Fantastic, clean accommodation with 24hr reception. This is classified as a hostel but our space was very roomy and had more space then the average hotel. The building itself is a converted convent and you can stroll around and discover lots of interesting spaces and outdoor balconies. If you are after great basic accommodation in a great spot this is... More

The hostel is in a former convent, and a lot of that is still visible inside and out. When entering you are greeted by wonderfully relaxing jazzy music. This is nice, but the music never stops and the speaker is set up in the old courtyard wich means it is LOUD and omnipresent! Asking to turn the music off did... More

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 We got room 31 with a bathroom that is outdated.

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.
