When you come to Giovannis, it's not a hostel experience. It's like staying in the home of a close family friend, someone who will look after you and make sure your stay in Naples in nothing short of perfect. His pasta and risotto might be out of this world fantastic, that goes without saying, but it's the atmosphere of the... More

I have been lucky enough to stay in this hostel around 8/9 times. Of course you are only allowed to review on hostelworld.com once, so I thought I'd have my stay on here too. This is not a hostel, it is a warm, friendly, safe environment where you will be looked after and given the best information about the beautiful... More

We came from Rome to Naples on our journey through Europe as a young backpacking couple. We came to Naples basically for Pompeii and Mt. Vesuvius (the volcano). Well, there is a lot more to do here then you think! We caught a train from Rome and arrived around 12:30pm to Naples. We got to Giovannis by metro 1 train... More

The reviews on this hostel and giovanni seemed too good to be true, but they really are legitimate. We almost didnt come to naples because of how dangerous everyone warned us it would be. I would only recommend coming to naples, if you stay at giovannis. We arrived after 1030 at night, which we took a taxi, that dropped us... More

A really nice and inexpensive place to stay in Naples. Giovanni is amazing. He cooked a meal for us and talked at length about Naples and Italy. He also provides you the best possible way to explore Naples and pompei. He can come out as opinionated but I liked his inputs. Although he did provide very detail steps on how... More

My friend and I arrived in Naples at night knowing absolutely nothing about the city and planning to stay for 2 days. Instead we had 11 of the most incredible days of our 4 month European adventure. And this was almost all due to Giovanni. He gave the most amazingly in-depth introduction to this incredible city and was constantly giving... More

Sometimes he cooks for everybody and he also sings and play the guittar and the harmonica, He is a real entertainer. The hostel has... More

I have to say this is one really special hostel, it's actually Giovanni's appartment. The first thing that struck me was when we entered Giovanni gave us a glass of cold water and believe me it really helps after walking in the sun to the hostel and going up 3 flights of stairs. After that Giovanni kindly gave us a... More

You literally arrive to the spacious apartment of somebody's home. Giovanni is the man, who lives there, caring about the place and you most of the time. He strives to have control over things, but this is done for your sake in the end. Allow him degree of that comfort, and enjoy your free ride. Napoli is astonishing, as are... More

He not only gives great travel advice, he is also a great cook and guitar player and singer. A man of many talents indeed. and he cares about people - i was travelling with another girl and he worried... More
