  • Hostelworld Guests Say

    Fantastic hostel and if you want a traditional/stereotypical Italian host, Giovanni fits the character perfectly. If you are a foodie or just someone that loves food, the hostel is located near this market place where it sells everything from cheap brand name knock-offs to the world's best pizza (best pizza in Napoli = best pizza in the world = Gino's). There is no breakfast provided, but Giovanni usually make dinners every night and he'll help you out whenver you need it.

    Giovanni was extremely helpful and really nice. He had lots of useful information to share about Naples (though he was a bit opinionated). The hostel felt really safe as well. Giovanni even cooked us pasta one day for lunch which was excellent. The hostel is situated pretty much in the heart of the city, with lots to do in any direction. In the future we would definitely definitely stay again, especially for the price and Giovanni himself.
