    Lorenzo’s hostel is amazing! We stayed for 2 nights and met some great people. Lorenzo gave us great recommendations and even brought us to his mother’s restaurant in his van for the best food probably on the island. The location is really close to Forio port and town which was perfect and there is so much to do nearby. Great vibes :)

    Had the best stay here - Ischia is such a gorgeous island and this is the perfect place to enjoy it from! Plus there's a free trip to Lorenzo's mama's restaurant every evening, which had some of the best food I had my whole time in Italy. Every night I was there everyone from the hostel came so even though it was off-season and the hostel was still fairly empty you got to know everyone and have a good time out. Loved it here, would 100% stay again next time I come to Ischia.

    My stay at Ring Hostel was brief, too brief I know think as it was a wonderful place to stay on Ischia, and so affordable!! I would recommend this hostel to anyone new to Ischia and looking for a relaxed hostel with a calm atmosphere and friendly people. Situated so close to the bus stop and just outside of Forio, Ring Hostel is a must stay place!

    Overall enjoyed my experience and would be back again! This hostel definitely has more of a laid back vibe- we often had to wait for the host for things like check-in/check-out and staff was not available 24 hours like at some hostels but that was not a big deal for us. I was able to meet lots of young travellers that I hung out with.

    I absolutely loved this place! there are definitely issues that need fixing but the pros outweigh the cons! I met so many friends here, went on many additional trips (boat tours, hot spring tours etc which were relatively cheap too), but the bed/room layout is strange. One room is noisy as it’s close to the staircase, the second room has no windows and therefore no ventilation and the third is where the bathroom is located so people walking in and out constantly. But the staff are amazing!

    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.

    Very close to Forio port and center, Lorenzo was always available through text but no staff were regularly at the hostel.
