Giovanni is a lovely host; as soon as we arrived he started explaining about Napoli and gave us tips on where to visit; he also cooked lunch for us. Bedroom is value for money and well air-conditioned; there is also very nice terrace. Location is excellent; right in the old centre.

Good hostel to make visit. Giovanni is helpfull, as a father (he made pastas for everybody few times !), he explains fully the history of the city. I advice to complete them by a guide book to have infos about around the city. Terace is pleasant and atmosphere very friendly. But be carefull, you can't make any noise on it, spirituous are forbiden and the hostel don't want to give informations about the nightlife. So, the perfect hostel to wake up early and visit, but not to party.

Giovanni was the most helpful host of all time. He's so knowledgeable about the city and you can tell he really loves it. On arrival, he gives you a huge overview of Napoli and all the surrounding areas and things to do; a full eight day itinerary, basically. If you're lucky, he'll cook up some pasta for you too. Wonderful host, wonderful hostel. Will be coming back for sure!

We had a great stay at Giovanni's home! Everything was great and he even made us lunch. Also upon check in he shares everything to see in Naple's. This was very helpful because we had originally planned to only see Pompeii and were able to see so much more!

Great host home! Giovanni is fantastic, and extremely helpful. A bundle of laughs, and extremely welcoming. He made us food and told us where the best places to eat are and even got discounts for us where he could. He performed for us at one point with his guitar and harmonica! Such a fun and value for money stay, highly recommended!

We absolutely loved our stay with Giovanni. He taught us so much about Naples that we never knew and was really clued up about the best places to go in the city. I had no idea how much there was to do within the city and in the area and could have easily spent more time there without running out of places to visit! He is a very caring host and if you are lucky you will get to experience his amazing italian cooking! We even had a little music show one night. We will definitely miss this hostel!

If you went to Naples and didn't stay here you really missed out.

Everything was great at this hostel! It really had the feel of a home rather than a business. That and Giovanni himself was such a kind man, between offering me tea when I wasn't feeling too hot, letting me do my laundry, the pasta lunches, or even just sitting us down and telling us where the great places to go were, I wouldnt want to have chosen a different place to stay!

Giovanni is a brilliant, brilliant host. He knows so much about naples and will give you as much information as you need/want. He's also great to chat to and cannot offer you enough hospitality (he even gave me a cheeky ride to the airport on his motorcycle). Definitely stay here!

Loved my stay at Giovanni's home. Giovanni is incredibly passionate about Naples and gives you a great introduction into the city's history, best walking routes, food and culture! I really appreciate all the effort he goes to in order to ensure his guests have a great time in Naples. Location is excellent, right in the middle of the old town and around the corner from all the best eating spots. Hostel is small and cosy and the common room is utilised by guests so very easy to meet people.

DO NOT STAY ANYWHERE ELSE in Napoli, please. As a solo traveller, I had a fantastic time here. Welcomed and treated like family, atmosphere enabled me to meet so many people but still keep privacy. Relaxing terrace, comfortable beds and showers always hot, AC always on. Giovanni isn't operating a business as much as he enjoys what he does and was extremely generous and kind to everyone. He doesnt cut corners when it comes to costs so you will have a clean, safe stay that feels like home!!

Giovanni is the kindest, most helpful hostel operator I have encountered! Small number of beds offers a quiet, friendly environment. Large indoor lounge area, plus a beautiful, enormous patio. Air conditioned(!!!). Located in an interesting neighborhood, close to archaeological museum, Duomo, and countless astounding, famous works of art. Listen to Giovanni's recommendations! Follow the orange line on the map! See the Cristo Velato, it's right down the street! Thanks for a great stay!

hostel is not the most modern but it feels confy and you really feel like home plus Giovanni is the best. Like a day away from home. Only tip : do not plan all your days before as Giovanni has plenty of little site he likes to share and worth the visit. ;) thanks for the holidays Giovanni, we really enjoyed our stay at your home From Deborah and Aurelie

Giovanni was helpful but often judgemental and rude. The place was clean but everything was old. Weird bathrooms and no toilet seats. No signage to help find the place either.
