Location is very not convenient , even if you have your own car, no parking - probably only when all neighbours are gone. Room service is the worst, no fresh towels, no soap, without making bad, and no toilet paper ;) And the manure smell from neighbourhood... Every postive comment about this hostel must be added by the owners. Better find another one. Only WLAN and AirCo were positive.


The hostel was lovely, it's just that it's a 30 min walk to the train station and nothing is around your hostel, or much in Sant'Agnello. But a quick train to Sorrento for cheap and relatively easy access to all other Amalfi coast towns. Overall I can't complain. Everyone was very friendly

This Hostel is closed. DO NOT BOOK. You will lose your money, and walk two miles up a hill trying to find it.

Hi. I booked your hostel for two nights(30th and 31th Dec, 2014). But there was no bus connection on that day so I called to cancel the booking on the morning of 30th. And one of your worker said that I should pay half of the whole booking price which is 24 euro. So I agreed about and check that you took 24 euro from my visa card. But you took another 45 euro from my account this week. I already sent email to you but you didn't reply. I want to solve this problem. Thanks.


Great stay for such a great price! As others have said, it is definitely a walk up to it but we actually enjoyed the walk. The beds are a bit hard but it's a clean place to sleep that is cheap, safe and just what you need.


We were only there for one night, the lady who owns it is really nice and very accommodating and the room was awesome. But note it is a long walk up the road if the local bus is done for the night. Also, this hostel is NOT in Sorrento it is in the town next to it.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Thank you for your comment and for being my guest, I cherish the judgment of my guests. But I want to point out that it is not difficult to get to the hostel also because in the directions you will find a detailed description of the places and how to get to the hostel to give groups the possibility of being able to organize my ostiti time. thanks again his comment.


Bit of a walk up the hill but nice clean place. Super nice staff. Would stay there again.


a real pity of place as it is outside Sorrento itself, almost 45 minutes walking from hostel to central Sorrento, not a good idea in the summer hot or if you got a heavy lugage. the kitchen is a small one and you can not cook really, just boile something and the fridge is a small apartement one. recomended only if you are a pennyless near there are farms and with the brezze come some odors not exactly chanel ones and at night mosquitos. wen you arrive to the place have to call the nice lady.


The place is just beautiful and the owner is very nice and kind. The only recommendation is to go by taxi (only if you have luggage) from the station because the road Is up the mountain but It's worth. Just be careful with taxi drivers and what they pretend to charge. Just call the hostel before arriving. The rest of out stay we walked up and down, very pretty road. We really enjoyed our stay.


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

had the best time ever here. the atmosphere in the hostel was so friendly and the staff were excellent. planning to head back there in few weeks loved it so much. take the trip to capri if you go there! just amazing!


The hostel was a long way away from anything else, and had no other guests. Reception is only open from 8:00-9:00 and 20:00-21:00. If you want to actually see anything other than the back garden, you either have to take a long, hot hike or wait for the death-defying city bus to come, once every two hours. Not at all recommended.


staff was very helpful and attentive when they were around, which was only really 2 hours of the morning, before 10am. it was really really quiet here and about a ten minute bus ride and then a fifteen minute walk up a pretty steep hill, so it's kind of out of the way. but it was clean!


-out of ten hostels, this was tied for the WORST -proprietor was a nice person but was disorganized and not at reception when we arrived -this is a HIKE away from the train station--you have to walk up a huge hill on a narrow road, very unsafe at night!-the hostel advertises a shuttle bus but NO BUS was available for us -the hostel was in poor condition and not very clean -however, it was very cheap and you could tell the proprietor wanted to make you happy -breakfast was ok--packaged foods
