Old convent in the centre of the town rebuilt as a youth hostel. Nice staff. Good location. Good breakfast. Best Quality-price-location in town. Good WI-fi. Beds are a bit too soft. They have dorms and private rooms with bathroom. Nice views from room window and pleasant terrace. Beautiful courtyard, old cloister.

This hostel provided everything we wanted and more: We were in Salerno for just one night -- a sort of "layover" between our trip down the Amalfi Coast and another push southward. I particularly appreciated that they had WiFi in the room and the receptionist gave us a recommendation for a nearby place for dinner that turned out to be... More

Good staff, clean, comfortable, very nice. Parking, if you have a car, is a 15 minute walk from the Hostel. And watch the inner city limits on automobiles or you will get ticketed. Decent location, a bit noisy at night, not from the Hostel itself, but the location within the city.

First, the courtyard. The gorgeous square in the centre of the hostel makes this place exceptional. Centrepiece is a beautiful fountain with goldfish. The courtyard also has a funky glowing plastic bar where they serve drinks in the evening (not to mention the free home-made sangria we received upon arrival). Relaxing and enchanting. A recent reviewer complained of noise. We... More

Hard to rate this, as there were some big plusses and some big minuses. I stayed in a private room with ensuite. The pluses first. Friendly, multilingual staff. I arrived a bit early, and after staff checked that my room had been cleaned I was allowed to check in early. Good cornetti, cheese, salami at breakfast. The room was spartan... More

Dear Rob, thank you for writing in a very detailed way about our hostel. just some clarification: we have also room facing inside. Next time you can ask for that. About the drunken guests: you're right and we're sorry for that but unfortunately we can not predict the behavior of 100 guests... About your breakfast: we are not used to... More

Staff spoke good English and were extremely helpful at all times - even printing off our boarding passes home for us, just as a favour! Breakfast was lovely. Drinks at the bar were fairly cheap. Good atmosphere. Little bit out of the way, but in a good way more than anything! Only complaints would be that WiFi only reaches the... More

Hi Annabel, thanks for appreciating our hostel. We are glad that you enjoyed our breakfast and the bar service. About wi-fi we have some rooms reached by the signal: next time ask for that. Just one comment: you said "little bit out the way": the hostel is located in the heart of the historical center of the city...so absolutely central.... More

Interesting place, in fact it is a youth hostel however with hotel like facilities. Good breakfast. Wi-Fi. And right in the center of the old town. We were with a car and it is highly advisable to follow the instruction of the hostel to get there as it is in the Zone Traffico Limitado. If you have a GPS (navigation... More

When you arrive go into the tourist information centre at the railway station. There they speak English and will sell you the tickets for the local buses, to the Amalfi Coast and even to the airport so that you don't have to queue in Rome. To find the hostel come out of the station and take the first right along... More
