My partner and I stayed here mid September and had a lovely experience. The rooms are a good size, good shower and are spotless. There is also air conditioning and hairdryer provided. My only complaint was there is only one mirror which is in the bathroom and as there are no windows in the bathroom it got very steamed up (and took over half an hour to desteam) so I did not have a mirror to get ready in front of.
Breakfast is basic but nice and Constanzo makes a lovely home made lemon cake! I don't drink coffee but my partner did not enjoy the coffee served unfortunately.
The location was fine or us (it is a 20/25 minute walk to the main part of Anacapri but 10/15 to the bus stop) but as the B&B is uphill the walk back would be too much for some people so bear this in mind.
Constanzo was very helpful and we did take advantage of his recommendation of a friend who arranges boat trips round the island. Even though expensive at 130 euros for 2 hours it is definitely worth doing rather than going on the cattle boats which looked pretty awful! We timed the tour so we arrived at the Blue Grotto around 5.30 (at this time you are able to swim inside-this was one of the best experiences of our entire 2 week Italy trip).
Constanzo recommended a couple of places to eat- one which I can't remember the name of (it is just by the main square bus stop on the main road) wasn't great but Da Gelsomina was just fantastic and a 5 minute walk from the B&B! You can watch the sunset from a good point not far after this place too.
Do make sure you get Constanzo to give you directions when you arrive- he will pick up from the final bus stop. You couldn't do the walk with suitcases!
Overall, great value for money compared to the hotels. Another tip- don't bother with eating in Capri, it is not at all good value for money.
