One of the Best hostels in Italy located in the best place to plan your holiday in eastern Sicily. At just 500m from the bus and train central station, from here all of Sicily is easy to reach (Syracuse 1h by bus, Taormina 1h by bus, Palermo 2,5h by bus). The C.C.Ly hostel (which stands for "Cheap and Chic Lounge Youth Hostel") is the perfect combination between a '60 years style design and a really comfortable place where you'll have all you need to enjoy your Sicilian holiday as best as possible, included a wonderful view of Etna!

Ciao travelers- Catania welcomes you to our Volcanic city.
The history of the city has always been strongly linked to Mt Etna volcano. Thus the Catanese people have admiration and respect for "The Mountain". The city already destroyed 7 times by Etna in the last 2500 years has always been rebuilt . Yes, it seems Catanese people want to live here and only here!!
Walking in the city, you can see archeological digs and learn more about the previous ancient cities (Greeks, Romans..) underneath the actual city. Like most of Sicily, Catania is renowned for its beautiful Baroque city center, for its landscapes (seaside and Mt Etna), history (Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Arabians, Normans, Spanish, etc..) and of course the mediterranean weather.
Catania, the cradle of theatre and music, is a city to experience both by day and by night. In the day, when the sun shines, the city's Baroque palaces, and their glistening black lava and white limestone dominate the view. When the evening comes, the clubs open and the squares fill up with people.
Come Experience Catania!
Prices are per person per night.

IMPORTANT: Don't ask the locals the way! The square name had been recently changed so everybody knows a place of almost the same name but at the opposite side of city!


Take bus number 457 (be sure to buy your ticket first from the ticket-office.) The bus-stop is at the end of Arrivals, found at the end of the airport building on the right.

Subject of course to traffic conditions and time of day, the journey will take roughly 10 - 20 minutes, terminating at Catania Central Station.


Outside the station, you will see a large, circular fountain with statues. Crossing the road, take the road facing you when you cross, called Via Marchese di Casalotto. Walk for approximately 500 metres along Via Marchese di Casalotto until you come to a small square called Piazza G. Falcone. You will see a church with a cupola on the right, and on the left you will find the hostel. (If you should get lost, call us for directions!)


Take the road called Viale Martiri della Libertà (wide street) on your left. At the point where the road intersects with Via Francesco Crispi (at this point you should already see the church), turn left. After approximately 50 meters, you will see on the RIGHT a small church with a cupola. The church is in a very small square called piazza Falcone.
The entrance to the hostel faces the church.

Located Near

Catania has been destroyed 7 times by Etna. Every time it was rebuilt so it and has therefore developed more styles: greek, roman, mediaval, modern and contemporary. It's visible in different places in the city, like the Benedictine Monastery (the second biggest in Europe), the roman theatre, the odeon and the baroque churches. Catania is split between modern and really traditional sites (like the fish market).
