The hostel is in a central position in San Larenzzo, which is a small town in the district of Agerola. It took me some time to work this out. I thought the hostel was in the town of Agerola, so perhaps this should be made clear in the description. It is a 45 minute bus ride to the main sights, Amalfi and Positano etc. but there are some hikes nearby.
