Marinna Roseberry thinks…

"This was a great place to stay, even in winter, with a friendly, helpful owner, Sean, and his staff. The view from my room was amazing and we had a traditional Ischia-style bbq one night with wine…"

Shared Rooms Help! A shared room (typically a dorm) is a bedroom which you share with other people from the property. The number of beds in a room is shown in the room name, e.g. ‘5 Bed Dorm’, and you can book as many as you need. Some properties have male only dorms and female only dorms.

6 Bed Dorm - Female only (Private bathroom)


6 Bed Dorm - Mixed (Private bathroom)


4 Bed Dorm - Mixed (Private bathroom)

About Paradise Beach Hostel

We’re here to STOP you doing anything too extraordinary!

Beach backpacker life is just not like that.

LOUNGING… by the pool to the scent of a herb garden;
BBQing… at sunset among fruit trees and jasmine gazebo;
PLAYING… with super-friendly puppies, Tequila and Lupo, or with one of our other cool guests;
TANNING… a gorgeous bronzed colour over a wine or beer…

… These are the things that we’re about.

When you reach us you'll have seen some pretty AMAZING SITES in this fabulous old country.

Well, you won’t here…

... unless beautiful Italian BEACH BODIES are your thing. We're on the MAIN STREET of 'the MOST BEAUTIFUL thermal island in the world', overlooking Capri, Mt Vesuvius, and the Sorrento Peninsular. One reviewer said recently, we are your “Holiday’s Holiday” Hostel… a real review from a real reviewer – I guess, that’s an extraordinary find in a popular tourist area!


But we’re not just about sitting on your arse doing nothing though…

… you'll enjoy an outdoor POOL with MUSIC playing into the night, a summer games BAR, running tap water (!), a communal KITCHEN, and the summer SUN shining on you for 16 hours a day! Then there are group trips to clubs, BEACHES, restaurants, HOT SPRINGS, archaeological sites, PUBS, and mountain tops. We even organise BOAT cruises. Strenuous, eh! Sometimes you even have to pour your own COFFEE at breakfast on a terrace overlooking the turquoise Mediterranean and watched by an ancient VOLCANO. Extraordinary? No, it’s just a wretched part of the daily island grind.

You'll get fresh, sundried linen, a secure place for your possessions, a cosy bed, clean bathrooms, sassy social socializing spots, help with your bookings, travel plans, and summer day-excursions to Amalfi, Sorrento and Capri. You really won’t regret sleeping with us!


The Romans sunbathed here; the Spanish bathed, the Greeks and French did Greek and French things. Life really hasn’t changed much in 3,000 years – and you will do what they did. But, we have FAST, free WI-FI, as well.

We’ll recommend you the best FOODS and WINES in Italy on top of the island, at one of the many cheap, local, hidden gems. We don’t own a restaurant so we have no axe to grind; our recommendations are as impartial as they are delicious, from tried and true experience. And, while you’re close to all the best the island has to offer, you won't be stuck in the stuffy, hot centre of some noisy city. What you’ll hear is the sea lapping against the beach, the ice clinking on your glass and the wonderfully symphonic Australian accents of your fellow hostellers by the pool. We really are here to stop you doing anything extraordinary! So then, where the bloody hell are you, mate?

We're 40 minutes by boat from the mainland and buses stop right outside our gate. There’s supermarkets, restaurants and bars within 5 minutes or so from us.

Then, sitting with friends, a cocktail and a BBQ, watching the sun dip into the sea, you'll appreciate this irony... at Paradise Beach Hostel, the sun never truly sets!

Book your sunset here today!

Accommodation Information

All our rooms have ensuite bathrooms, free linen and we clean them each day. Our showers are hot, our drinks cold and our staff are cool.

Sadly, only girls can pick female-only dorms (6 bed, 4 bed and 3 bed, depending on what's available) but everyone can choose a mixed dorm of 6 or 4 beds (also depending on availability). You can choose a twin room, a double or a single too.


We're a pretty flexible bunch here, some prettier and some more flexible, but the prices quoted and booked by you are DISCOUNTED, and are only valid if you pay cash when checking-in or when booking your extended stay... which we think you'll do! If you choose to use other forms of payment the prices are not discounted and you must pay our Standard Rate, which is an extra 3 € per person per night.

Cancelling: We’ll make sure you have a bed when you arrive and if you don’t want it, let us know so we can resell it. Cancelling without giving us 7 days notice in advance will probably mean you’ll get charged for your whole booking, but we will try to resell your bed to prevent this.

Check-in: Check-in can be done at anytime but let us know if you will be arriving after 8 pm or before 8 am. We MAY NOT be able to let you into your room until 2 pm (because people will be sleeping in it), but you can leave your bags and do all the check-in formalities, have a drink, a shower, and watch a video, go to the beach, or chat-up one of the locals. Actually, you don't really need a room!!

Refunds: All payments to the hostel are non-refundable.

Check-out: Check-out of your room by noon on the day you are leaving, and bring us your pillowcase so we know which bed needs making. You can leave your bags with us for the day, and you can store them with us if you are returning to stay at a later date.

Oh, and to avoid confusion... a dormitory has more than one bed in it, and you share the room with others who you may not know. But, MOST OF YOU knew that, eh!
