The price is affordable and the staff is very friendly. Thye made me feel comfortable although I was travelling alone. The location is great. I recommend it to eager travellers. The staff helps you most willingly with indications and advice of all sorts. Ask about the Islands and beaches they will give you a good advise.

The whole experience of the hostel starts with their staff. We had just arrived for our one night stay, and the hostel is in this old-ish building and you have to go up this sketchy elevator. Understandably, we didn't have the greatest first impression, but the staff member that checked us in changed that instantaneously. Super nice, very energetic and... More

The staff is the best, you will feel like part of the family. Walking distance from the subway, great to meet new people. Really comfortable. Fair breakfast, lockers won't fit a 45L backpack. Nice kayak package, if you have a spare day make sure to try this.

Room was very spacious and clean. Location of Hostel is close to the Port and in walking distance of all major sites in Naples. Very close to metro station (university) which has a lift if you have heavy luggage. Wifi was free and worked very well in the room.

I just want to give an account of my experience as all the reviews I'd read prior to arriving at the hostel painted a very perfect picture. While the staff were very helpful and friendly, and the hostel may have been clean on the surface, it seemed a bit grimy to me. Napoli is a pretty grimy city but I... More

Really excellent experience. My friend and I shared a private room and bathroom, both of which were extremely clean and spacious. The hostel employees were so friendly and amazing--they came out to the balcony and talked with us while we had drinks on our first night there. Apparently some of the nights at the bar can be wild, but when... More

My wife and I are traveling around Europe and this was our first hostel ever! We were greeting by huge smiles, energy and enthusiasm for Naples. We got a complete tour of Naples on a map before ever leaving the hostel. They have a mini bar that is wonderful to chat and meet new people! Not to mention free dinners... More

Great for solo travellers and just generally meeting people whether you want a night out or a night in. Lorella, Marica and Marcello were so amazing and friendly! Would definitely stay here again, it made my stay in Naples all the more amazing!
