The staff here are very friendly and helpful. The drinks and breakfast are cheap and delicious. Great verandah with heaps of backpackers. Loud music at night and cheap cocktails. Close to main beach, they even booked out blue grotto tour for us :) great service, great value for money

We stayed three nights here and it has been the best hostel since being in Europe. The staff are very helpful and caring. There are cheap drinks and many breakfast options available including savoury which is rare in Italy and France. The vibe was great, the cleaner was thorough and the view is also amazing! Will go straight back the...

My stay at Ostello Brikette was the highlight of my 3-week trip to Europe. It`s located right down the road from a SITA bus stop and a Positano Interno bus stop, which makes it very easy to travel around the Amalfi Coast and Positano. The rooms are spacious and clean and the beds are quite comfortable. There is no free...

I had an amazing stay at Hostel Brikette, in fact, I booked an extra night at the end of my stay. After reading some of the harsh reviews I was a bit apprehensive, but quickly realized that all bad reviews seem to be quite old. My girlfriend and I originally had a larger room with more beds, shared bath and...

I have been to several hotels/hostels/B&Bs in the last month of my Eurotrip and Hostel Brikette was by far my favorite.  As soon as my friend and I arrived, we were greeted by a very helpful man at reception who gave us the inside scoop on all of the tourist stuff on the coast.  The wifi was only available in...

So glad that you enjoyed your stay. We are lucky to have such great guests stay with us, and be able to build the sort of atmosphere that you experienced - having the wifi in a common area does help bring people together, as you mention. All the best for your future travels.

Was the absolute perfect spot to stay in! The view is spectacular!...Felt more like a resort than a hostel! The hosts created a great atmosphere, extremely helpful, with home cooked meals. The place is spotless clean. With absolutely no flaws. I would reccommend this place to anyone. Whether your a single backpacker or a couple looking for a nice getaway!...

This hostel is a very cheap but awesome way to experience Positano. The owners of Hostel Brikette are some of the nicest people I have met on our trip so far and did everything they could to accommodate our needs.

The owners of Hostel Brikette have created the perfect atmosphere for tourists in Positano. They were super friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable about the area, so be sure to ask what to do around Positano, or ask for tips on the bus/train/ferry schedules for the surrounding area. And the bar was fantastic! Peter is a fantastic bartender, and you probably can't...
