Description

We’re here to stop you doing anything too extraordinary! Beach backpacker life is just not like that.
Lounging… by the pool to the scent of a herb garden; BBQing… at sunset among fruit trees and jasmine gazebo; Playing… with super-friendly puppies, Tequila and Lupo, or with one of our other cool guests; Tanning… a gorgeous bronzed colour over a wine or beer… … These are the things that we’re about.
When you reach us you'll have seen some pretty amazing sites in this fabulous old country.
Well, you won’t here… .
.
.
unless beautiful Italian beach bodies are your thing.
We're on the Main Street of 'the most beautiful thermal island in the world', overlooking Capri, Mt Vesuvius, and the Sorrento Peninsular.
One reviewer said recently, we are your “Holiday’s Holiday” Hostel… a real review from a real reviewer – I guess, that’s an extraordinary find in a popular tourist area! The hostel: But we’re not just about sitting on your arse doing nothing though… … you'll enjoy an outdoor pool with music playing into the night, a summer games bar, running tap water (!), a communal kitchen, and the summer SUN shining on you for 16 hours a day! Then there are group trips to clubs, beaches, restaurants, hot springs, archaeological sites, pubs, and mountain tops.
We even organise boat cruises.
Strenuous, eh! Sometimes you even have to pour your own coffee at breakfast on a terrace overlooking the turquoise Mediterranean and watched by an ancient volcano.
Extraordinary? No, it’s just a wretched part of the daily island grind.
You'll get fresh, sundried linen, a secure place for your possessions, a cosy bed, clean bathrooms, sassy social socializing spots, help with your bookings, travel plans, and summer day-excursions to Amalfi, Sorrento and Capri.
You really won’t regret sleeping with us! The Island: The Romans sunbathed here; the Spanish bathed, the Greeks and French did Greek and French things.
Life really hasn’t changed much in 3,000 years – and you will do what they did.
But, we have fast, free WI-FI, as well.
We’ll recommend you the best foods and wines in Italy on top of the island, at one of the many cheap, local, hidden gems.
We don’t own a restaurant so we have no axe to grind; our recommendations are as impartial as they are delicious, from tried and true experience.
And, while you’re close to all the best the island has to offer, you won't be stuck in the stuffy, hot centre of some noisy city.
What you’ll hear is the sea lapping against the beach, the ice clinking on your glass and the wonderfully symphonic Australian accents of your fellow hostellers by the pool.
We really are here to stop you doing anything extraordinary! So then, where the bloody hell are you, mate? We're 40 minutes by boat from the mainland and buses stop right outside our gate.
There’s supermarkets, restaurants and bars within 5 minutes or so from us.
Then, sitting with friends, a cocktail and a BBQ, watching the sun dip into the sea, you'll appreciate this irony.

at Paradise Beach Hostel, the sun never truly sets! Book your sunset here today!

Directions

TO NAPOLI (NAPLES) – trains leave from Rome every half hour and, depending on how much you spend, it takes between 1 and 4 hours.
For about 20 € there's an easy 2-hour train, and the ones for roughly 10 € leave 4 times daily.
By plane, you can fly directly to Napoli from just about anywhere in the world.
And it's much cooler than Rome.
FROM THE MAINLAND – catch a boat across the spectacular Gulf from Naples, Pozzuoli, Sorrento, Procida, Salerno, Positano, Amalfi or Capri and sail to Forio (which is then only 5 minutes by bus from our door), or to Casamicciola (about 20 minutes) or Ischia Porto (30 minutes).
From Sorrento and Capri, the fast boats (aliscafi) leave from the Marina Piccola and, like the ones from Salerno, Amalfi and Positano, they operate from Spring to Autumn.

it/calendario_partenze.
php FROM NAPOLI CENTRALE RAILWAY STATION – cross the big piazza out the front, passing the eternal Metro construction site, and catch Tram '1' going left (when looking away from the station) to the last stop.
On the port side is Molo Beverello where the fast boats (aliscafi) depart for Forio.
TO THE CHEAPER BOATS – from Beverello, go behind the cafes, away from the fast boat terminal, and catch the free, blue shuttle bus to Calata Porto Di Massa (about 5 minutes away by walking).
.
.
On the island… BUSES FROM ALL PORTS – catch the buses numbered 'CS' or '1', going left (when you are facing the sea).
The bus stops are outside the port area on the same side of the street as the port, except at Ischia Porto.
At Ischia Porto you must walk around the port to the main bus stop (la capolinea).
It’s easy to find us.
After you leave Forio – all the buses go through Forio – 1 LOOK for the big sign on the front of a hotel saying “SORRISO Thermae Resort” on the right of the bus (5-10 minutes out of Forio).
Beware of the various small directional signs for Sorriso… the sign you want is huge and on a hotel building.
When you see it, wait until you.
.
.
2 GO AROUND THE CORNER, then press the bell… 3 GET OFF at the next stop and look behind the bus.
You’ll see our sign saying “PARADISE BEACH”.
Walk 30 seconds or so down our original, historically ancient, island path to the big white building.
We’re here to help, and while you’re probably a fit backpacker, if you’re not, leave your bag at the TOP OF THE STEPS and come down to get some help.
