I stayed 7 nights. This hostel has excellent staff and one of the best internet networks of any hostel that I have stayed in with a nice garden. It is in a rundown area with no restaurants serving healthy food ( ie meat & vegetables) besides pizza within 1 1/2 km. After 3 days I was desperate and after 7... More

The staff were super helpful, the rooms, kitchen and bathrooms really clean and the hostel was close to a supermarket, metro station. The breakfast was good and they had some good deals at the bar. Really enjoyed my stay there and would recommend it to anyone!

I have been travelling quite a lot and so far this is definitely the best hostel I have been in. The staff is very friendly and they will help you with all your concerns. The free breakfast is a big plus. The staff is arranging some activities almost every night. During my stay in La Controra the football world cup... More

I was travelling to Italy for 12 days with a friend and Naples was our first place to stay at. I can honestly say having been in many hostels worldwide this is amongst the elite! The quality of the staff, rooms, food and atmosphere are worth it and some! I also loved they found me entertaining and offered me a... More

The inner garden is really nice. Salvator Rosa metrostation is close to the hostel, which is situated in a old neighbourhood. The breakfast could be... More

I really loved my stay here! It was such a nice place, with a nice garden to get some sun, a fun bar, and always something exciting going on! It's the perfect place to explore Naples from, and to come back to after a day out in the city. It was so clean, and the staff is the best!!! Everyone... More

the place is very clean, in a good location. It is an hostel so you need to be prepared (especially the showers and toilet areas are very small), but it is a very good choice if you are travelling on a budget. Breakfast is not special.

This hostel was in a good location and the bathrooms and bedrooms were clean. However, the pillows were not in the best condition and neither were the big blankets on the beds. The wi-fi did not work in the bedrooms, only the common room area. The staff were not partiularly helpful and could not aid us in finding a taxi... More
