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

Very welcoming and knowledgeable. Is happy to be involved in making your stay pleasant and introducing you to the real Naples. Clean linen and very safe. Great chef! Please heed Giovanni's advice on areas not to step into. I would recommend to students wanting to back pack through Italy as Giovanni does not tolerate bad/drunken behavior.

Giovani does not have a hostel only to make a living. The moment you walk into his place, he has already adopted you as his own. He is fiercely passionate about Neapolitain historical and cultural heritage, and will share this with you through detailed advice about where to go in the city. He will also share his cooking and will... More

I would say this is probably the best hostel experience that I have ever had. The environment was what made it so amazing. The hostel is actually Giovanni's flat, which made it feel incredibly homie. Giovanni was amazing - he is incredibly passionate and knowledgeable about Naples. On arriving, he sat us down and spent an hour and a half... More

Giovanni gives you a brief history of Naples when you arrive at his house and gives you a map showing you all the best places to go, where to eat, tours and churches to see around Naples. Originally when my friend and I got there we didn't think there would be much to do but we were so wrong! Giovanni... More

Giovanni's is the best hostel I've ever stayed in! There are only 3 rooms of 8 beds, so it makes it really easy to meet people and make friends. Giovanni does his best to make your stay amazing and really cares about his guests. He gives you so much insight of Naples. History of the city and what to do.... More
