Paradise Beach Hostel

via Provinciale Panza, 387


… you'll enjoy an outdoor POOL with MUSIC playing into the night, a summer games BAR, running tap water (!), a communal KITCHEN, and the summer SUN shining on you for 16 hours a day! Then there are group trips to clubs, BEACHES, restaurants, HOT SPRINGS, archaeological sites, PUBS, and mountain tops. We even organise BOAT cruises. Strenuous, eh! Sometimes you even have to pour your own COFFEE at breakfast on a terrace overlooking the turquoise Mediterranean and watched by an ancient VOLCANO. Extraordinary? No, it’s just a wretched part of the daily island grind.

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!


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 FAST, free WI-FI, as well.

We're 40 minutes by boat from the mainland and buses stop right outside our gate. There’s supermarkets, restaurants and bars within 5 minutes or so from us.

Then, sitting with friends, a cocktail and a BBQ, watching the sun dip into the sea, you'll appreciate this irony... at Paradise Beach Hostel, the sun never truly sets!

Book your sunset here today!

“Laidback and friendly”

I am not familiar with hostels and usually stay at bnbs (and sometimes couchsurfing) but as this was my first, I think I'm now a commited hostel guest. The owner Shawn and the others there...

“Ocean views and the sound of crashing waves on a budget WITH THREE DOGS!!! :D”

THE GOOD Stayed here in the (very) dead season and was upgraded to a private room with ensuite which was amazing! The room had an amazing view of the ocean and I woke up every morning to the sound...

FROM NAPOLI CENTRALE RAILWAY STATION – cross the big piazza out the front, passing the eternal Metro construction site, and catch Tram '1' going left (when looking away from the station) to the last stop. On the port side is Molo Beverello where the fast boats (aliscafi) depart for Forio.

TO THE CHEAPER BOATS – from Beverello, go behind the cafes, away from the fast boat terminal, and catch the free, blue shuttle bus to Calata Porto Di Massa (about 5 minutes away by walking)...

On the island…

BUSES FROM ALL PORTS – catch the buses numbered 'CS' or '1', going left (when you are facing the sea). The bus stops are outside the port area on the same side of the street as the port, except at Ischia Porto. At Ischia Porto you must walk around the port to the main bus stop (la capolinea).

It’s easy to find us. After you leave Forio – all the buses go through Forio –

1 LOOK for the big sign on the front of a hotel saying “SORRISO Thermae Resort” on the right of the bus (5-10 minutes out of Forio). Beware of the various small directional signs for Sorriso… the sign you want is huge and on a hotel building. When you see it, wait until you...

2 GO AROUND THE CORNER, then press the bell…

3 GET OFF at the next stop and look behind the bus. You’ll see our sign saying “PARADISE BEACH”. Walk 30 seconds or so down our original, historically ancient, island path to the big white building.


Cancelling: We’ll make sure you have a bed when you arrive and if you don’t want it, let us know so we can resell it. Cancelling without giving us 7 days notice in advance will probably mean you’ll get charged for your whole booking, but we will try to resell your bed to prevent this.

We're a pretty flexible bunch here, some prettier and some more flexible, but the prices quoted and booked by you are DISCOUNTED, and are only valid if you pay cash when checking-in or when booking your extended stay... which we think you'll do! If you choose to use other forms of payment the prices are not discounted and you must pay our Standard Rate, which is an extra 3 € per person per night.

Check-in: Check-in can be done at anytime but let us know if you will be arriving after 8 pm or before 8 am. We MAY NOT be able to let you into your room until 2 pm (because people will be sleeping in it), but you can leave your bags and do all the check-in formalities, have a drink, a shower, and watch a video, go to the beach, or chat-up one of the locals. Actually, you don't really need a room!!

Refunds: All payments to the hostel are non-refundable.

Check-out: Check-out of your room by 11am on the day you are leaving, and bring us your pillowcase so we know which bed needs making. You can leave your bags with us for the day, and you can store them with us if you are returning to stay at a later date.
