About Paradise Beach Backpackers Hostel
Beach backpacker life in the turquoise, Mediterranean is simply not like that.
Lounging… by the pool to the scent of our herb garden, BBQing… at sunset among our fruit trees and jasmine gazebo, playing… with our super-friendly dogs, Tequila Boom Boom and Lupo Luppolo, tanning… a gorgeous bronzed colour over a wine or beer…
… These are the things that we’re about.
When people reach us they 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 '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…
we have an outdoor pool with music playing into the night, a summer games bar, running water (just like in Canada), and a communal kitchen. Then there are group trips to clubs, beaches, restaurants, hot springs, archaeological sites, pubs, the mountaintops and on boats. Strenuous, eh! Sometimes you even have to pour your own coffee at breakfast on a terrace overlooking the Gulf and watched by an ancient volcano. Extraordinary? No, it’s just a wretched part of the daily island grind.
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 free WiFi, as well.
So, where the bloody hell are you, mate?
We’ll recommend 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, we’re not 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 those symphonic Australian accents. We really are here to stop you doing anything extraordinary!
Our rooms face seaward towards dream-like, distant islands in the west, with the summer sun shining on us for 16 hours a day! When you arrive 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!!!
We're 40 minutes by boat from Naples, and you can reach us easily (and cheaply) from Sorrento, Amalfi, Capri, Pozzulli, Procida and Rome. Buses stop right outside our gate.
Then, sitting with friends, a cocktail and a BBQ, watching the sun dip into the sea, you'll appreciate this irony... at Paradise Beach Backpackers, the sun never truly sets!
Book your sunset here today!
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.
TERMS AND CONDITIONS
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!
We're close to absolutely everything on the island... which really isn't that huge.
Some local attractions...
* Beaches... loads and free
* Spas... free volcanically-heated hot springs
* Boats & boat-trips
* A sweet village
* Cafes, restaurants & bars with fabulous island flavours... we know the best, with the best service, prices & food
* Roman & Greek museums & ruins
* Grottos... free
* Mountains with amazing panoramas
* Churches... so many churches
And lots, lots, lots, more
