“Lovely hostel ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

My first stop on my trip around Central Europe and pleasantly surprised! We stayed in a 10 bed mixed dorm all beds had own plug socket and light. Big kitchen & common areas & bar and seating area outside and a washer and dryer. Free breakfast in the morning. Very helpful and friendly staff everything you could need from a hostel

Stayed June 2014

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 was going, so they were showing almost all the games in a big screen. The garden is a really nice place to just relax or have fun with the other people in the hostel. During the night you don't need to leave the hostel to have some drinks, because they have their own bar inside the hostel! Easy to get there by metro, from the main train station.

I was travelling to Italy for 12 days with a friend and Naples was our first place to stay at. I can honestly say having been in many hostels worldwide this is amongst the elite! 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 job! But seriously the stay was great, i met so many people and had such great experiences, the only thing they missed out was paying me for this review!!! I highly reccomend staying at La Controra in naples.

We stayed with a student group (29 people) in La Controra for four nights. In prepartion Mugurela and her team were very helpful in planning our trip. The bedrooms are clean and everyone slept well. 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 extensive with some better coffee, but was sufficient. We really enjoyed our stay at La Controra!

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 is very friendly and helpful, they really made my stay great :) I'll be going back for sure!

the place is very clean, in a good location. It is an hostel so you need to be prepared (especially the showers and toilet areas are very small), but it is a very good choice if you are travelling on a budget. Breakfast is not special.

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
