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

Easy to find the hostel. It's at the roadside of the main road. Wifi provided at the common area. Breakfast provided too. Those with trolley luggage will be troublesome as you need to climb up staircase. You are not allowed to return to the hostel for too late, unless you in formed earlier.. Nothing much that I can comment here,... More

I stayed in Brikette for a week last October and enjoyed it very much. The staff was very pleasant and helpful and the hostel itself is beautiful and comfortable. I found the location to be great - easy to find when you get into town, a great view of the coast, and right at the start of the fantastic hiking... More

We loved our stay at Brikette hostel! The staff were so helpful. Like out of their way helpful! Cooking a delicious breakfast for us, and telling us all the places to eat and drink in the area, and how to do the path of the gods (which was spectacular). We had a lovely clean room with our own balcony which... More

The hostel staff were very friendly, always greeting you and asking how your day went. The breakfast and drinks were very good value for money. The rooms and facilities were clean. Very happy with staying here. The only downside is that Wifi is only accessible from the lobby or balcony if your room has one. This was my first experience... More

Been travelling for a month, this hostel was the worst place we have stayed. Place is an absolute crap hole. Plastic covers on beds, dark hole of a dorm with no venilation- I thought I had woken up in a morge. Staff rude, unhelpful. Bathrooms dirty, nowhere to get changed. Only good aspect of this place is the view but... More

Most aspects of this hostel are great! The staff are friendly, helpful and welcoming, and they have a great social area outside. We were grateful that they allowed us to leave our backpacks with them for the day, after we checked out. Also, there is a constant supply of chilled water and a good bar menu. For us, the issues...

This Hostel is located right at the hop of the hill of Positano. There are a LOT of stairs to the beach but on the way up there is a bus that takes you to a stop less than 100m from the hostel. I stayed in an 8 bed dorm room upstairs from the reception and it was great. I... More
