Best Hostel in Europe!!!

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on February 2, 2008

AMAZING!!! This was the best place I stayed in Italy!! My room had a balcony that overlooked the beautiful Mediterranean Sea!! I met three of the most amazing people here - and we all bonded together and traveled together around the area for the next three days! The food is amazing - the dining room is actually on a large deck overlooking the Sea. Every morning I had the best crepes filled with Nutella - YUM!! And at night we all had various meals [the best risotto I've ever had] and then we all drank the night away!! The Limoncellos were amazing - as was the cheap wine!! =D If ever in Positano - you really MUST stay here!!! I LOVED it!!!! :)

Unique Quality: AMAZING views!! Great tour packages of Capri. Friendly staff - very nice rooms!

Directions: Get off at the first bus stop in Positano [just a little hint, because i was slightly confused at which stop to get off at] ;) - then just walk up the hill a little, and it'll be on your left.

Positano's Only Hostel

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 17, 2006

I spent about 2.5 weeks at this hostel during the summer of 2005. The service was very friendly and the place was clean and modern. The showers were good, my bed was comfortable...and yes, it is the only hostel in Positano.

It costs about 25 euros a night for a dorm bed, and that includes a croissant and drink for breakfast. There is a lock out all day, which could be a pain if you had a late night and just want to sleep...or spend the afternoon getting caught up on laundry or whatever. There is no kitchen, which makes eating in positano very expensive because one must resort to restaurants (although there are little shops that make fantastic sandwhiches for 3 or 4 euros that you can grab for lunch).

Just to note, I caught a look at some of their other rooms while I was there...there is a really nice double room which includes a balcony with a panoramic view of the ocean and village and private ensuite....at an excellent price compared to the rest of positano. Then they have doubles and twins at the back of the building, they aren't so nice or inviting. If you can, request the double at the front that overlooks the ocean, the others are rather gloomy.

They have internet access...but it's pricey, internet anywhere in positano is expensive...I think it ran about 4 euros for 30 minutes.

Because Positano is built on huge hill/small mountain and the hostel is at the top it means you will have quite a hike to get to the beach...luckily there are stairs in various places that go almost straight down the cliffs, rather than having to follow the winding road all the way down. As for going up again....ha! in that heat, no way! I took the bus, it's only 1 euro for the trip up and it runs every 30 minutes. You could also hitch a ride on the back of a motorcycle if you are female, the guys would be very happy to have you join them for the trip to the top.

Unique Quality: A large terrace with spectacular views of the town and the ocean.

Directions: Get off the bus at the Bar Internationale (everyone here knows where it is so just say the word and someone will point it out). The hostel is about 20 metres up the road from the bar.
