Property Description

The Youth Hostel in Agerola (San Lazzaro), 650m above the Amalfi coast, was one of the first A.I.G. Hostels to open in Italy. Since 1949 it has occupied the original stables of the gatehouse to the long gone Castel Avitabile (1791-1850).

The building itself is of historic interest as it is a Protected Building. Only the inside has been renovated, creating the Hostel and the Guest Rooms (2008), both of which have full bathroom facilities, living areas and lavish kitchens. The main Piazza and bus stop are directly in front of the building and behind and to the sides is the Campsite, with four large, grassy, shaded zones, fully equipped for tents or campervans.

Agerola is a dream-like location. Close enough for day trips to the Amalfi coast, Capri and Pompei, Positano and Sorrento and yet secluded and isolated, thus offering privacy and a really healthy look at how life has gone on in southern Italy for hundreds of years.

Though a small town, it is relatively spread out, offering the most incredible views down to the sparkling, clear-blue sea lapping at the Amalfi coastline, 650m directly below. Or you might prefer the surrounding mountains, rising to almost 1400m. Walks, trails, hikes and climbs are all a must for the more adventurous, but the friendliness of the people, traditional cooking and products as well as the relaxed lifestyle will transfix you in no time and have you wishing you could stay forever.

    Probably the nicest little hostel anywhere. The kitchen might not be new but it has everything else you could need.

    It's the cheapest option in Amalfi Coast, but still doing great job. Everything is clean, the common kitchen big and well equipped, the staff lovely and informative. San Lazzaro is a good mix of locals and tourists. The bus to Amalfi takes ca 1 hour.

    Had a great stay here. The dorm rooms were way nicer than i expected. The hostel building itself is very nice. Busses goes right outside the hostel to Almafi, Bomerano etc. If you want to hike the mountains this is a perect base. The staff will help you organize hikes and give you maps and information. The town square just outside the hostel has restaurants bars and cafés. Very lively and a nice place to spend evenings after getting back from your day trips. You get alot for what you pay here!

    Great hostel away from the crowded places along the Amalfi Coast but still very near from it. There’s plenty of nice hikes around that joins surrounding villages. The bus stop is right by the hostel and brings you directly to Amalfi. The hosts are very kind and helpful and the place is very clean. I would definitely go back !

    The hostel is really comfortable, the kitchen well equipped and big. Everything is clean and the owners friendly. Supermarkets are easy to reach by foot as well as some restaurants. Only negativ side: of you want to do any hike that doesn‘t start and end at the hostel as well as for arrivel/ departure you have to take the Bus to amalfi which takes about an hour and depending on the day of the week might not come so often. Therefore you get stunning views within 5minutes from the hostel!

    Great hostel overall. The only issue I had were that the lockers aren’t big enough to store your backpack and only 3 of the 5 beds in my dorm had lockers available.

    Great hiking trails nearby with amazing views. Bit of an effort to get to amalfi (1-1.5hr bus ride or 1.5-2hr beautiful hike), and there are no nearby beaches. You can buy bus tickets from the hostel, and they’re very helpful with information about hiking trails and bus routes. I would definitely recommend to anyone wanting an inexpensive way to see the amalfi coast who doesn’t mind a bit of a journey each day. Nice kitchen space too.

    The perfect hostel if you are looking to do Amalfi, Positano and Sorrento on a smaller budget. The staff were very friendly and clearly care for their guests. My stay here felt like a little slice of paradise. However, I have to be honest. During my stay, there was an issue with bed bugs. It took us (the female dorm) three days to figure out what it was, but by then I was covered with bites. They did a fumigation treatment before my last night but by then it was too late.
