Extremely clean hostel. Good location and facilities. Extremely helpful, informative staff. The hostel lacks the atmosphere many backpackers are after, although the hostel has the potential to improve this. I would definitely stay at fabric again.


The wifi doesn't work really well. So you have to go on the very outdated computer. There are two computers but one of them doesn't work. The breakfeast for 3€ is ok. It's a good hostel near a market. There is no kitchen but a fridge and a micro-wave.


They arranged a taxi to pick us up from the airport on arrival. This was brilliant!

I stayed in all kinds of hostels all over europe, and this was one of the worst. in two words: BED BUGS!! and if that's not bad enough, the location is also not ideal. not recommended.

the bathrooms on our floor were not so great - shower worked properly only in 1 stall, out of 3 toilets the light was working only in 1, they were clean though, which is a plus. wi-fi connection was not the best and available only on the common room. also, it was very hot in the room, even with the open window, and the ventilation was very poor.


Great hostel. Staff was really nice and helpful. The location is really convenient for day trips to Pompeii, Sorrento, Naples downtown and is only a 20 minute walk to Herculaneum. Some kind of air conditioning would really help though especially in the upstairs loft part if the rooms it was really hot when I stayed there


Great facilities and atmosphere. Little mini-fans are a great addition to each bed. Portici isn't exactly the most amazing town, but nicely located inbetween Pompeii and Naples.


Watch out for the front stone stairs leading into the place. They had just been washed and are like ice when wet. I hurt myself badly. Other than the stairs, a good spot for backpackers


I meet three people from the reception. Two were rude and one, Francesca, was amazingly nice and hard working. What is good about this hostel is that it's close to a station of the Circumvesuviana, it means that it's pretty easy to go to Ercolano, Pompei, Napoli, Sorrento, etc. Also the hostel is close to nice cafes and bars.


One of the best hostels, for the best price. Close to Vesuvius and Pompeii. Closer to Sorento and the Amalfi Coast than hostels in the Center. Highly recommend. Rember that public transport gets tricky after 9:30, so get back to Portici earlier than that.


It is a very nice hostel with a good atmosphere. Everything is very clean and the room was perfect. People at the reception are very nice and they want to help you with everything you ask them. You have to notice that you are not in the city of napoli but you are staying in Portici that is 15 min with the metro. But we liked it to stay here because everything was perfect and when you want to go to Pompei it is in the middle between Napoli and Pompei :)


Great hostel to stay at with excellent facilities, would definitely recommend. Only thing was it was a while out of the centre of Naples, but easy enough to get to on the Metro. Also the walk from the train station to the hostel is LONG especially with packs on... if you think you've missed it, don't worry, just keep walking!


A good hostel. It was really quiet here which can be nice however didn't really get to know anybody. Also there didn't seem to be a main light in the shared dorms, it was a nightmare coming in at night and scrabbling for the bedside light switch. Good value for money.


Had a great time here. All the rooms have ample locker room and enough sockets for everyone. Showers are communal but are in decent condition and the staff were super helpful. Beer is also super cheap! Only downside was the location but the price and atmosphere more than made up for the short trip into Naples city centre. Would definitely stay here again.


Good atmosphere in common room, clean rooms, and staff were helpful. Our dorm was very hot in the night and the tiny fans provided made no difference. Shower left little to the imagination with small cubicles and only frosted glass to hide behind.


Far from Naples but we were just there to see Pompeii. The metro is very irregular and we ended up sitting there like an hour before a train came everytime I suggest staying closer to the centrale station


The staff at the hostel is very nice. I love it that the hostel has a small guidebook for things to see, do and eat in Naples, Portici and surrounding areas. The gelato shop recommended by the hostel is really very good, so please do try it out! The rooms are huge, although they may be very hot and stuffy during summer nights (there's a small fan attached on the wall beside every bed but it isn't much help).


Far away from the city and the city has bad transport options


Had a great time! Super close to many sites such as Pompeii and Herculaneum and was very cheap and clean!
