I had such a great time at Ring Hostel that I decided to stay longer! Everyone was so friendly, and the location is great right next to the Forio port, accessible from Naples by a direct ferry. You can easily explore the island with the help of the amazing staff. There is a great rooftop terrace to chill at night...

We (a friend of mine and me) stayed for 2 nights at the Hostel and we had a great time. Its located in a peaceful and quiet area with just a 7 minutes walk to the beach. The rooms and facilities were all clean, but simple. But of course, for the price its very reasonable and better than we expected....

The hostel is well located on Ischia island but the cleanliness was awful. The showers and toilets in the hostel were very dirty. The toilet brush was in the shower, the toilet did not flush. There were only 3 bathrooms for more or less 50 people and they weren't cleaned in the 2 days we stayed there. The bathrooms were...

Wonderful location, great price, perfect hosts (both Lorenzo and Maria are lovely). You get a taste of being local, all guests share fun and experiences - tons of communal space. We came for 2 days and were sorry to leave 4 days later:) I whole hearterdly recommend this place.

Ring Hostel is in an amazing location, and the owner Lorenzo could not be a better host. He and his family are from Ischia, and love the island with all their hearts.

Please avoid it. The hostel is really far away from european hostels (for same price or less you get much better abroad). The room they gave us was not the one we booked but just the one good for the owner. The owner was really friendly and helpful about Ischia information but maybe too busy to manage august guests.
