Like most of the previous reviewers, I cannot but give the highest mark to Giovanni's Home, which indeed feels like a home away from home. Conveniently located in the midst of the historical center. Giovanni, the host and owner, welcomes his guests with open arms, provides the best information (both on where and what to eat, where to go and... More

I would definitely recommend staying here, great central location, good value for money, great chilled out atmosphere and really good for meeting people. Perhaps the best part is the host Giovanni, he treats you like family, is always willing to help, cooks lovely authentic food for you on occasion and tells you all the best places to go in Naples....

Giovanni is such a legend. He is such an amazing host and obviously puts so much love into what he does. We were welcomed with cold water and the most amazing risotto! We were then given a proper introduction to Naples and given advice on where to go and what to see. It was really helpful. I didn't realize how... More

I don't have enough words to express how great was my time in this city and in this hostel. I intended to stay only 3 nights, just to see pompei, ercolano, the vesuvio and look around, but after listenning to Giovanni's explanation about the city and about all the places I could go, I decided to spend a whole week....

I would highly recommend staying at Giovanni's when visiting Naples. When you first arrive Giovanni greets you with a glass of water and sits down with a map of Naples and goes over all the attractions. Very helpful! He also cooks lunch for the hostel everyday, very good food. I stayed in an 8 bed female dorm, standard hostel set... More

Giovanni is the most amazing host I have ever come across on my travels He cares about his guests and goes out his way to give everyone a memorable stay. I arrived from the airport and Giovanni arranged a taxi for me as it was late at night. When I arrived he gave me a bowl of delicious risotto and... More

Giovanni's Home is great. Giovanni is a perfect host, he is a wealth of information and he'll feed you as well (and feed you well). As for Naples, it is the most beautiful city I have ever seen. Don't let a ridiculous reputation scare you, it is safe and overwhelmingly beautiful. Living in rome, I go to Giovanni's whenever I... More

Giovanni's Home is more like a homestay than a hostel - you simply feel like home in there! Just like other travelers, upon my arrival, I was given detailed information on where to go and to avoid, also gave me a lot of useful advise (such as where to get the best pizza in town!). He also made us pasta,... More

Not only an hostel, this place will teach you (if you're one with an open heart) one or two things about empathy and the importance of simple things in life. Giovanni lives for his guests, he takes his job very seriously, he is the perfect host. He will make sure you are safe, comfortable and that your experience in Napoli... More

I can't reccommend this hostel highly enough! When we arrived we were greeted with a smiling Giovanni and a glass of water. Giovanni creates such a great atmosphere in the hostel, it's easy to meet others and you feel right at home. Great facilities and the extra touches like musical instruments and the terrace go a long way. Great beds,... More
