This hostel is a great choice for anyone looking for a cheaper accommodation on the Amalfi Coast. The hostel is just a short walk from the first bus stop in Positano (Chisea Nuova/Bar Internazionale) and has an amazing view of the town and water as it is high on the hill. The hostel has a small little bar and a wonderful patio with chairs and tables that lets you enjoy the beautiful view. The room I had also had its own private balcony with more tables and chairs- which was a nice place to relax. The room I stayed in was very nice and had its own private bathroom which was good and the shower stalls in the shared bathroom seemed small and I don’t think they had a place in which to change (but still the bathroom was clean and nice otherwise). You could also rent a locker here for 5 euros- which was returned to you after you gave back the key. The hostel also had breakfast options for about five euros including eggs, toast, yogurt, etc. However, there is a small grocery store right next to the bus stop where you can buy much cheaper options for breakfast, lunch and dinner- so that was very helpful.
My one major critique of this hostel is that it could be EXTREMELY loud. There were a lot of young people staying at the hostel who were keen on drinking/partying thus they would congregate on the patio and talk loudly while getting drinks from the bar and playing music until late at night. One of the hostel workers (Tom?) also played the music and would be chatting with the guests. This was quite frustrating at times because a few nights it was very hard to sleep. It was definitely the loudest hostel I went to on my trip throughout Italy.
