Liked: It is pretty amazing how nice this place is. They even give you shampoo and soap. It's great value for what you're getting. Sorrento is a great place for going to the Amalfi Coast, which is just too far from Napoli.

Disliked: There are better places if you're on a budget. Breakfast isn't included (it's 10 euros) and a lot of the fancy stuff is sort of unnecessary, especially if you're planning on being away from the hostel all day. It was nice for one night, but if you're just planning on going to Capri/Ischia/Pompeii/Herculaneum/Vesuvius, you can stay in Napoli for considerably less.

Liked: Great price and amazing location. Sorrento is a beautiful Small town so you won't be spending much time in the hostel anyway. Doesn't have a hostel feel at all-more like a hotel. Didn't have any other young travelers which was fine by me. Little market next door too!

Disliked: Then dorm room doesn't have any windows and it can be a bit tricky to find upon arrival. I think they should put up a little sign that directs guest down the stairs right after the hospital which is on the main road.

Liked: Good wifi in the lobby, and helpful staff.

Disliked: Bit far away from the main town and train station, and the breakfast is not worth the money really. Did not like my room at all, think it used to be a store room or something that was converted as it was not near any other rooms and was next to the kitchen.

Liked: One of the best value for money hostels we have come accross and very competitive for accommodation prices in Sorrento. Facilities more hotel than hostel style. Staff very friendly and helpful.

Disliked: Location not quite at the centre of things and with all the space one wonders why they didn't think of putting in self-catering facilities. Breakfast somewhat expensive but then there are lots of cafes close by where you can have breakfast.

Liked: I booked a shared room. It was the best shared room that I've ever seen because its a hotel room with bunked beds. Excellent staff who went out of their way to recommend things to do around town. If you're a budget traveller, this was really cheap for what they offer!!

Liked: Very clean. Like people have said, more like a hotel then a hostel. Location was great, quite close to everything in town (although it was at the opposite side of town to the train station, but Sorrento is small so this isnt really an issue). We were also upgraded to a private room for no extra charge!

Liked: Breakfast is yummy but not free.

Disliked: Had booked the 8 beds shared female dorm wich seem to be very recommend on everyones comments. Dorm was available at the moment of the booking and still at the moment of the check-in. Have been welcome on Sunday afternoon by a pretentious men wich I thought didn't fit with the type of place. Been told that he didn't have my reservation but will look for it. Assigned me a room wich was at the back of the kitchen in a dirty 1 single bunk. Many stains on wall, dirty toillet that haven't been wash in my 4 days there either. The room was barely big enough for me an my suitcase. I am not a oversize person either. Fitness room and pool are not free of charge for guests. Overall go somewhere else if you are on a budget. Naples-Sorrento can be done on a day trip easily. Maybe if you are more lucky let me know if the famous dorm really exist...

Disliked: just that you couldn't access wifi in rooms but the lobby is great with plenty of couches to use the Internet from.
