Amalfi Coast on a budget??

Amalfi Coast on a budget??


A friend and I are looking to book a 10 day holiday in late June and are thinking about the Amalfi Coast as an option. Our biggest concern is budget though, having heard lots of tales of expensive hotels and extortionate restaurant prices!

I was wondering if anyone could recommend any great budget options, particularly for accommodation?

We are thinking about potentially combining being based out of Sorrento or Positano with one or two nights on Capri. Alternatively would we be better to look at basing ourselves out of Amalfi?

Any help and advice would be hugely appreciated.

We stayed at the Beata Solituda hostel in Agerola (San Lazaro) in March for about $16/person/night. Clean. Friendly. It does have a tight circular stair to the rooms.

When you get off the bus, turn around 180 degrees & it's behind you. Office is through the tunnel to the left.

Hi Sarah22, if you're thinking of Sorrento one option might be this place http://www.ulissedeluxe.com/index_english.htm

It is called a hostel but its not really, there is some technicality or something that means it cant be called a hotel. But anyway, it is situated in Sorrento town centre but in a quieter location. The rates are about 40 euros per person per night. Have a look at the reviews too tripadvisor.co.uk/Hotel_Review-g187782-d1036…

From Sorrento you can do trips to Capri, Positano, Amalfi etc. Might work out cheaper to stay in one place and do day trips from there. The public transport is really good, cheap and easy to use. Capri is only about 20 mins away by hydrofoil.
