Ring Hostel has the most lovely atmosphere I felt at home as soon as I arrived. The hostel itself is so cosy, there's a pool table, computers which are free to use, a soundsystem, a tv and a couple roof terraces. You can use the kitchen to cook what you like and the whole place is so sociable you never...

I don't think I would have enjoyed my stay in Forio as much if not for the hospitality of the wonderful Colella family. Even then, Giuseppe was always trying to make our stay better. He was always willing to give advice, help with bookings, and make sure you have a good time on the island. The location is a bit...

The Ring Hostel is fantastic, the staff are enthusiastic, the island is beautiful and the location is brilliant. I stayed here for 2 nights, went to Napoli for 4 nights then came straight back to Ischia again. It's owned by 3 brothers who know the island inside out, they have a family restaurant, which they provide transport there and back...

I highly recommend this hostel. All guests are truly welcomed into the family of Ring Hostel the moment they arrive. I intended to only spend one night there and couldn't get out of there until five days had gone by! We were overwhelmed with all of the wonderful things to do, places to go, people to meet, and how much...

I LOVED staying at the Ring Hostel. The hostel was located in a great spot, just a short walk from the town center, easy walking distance from an ATM, lots of restaurants, shops, and of course the beach! The staff was incredible: friendly, helpful and accommodating and the rooms were clean and bright with lockers to put your stuff in....

I visited Ischia for the first time almost by accident – what a delightful discovery! While wandering around Napoli I heard about this island just off the coast and decided to check it out. I wasn’t sure how to plan my trip, since (as a single female traveler) it’s often tricky to find a good place to stay, one where...

The hostel is located in the center of Forio close to lots of shops, restaurants, and cafes which made things so much easier. The owners and staff were so friendly and helpful.

I had an amazing time at the ring hostel. Although it was a little hard to find, we called the hostel and they gave us great directions and even met us outside.
