From the moment i walked in i was horrified.  The front Entrance looked Ragged and like it was an abandoned building.  Then after about a minute trying to work out where someone was to greet me or ask if i needed help, i found a lady in a separate office having a cigarette and she was more interested in the...

We only stayed for one night on our way from South to North. The lady on the front desk was very welcoming and friendly. This is a very basic hostel with no extras (no wifi in the dorms). The showers are communal, although very spacious and quiet so wasn't a problem for us! Salerno isn't a tourist area, so don't... More

The hostal it's really cheap as it is really basic. The bathroom and the showers are clean, and the receptionists are gentle and helpful. The WI-FI is good but the signal is only in the sitting room where the TV is always turn on. Spend just few days if you need privacy and to sleep, the night is noisy.

It's cheap, clean and the lady who runs the place is very nice and helpful. However, the place has a really strange and uncomfortable atmosphere, most of the guests are old people who seem to live there permanently. It also has communal showers and toilets. For one night it was alright, but I wouldn't stay there longer, especially when travelling... More

I extended my stay here as i explored the amalfi coast and capri. I really dont understand why this hostel is so hated. Of course it is not super fancy or a great location, but the people and price are exceptional. I was given all sorts of great advice on my travels and it was no problem to keep my... More

This hostel worked really well for us because we were just looking for a place to sleep one night and nothing more but like other reviews, there were some suspicious things going on. I think because its so cheap it brings some people off the streets to come sleep in it I am almost positive there was an older gentleman... More

I spent 4 nights here, and it really isnt the place for a young solo traveller! It would be okay if you were in a group but the other people staying there are not very friendly and seem to live there. The showers are not in cubicles - they are together which is a bit weird. The bathrooms were dirty... More

The one star is for the staff - who are actually very sweet. The rest of the place is one of the worst I've ever stayed in. From the minute you walk in, the smell of smoke knocks you back - and this is before meeting the types of people who stay there. Nothing against the less-fortunate, we've all been... More

I stayed in a 5-7 bed mixed dorm (3 beds separated by a wardrobe in the middle of the room from the other 2 bunk beds). Every bed had its locker with the key and a closet (double). The room was clean but it depends on your roommates if it is noisy. Bathrooms and toilets were cleaned regularly, Showers are... More

My friend and I planned to stay here for a few nights while in Salerno on our recent Europe trip...we stayed for one and got out as fast as we could. The place seemed decent for the price when we checked in, but after we returned from our afternoon out, it was completely different. The people that stay in this... More
