I stayed here for 1 night during the week in June 2012 - I arrived a early for a group trip and had a night to kill in Naples. The rate (28.50Euros for a single, ensuite room) was fantastic though I wasn't expecting much after reading these reviews.
I was pleasantly surprised - this is a basic but thoroughly adequate hostel immediately 2 minutes walk (uphill) from the metro station. It's a huge building that would suit large groups. Rooms are spartan but clean with hot showers. My room had a bunk bed and a window from which I could see the water. I rented a clean towel for 3Euros and had a basic but filling meal (spaghetti, salad, drink) for 8.50 in the cafeteria. Wifi didn't work for me and I missed breakfast - so sorry, nothing to add there.
Positives: Really cheap. Easy to get to on public transit. All the basics covered. Quick walk to the marina for gelato.
Negatives: You walk through a slightly sketchy tunnel to get here from the metro station (note: there's an easier way, but you won't find it your first time) - so i would not recommend women travelling alone (like me) try to get there on foot after dark. Wifi didn't work. On a hot night, with no fan/breeze, the bedrooms can get pretty stuffy and hot.
