The staff was really helpful and nice. We checked in late at 8pm on Saturday and they were still there until 10. They also helped ordering pizza on the phone. But the wifi never worked in our room or even in the hall. The room didn't have a tv. They didn't provided toiletries. And the floor wasn't moped or vacuumed.

Loved it since I walked in, it's comfortable and it's got several common spaces to hang out. It's very organized and clean, and though it's very big, it doesn't have too many beds so it doesn't get too crowded. Nice music, welcoming atmosphere, willful and friendly staff.

Great place to stay ! It's a just a bit hard to find. But this is the only negative point. You can walk in 15 min to the centro storico ! If you're too lazy to walk the subway is just 200 meters away from the hostel. the staff is also very friendly and they have some really good hints... More

La Controra has all potential for being a really great place to stay, and mostly lives up to it. To start with the positives; The staff is all togehter lovely, helpful, quirky and funny - will help you out with anything from ordering espresso and pizza delivered to the hostel and providing you with all tips and tricks and must...

The staff is very welcoming and they give you great advise about where to go and the rules of the hostel. There is a wall of top places you should go and visit Naples. There is a big yard area, the bar, the kitchen, the computer room and lots of hostel dorms. Its a big hostel. I dont knkw if... More

Location is not great but there are easy connections available (metro and bus) within 100 meters, so it wasn't really a problem. Staff is VERY friendly and accommodating. The building is beautiful (an old monastery) and both the common areas and rooms are spacious and comfortable. The big added bonus is the beautiful garden in which to have breakfast and... More

We stayed there for 2 nights in a very large group. I stayed in a room with a few other guys and another guy who was not part of our group. Also there was another room next to ours and to get to it you had to walk through our room (room 6 and 7) which was quite weird. Overall... More

We really enjoyed our stay at La Controra. The room was nice and clean and the staff very friendly and helpful. Good atmosphere especially in the evenings, but nothing too noisy if you want to sleep early. Location is perfect, a little out of the centre which turned out to be really nice after a long day in the chaos... More

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
