The Yard Hostel (Youth Hostel)
This hostel is destined for travelers like you, curious and passionate, whatever the reason for your trip … whoever you are: lonely globetrotter or in a group with friends, family or colleagues. This place started from a passion, setting a clear goal. With sacrifices and hard work this “great little” metropolitan oasis in the center of Catania was created! A hostel lively, young and familiar. A place where you can feel at home.
The Yard Hostel is located in a late 19th century building on Viale XX Settembre, a very central street in Catania from which you can easily reach the major places of historical / cultural interest, the shopping streets and historic markets and the nightlife of Catania.
A few steps on foot from via Etnea, via Umberto, from the “Giardino Bellini”, from the ancient Botanical Garden, Piazza Duomo at 5 minutes and the sea at 10. Bus, metro and bus stops in the immediate vicinity. The hostel’s strength is undoubtedly its wonderful garden: Lemon and mandarin trees, mint, basil and avocado and colorful flowers with an intoxicating scent will make you enter a “parallel” world.
An extraordinary “Metropolitan Garden”, one of a kind and difficult to find in the historic center, a stone’s throw from everything and at the same time a place to regenerate, get lost and find yourself!
Colorful sofas and retro-style armchairs will welcome you making you travel with your mind to the eclectic 70s. The owners of the hostel are committed to carefully choosing original pieces of the time and restored recycled materials. The garden also offers a barbecue area for fantastic barbecues to be enjoyed in the company of friends and guests! The hostel’s bar, overlooking the garden: a little garage, a little museum full of details and with an unconventional design, is the place where you can share your free time with excellent beers, wine, cocktails, music and games! The large social table underlines the desire to involve you in sharing time and space!
