“Excellent--make it your base for exploring Bay of Naples”
Reviewed 24 June 2006

Just an excellent place. My partner and I stayed here for NINE nights in a row, it was so good: we made it our base of operations for visiting the entire Bay of Naples area. It's just so centrally located: 5 minutes walk to the Pompei FS (i.e., official state) train station, 5 minutes walk to the Pompei Santuario Circumvesuviana train station, and 10 minutes walk to the alternate south-eastern entrance to the ancient site (which is a FAR less crowded entrance than the other, more main, entrance to the site, the so-called "Porta Marina" entrance at the western end of the site).
With this hostel's amazingly convenient proximity to the trains, you can just stay here instead of in (much more expensive and much more dangerous) Naples, and use Pompei as home base. You want to visit ancient Pompeii itself?--just 10 minutes walk away. You want to visit ancient Herculaneum?--just 25 minutes away on the Circumvesuviana train. You want to visit Naples itself?--just 50 minutes away on the Circumvesuviana. You want to visit Sorrento?--just take the Circumvesuviana in the other direction. You want to visit ancient Paestum (DO NOT miss this awesome day-trip!!!)?--just take a train to Paestum from the FS train station in Pompei; Paestum is only 1.25 hours away on train from Pompei.
And the hostel itself is just a pleasure: Clean (there is even maid service which cleans your room every day or two!). Nice layout (rooms clustered around a central fountain area, reflecting the layout of the convent which this hostel used to be). Cheap cheap cheap! Yes, noise can be a problem, if others want to hang out and drink/chat all night in the central courtyard (though earplugs solve this problem immediately); but we were here for nine nights in June, and only encountered noise problems one night during our stay.
Yes, the breakfast is a bit stripped-down. But what does one expect in a hostel? Besides, the rooms here are so reasonably priced, you can buy a full breakfast elsewhere with all the money you're saving and still come out well ahead in the deal.
To sum up: You want to visit the Bay of Naples area on a budget? Great. Just don't stay in Naples itself. Stay here in Pompei.

Villa Pellegrino is set in a 220 hectre estate on the edge of Marsala, 10 minutes from downtown. Just opened this year, the room is in a seperate building below the main house and is surrounded by trees. Space is not a problem! Your hosts are welcoming and very helpful. After a week on the road, we used the privacy and comfort of the villa for a good rest. If you have a car, it is worth staying several days and using this as a base to tour western Sicily.

This hostel was mostly clean and well-kept, but my group did come across a few problems. Upon arrival, in very cold weather, we realized that our rooms had no working heat or hot water, which was defintely a negative. The reception said that there was a problem with pipes that had occurred just hours before we came. I would absolutely reccommend bringing your own blanket, incase these problems happen again. Those of us without blankets to spare had difficulty sleeping in the ice cold air. Some of the bedding we were supplied with had "mystery stains", but I suppose you get what you pay for.
Overall, the trip was great, but the accommadations could have been better. If you are looking for some place to stay on a budget, I would reccommend packing a blanket and visiting Casa del Pellegrino.
