Me and my partner stayed here on our travels of Italy and it was one of the most memorable places of the entire trip. Giovanni is such a wonderful man weather its waking you in the morning for ESPRESSOOOOO or cooking Beautiful food in the evening. He genuinely care for all of his guests. I would recommend this place for anyone looking for homely friendly accommodation. apartment rooms and dorms available I stayed in both but would recommend the dorms if wanting to be part of the action!

The best part of my stay at Giovanni's was definitely the guy himself. We were greeted with pasta for lunch, and he takes the time to talk us through all the sites to see around Napoli - he's clearly really passionate that we all get to see the real Naples - as well as how to get around, great places to eat (and where not to eat too!) and some travelling safety tips too.

In the evenings, there's plenty of communal space around the hostel and we met some great people. Giovanni likes to spend a bit of time with people who are there, sometimes treating us with a bottle of wine.., and he always knows where we're all going in the day - he even called up a couple of the other people we met travelling to offer to cook lunch for them, because he knew they were near by!

Would I go back? - Definitely.

As the name suggests, Giovanni's hone really does make you feel at home. This is not a party hostel (in fact drunkenness is not allowed) but what you get is a host will give you his personal attention, all the help you need and even a cooking lesson on traditional pasta dishes. Definitely recommended for the traveller who is more interested in travelling than partying the night away

Very good location, nice hostel, clean and safe, easy to find. Giovanni is the best hostel owner you can imagine, knows everything about his amazing city. Hostel atmosphere is great, his food is unforgettable. Highly recommended.

I stayed at Giovanni's home 3 times in the last 3 years. It is definitely the best hostel (or I would rather call it a home away from home) I've ever stayed at. Perfect location, safe area, clean rooms and Giovanni is the greatest host ever! He introduces you his beautiful city, tells you all the information you need! He cooks the most delicious pasta you can imagine, and h
e is also a great singer and entertainer. Look no further, best hostel in Naples, no question about it. I will be back again and again.
