Finally a proper free breakfast! All-in-all, I really enjoyed my stay here. Albeit security was an issue for me (no lockers, room door doesn't lock) so I locked my bag to the bed and made sure I took all my valuables with me. Close to Dante Metro. The english direction on the confirmation email need to be improved, but we found the place. *once you arrive at Dante, exit the station and go right (up the main road) and it's literally 3mins on that road.


Brilliant location near the metro and just outside the old city.


The hostel was easy to meet people.


Quite possibly the worse place I've ever laid my head to rest. Bypass Naples & head to Sorrento or Positano

I loved staying here! The manager was amazing, always ready to help, give suggestions and had a smile on his face! The other staff were great too! It was clean, AIR CON, and a pleasant atmosphere. One bathroom poses as a problem at times but most people accommodate the needs. Breakfast was authentic Italian and delicious!

A nice hostel with wonderful location just at the edge of the Old Town. Half an hour walk to railway station through nice historical streets, Archaeological museum just in 2 minutes. Clean, with good air conditioning (crucial!) and wifi. Disadvantages: no locks on the doors of the rooms, a tiny public space, no kitchen.


The location is excellent, makes it very worthwhile staying here.


Cool old building but no kitchen. No common rooms. Nowhere to wash clothes. My 4 bed room changed to a 6 without warning. My bathroom had no toilet seat. The owner would come in and turf off the air con all the time aswell.

Stayed here for one night. The area seems a bit dodgy but I didn't mind it too much, though females travelling on their own might. The staff were friendly and helpful though their English wasn't quite fluent. I noticed a few random men came and sat in the hostel common area before I left in the morning. I assume this is a regular thing.


All the reviews already said it, but the rooms did not lock and there was no locker. The shower was mostly cold water, very rare to have hot water. The beds were not really confortable. On the plus side the location was okay, a bit sketchy at night, but Naples is kind of sketchy at night. Also the staff was really nice and helpful.


Absolutely loved my time here. Great hostel. Excellent staff, who when above and beyond to me out. I will never forget this place! Highly recommend if you are ever in Naples!


The Hostel was nice and enjoyable, the only thing I have to complain about is the fact that rooms doors can't be locked and there is a guy who always enters the rooms, looks at you and leaves, really weird and kind of insecure. One night he even stayed in my room and slept there. The guy that is in charge of the checkout is really rude, he told me I couldn't leave the bags and told me to leave because he had to work. Bathrooms could be more clean. Overall it was a good stay


staff is really nice here, gave a lots travel suggestions to us. very clean room.


I found this area much safer than other hostels near the main train station, lots of restaurants nearby.


Although it's very difficult to find, the staff was very helpful in giving advice as to how to spend our time there.


We booked a twin room at the art hostel and get a double at the locanda del Arte (same owners)... and it was quite problematic for us (not a couple nor friends) but nothing could be made. The room was small but ok, the bed was really bad (we could feel every spring of the mattress) and the shower was not exactly clean (hairs, limescale and some mould). Otherwise, the beakfast was good, the situation nice too and it was noisy but that is probably the case in a lot of places in Napoli.

The doors to the rooms should require the key to enter them.


3min walk from Dante station. ADVICE: after you get buzzed in, walk straight through the courtyard and take the elevator/stairs to level 2. This is where you check in but possibly not where you will sleep. Rooms have no lock and no lockers. No wifi in our room. The "common area" was a table with a TV and wooden bench. You do get a free breakfast (pastry and coffee). Not all beds have access to power outlets. Weirdest part, the guy that checks you in (speaks minimal English) also sleeps in hostel


The hostel location was good, close to the metro and along one of the main streets in Naples. The room was very nice and the staff was helpful when we needed to make a call to a local tour company. The breakfast was good and you get a 20 percent discount at the restaurant which we used multiple times.


I booked this hostel last minute at I was passing through Naples. I was pleasantly surprised! I stayed in a dorm with 6 beds and met 3 other friendly travelers. The hostel is located in a prime location to walk around but is also very peaceful at night. In the morning you can go to a little restaurant around the corner for a free cappuccino and pastry. Should I ever find myself in Naples again I would definitely stay there!
