It's very late in the season so the hostel was practically empty. The staff were great, with plenty of recommendations on what to do, where to eat etc... I would happily stay there again.
Awesome hostel in a beautiful place. I know more than one person who was a guest here and stayed on longer than expected. Best views of Positano from the deck. Great deals at the bar. Peter even took a bunch of us to the Path of the Gods. Grocery stores 2 minutes away, great restaurant right across the street.
I had the most beautiful time at Brikette, the hostel has a beautiful view across the positano bay and is so laid back you can come and o as you please. The owners are keen hikers and encourage you to take note of the beautiful coastline and there hundreds of walks hikes surrounding, suitable for everyone. I can not recommend this place enough.
We had an amazing stay at Brikette! We spent my birthday there, the staff were wonderful, friendly and so helpful! The location is perfect, we stayed in a great 6 bed dorm with an ensuite, balcony and ocean view. It was quiet while we were there as it was the end of the season but we still met some great people. We definitely recommend this hostel!!
Most wonderful place I have stayed in a long time. Owners Cristiana and Pete are amazing people who actively ensure that all guests have an amazing time!!! The hiking above the hostel is the most fun hiking I have done in a long time and Pete has great suggestions to make sure you never do the same route twice. Would stay here again and am sad to not have the time to go back now. The breakfast is great and filling at €5, anything Cristiana makes is delicious!
I did love this hostel it was very nice. The cook is the bomb. Just one lil problem was the beds that's it.

You will never find a more wonderful host than Cristiana & Peter - they are genuine & kind, resourceful & considerate, makes you feel like visiting friends! Peter has a wealth of knowledge and Cristiana is simply the BEST cook - I loved waking up every morning to the blue sky and the smell of her cooking! Hostels are scarce in the region and Positano is an ideal base - you won't find a better value than Brikette. And the million $ view from the balcony!! I simply fell in love with place/people!!
Amazing, amazing hostel where everyone's great and easy to talk to. The location though good for entering and leaving Positano (sorta at the 'mouth' of the island), makes getting to nearby hot spots like the beaches quite a huge workout. Having said that, I would stay here again for sure next time I visit.
Amazing location and view! Excellent value for money compared to hotels in Positano. Very helpful staff and yummy breakfast!
（1）They have a beautiful balcony with lots of flowers and superb view of the sea!!! （2）The breakfast was good with reasonable price. （3）'Deposit luggage' service is free for half day. （4）They scarcely have hot shower for female bathroom at night! The water is cold! (But I heard men has hot shower......) 1、他家的阳台非常漂亮，种了很多花草，正对着壮美的大海！！！ 2、早餐还好，价格适中。 3、提供半天免费存包服务。 4、女冲凉房晚上一般没有热水洗澡！水挺凉的！（听说男冲凉房有热水......）
Our room didn't have windows however we didn't feel the need to be inside unless we were sleeping. There is a great deck that was an awesome place to hang out and meet people with a cheap and delicious restaurant next door! We recommend The Brikette!!
dont book the cheapest dorm: Terrible room. No window, very noisy beds so I woke up all the time, and bad madresses.
A great hostel! The balcony view is incredible, and the staff were great. The bar (with cheap drinks) was a bonus, and the 5 euro breakfast was delicious! Will definitely come back :)
The hostel is in a perfect location in Positano. I highly recommend just based on location. The bathrooms were pissy dirty at times and the water did not get hot. I stayed in a five bed with a view. Everything is a pay for service, breakfast, luggage storage. towel so just be prepared. I wanted to stay one extra night and they wanted to charge me more than what they were asking for on hostelworld.
really lovely hostel and the view is amazing! a little pricey for dorm rooms! wifi wasn't great either. however, our stay in Positano was just excellent overall, what a beautiful place!
Brikette has an amazing view from the common area outdoor deck. The problem with that is when it rains there is nowhere to have breakfast. It's close to the bus stop which is good. But there's close to 1000 steps down to the beach then the climb back up. There is fingerprint locks on the doors. They should have invested in better bunk beds as they are old and plastic on matress is terrible 8 people moving around on plastic is loud and very hot in rooms aswell. I would not recommend staying here.
