Was upgraded from hostel to private hotel room as end of season at no extra charge, was alone but staff were very very sweet , pool area great and restaurant and bar yummy. 1/2 hr walk to town


It's very beautiful here! If there are only two things we should complain, that could be the distance from the hostel to port or train station and the wifi signal.


There is no such thing as perfection but it is at this hostel! Staff were very friendly and helpful, and willing to go above and beyond to assist. It is conviniently located to pretty much anywhere. The outside patio/garden along with the pool and bar are definitely bonus! Definitely will be back again when in Sorrento and highly recommended to others. Miguel and Miguel at the desk were super fabulous! Thank you!


This place isn't too far from town, but there is a long dark road you have to walk down and I didn't really like that at night being a solo traveler. The beds were the most uncomfortable I've slept in. You could feel every spring in your back. Other then that it was great! The pool was clean and the long haired guy at the front desk gave fantastic advice on what to do!


Front desk helped and printed a weeks worth of travel Pool side a treat 4 bed dorm wit he suite and balcony so quiet and with lo able lockers Full breakfast only 5 euro Easy access to pompei amalfi etc The antithesis of Naples I real holiday spot


I was so amazed by this hostel, it was the best so far. Such a nice and clean place! The dorms were fantastic, the pool they had was wonderful, the staff went out of their way to help me with things and we super friendly, making me feel so welcome.Atmosphere was really good. Took a sickie from work just so i could stay one more night! Made friendships will people i met there that will last a lifetime. Definitely will be coming back one day in the future!


i loved staying here, i hope to return next year!! Thanks especially to Michel on the front desk for being such a legend!! if the mattress was less springy it would be perfect!

I had a great time at Florida. It's much more like a hotel so there's no place for preparing your own meals, but there's a great pool, and you can still make good friends, as people always get together for a beer in the bar by the pool or in the garden. The staff is very helpful also.


excellent stuff, and facilities and cleanliness are really of a hotel standard, a luxury for us backpackers used to hostels. the low part obviously is its more a hotel than a hostel, so there is no common areas to hang arround,or kitchen, or fridge or anywhere to eat your own stuff. Also, swimming pool closes at 6, which is the hour you usually arrive. location is a bit far from town, but really near one of the best panoramic views of the city and beautifull sorroundings. totally recommend it


Very nice experience, did not like how pushy the guy at the reception desk is. We chose not to do any tours for Capri and you could tell his annoyance. Although the room is very clean and very nice. Would recommend.

Dear friend, you were asking to a cheap solution to visit Capri and we just suggested the best way to save some euros as you told us you were travelling in a budget. And in the same time to not have a standard "mass tourism" experience. Anyway we are so glad you have enjoyed your quick stay here with us. Ciao!


Watch out for the head waiter in restaurant. He tried to get us to order "off menu" meal at twice regular price .

Ciao! Just to be clear: fresh fish of the day is always "off menu" because is not available every single day and it may change the kind of fish everyday. In every restaurant "fresh fish of the day" is more expensive. We could not sell it at 7/8 euro like other dishes. We look forward to welcoming you again here in future. Ciao!


It's a hotel with a few dorm rooms. suited me and my boyfriend perfectly! We laid by the pool for 5 days... Perfecto!


This is an amazing hostel/hotel, do not worry for being "far" from the city center... it's just a 10min walk and it's a nice walk. There is a cool pool and the guys from de Bar are great! Also the front desk staff who help me with tours, excursions, etc. Thank you Florida staff!
