Be careful to read the fine print here if you think you will be getting a pool / spa included in the price. The pool will cost you $15 euro, and the spa / sauna will cost a separate $15 euro. If you want them both, it will cost you $25 euro. We bit the bullet and did both, it was fairly nice, however the spa pool temperature was not that hot and they were not able to increase it.
Also note that the restaurant on the top level is closed on Mondays (this happened to be the day we wanted to go up), and also likely to be very expensive.
Wifi will also cost you $3 euro for 30 minutes so don't expect this to be free either (unlike most hostels).
The area is also in a strip of restaurants, but nothing else is there and quite a stretch from the "real naples". You need to get a $10-$12 euro taxi to get to the hotel from the main station as there is no public transport in walking distance.
