I felt welcome from the moment I got here. After running around with baggage locating the place, Giovanni had a glass of water waiting for me, followed by a plate of pasta. I felt more like a friend than a guest. Giovanni gives an in depth orientation loaded with insight on must see sites in and around Napoli, including the best spots to eat. He has a lot of pride in his city, and for good reason. If you are visiting Napoli and don't want to get suckered by tourist traps, stay here!!

This is a great place. Giovanni is awesome and gives you a great introduction to the city, and a common feeling is that you booket too few days in Naples! The place is close to everything. I doubt you can find a better place in Naples, unless you're only after partying, which you shouldn't be - Naples has so much to offer, as Giovanni made me realize! He also makes great pasta.

Had a great stay at Giovanni's hostel. He's super friendly and great, made us pasta on first arrival which was super nice. Location is perfect walking distance to everything. Giovanni is a wealth of information and told us everything to do in Naples - stuff we never even heard about. Best stay.

Giovanni - you are an awesome host! We spent our first half hour in Naples with Giovanni as he described the attractions, recommended restaurants, and pizza places. He made us lunch and (correctly) informed us that "This is the best risotto you will have." Travellers - when you decide you are travelling to Naples, intend to spend a minimum of 2-3 days in Naples and stay with Giovanni!! Giovanni is proud of Naples, and wants you to see his city through the eyes of a local person.

Giovanni is very passionate about Naples and loves meeting travelers and sharing his city with them. He gives decent advice on what to see, though maybe too much because I really wanted to explore Capri and the blue grotto but couldn't due to lack of time.

Staying at Giovanni's was an integral part of a fantastic trip to Naples. I didn't feel as though I were staying at a hostel, but with a friend - if only all my friends made delicious Italian food and the best coffee ever. :) Giovanni makes everybody feel so at home and is such a fantastic, caring person. Even a month later, I still miss it and feel like I would like to go back!

Definitely one of the best hostel experiences I've had in six months of solid traveling. Giovanni is the best host! He loves to share Naples with his guests and will sit you down with a map upon arrival and tell you everywhere you should go. He also cooks almost every day, so you're often treated to homemade gnocchi, risotto, and pasta. Don't come here if all you want is to party; it's a home away from home where you're encouraged to have a great time, while respecting your fellow travelers.

Giovanni is amazing. Know everythingg about Naples and u could tell how much he loves this place. He'll give everyone a thorough introduction about Naples and good suggestions on how to plan your route. He's so friendly and helpful! And saved me a plate of pasta when i arrived late at night, starving. He'll call everyone by their names which make it feels like home:)
