Great value for money. Got all the perks of staying in a hotel but for a reasonable price. Dorms were spacious, clean and great security. Good breakfast, swimming pool and recommendations given. Location is a little bit out of town but still an easy walk to Sorrento and back. Would stay again.


Clean and secure rooms with lockers. Great staff who are happy to help you out. A 10-15min walk from the heart of the city, but the hotel itself is beautiful and I enjoyed hanging out there. Restaurant and bar are great value (amazing seafood pasta dishes!). Florida is really a hotel and only a few of the rooms are dorms so doesn't have that hostel atmosphere.


We stayed in an 8 person dorm, which was a bit squishy but to be expected. A bit of a walk out of the centre. The staff were friendly and helpful especially when organising our day trip to Capri. Wifi was a bit patchy. Not a lot of atmosphere, quite a few families and older couples there as well as some young people. The pool was nice especially with the restaurant right next to it.


The staff were good except the medium length Hair guy was rude. Do not do the tours they offer at the front desk. The tour wasn't worth it and we didn't even go to the blue grotto on the BLUE GROTTO TOUR because apparently when our guide asked if we wanted to go we didn't want to?! Not true he just couldn't be bothered going.


I had a wonderful stay at Florida Hostel. The front desk was helpful with giving information and recommendation for things to see and do. They also have special dinner nights during the week which saved a trip into the town for a meal.

great having access to hotel facilities for a hostel price. staff are super helpful. only downsides are everyone keeps to themselves a bit but if you have good people in your dorm it would be sweet. the under 30s Capri trip is also amazing


Great value for money. Quaint location. Pizza night is fantastic. Staff are very friendly and helpful, especially the receptionist. Only negative - would be good of towels and soap were provided.


I had a great stay in this hostel- the staff were helpful and it was in a perfect location to take day trips to Amalfi and Capri. While there is a hostel dorm (and I met some very cool people), it has more of a hotel/family feel by the pool and bar. Would absolutely stay again!


Had such a great stay here. I was by myself and met some cool people in the dorms. As this is a hotel you can take advantage of the facilities for a cheaper cost. It's close to the main area and Sorrento beach, as well as the bus to Positano and Amalfi. Would definelty recommend.


More of a hotel than a hostel with the shared hostel rooms being just at the back of the pool area in the garden. Nice bar and facilities a real steal for the price. Clean and well placed in sorrento - very spacious rooms.


no kitchen nor refrigerator


This was a fine hostel, more of a hotel with a pool which was nice. Handy location although super squeeky beds.


I enjoyed my stay at Florida, some of the staff - in particular the morning main man on desk and one of the waiters were particularly helpful and friendly and made some great recommendations for my time there, helping me organise it. The aircon played up a bit turning itself off in middle of night so woke up over heating, and bathroom was not the cleanest - but that was probably not due to fault of hostel staff!!


It was difficult to find, but apart from that we had a great stay. Staff were friendly and helpful and the hostel room was nice and secure. The use of a pool was great.

Dorms are very dirty : - shower flowering - quality of bed not very good - no sheet provided - curtains not very good : disturbed by daylight Global feeling about the hotel : - quite good with the swimming pool space (but closes too early) - a lot of american, quite old decoration - a good choice of different trips (boat trips....)


Really nice hotel, very clean, friendly & very helpful staff, great pool! It is a hotel so there are a lot of families, but within the dorm rooms I found a great bunch to hang out with. Only downside is that there is no kitchen. Little pricey, but 100% worth it


Awesome place. Very relaxed, good pool. Feels like a hotel. Staff are super helpful


I Loved!! Definitely will stay here again. The Staff is amazing, always ready to help you. Very Comfy and sunny bedroom. Own parkinglot, pool, bar and restaurant. Very good cost/benefit


A few dorm rooms within a hotel. The hotel facilities were pretty good with restaurant and pool however it seems they have neglected the dorms and feels like it's just something they do on the side. On arrival our dorm didn't appear clean and was just generally not an inviting space to be in.


The best hostel of our 5 week journey! We were astonished by how amazing this place was, it is literally a hotel but with bunk beds instead of normal beds in the rooms. A lovely pool, very peaceful with a nice restaurant and a poolside cafe. Couldn't recommend it enough, worth every penny!
