Ulisse Deluxe Hostel
Ranked #34 of 100 Hotels in Sorrento
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 October 2009

This is a great hotel for the price you pay. The hotel is exceptionally clean and the rooms are big and nicely laid out. Overall we had an excellent stay.

Our only criticism of the hotel is the tiled floor, which can be noisy (...inconsiderate guests, you know who you are...) and we were sometimes 'rattled' by the cars in the carpark above in early evening/morning but this probably depends on your room number.

As other reviews have said, it's on the 'wrong end' of Sorrento for the Circumvesuviana and buses but it's a very easy 10-15 minute walk to the station and only about 5 minutes to get into the town 'centre' . We never found the distances a problem, even with cases.

Tip: For restaurants, walk down the road to the Marina Grande (aprox 10-15 mins) where the restaurants (especially Delfino's at the far end) are much nicer/quiter than those in the centre of town. You won't regret doing this....

Most people that heard I had chosen a hostel to start the first four nights of a glorious Amalfi coast trip said I was crazy. But much to our surprise this was not a hostel but more a deluxe hotel. It was extremely neat and clean, had wonderfully comfortable beds, a huge bathroom and after just one day of getting familiar with the area we found a short cut to the main street of town so it was also very conveinient. Above all it was quite inexpensive and the staff (in particular, Kiara,) was so very helpful & charming. I was not too impressed with breakfast there & found many other options. I would highly recommend staying here. Don't miss it, I'm sure you would love it. I'd stay there again without a second thought. Sorrento was the best place to base in order to see Pompeii, Capri and the Amalfi coast.

What a great find! The Ulisse is more like a 3+star hotel. It is clean and new with nice breakfast available for an additional 5 euros per person. The price can't be beat. The only negative we might have is that it's a 20 minute walk from the train station & SITA bus stop for Amalfi. However, it is within easy walking distance of restaurants, beach, etc. We appreciated the availability of computers with internet access for a very reasonable price.

I could not believe my good fortune when I arrived at this so-called hostel. Ulisse is located very conveniently so that you can walk to any place in lovely Sorrento. The Via Caesare, a narrow pedestrian lane lined with stores, churches and restaurants, is literally within a 2 minute walk. The staff was knowledgeable and enthusiastic while sharing tips on where to visit, eat, how to get to various places. The room was clean and commodious with a view of the mountainside. The bathroom was large and anything but sparse. The lobby is huge and comfortable. There is a library/reading room and a computer room. Breakfast each morning offered a variety of sweet or savory items, more than enough to fortify you for a busy day. I found the staff to be exceptional, going out of their way to accommodate requests and to share their knowledge and very apparent love of Italy. I was amazing to find a chilled bottle of champagne in a silver bucket with several glasses waiting for me when I returned to my room on my birthday with a lovely note. Chiara, Claudia, Pasquale et. al. are what make Italy and Ulisse so very special.

If you are considering staying at Ulisse Deluxe Hostel, book it now before someone else does !!! Do not be put off by the Hostel description. Ulisse is better than many 3 and 4 star hotels I have stayed in. It was recommended to me by a friend who previously stayed. Interestingly most other guests were couples. The photographs on their website are accurate and show spacious reception, lounge and restaurant areas and very well furnished bedrooms. We were a party of 5 adults needing a double and a triple toom. The triple room had a room with two single beds and a bathroom. Through another door was a double bed and another bathroom. Our double room had a double and a single bed and full bathroom. Throughout Ulisse the shining tiled floors let you know the place is well maintained. A buffet breakfast is available and snacks are available throughout the day. There is not a full restaurant service, but on holiday I never eat dinner in my hotel. There is on site parking and internet access available at additional cost. The location is close to the little harbour and a short walk to the main shopping and tourist area of Sorrento. There is a Wellness centre attached to Ulisse, which guests can use at reduced cost. Accommodation costs are less than half normal hotel rates and incredible value for money. All staff are fantastic, especially Chiara who was very helpful with tourist advice and patient with my email booking. If I return to Sorrento I will definitely book Ulisse Deluxe Hostel again.

It is hard to believe this great place is advertised as a hostel. This is a hotel, as good or better that other hotels advertised as a 3 star hotel. If you want to explore the Amalfi Coast do not look any further, this is the place you want to be. The location is great; you are not more than a 5 minute walk to the pedestrian street of Sorrento that leads you to the center of town in no more than 15 minutes. From the center you can walk five minutes more to the bus or train station that will connect you to many towns in the area, including Pompeii, Amalfi or Ravello or Possitano. This hotel is also about 15 minute walk to the Marina Grande, which is the small marina, and about 30 minute walk or 5 minute cab drive to Marina Piccola where all the ferries leave to any destination in the area. In addition to the location, the place is clean and comfortable, if you find that the room is small, which is not considering the size of rooms in Europe, you could use the lobby, the reading rooms with great books, or the internet room. The Breakfast is more than you need and more than we got in the other hotels including a 4 star hotel we stayed at in Capri. But the best of all is the staff. Chiara, Claudia, Pasquale, and others. You feel welcome when dealing with them; they are knowledgeable about the area, helpful, professional and very warm. Interacting with them was part of the charm of Italy. We definitely treasure our memories of Italy and the staff in this hotel will be part of great memories.
