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!
Great atmosphere, rooms and bathrooms were really clean! Great common area to socialize :)
Great Hostel, a bit out of Naples, but Portici is a great area with very nice people. The hostel was great and the breakfast was the best we've had!
Really surprised by this little hostel. It's down a sketchy street, but the facilitates are clean and comfortable. Wifi only in lobby. Really nice woman at reception. An added touch: they provide a welcome booklet with tourist information. A nice quiet stay.

A sign board at the roundabout would do a whole lot of good for people arriving in naples for the first time. The wifi speed was average and can be improved.

Loved it here!!! Everyone is super friendly. It is very clean. It's easy to meet people. I would for sure stay here again
Worst hostel I have stayed in. It was constantly dirty, with beer bottles everywhere
In a suburb. Easy to get to pompeii with train. Luggage storage is in an unattended room which is easy available from outside. Rooms smell moldy. Receptionist was often missing. Ok for one night.
Great place to stay and explore the places around. I ended up staying for 2 weeks, not only because of the location but the fun atmosphere and helpful staff! The locals are great, the local food is as good as anywhere else and beer pong! One of the safest places I have stayed, the free locker is big enough to fit any bag you can put on your back. For 10 minutes out of the city, its an ideal stay, will definitely be back!
