The Controra is one of those places that give hostels their "lettres de noblesse". It has everything an hostel should have (and so few of them have) : - a friendly, helpful and relaxed staff ; - excellent common areas (nice kitchen, wonderful terrace and cool bar with a piano); - above all, the vibes are great!! It's definitely a... More

I stayed at La Controra Hostel in Naples in the summer of 2014 for four nights and had a great time there. Close to metro and still hidden away from the busy streets. Couzy and with breakfast included where all the residents met up around one big table and made plans for daily excursions. The bar has open access to... More

I only stayed here 1 night, but I would recommend this hostel. The rooms are comfortable and spacious, and the bathrooms are always clean. The water from the showers is warm and good pressure. Its really easy to find, literally 2 minutes walk from the metro stop. You can also walk into the centro storico if you like, but I... More

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

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
