When we arrived in Naples we were at first dubious about what we would see and if we would like it. However when we arrived at Giovanni's Home our perception changed completely. Giovanni is very passionate about Naples and a lot of his passion has rubbed off on us. He presented us with a map on which he pointed out... More

Giovanni's was a great hostel for a great city. Likewise to other travellers, Giovanni gave us a hour long chat when we arrived concerning Naples, things to do in Naples, hidden treasures within the city, he also showed us what to do in surrounding areas (Amalfi Coast / Pompeii / Capri etc.). WiFi was good (didn't reach my room) Clean... More

Giovanni is a friendly and well informed individual who will ensure your stay in Naples is one best suited to your interests. He will tell you the history of the city as well as the best places to go. The location is great for reaching all the important parts of the city. The rooms are clean and well air conditioned...

If you ever go to Naples you have to stay at Giovanni's Home. As soon as you arrive he will get you a drink of water and then you will get the history of Italy and the places where to go and the places not to go in Nalples his advice for going around the area is brilliant. The facilities... More

I had a great stay at this hostel! Giovanni was such a great host and was very helpful. He cooked such great food, allowed me to do my laundry, stored my bags while I travelled to the islands and made me feel so at home! He knows you by name and makes sure that you are safe! I loved staying... More

We stayed at Giovanni's a couple years ago and still talk about it to this day! We have never stayed at a hostel and felt so at home. Upon arrival, Giovanni took the time to sit down with us and tell us all the wonderful places we had to see. We had plans to only stay 2 days in Naples... More

I agreed with all the comments about Giovanni the person. As per the place I did not like it at all. Bathrooms are uncomfortable. Beds clean but a funny smell. Mattresses not so good. I won't recommend this place, even though is my first time in a BB. So I really can't compare.

Staying with Giovanni is like staying with a favourite uncle. On arrival he sat us down, offered us lunch, and spent a good couple of hours mapping out the best and worst of Naples, giving honest advice on how to spend our time, and making us feel at home. He knows everybody's name, and will often cook for whoever wants... More

As I said, it is literally Giovanni's Home, run by Giovanni himself. When I arrived, he sat me down for about 15 minutes and told me about everything there is to see in Naples and surrounds (it made me want to stay longer than I could). He also provided helpful advice about the places to avoid (always a useful thing... More
