The Youth Hostel in Agerola (San Lazzaro), 650m above the Amalfi coast, was one of the first A.I.G. Hostels to open in Italy. Since 1949 it has occupied the original stables of the gatehouse to the long gone Castel Avitabile (1791-1850). The building itself is of historic interest as it is a Protected Building. Only the inside has been renovated, creating the Hostel and the Guest Rooms (2008), both of which have full bathroom facilities, living areas and lavish kitchens. The main Piazza and bus stop are directly in front of the building and behind and to the sides is the Campsite, with four large, grassy, shaded zones, fully equipped for tents or campervans.

SuspendED  MIDWAY between the blue of the sea and the sky...

   Agerola is a dream-like location. Close enough for day trips to the Amalfi coast, Capri and Pompei, Positano and Sorrento and yet secluded and isolated, thus offering privacy and a really healthy look at how life has gone on in southern Italy for hundreds of years. Though a small town, it is relatively spread out, offering the most incredible views down to the sparkling, clear-blue sea lapping at the Amalfi coastline, 650m directly below. Or you might prefer the surrounding mountains, rising to almost 1400m. Walks, trails, hikes and climbs are all a must for the more adventurous, but the friendliness of the people, traditional cooking and products as well as the relaxed lifestyle will transfix you in no time and have you wishing you could stay forever.
