Property Description

SPECIAL EVENT CONDITIONS:
Reservations for the period July 1st to Aug 31st are of the form 'prepaid and non-refundable'. That means that they have different payment terms, are subject to a different cancellation policy, and may not be modified. You will be charged in full for the reservation shortly after you book.

END OF SPECIAL EVENT CONDITIONS


Credit Holds/Preauthorization
Your credit card will be pre-authorized 17 days before arrival, for an amount equal to your first night’s stay. We will make a pre-authorization for all bookings, including those for the period July 1st to August 31st. If we cannot make the required pre-authorization, we will cancel your reservation.

Credit card transactions
Our bank charges non-EU credit cards in the local currency, at an exchange rate set by the bank. This means that the amount you are charged will be about 3% greater than the base rate.

We maintain a 72 hours cancellation policy and 168 hours modification policy.
Please do not bring alcohol you have purchased elsewhere into the hostel, as this contravenes our licensing regulations.
Check-in hours are between 3 and 10 PM, daily.
Both before check-in and after checkout, we can store your bags (from 11 AM for check-in and 4 PM for checkout), but we cannot offer further hostel facilities.

You may also find the following information useful:

The Hostel is located less than 100 metres from the bus stop.
We have a large terrace, which provides a world class view.
The bar is popular with guests, very keenly priced for Positano, and we regularly organise trips to Praiano's Africana.
For those who love to walk, the hills around Positano provide for great hiking and breathtaking views - ask about our trips.
The Hostel building has high-tech electronic door locks, lockers, and security cameras.
If you do intend to drive, street parking is a possibility. If you park in an illegal parking space, or in an area that endangers drivers (i.e. on a corner), you risk receiving a parking fine. If you visit during the peak season, it can be challenging to get a parking space.
There is a minimum of 742 steps to and from the main beach. That means that most people will find the walk back to be hard work. If you do not want to walk, there are options. For most, the best option is to catch the bus, which runs every 15 minutes in the central part of the season, and every 30mins during the low part. A round trip is priced at 1,50 euro if you pay before boarding, or 1,80 euros if you pay on the bus. View House Rules

Overview

You'll find Hostel Brikette teetering on a hillside in Positano on the Amalfi Coast. Order a glass of prosecco from our bar, have a seat on our outdoor terrace and prepare to be blown away by the ocean views. For an evening out, we'll get you a discount on a shuttle and VIP entry to Praiano's Africana nightclub – it's set in a cave and is world famous. Want to take a bit of Italy back home? We do cooking classes to improve your culinary skills and wine tastings so you get to look like an expert when you go back home.

Location

Walking to the beach at Positano Spiaggia takes around 18 minutes (down 742 steps) or you can get the bus (a 20-minute ride). The bus to the ruins of Pompei takes around two hours or you can visit the Cathedral of St Andrew in under an hour. Reach the romantic island of Capri by boat from Positano Port in 25 minutes. Flying in? From Naples International Airport take the Circumvesuviana train to Sorrento (about an hour) then the SITA bus to Positano (40 minutes). Get off at the Bar Internazionale stop – we're steps from there.

Rooms and Dorms

Our rooms include mixed dorms and female-only dorms with free linen (there's also a budget dorm which is cheaper – it's right next to the bar so ideal if you're here for the aperol!). Splashing out? We have private rooms and premium dorms with en-suite bathrooms and a terrace. The private rooms come with free towels for the bath and beach. Security lockers are on hand for everyone.

Extras and activities

Use our free Wi-Fi to upload snaps – a photo of a mouthwatering traditional meal or a strong espresso from our café should rack up the likes! Overdone it on the beach? Just step inside to our fully air-conditioned building. If you want to explore the coastal paths on two wheels, we have handy cycle parking so you can keep your bike close by.

    I had an incredible time staying here in Positano ! Beautiful location, near the beach and super easy to walk/bus to any of your adventures, plus great patios off the room. Most importantly, staff member LUKE was an absolute gem for the entire trip. King of helpfulness in every department, fun loving and happy to make you some (cheap) beverages at the bar while you hang out or make your plans. Thank you for being so wicked lovely :)

    Hostel Brikette was an amazing place to stay in an amazing city. The hostel is a 2 minute walk away from the bus stop which makes getting around positano so much easier. The rooms were really clean and have an amazing view of the water. Extremely friendly staff and great people. Will definitely be back here in the future and couldn’t recommend it more.

    Very Good

    19 Oct 2019
    While the location is beautiful, the manager of the hostel made the stay pretty stressful for me. He seemed to pick favorites at random - giving away free drinks to some and not to others. He would make up arbitrary rules like when he decided to close the common spaces, seemingly just when he felt like going to bed. Instead of helping schedule activities, he made us do all of that work and actually made our coordination process more confusing. And he made me pay for an extra night!

    Good

    18 Oct 2019
    We stayed at the end of October and it was dead. Way too expensive for what it was. We had a 2 person room and the bunk beds were rickety and uncomfortable. The staff were super friendly and the breakfast and drinks were good. Bathrooms were very clean but they cleaned them at 730 in the morning directly beside our room which was kind of frustrating.
