The stay was ok. Rooms were clean. Stuff didn't speak english, except the lady at the reception. The atmosphere at the hostel was somewhat weird. Every evening funny people assembled in the lobby, started doing their funny businesses (sometimes inappropriate for common areas). Another important aspect is that noone semed to bother about going outside for a smoke, so if you're unlucky to have a smoking neighbour - it's ur problem. And yes, common showers are a bit uncomfortable.

It was a good stay. Clean and great staff. It's Great for the price you pay!
I understand this is not a hotel. I have traveled extensively. This is the worst place I have ever stayed in. It is a communal house for the un employed and disadvantaged. It is not a stereo typical travellers hostel. Mattress putrid and smelly. No security. People off the street walking in and smoking in main areas. Dogs in my room. Booked two nights. Walked out at 7am after first night. Requested my money back it was that bad. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS DUMP TO ANYONE! Do not stay here!
Friendly staff. Simple but good value for money. Large rooms, good beds, individual lockers with keys for each guest. Negative point: lady's showers are all together with no separation between each shower. A few small improvements could make a big difference: pillows could be replaced for newer ones and an extra motion sensor could be added to the bathroom on the direction of the showers (if you are showering and there is no one else in the toilet, the light goes off after about 5 min).
We booked a ten-bed-room and got a 14-bed-room for same price. The bathroom was not very clean, especially in the morning. The bedsheeds were very dirty with blood stains and rotten fruits under the bed. Locker were good.
Pretty bad hostel would have potential to be an awesome hostel! First they need to improve the little things like getting toliet seats and getting better showers I didn't care that much but I noticed a lot of people did. It is not really a social hostel most people there are family's that live there so hard to meet people if they had a bar or organised activities I think it would help a lot and maybe put all the people living there in one room and travellers in other room so we can meet others
Decent hostel, nice staff, cool roommates. Cool as long as you don't mind showering with folks ;)
I love the cheap price but dislike the no privacy shower room. Also, there's no kitchen available
I had a decent stay at this hostel. Nice facility for how cheap it was. I used the hostel mainly for coming and going. It is a central place to stay for visiting the other towns nearby. There is a ferry/buses 10 minute maximum walk from the hostel.

Very basic, but good value for money. Staff was helpfull. Minuspoint was the open shower rooms, might not be everyone's cup of tea. And the shared room was a bit noisy.
There were homeless staying there but we were in a different room so no problem. The room smelt like smoke and the female showers are all in a row with not even a shower curtain separating them, plus the bathroom light switches off automatically in the middle of your shower so I had to shower in the dark. Sheets didnt look particularly clean and the pillow was almost flat from being worn out. Close to breakfast bars, two supermarkets and the train station and there are vending machines
Pretty good. Just need more people around to make a better atmosphere.
It had a lot of smell of humidity and the ladies showers werent separated. You had to shower next to another girl!!! But they were really nice And gave us a private room when we paid a shared!
Very nice place. Staff was friendly and told us anything we needed to know. Internet was a little weird cuz you had to get a password and id and enter it everytime. Rather than a simple wifi log on. But free either way. Only signal in lobby. No kitchen but a small fridge which we didnt know about. Rooms were nice. But bathrooms werent as great. No toilet seats in mens bathrooms. But worth the money for sure. Kind of hard to find because there is only a small sign. Close to train stationand bus
Good value hostel. Nothing wrong with it, but it's obviously not a 5 star hotel. Close to bus transport to the Amalfi Coast, or a short walk to the pier to take a ferry. The staff were very friendly.
A very good location about 15 minutes from the train station. Staff is friendly and helpful and the facilities are way above average. Very large storage lockers that can be locked. Clean toilets and showers. A large and comfortable common area and only there can you get wifi. Drawbacks are no kitchen facilities nor towels. Definitely will stay here again.
