Very average hostel. Wifi didn't really work, the bathrooms & showers were disgusting !! The rooms were ok, the air conditioner was incredibly strong leaving the room freezing. The outdoor area is lovey and dinner is basically free! The location is average, it's about a 25 minute walk to the center of town. All round Naples is pretty average.

Traveled solo in June. The hostel was decent but the best part was the staff who were so welcoming! They made my stay so great I came back in July! Highly recommend this hostel. Had the best time here. On my last night the hostel turned into a dancing hostel!

If you are travelling alone this is a great place to meet new people. The atmosphere and garden are nice. But it is really not worth the five star reviews it gets. Even for the money the rooms are not very big, and not very clean. The staff is very business minded and only friendly to some degree (0,50 cents... More

It is a little hard to find but once you have located it, it's a great place to stay. The staff are lovely and the building is really secure. It's a 10 minute walk to the centre of town! I found the rooms to be large (shared form of 6) and the bathroom very clean.

We only stayed here one night, very fleeting stay in Naples. Staff welcomed us with all the information about the city and hostel. We stayed in a 10bed dorm which was clean and pretty standard. Breakfast included and looked like evening activities were fun although we never took advantage of them. Great location too, I would return and recommend.

For Italy, the relation between price and quality of this hostel it's really good. Modern, clean, with a very nice and young staff, it's the best good looking hostel I ever been. It has a big garden, a place where you can socialize with other people and they always manage to create some events so people can meet each other.

We booked a room with three beds and got a room with a double and a single bed. That's not the end of the world, but is definetely something the hostel should specify during the booking process. We also had an ensuite bathroom, which was a bit useless at times, because our shower sometimes had no hot water, or no... More

I stayed at this hostel for 3 nights in May. The hostel is very close to a metro stations, so very accessible. The grounds/hostel: very clean, wide open spaces, lots of indoor or outdoor room to socialize or be alone. I was in a 4 person dorm. The room was very spacious, has a lovely balcony overlooking the courtyard, and... More

Amazing hostel located near the metro that just has a super chill and easygoing vibe about it. The staff is the best and they'll make you feel like you're staying with friends :) The patio area is so beautiful and relaxing, perfect for kicking back with some wine while chatting life away. I would definitely come back!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Deep down in Naples, La Controra is a monastery transformed into a backpackers hostel. Better than a Stargate: La Controra with its garden is a place where you can relax yet right in the middle of the bustling town around you. 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
