When we first arrived we only had two nights booked but quickly we realised we had to extend it to three! The hostel is basically a beach villa overlooking the Mediterranean with such a homely vibe and even better it has 3 dogs who are always ready to play. Shaun cooked us a carbonara one night, and also took us...

Really gorgeous place with a great view and gorgeous garden, the beds were comfy and rooms clean, and all the staff were great. Definitely recommend for anyone wanting to chill out in Ischia! Thanks for a great stay.

Perfection is the best word to use. the location is simple breathtaking with the sunsets and the pool over looking the ocean. The staff are awesome and friendly, you mingle with the owner and the dogs. The meals each night was a special treat. It's easy to get to by bus. Will recommend and would stay again for sure.

Paradise Beach Hostel doesn't feel like a hostel, it's more like a big home. Sure, the dorms rooms are basic (though we were lucky enough to be given a 6 bed dorm for 3 of us) but we had our own bathroom and space to hide our luggage which is all we needed really. The beds were comfy, it was...

I think you'll be hard pressed to find a hostel with as fantastic for the price. Shaun is really cool, and the dinners are fantastic. The staff was very welcoming and kind. They took the time to explain where things are, how to get there, and made sure to include me in whatever activities were going on. I would highly...

This was one of my favourite hostels ever. I've stayed 3 times now for the last Summer's and loved it. The staff were friendly and helpful and the dogs are literally the only dogs in the world I love. I've met so many cool people during my stays, it's unreal. All travelers just wanting to have fun. It was wonderful...

Paradise Beach Hostel is a true paradise, perfect to take a break from backpacking, to just relax. They have a nice pool and poolbar were you can meet all the other guests. The rooms and bathrooms are very clean, as was their big communal kitchen. The staff went out of their way to help you and were really really friendly,...

The Paradise Beach hostel is located in one of the key places on the island. Near the best beaches, the connection with transports is very good and the views from the hostel are amazing. The sunset is magical. Beyond all these advantages I think the place is pretty deserted. 1. Cleanliness: The rooms are not clean. During the entire stay...

Every year me and a couple of friends from high school have a reunion somewhere in Europe.

I had so much expectations when I read the reviews concerning this hostel, because everything seemed to be so perfect. In fact, this place is cool, there is a great view, a pool, 3 nice dogs and many other travelers to meet. However, you must know that the place is not that clean. When I got there, there was no...

You’re clearly a seasoned traveller who loves to voice her opinion on everything and everyone. Hmmm, having met you, it’s hard to imagine, but looking at all your experienced reviews, it seems you mostly give hotels 5 stars or circles and hostels, only 2-3. Why is that? Well, it seems that you don’t like staff in some places having a...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We're here to stop you doing anything too extraordinary! Beach backpacker life in the turquoise, Mediterranean is simply not like that. Lounging... by the pool to the scent of our herb garden, BBQing... at sunset among our fruit trees and jasmine gazebo, playing... with our super-friendly dogs, Tequila Boom Boom and Lupo Luppolo, tanning... a gorgeous bronzed colour over a wine or beer... ... These are the things that we're about. When people reach us they have seen some pretty amazing sites in this fabulous old country. Well, you won't here... unless beautiful Italian beach bodies are your thing. We're on the 'the most beautiful thermal island in the world', overlooking Capri, Mt Vesuvius, and the Sorrento Peninsular. One reviewer said recently, we are your "Holiday's Holiday" Hostel... a real review from a real reviewer - I guess, that's an extraordinary find in a popular tourist area! But we're not just about sitting on your bottom doing nothing though... we have an outdoor pool with music playing into the night, a summer games bar, running water (just like in Canada), and a communal kitchen. Then there are group trips to clubs, beaches, restaurants, hot springs, archaeological sites, pubs, the mountaintops and on boats. Strenuous, eh! Sometimes you even have to pour your own coffee at breakfast on a terrace overlooking the Gulf and watched by an ancient volcano. Extraordinary? No, it's just a wretched part of the daily island grind. The Romans sunbathed here; the Spanish bathed, the Greeks and French did Greek and French things. Life really hasn't changed much in 3,000 years - and you will do what they did. But, we have free WiFi, as well. So, where the bloody hell are you, mate? We'll recommend the best foods and wines in Italy on top of the island, at one of the many cheap, local, hidden gems. We don't own a restaurant so we have no axe to grind; our recommendations are as impartial as they are delicious, from tried and true experience. And, we're not stuck in the stuffy, hot centre of some noisy city. What you'll hear is the sea lapping against the beach, the ice clinking on your glass and those symphonic Australian accents. We really are here to stop you doing anything extraordinary! Our rooms face seaward towards dream-like, distant islands in the west, with the summer sun shining on us for 16 hours a day! When you arrive you'll get fresh, sundried linen, a secure place for your possessions, a cosy bed, clean bathrooms, sassy social socializing spots, help with your bookings, travel plans, and summer day-excursions to Amalfi, Sorrento and Capri. You really won't regret sleeping with us!!! We're 40 minutes by boat from Naples, and you can reach us easily (and cheaply) from Sorrento, Amalfi, Capri, Pozzulli, Procida and Rome. Buses stop right outside our gate. Then, sitting with friends, a cocktail and a BBQ, watching the sun dip into the sea, you'll appreciate this irony... at Paradise Beach Backpackers, the sun never truly sets! Book your sunset here today! ... more   less
