Too far away from center of Sorrento, hostel difficult to find and no-one on hostel site to readily provide information and answer questions. I met owner/manager on arrival and that was it.

거리가 꽤 멀어서 찾아가긴 힘들었지만 그 외엔 다 좋았어요 사람이 많이 없어서 적은가격에 2인실로 쓸수있는 행운이!!!! 좋았네용

The hostel was great. The place was very cozy, and the lady there was very helpful. The rooms are clean, small and well furnished. There is a great common area with kitchen where you can socialize. Indeed, it is in S. Agnello, not Sorrento, but this is clearly indicated in the directions, and it's not too far. Whoever had problems did not read carefully.


Only if you can endure 2 kms uphills stone-paved narrow road, the hostel may worth it. We gave up this hostel on the way we go from train station to it.


The hostel information says that it is close to a bus stop but it doesn't say this bus stop is a very small line that only runs to Sorrento until 18 hours in the afternoon, so if you don't have a car or a motorino you won't be able to move around because on foot Sorrento is so far.


Would not stay here again. Directions are very misleading as it is no where near the station! It is actually about 2km of walking uphill. The hot water didn't work in the shower and the kitchen didn't have any bowls or appliances apart from a mini fridge, not even a kettle! The owner was rude and unhelpful and didn't give us keys when we first checked in. Not worth the money.

Much farther from the train station than expected and the directions are not clear. There is no citrus garden that is mentioned in the desceiption. The room was nice enough and got to meet other travellers while staying there. The staff consisted of one woman who we only saw at check in and left no way to contact her. Location was good enough but expect to spend money on buses and trains
