I've led a group of students to the Amalfi Coast every year since 2008. We've always stayed at A'Scalinatella, because there is no reason for us to stay anywhere else. If you are looking for a fancy, over-the-top, expensive hotel, this place isn't for you - and there are plenty of those hotels all along the coast anyway. But if you need a comfortable, clean, very friendly, and economical place to stay, look no further. I actually hesitate to tell people about this place because I think it's a well-kept secret, and I want to be able to book here again and again. But they really do deserve your consideration when planning a trip to the coast. Atrani is a fantastic town, and A'Scalinatella is a wonderful hotel/hostel!

This hostel in Atrani was gorgeous.

Firstly, Atrani itself is a great little town. It is a 5 minute walk to Amalfi but totally out of the tourist hustle and bustle. A few great restaurants in the town itself and gorgeous small town vibe.

The hostel is run by two brothers who are helpful and kindhearted hosts. They are happy to go out of their way to help you however they can (with travel plans, tips on the local area, loaned us a power adapter etc etc). They also upgraded us to a private room as it was available, although we had booked a dorm room. Free breakfast everyday prepared by the brothers.

As others have said, the rooms/facilities are a little dated and the toilet/shower is combined and so toilet gets wet. However this was totally fine and would not deter us from staying again.

Thanks Filipe for a wonderful stay

I really loved staying at this place. I did book a private room, and it sounds like some people have had bad experience in dorms. The owners are as nice as can be and seem like the kind of guys that will give you the shirts off their back. Very helpful for recommending what to do, which bus to take, etc.

As for the location it's in the VERY small town of Atrani. If you are looking for a bumping night life, you want to look elsewhere. There are about 5-6 restaurants in the city square, which the hostel is also in. It's a great location if you just want to get off the grid at night.

Very close walk to Amalfi, 8 minutes or so. From there you can get basically anywhere you want on the coast. Lots of restaurants, bars, and little shops there. There is also a trail that leads directly to Ravello, which if it were half the price to stay there I would 100% stay there.

For the bathrooms, I live in Asia so having a "wet room" without a proper shower was not an issue for me. Don't expect anything overly nice, as it's all pretty dated. There is a kitchen with a mini fridge, but it's very dark in the "common areas" as the light seems to be on some kind of timer. There is free wifi that works in the rooms which is a huge bonus.

Overall, great experience. Don't come here expecting the Ritz and you'll be ok.

Room Tip: Get a private room if you can, it's the same price if you have 2 people.

Found this hostel on hostelworld and booked it purely based on other's reviews. I was not disappointed! We stayed in a twin private room with private bathroom and although the bathroom was sub-par (as in the toilet and the shower were in a tiny room together), i LOVED the view out of our window of the village and mountains and it was a 3 minute walk to the best beach along the Amalfi Coast. The breakfast each day was good for a hostel and the host's were 2 lovely gentlemen. Would absolutely stay here again!!

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing away from the beach... the view is spectacular!!

First, the positive: good location, decent pricing for the area, and plenty of solo travelers and backpackers to meet. A' Scalinatella is in Atrani, a town right next to Amalfi. Since Amalfi is a central city in the Amalfi Coast, busses and ferries are easy to access, all walkable. The beach in Atrani is slightly more private and cheaper than other beaches in the Amalfi Coast (Positano, Capri, Amalfi, etc), and the restaurants are all decent, nothing exceptional but nothing terrible either. Based on what I gathered from other people and my own personal experience, beds cost between €40 and €45. Given how expensive the Amalfi Coast is (hotels can go up to +€1000/day and it's not uncommon for them to be around €200/day), this is a really cheap price. Finally, because there are so few hostels on the coast, many young travelers who are backpacking will end up here. So a solo traveler should have no problem meeting people.

The negative: shower and toilet on each other, rooms aren't actually separated from other rooms, no lockers, same breakfast, strict and early quiet hours, and kitchen is locked off. The shower and the toilet are in the same room, which is normally no problem, but there's not even a shield between the shower and the toilet. So it's common for the toilets to be soaked with water from the shower. The water from the shower also drains right next to the toilet. Some rooms are walled off from each other, but other rooms, like the one I stayed in, only have a cheap DIY wall between them. They are very flimsy, and I could feel the movements of another persons bed from my bed... On top of that, the walls only go up half of the height of the actual room, so it wouldn't be hard to jump over and you can hear everything that goes on. My room was more like a 16 person bedroom. There are no lockers, so I had to lock my backpack to my bed. The alternative security would be to give your valuables to the owner, but then accessing them could be a challenge. Breakfast is the exact same every morning: lemon croissant, bread roll, packaged bread, a glass of OJ P, and a coffee/tea. It gets old really fast, and for the price of the hostel, I expected a little more. At around 23:00 (Mon-Sun), room lights are to be shut off and people can't talk or gather. I understand why the hostel owners would want people to be quiet after 23:00, but to force people to shut off their room lights? Finally, there's access to a kitchen area, which only has a refrigerator, but it's always locked. In order to gain entry, you need to find one of the two owners to unlock it for you. Major inconvenience if you're trying to get an early start.

I do not recommend this hostel unless you're really on a budget and durable. I think you can find much better options for close to the same price if you do research and book well in advance.
