the hostel is seven years old but looks new. hostel is a bit far from city center of Sorrento. I had problem to find it. so just walk straight the road " corso Italia" and then turn left when you arrive to the church " chiesa di s.biagio". one guy working in a shop near the church helped me. I went inside his shop and without asking anything, the guy said to me: seven hostel? I am sure hundred people asked him the same question. the hostel gave me good information to do the path of Gods.
Really nice here - it's huge and so clean and modern, and the roof terrace is fantastic with really nice views. Met some really cool people here and we had a red wine party on the roof one night! And there are a few food tours you can book through the hostel, some of the staff are pretty helpful! And the walk into town really isn't too bad, maybe 20-30 minutes but it's fine, otherwise you can catch a quick train. Loved it!
Amazing staff with the best pasta dishes I've tasted in Italy! Amazing views from rooftop with two separate sections, one of the sea view and another higher section for the mountains. Super clean with great facilities! 10 minutes walk and easy from train station. Only downside was shower doors are see through but just hang your towel over the door and it's easily solved! Thanks for having us stay and gorgeous simple breakfast! Jordan & Jenny , room serenity xxx
Staff were unfriendly, and it was too far from Sorrento. Although, the bar tender has to be one of the nicest men in all of Italy (I assume he is the manager of this hostel). I was overall satisfied with the services and the croissants that are serve at breakfast are wonderful (they are made at the hostel). Extended my stay here about 3 times. And the sunset on the balcony is wonderful, they definitely need to set up a bar there!
Fantastic hostel. More like a hotel for backpackers and I mean that in a good way. Atmosphere is really neat, everyone raves about the rooftop but I forgot to go up there. The bar area is great and that's where I met a few people. Drinks are inexpensive and service is great. Rooms are very large, have plugs by each bed and lockers, I stayed in the 10 bed mixed. You'll never wait for a shower, great hot water. I would have stayed longer if I knew how good this was.
was clean had great facilities. hard to meet people but other then that it was good. the location was one stop from Sorrento on the train and the staff were helpful. having to leave is a bit annoying during the day but would stay again.
Great hostel, however the worst part about it was the atmosphere. The place was far too big to promote socialising.
super snazzy for a hostel - great rooftop, air con in rooms, bathrooms really clean and nice. Unfortunately no kitchen but breakfast is provided. very relaxing atmosphere and easy to get to Sorrento.
Okay Hostel, but rooftopbar was closed, which was one of the reasons why we booked it. Staff wasn't very helpful, hostel felt more like a hotel. The restaurant in the hostel was good and the waiter/barman super friendly!
Great hostel, with nice and clean rooms, amazing structure for relaxing, with a perfect terrace to watch the sun set and fairly close to the train station to Sorrento. Overall a very good experience and would definitely stay again.
Quite a posh hostel considering the price. Great facilities, computers, beds, bathrooms, laundry - all great. Food is ok and bar would have more drinks sales if they lowered their prices a bit. Staff all nice except one girl on reception with dark curly hair (could work on friendliness). Door doesn't close unless you push very hard so room was often open. Lockers on top bunks a bit awkward. Great area, tbh sorrento is a bit overrated (positano nicer) Good supermarket. Shower screens see-through.
My stay at seven hostel was comfortable. The rooms were clean, there was a nice bar and dinner that you could pay for, a nice common area and roof top seats. The location was a 15 minute walk to the train station where trains come to take you into sorrento every 45 minutes. Or you could walk to sorrento, a 40 minute walk. The location wasn't horrible, but the prices were high for it's subpar location. The included breakfast was always stocked, but it wasn't good- just breads. Prices too high.
Beautifully presented. Great food in evening. Clean rooms. Clean bathrooms. Amazing sun terrace. 10mins to train station. 30mins walk to Sorrento. Free public beach/swimming nearby! Close to supermarket. Great place to meet people. Only quip is some of the staff. Manager (I think - guy with man bun) was lovely, always smiling and helpful. Female receptionist, useless/unfriendly/rude. Male with glasses told us wrong info about bus to Napoli airport and was unfriendly. Would 100% go back though!
Location isn't great as most transport options into Amalfi begin from Sorrento - a 30min walk or 10min walk/5min train away - It wasn't uncommon to wait 30mins for train! The hostel itself is great though. Rooms are big, clean and set out in a thoughtful way - big lockers within reach of bed. The layout also gives you some privacy, even in a 10bed dorm! The rooftop is great at sunset and their pastas are delicious/well priced. Staff are functional but not will not go out of way for area advice!
The building itself has great large rooms and the rooftop deck has a great view. But it'slacking atmosphere. If you get a top bunk using the lockers becomes very difficult. As the locker is at the same height. Staff at the front desk can be very dismissive. There are no organised activities like pub crawls which would be useful as the hostel is a 20 min walk out of Sorrento and it's difficult to know where to go. It's also good to note that the doors on the showers are partially see-through..
very good hostel clean realaxing amazing terrace good location for exploring the amalfi coast very cheap reastraunt round the corner amazing sunsets from the roof big dorms breakfast included nothing really bad to say about the place.
Absolutely loved this hostel, was difficult to tell I was staying at one and not a hotel! Layout of the rooms are excellent, staff were incredibly friendly and welcoming! Met some really great people and the general atmosphere was really good. If I ever return to Sorrento, I will 100% be staying here again.

Good location, nice big rooms. Big lockers for backpacks which was really handy! If you needed to do washing it was a bit expensive which was our only downside but other than that, pretty good.
