“Pretty nice place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

A hostel for people that really want to get deep in the heart of Naples!
The hostel is situated deep down in the heart of Naples, but walking distance to the historical center ( around 15 min) . Exactly out of the hostel you’ll understand the neapoletan culture… The main street it’s full of cars, scooters near spanish steps and really close to supermarkets, ITM, you have everything around.
After loosing yourself in crazy-full of life street of Naples, for sure you would a quite or chill atmosphere hostel! Here you’ll find the bar opened in the evening, you can relax, drink a beer in the garden…. But still… sometimes also here can get crazy! depends on you and your friends….

What could I expect more? Really original location. Was part of an old church, that had a lovely interior garden, nice facilities, big common areas, big rooms and confortable beds, welcoming staff.

Definetely if i visit naples, I'll stay here!

Room Tip: if you want a really nice sleep choose a bed of 4 or 6 beds, less people to share room with, better...

This is a fantastic hostel; the garden, bar, breakfast and staff were all wonderful. I stayed for 2 nights and wanted to stay a third but it was fully booked. Darsha, from Russia, was as helpful as she is beautiful - And that's pretty dam helpful ;-) She recommended walks and great places to see and I got a bargain beer upon arrival. I stayed the final night at the Hostel of the Sun but would recommend La Controra first.Thanks guys. Simon

What a fantastic place to stay, it really made my stay in Naples enjoyable. I made great friends with the staff and the social areas and bar were a great place to meet other people. A mix of all ages but mostly all young at heart. I really enjoyed the karaoke night and having its own bar was awesome. Definitely recommend staying here it will change the way you see Naples

Room Tip: All pretty good but if your a light sleeper maybe choose the 8 bed dorm as the 10 was next to a road

It was my very first time to stay in a hostel and after a 7-week stay, I have found that La Controra sets the bar pretty high for other hostels. From the moment you walk in, you are greeted by the very friendly staff who aren't just there to book your rooms but are also there to guide you through your whole Naples experience.

It is located near a metro station but is also not too far away from via Toledo where people go to shop or visit the historical center of the city. The rooms and bathrooms are clean and well-maintained. There is good breakfast every morning. There is a laundry area and a kitchen that is open to all. The wifi is fast. There is a vendo machine and a coffee machine as well. There are many common areas where people can just relax and talk to other travelers, one even has a piano that anyone can play at certain times of the day.

More than the amenities, the best part about this Hostel is the kind of environment it promotes. It's a great place to meet new and interesting people sharing travel stories. They even have weekly events by the bar such as movie night, art gallery, reggae night, etc. I really recommend this place!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Deep down in Naples, La Controra is a monastery transformed into a backpackers hostel. Better than a Stargate: La Controra with its garden is a place where you can relax yet right in the middle of the bustling town around you. La Controra's recently renewed rooms are decorated by art sculptures placed in the floor tiles featuring sea shells, Neapolitan coffee pots, garlic and chilli peppers, “ex-voto” and red coral horns (ethnic Neapolitan esoterica and good luck charms!). ... more   less
