    Nice hostel in Forio. Lovely rooftop. Basic room & nice travelers. When I tried charging my cell phone - felt like it was overheating -:( Used my own portable fan for sleeping o/n as it was very hot.

    An amazing hostel with an amazing owner who was so kind to many other people left without accommodation on the island. Really great hostel, nice atmosphere and feels very safe. Only problem is no air conditioning, which is tough in the middle of August. Other than that can't fault the place. We had a great time!

    I stayed at the hostel for two nights in a private double room with my bf. Staff (Lorenzo and his family) were very nice to us and gave us some insights about the best beach and thermal centres in Ischia. The room and toilet were very clean and nothing was missing. Maybe the location is not the best, but it still is quite close to public transport, or you can reach the port by 10/15 minutes walking.

    Great staff, great value, good location, acceptable facilities. No air conditioning and several rooms don't have fans, which can be quite unpleasant. Otherwise a welcoming, fun experience.

    I ended up staying 6 nights in the end partly due to accom mess up in the next place but also because the island is wonderful. Really peaceful slow pace. Lorenzo's mother was around to help. Cleanliness was pretty poor, I'll chalk it to off-season , there was only myself the first night so maybe they didn't expect people I don't know. Met some really nice people there. Your not far from Forio beach for morning and evening swims . The rooftop had beautiful views and the kitchen is ok to cook.

    Lorenzo who runs the Ring hostel is a really lovely person. He’s friendly and very open to chat and clearly appreciates his guests. The hostel is a little worn down, and the bathrooms are not very comfortable to use. But the atmosphere is really nice and there is a rooftop with a great view.
