Ave Gratia Plena. This very friendly hostel/B & B is in the old part of Salerno, five minutes from the Duomo. The staff are very welcoming, and speak excellent English. Most of the rooms have access to a balcony from which there are excellent views, at least for us on the fifth floor. The sea plus a busy port is... More

I spent 3 nights in august, and was always at the sea side. Sent back to sleep, nothing special because I was never there but it was clean but the Wi-Fi does not function. I JUST WENT BACK TO SLEEP NOTHING SPECIAL, OLD BUILDING NEAR THE SALERNO DUOMO.

We don't stay in hostels and we were easily 30 years older than any other guest we saw. However, we needed one night in Salerno and Ave Gratia kept showing up on reviews, most were very positive. We decided to give it a try. It was very quiet, very clean and they have several private rooms with shower, in addition... More

We stayed for 2 nights in the hostel. We paid an extra to have a Comfort room, which meant that the bathroom should have been recently renovated. We got room 31 with a bathroom that is outdated. We complained with the reception but the answer was that it was renovated, that the pictures on the webpage were other style... We... More

Very nice hostel in a former monastery. Rooms are simply equipped but most importantly clean. It is located in the city centre. Great for a night out but you shouldn't go there by car. Staff is friendly and helpful. The Breakfast buffet is a bit small. Prices are very moderate.

I stayed here for a few nights while I explored my favorite region in Italy. I had my own room and it was very clean and simple. The staff was what really made it enjoyable for me. I don't remember her name, but she had short brown hair and glasses (and we rode the train in together) and she was... More

Me and my friend travelled from Rome to Salerno with train but we arrived earlier than the check in time so we decided to see a bit of Salerno first. We ended up in The Minerva Gardens around 13:30 so we decided to go to the hostel from there. It's actually only a three minute walk from the garden so... More

A blissful 1600-700 convent thoroughly refurbished as a simple hotel for families and travelers, with a great view from the rooms looking southwest towards the Duomo and a very enjoyable courtyard where some guests also spend some leisure time in the evenings mingling. Very good sleep quality - as soon as people in the courtyard call it a day, or... More

Beautiful Hostel, nice clean rooms, good breakfast, elevator, nice staff, roof terrace and good bath :) have bin there twice, and would stay there again. The only thing I could put is that some people would say the beds are too hard, but I like that so all in all perfect. Though this a city Hostel meaning parking and drive... More
