For budget backpackers staying in Positano is hardly an option. (Most end up staying in Sorrento and take day trips). Hostel Brikette had an excellent balcony / common area with views of the sea that would rival any 5 star hotel. Whilst byo is not allowed - the bar has exceptionally cheap drinks including bottles of wine for next to... More

I stayed at Ostello Brikette in August, peak season. My partner and I opted for a private room which was on the expensive side for a hostel but you will not find better value in Positano and the room was definitely worth the price! The room had a really comfortable bed (which other hostels often overlook), private bathroom and a... More

Happy hour from 1800-2030. Most people in the place meet on the terrace overlooking Positano. Easy to meet new people if you're traveling alone. The only set back is how high up the hill it is. But if you don't mind the exercise, then the place is good.

First, it is conveniently located a minute walk from the Bar Internazionale bus stop in Positano (the top of the hill stop), which makes it a great base for seeing around the Amalfi coast. The view is stunning and the outdoor patio is a great place to sit with a book and a bottle of wine after a fun day... More

First off, the only hostel in Postiano and probably the cheapest accommodation you could find. Whilst it is pricey for a hostel, and the walk back from the beach was quite a work out, I think it was 100% worth it (plus you need exercise after all that pizza and pasta!). The staff were so lovely, both Pete and his... More

If you are travelling by yourself, this is probably the ideal place to stay in Positano. Most of the Positano hotels are pretty expensive. The staff are great and the rooms are clean and there's a great view from the balcony, but it isn't close to much. You have to walk a long way to the beach and to most... More

to start I would have to say the staff are incredible and really made the stay lovely! Super helpful and friendly! However we booked online and for the price we payed I can't help but feel cheated. The. 12 bed room we were in had no windows and ventilation. There was a shutter door that lead straight to the common... More

This was by far the most expensive hostel that I stayed at while traveling a month through Europe and it was probably the worst value for money. I stayed in the 12 bed dorm which had no windows nor any aircon which made it like one large oven with plastic covered beds. The room was also located right next to... More

Thanks to Nell and the guy (sorry didn't catch his name) for a lovely couple of days. Very enthusiastic staff makes this hostel have a great environment. The rooms aren't crowded and we loved the balconies. Breakfast in the morning good value and tasty. Definitely a hike down and up to the town but the bus is easy to get... More

This is by far the best hostel I have stayed in. The rooms are dark and the beds are comfortable which means you get a great nights sleep. The bathrooms are super clean. The best part is common room/balcony vibe. I met lots of wonderful, amazing people including the staff and beautiful owners Christiana and Peter. And yes there isn't... More
