A really nice hostel with absolutely great staff! They helped in every occasion and gave really nice tips what to do in the city. The rooms were spacious, very clean and comfortable. The common areas are nice to hang out and get in contact with other travelers. Breakfast is included in the price, and for me it was perfect start... More

We were staying in a dorm in the new building so it was very modern, nice bathrooms. Staff are very friendly and suggested loads of things to do in and outside of Naples. Mainly a hostel for young travellers.

We stayed for a couple of nights here in July. The staff is really friendly, and they suggested a lot of places to see, what restaurants to go to and where to get coffee. The room was clean and nice, they had a laundry service (which we really needed when we arrived). Our room was located upstairs, right next to... More

The hostel is full of Young travellers from all over the world, which meet in the internal garden while sharing a beer or a pizza. The rooms are wide and air conditioned, with bunk beds with clean sheets provided and boxes for the backpacks. Wifi was fast and well working. The toilets were quite clean, even if it is an... More

I've stayed at La Controra two times now and I have to say that it really is a fine hostel and the best one that I have stayed in during trips to Napoli. I think that the minimum that you look for in a hostel are that it is clean and safe. La Controra is both of these and more.... More
