The best thing about it is Giovanni himself.. and the athmosphere he creats and the small introduction he gives about Naples when you first arrives and he also gives some tips and recommendations, the community there is international and friendly too

We had high expectations from Giovanni having heard what a great host he is and he exceeded our expectations and made our stay the absolute best. Aside from the amazing food he cooked us at no extra charge, he fostered an environment that made the other residents feel like family. The location of the hostel was perfect for seeing the... More

From the moment we walked through the door Giovanni did not stop being amazing. He greeted us with a cup of cold water and sat us down. The first thing he asked us was whether we had eaten lunch. When we told him we had not, he swiftly offered to make us some pasta. He made pasta for about 8... More

Upon arrival, Giovanni cooked all of us some delicious pasta and followed with an hour long talk about Naples. Be prepared that he gives the talk for an hour to everyone so we wasted a lot of the day with this. Perhaps the talk could be a quick 10 mins with room for questions. The map he gives is also...

Giovanni is the best host! He has so much information about what to do in Naples, he gives you a very helpful map and so much useful information about the city. We arrived quite late and did not have time for dinner, so Giovanni made us and some other guests an absolutely massive bowl of fresh pasta which was a... More

My prepaid hostel had essentially "forgotten" about my booking and consequently was fully booked, but Giovanni was able to give me a bed for 2 nights on very short notice and whilst I'd been in Naples for 5days already I still got the introduction to the city and I wished I'd booked here originally!! It's small, central and cheap oh... More

I stayed at Giovanni's almost exactly 12 months ago, and I miss it to this day. Giovanni is the most accommodating, informative, funny host you can encounter. Although I normally look for a party hostel (which this is not) I would gladly stay again. Make sure you pay attention to your welcome information session, he will hook you up with... More

Giovanni is not just a hostel owner but an experience in himself! From his indepth prep talk about the city and its history on arrival to his fantastic free meals and mini cooking lessons, the man behind this hostel will make anyone's stay in Naples outstanding and worth while! The hostel has a great communal area and extensive kitchen so... More
