are furnished with bunk beds. Lockers, light-point and power socket for each bed. All the dorms are with shared bathroom. All rooms have views of Catania’s historic centre, and some overlook the Roman baths. Guests can enjoy free use of the kitchen, 24 hours reception, free internet, free WI-FI and access to ETNA excursions. The Amenano River flows right through the Agora’s underground restaurant, which serves traditional regional meals. There is also the bar which is one of the most popular in Catania.

Check out the hostel’s information desk for organized day trips to Etna, Taormina, Siracusa, Noto and many more. After a day of sightseeing come back and enjoy live music at the Agora Hostel bar.

Bitte noch für stabiles WLAN auch im 1. stock sorgen. Ansonsten etwas zu hellhörig. Positiv: äußerst freundliches und kompetentes Personal! Preis gut.
