Hostel Brikette has an amazing location and social atmosphere. The main draw is the terrace/balcony offering stunning views, with fantastic home-cooking and drinks served on site making for some really fun evenings during our stay! Beds and showers were clean and comfortable. And all the staff were keen to make our stay fun and activity-filled! Ali and Alannah took a...

. . . actually my favorite place in southwest Europe so far. I visited 6 countries over 30 days and this was my favorite city and lodging during the entire trip. I stayed in several over-priced hotels that didn't even come close for me. The amazing views, fantastic food, and great service makes for a wonderful base to explore the...

The view is amazing, and it is really the only option in Positano for budget travelling. The hot water is off for most of the day, there is no access to the kitchen or a fridge, the wifi is only in the common area, the showered you can barely turn around in and the owners often said "ask us and...

This place was wicked! We would definitely stay here again. Andy made us feel at home and went out of his way to accommodate us. There are not many people around this time of year but that made the experience better! Instead of 20 000 tourists you have 2000 local Italians which was really nice. The weather was also pretty...

This hostel is a great choice for anyone looking for a cheaper accommodation on the Amalfi Coast. The hostel is just a short walk from the first bus stop in Positano (Chisea Nuova/Bar Internazionale) and has an amazing view of the town and water as it is high on the hill. The hostel has a small little bar and a...

I stayed here for two nights and it was the best hostel experience I have had in my month of travelling around Europe. The atmosphere is amazing, everybody is incredibly friendly and the staff pretty much join in (special mention to Tom who was a very good laugh!). The view from the balcony is unbeatable considering the very reasonable price...

I absolutely loved this hostel. The view is incredible. There's a large patio/balcony overlooking the town. It was breathtaking, and the fact that I got that view for a very great price was unbeatable. The staff is awesome. Best hostel staff I have ever encountered. Amazing hospitality. Security system is great (No keys...fingerprint scanners! Fancy) The atmosphere at the hostel...
