Where to begin? Giovanni is amazing! He is like the father of the hostel! He gives a big explanation of the city when you first get in, which is very informative and interesting. You can definitely tell he loves the city. And he cares a lot about the people staying there. He makes very good food for his guests, and... More

i have stayed at Giovanni's home many many times, i sleep there every time i need to visit Naples. The selling point is certainly Giovanni's hospitality, he acts like a proper host, and not just like somone who's making money out of your stay there. He also cooks the best meals ever! Upon arrival he gives you a big map... More

I highly recommend this place to anyone who is visting Naples for the first time, I'm sure you'll want to come back many more times! It's a great environment, the hostel is cozy and clean and Giovanni himself is very friendly. Giovanni's home is conveniently located in the heart of the city. This is ideal if you're planning on spending... More

I don't think Naples would have been the same if I didn't stay here. Giovanni is very passionate and informative about Naples. This is very useful when you first arrive and are not familiar with the area at all. He will help you with whatever you need and even cooks up big meals when a lot of us are around.... More

Giovanni really made my stay in Napoli amazing!! I was originally just coming to see Pompeii, Mt Vesuvius etc but Giovanni's explanation of all the things that there are to see and do really opened my eyes to what the city has to offer! I did and saw so many things that I wouldn't have without him. The hostel is... More

The good You do not need a free walking tour with Giovanni's 15 minute intro to Naples. Whatever you want however he can help he will. Perfect location for wandering around the real Naples. He even knocked up a lunch for a dozen of us out on the terrace. Foc. The bad If you are 6' tall and weigh over... More

Giovanni and his home are the main reasons I ended loving naples so much. Giovanni is a born and bred neopolitan man proud of his city and is eager to show others. His trademark slide show presentation gives all the ins and outs of naples from both a tourist and locals standpoint. Following his advice, I managed to see some... More

Out of the 60 countries I've travelled this rates as one of the best hostels. Giovanni really knows how to look after his guests. I have never met hostel staff so friendly, funny and kind.

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
