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

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

My friend and i were the only ones staying here, but it was still great! The first walk up to the place was long, but there is a bus! Really enjoyed my stay here.

This hostel had terrible directions, and was in a very far off location. It adverstised a 24 hour reception but when we returned we were locked out as the man running reception was in Naples! So we could not leave the Hostel as our bags were locked in the reception. Our room was a 4 person dorm with two bunks and a double bed so we had to sleep in the same bed together. Also is very very unclean and smelled terrible. However breakfast was good.

This place was very peaceful and in a quiet square in Sant Agnello. Very quiet so you have to make your own fun.

this hostel is FAR FAR away!!!!! but as mad as i was treking 20min up the hill and getting there n finding reception closed from 11.30 til 8pm (!!!) the staff were great and they did really help us out so couldnt stay mad long. wouldnt recomend it to a single traveller but family or groups definatly! it was a beautiful locations, decent breakfast and really nice ppl working there and once we found the shortcut walk wasnt so bad.

About 15 min walk up a slight hill from the train station. Directions are not very clear so we had to call and get the owners to pick us up when we got lost. Reception only open in the morning and then from 7pm-11pm. Rooms are large, and bathrooms are spacious too. There is a little supermarket about 50m from hostel which is handy.

This hostel is not in Sorrento, it is in a town at the train stop just before Sorrento. The directions on the website seem to indicate that it is right near the train station - IT IS NOT. it is so far away by foot. We followed the signs, but ended up calling hostel for more directions. Turns out we were following directions for cars. There is a short cut which is not signposted. Ask for this. It is still about 15-20mins uphill from the train station.

Apart from the distance to Sorrento and the train station, this hostel was awesome! We met amazing people here and had an excellent time. The staff were unbelievably friendly and the place was lovely and clean. Just make sure you take them up on their free first shuttle offer - because we were walking uphill for an hour with our packs.
