BED BUGS in room no.1 !! Perfect location, beautiful hostel and breakfast fantastic. But if you ever had experience with them & know blood stains on bed linen then be aware! Ok,u may be lucky, they don't drink everybody's blood. I was alone in a big room (of probably 12 beds) so tried 2 beds remotely located from each other but both had bugs. No risk more, i took the mattress straight to the floor and slept with light on (in theory light should keep them away but not always.

L'auberge est sympa, située dans les hauteurs de la ville. Vue agréable. En revanche, l'accueil... Attendre une heure avant d'être accueillis par les propriétaires. Et aucune excuse... Heureusement, j'attendais avec un sympathique couple d'Italiens. Mais ce n'est pas professionnel et pas respectueux de votre part envers les voyageurs. Vous auriez pu au moins prévenir avant, que vous n'étiez pas disponibles de telle heure à telle heure. Je n'aurais pas attendu, je me serais balladé dans Noto.

O albergue mais bonito da Italia que já visitei. Davide e Elena são extremamente simpáticos e atentos às necessidades dos hóspedes! A cidade é maravilhosa, a comida incrível, e a gente de Noto muito receptiva!

The staff are fantastic, incredibly friendly and helpful. The location is wonderful right behind the cathedral. The breakfast was very good - cereals, yogurt, bread, cakes, juice, tea/coffee, etc. The only issue I had was the shower in the women's dorm was broken and the showerhead removed so the water was just coming straight out of the pipe. The shower also leaked water into the dorm room which was a bit annoying.
