This was a great place to stay in a cozy small town. People were so friendly and always ready with a smile. The host was very accommodating and provided great advice on what to do on our visit. It is very clean and in a very nice location in the center of the town square. Atrani is a beautiful town and the perfect place to enjoy the Amalfi coast. Breakfast is included and was delicious. Our hosts were so kind. We had a great stay and can't wait to plan our return visit! We loved out trip!

The owner is nice. Have a great time with him and the beautiful town there.


Great spot in Atrani just outside Amalfi. I reckon it's better to stay here than in Positano which is super touristy. From Atrani it's easy to reach Ravello and Amalfi. Make sure to do the Sentiero degli Dei walk. Great breakfast and the two Italian brothers who run it are fantastic. Only downside is the rooms are very basic - eg Our only window opened onto another room and the shower has no curtain so water goes everywhere. Hence not ideal for a honeymoon!


We had a lovely stay in A Scalinatella. No wi-fi or a/c in the bedroom and no kitchen was frustrating, but the wi-fi was strong by main reception. The hostel is situated in Atrani (rather than Almalfi), though just 10 mins round the corner/in the next bay. We preferred it here, as it allowed for a much quiter breakfast / evening drink, and only venture into more tourist heavy Almalfi for certain restaurants, or when desired. Staff were lovely. Overall stay was lovely, minor gripe on facilities
