Reviewed 9 May 2013

We too though we we're going to a hostel but for us we we pleasantly surprised it was more of a hotel. The rooms are basic but clean and comfortable. We arrived to 2 guest making pizza with the hosts which we could eat for 'all you can eat' pizza for 5euro,bargin. And it was amazing and fresh ingredients all in a wood fire oven. They put on a really good continental breakfast for 5euro as well. It's is a 15min walk to town, but we enjoyed being away from it all and taking the scenic route back to the hotel. I wish I had stayed an extra day to do their pizza making course and their 4 course dinner course too. We found the family lovely and they really make you part of their family. The younger ones also speak English really well just be clear about what you want.

There's not atmosphere at all... and it's really FAR away from Sorrento (15 mins by train, and train station is 15 mins walk). The family that runs it, has no English, so they're not available to provide you any information regarding the city. There are not stores, or bars or anything around the Hostel. Breakfast is not included, but the 5 EUR are well worth... you have all the GREAT leftovers from the cooking classes they have.

We have just returned after a week at this B&B is Sant Agnello.

Pluses include the excellent breakfast, served in the dining area which is also shared by the family - and a hopeful dog! You really can't fault fresh orange juice, cappuccino, ham, sausage, cheese, scrambled egg, cereal (muesli or corn flakes) and a nice selection of bread, pastries and home made preserves (sometimes supplemented with what they cooked the previous night at the school). Our room (no.7) was pleasant enough, and had a nice view towards the hills behind Sorrento. The owner chauffeured us to the station to catch the airport bus, rather than allowing us to book a taxi. (Taxi fares are a rip off - 15 euros to do the mile and a half into Sorrento - and as the advertised line C bus service past the hotel doesn't actually run, it's either a taxi or a 20 minute walk into town.)

The minuses - and these worried my wife more than me - were that everything had seen better days. They fixed the broken shower fitting after we complained about it - but clearly it had been broken for ages, and unless you complain, nothing gets fixed. Also the maid was supposed to leave shower gel, but never did - even though we went downstairs several times asking for some. The whole place - from the rather dowdy fittings in the bedroom to the crumbling rendering on the building - has that air of rather more than gentle decay. However that's at east made up for by the friendliness of the owners, and in the end that's what really matters.

My husband and I stayed here on our honeymoon. Our room was fantastic! It was on the roof with a private bathroom and ice cold air conditioning. The B&B is a quick walk to a restaurant on the edge of a cliff. We enjoyed a beautiful sunset while we ate there. Definitely take advantage of the cooking school and the Capri boat trip! We did both, and they were amazing. We actually got to swim inside the Blue Grotto. The dinner we had at the cooking school was absolutely phenomenal and quite a steal. The center of Sorrento is a bit of a hike, but the walk is beautiful so we didn't mind. A fantastic place, we would love to return someday!

We had a very pleasant stay of 4 nights. The breakfasts were really good with a full range of options every morning. Sadly we didn't have enough time to try the evening meal (4 courses) offered each night at the cookery school (18 Euros), but we didn't hear anything detrimental. The staff are very pleasant & helpful. We had a large family room at the back of the hotel which made it quiet at night and in the morning as the road at the front is quite busy. It is at least a half hour walk to Sorrento main square, but there are bus options. It is only about a 5 minute walk to the seafront & there is a lift to get you down to the beach. San Agnello is a less touristy option than Sorrento and still has all the amenities and transport.

I stayed at Mami Camilla in the hostel room in May 2012 and return again in September 2012 staying in a twin BnB room with my father. I found Mami Camilla's to be one of the most charming BnBs I have ever visited. On my first visit I booked for two days and enjoyed myself so much that I extended my stay for almost two weeks. On my second visit, we extended an extra night again! Within a couple of days you are on first name basis with all the staff especially the lovely and accommodating Laura and Tomaso work take care of the front of house.

The rooms are clean and comfortable, the common area is a great place to relax and meet other travelers, the garden is quiet and perfect for catching some sun and reading, the wifi is strong and consistent and it location is great. About a 15 minute walk to Sorrento town center but far enough away to enjoy the quiet and sleep well.

They also offer a range of great activities (but without the hard, pushy sell). I took the day boat trip to Capri as well as took part in their famous cooking classes. Both were truly memorable experiences and value for money.

I highly recommend stay at Mami Camilla - in fact, WHEN I visit again, I wouldn't even consider staying elsewhere.

we had a good experience at this fantastic place. had the opportunity to eat dinner with "chefs" and "chef to be" enrolled at this unique cooking school. The Owners are very pleasant and become your friends.
