    This hostel wasn’t a 10/10 but I’m giving it a 10 as a few of the recent reviews were ridiculously low in my opinion. In terms of suitability for a solo traveller over my 4 nights I cannot speak highly enough of the environment Lorenzo created. 10/10 atmosphere for those solo, the bathrooms could be cleaner and the rooms were quite hot if I’m being critical. Every night there was something on, we went to the hot springs, Lorenzo’s mums restaurant and then to his brothers beach bar.

    In Ischia, you can't ask for a good location, since it's an island, it's hard to find a very good spot. The hostel was very cool, nice atmosphere, friendly staffs always willing to help, fair price and in the middle of the island. The only thing I didn't like was the bathroom. It wasn't so clean and one of them was clogged.

    Very Good

    This hostel is hard to review because it’s amazing in so many ways but then falls down in others. The good: absolutely fantastic atmosphere 10/10 - met fantastic people here as a solo traveller, the evening trip to hot springs, gnocci dinner and rooftop terrace were all great fun and good for meeting people. Thanks Lorenzo :) The bad: the hostel needs renovation as lots of things are old and broken, and upkeep could be improved - sometimes hard to get basic things like toilet paper or towels.

    We enjoyed our stay at the the Ring Hostel mostly! A lot of good and bad aspects; We got to use lorenzo’s brothers paddle boards for free, we did the dinner, wine and hot springs for €10 and experiences lorenzos CRAZY driving and met great people. The not so good things are, lorenzo is hard to find and get information from and a lot of things in the hostel are broken. Other than this we had a great time!

    Ischia is a really neat place! A nice spot to take a few chill days out. Lorenzo is great (although can't always be found). I was disappointed my room wasn't cleaned when I checked in, but the room was good value for money. I would have liked more social activities, unfortunately I missed out on the Hot Springs tour which was the day before. Just a warning, when arriving make sure you catch the ferry to Forio - as Ischia is a 30min bus ride away and local buses are VERY crowded and unreliable.

    If you’re simply looking for a bed to sleep in and don’t care too much what the bathrooms look like, this is the place. But honestly, I have seen way more value for the same amount of money in other places before.

    The hostel has seen better days, dorms are a funny layout. The number of beds dont add up to what you actually get. Stayed in big dorm with three rooms with entrance in first and bathroom in last so people walking through all three all day and night. Fridge and kitchen is tiny and the owner gets really unhappy when you ask to use their big fridge in reception. They state things like free ping pong table and table football but weren't anywhere. The rooftop was good and had good vibe though

    Dirty. Place. Too many beds placed in small room with lot of wardrobes. No space. Booked 4bef dorm placed in the 6 bed dorm. Staff don't have much knowledge on the area to advise what to do or what to see. Got charged for 4 bed but slept in 6 bed. 2 bathrooms on 20 people. So the island doesn't have much of cheap accommodation so you got no choice. It is cheap but don't expect nothing to even basic. Only the breakfast was OK but even in the restuarant I saw small rats so that tells me how clean
