“Love it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 5 days ago NEW

As much as i didnt love Naples I loved this hostel :D Staff was very friendly and welcoming, showed mi interesting places. Everything was clean, i had privacy although i stayed in room with 10 beds. Wifi didnt work on the room, but worked very well in common rooms. I appreciated bar and met great people in the garden :) Hostel was (for me) in walking distance to the most of the attractions and few meters to metro. Breafast allright (toasts, jams, musli, fruit). If i ever get back to Naples I am definitely staying there!

I've been here 5 days and was a really incredible experience, wonderful garden, really clean rooms and baths, amazing staff, anna, alessandro and gianmaria are the best, we spent time also outside the hostel and they showed me the best place in Naples. Absolutely perfect!

This hostel was the best! The staff were very friendly and helpful, the rooms were cleaned every day, and the location is great! We made Napoli our base stay to go to Pompeii, Vesuvius, Positano, and Sorrento. This place was perfect for going to all of those places! 5 minute walk to the metro that can get you to all of these places. There is a kitchen that provides you with everything you need, a free breakfast every morning, and a 24 hour reception! This place is actually pretty big and I loved the outdoor places to sit and relax! Overall great experience and I would come back here in a heart beat and recommend it to every traveler I come across! Thanks guys!

Spent 3days there, its close to the center (14minute walk).
Members of the staff were professional.
The bathrooms and rooms were really clean.
The garden and common room provides a nice place to hanging and relax.

Clean, extremely friendly and helpful staff, good location, excellent dorms, lockers were a little difficult to manage with common padlock, highly recommend it to anyone traveling in the area. Breakfast wasn't bad, courtyard was lovely. Close to a metro stop.
