My girlfriend and I are 26 and took a 9-day Italy trip (2 in Positano). This B and B was phenomenal. Here's why (labeled by what's important to me):
1. Safety- Safe place to begin with, but locked gate and double locked room doors. We never felt unsafe.
2. Location- Although you have to descend/ascend 300 stairs to get to/from the center of town, the top of the stairs is about 15 ft. down the street of the B and B. But if you have bad hips/bad knees you may want to get a B and B in the center of town (or not go to Positano at all- just see Cinque Terra). Views were phenomenal for the price (we paid ~80E/night, I'd heard of 100+ for alley views), from our balcony we could see the whole town (almost the water but not quite). It was also sort of perched in between the two beaches.
3. Service/friendliness- Staff were great. It was quiet, they didn't speak much English, but they were super nice (wouldn't accept any tip). Very helpful when asking about town. We had breakfast included, and each morning all we had to do was call, and ten minutes later they would bring breakfast (and an actual good one, by European standards) to our balcony to eat and watch the morning unfold on the town. So awesome.
4. As far as cleanliness, toilet, shower, etc. everything was great. We even had an extra bed just for kicks apparently.
