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

This is definitely the most welcoming hostel I've ever stayed in. Giovanni was so helpful with info about Naples and the surrounding area and loads of tips for making the most out of your trip. The hostel has a great atmosphere, there's a terrace and a common room where you can hang out with people. The facilities were great and... More

I’m 44 and I have never stayed in a hostel before as I don’t normally travel on my own, and to be honest I was a little concerned, but it would appear I picked a good one to stay in. Comfortable, clean and with adequate facilities; kitchen, bathrooms, wifi - what more do you need. It’s in a great location,... More

This is the best hostel I have ever stayed at. Giovanni is so incredibly welcoming and makes you feel like you are a part of his family during your stay. He has incredible knowledge of the city and can give amazing insights on the best sights as well as important transport info. I would recommend coming to Naples and staying... More

The place... More

This hostel is the friendliest I have ever stayed in. Giovanni is a great host. He spends about an hour with you going through the sites in Naples and the best way to see them. He was also a great source of information on how to get to sites such as Pompeii and ercolaneum. He also cooked a free pasta... More

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
