Liked: The location was about a 15 minute walk from the train station, but easy to find with a map. It is directly up the street from the beach which was nice. It was also just around the corner from the Sita bus stop which was excellent because then it is only an hour bus ride to Amalfi and an hour and a half to Positano. Overall a good experience and I would definitely stay here again, breakfast was really good as well. I would recommend staying here.

Disliked: There was not really anything that I disliked about this hostel.

Liked: The hostel is located in a strategic position, at the heart of Salerno. From the hostel you can go by walk in few minutes to each historical building. The staff is very helpful.

Disliked: There is no manual heating, so the room is rather cold at times.
