Me and my girlfriend spent pleasant days in Naples. We really felt in Giovanni's home. He gave us good tips about the city and all of Campania. Despite the rainy days, we walked around town, visited interesting places (like vesuvio and pompeii) and ate great food. By the way, Giovanni also cooks very well! Otherwise, the hostel is clean, quiet and well located. Hope to return in the future!

Giovanni is hilarious! Make sure you ask him how to say yes and no in Calabrian. This isn't a traditional 'hostel'! You are literally living inside Giovanni's functional apartment with an absolutely amazing terrace. The place has very few beds which means you have a chance to chat with everyone else staying there. The hostel is also very well located and only a short stroll from major sights. Napoli was my favourite city out of a 3 month trip so if you're thinking about going, stay with Giovanni

first, I should tell thanks to Giovanni that let me have really good trip in Napoli. He explained so many information about Napoli, and I believe that make our trip more special. I don't really find any bad things in hostel. if they have breakfast it would be better. but I'm sure that totally worthy to Giovanni's house.

Giovanni is the perfect host. He loves his city and cares about his guests. He makes tasty pasta forno and plays the guitar very well. Will return to this city and this hostel :)

Not only his place, but Giovanni himself has been a great choice for me to know Napoli much more than I would if I didn t stay there. An authentic napolitanean apartment, very well located, made me feel a local during my staying. Helpful to his guests in many ways, Giovanni is an ambassador of Napoli who knows and loves the South of Italy better than anyone. Also, he encourage people to know each other during their staying there. The place has 4 toilettes, 2 of which are bathrooms.

Giovanni is a proud local. Who strives for his guests to go out see the real Naples. Go to the pizza shop he recommends as it is hands down the best pizza in Italy. No security boxes which makes it all a little awkward but alround pretty decent place

It is the best hostel i have been to. An incredible atmosphere, but most of all the most perfect owner ever. Giovanni was incredibly helpful, kind and most loving person. The information was great and he cooked for us almost every day, because he really enjoys cooking incredible Italian food. I loved it. Thank you Giovanni!!

Staying with Giovanni was truly a home away from home. In the purest Neapolitan spirit, Giovanni welcomed us as though we were family and treated us to a level of hospitality that we didn't think was possible at a hostel! He sat us down on night 1, and showed us all the important sites to see around Napoli - many of which we'd have never known about had we not come here. He's the best tour guide and warmest host you'll find. If you want to have an authentic Napoli experience, look no further!

This is definitely the best hostel I have ever lived in! Everything about the hostel is great with host -Giovanni, who is a kind and knowledgeable man. I know a lot about Naples' history, attractions, fun places from Giovanni's introduction. If you want to travel around Italy, be sure that you went to Naples first and stay here at least 3 days. And you should choose Giovanni's home because the host can provide nearly everything you need! If you are lucky, you can enjoy the meal cooked by the hos

This is a great little hostel in Naples, Giovanni is what makes this hostel so great and the atmosphere he creates here is what keeps travellers coming back. It is in a good location and is small and cozy so you feel at home right away. Although it may not be the newest and cleanest hostel, the atmosphere is what makes it. Definitely a good place for people who are wanting to explore naples and come back to a comfortable and quiet hostel.

Giovanni, the owner and sole employee of the hostel, immediately treated me like family upon arrival. His passion for Napoli made my trip one to remember. He has infinite knowledge of the area and the rest of Italy, a great sense of humor, and will even cook classic Italian food for you, if you're nice. The hostel has a nice common area, kitchen, balcony, and a guitar and piano too if you enjoy playing music, which was an extra bonus for me. Highly recommended. Thanks, Giovanni!
