Default Ring Hostel, Forio de Ischia, Italy

OH my god, I sooooooooooo love this place, and will be returning next year with my wife, as she was in France with her mom while I was staying on Ischia Island. Anyways, there are 2 brothers who run this place, and it is actually the home they grew up in, and they soon turned it into a Hostel. They also own a hotel on the Island. Anyway, the only tough part is that you have to make your way to the hotel to check in, where when I arrived, there grandmother cooked me the most fabulous lunch, right when i arrived to check in. SOOOO great. They put me on the back of a scooter and took me to the hostel. It is 3 stories tall, and the Italian design is so beautiful. I had a private room on the third floor, but every floor had a common area and kitchen. The top floor had the best patio with a view of the volcano, and then you could climb up onto the rooftop for a terrific view of the Med. Not much was included while there, but they always offer a dinner for hostel travelers once again prepared by there grandmother. Talk about true Italian cooking. Oh yeah. The hostel is a small walk fromt the town center of Forio, but it is the most pleasant walk, and if you ask, there is a grocer directly next door. I was buying bigsize Peroni for 1 euro, and bottles of wine for 2 euro. I can't say enough about this hostel!!! Just perfect. Here are some picks. The yellow building is the hostel.

This is the main common room on the first floor

This is the patio on the top floor

And this is the BEST beach i found there, about a 10 minute walk to the left side of the when walking the the sidewalk out of the Forio centre
