Giovanni's home might not be the modern, boutique like hostel, but he makes you feel like home. You might be curious what kind of hostel did you book after walking up three level stairs, but Giovanni will welcome you with things to do and to see in Napoli with a bit Italian history, which makes you fall in love with Napoli immediately. Greeting and care from Giovanni warm your hearts especially we were so lucky that Giovanni treated us with Buffalo mozzarella and his home-made pasta!

Giovanni is amazing. He is super nice, helpful, and always looking out for his guests. He gives you a map of sites to do, suggestions of what to do, and if you're lucky he'll even make you a delicious lunch. Rooms are a little cramped but this was an amazing place. Would definitely come back to him. Amazing value.

Great atmosphere here, loved the outdoor area. Giovanni goes the extra mile to let you know about all the best his beloved Napoli has to offer, just dont feel pressured to do it all! The homemade pasta and risotto was incredible and really made it feel like you are staying at Giovanni's home. Facilities are good and clean, he will even give you a towel if you need.

Giovanni was a wonderful host! His passion for the city is so clear to see. He was warm, welcoming and gives a lot of good advice on where to visit, where to eat etc. The hostel itself was very nice, in a typical apartment building in the centre of Naples. From my experience of staying with Giovanni, I can safely say it is the only place I would stay when returning to Naples.

Giovanni was an excellent host, so passionate about Naples. I loved his pizza recommendation... much better than the most "touristy" pizza place. The kitchen is large and the facilities were clean with a beautiful terrace outside to relax. The place is 4 flights of stairs up (which helps with all the pizza we ate) but if you have heavy baggage - just a warning. Giovanni was very helpful about any plans you needed to make.

I would definitely recommend staying here, great central location, good value for money, great chilled out atmosphere and really good for meeting people. Perhaps the best part is the host Giovanni, he treats you like family, is always willing to help, cooks lovely authentic food for you on occasion and tells you all the best places to go in Naples. His love for his city and the hostel really do make it. Best hostel we've stayed in so far.

Giovanni is a great person. He treats the people as his own guests and not just customers. He can give you all the information that you need and much more than you wanted to know :)

It's a very nice hostel. First thing that happens when you arrive is Giovanni will give you a long lesson about Naples. Make sure to listen, he will tell you everything there is to do and what makes Naples unique. The location is a bit sketchy looking, but the hostel itself is secure. It also happens to be a block away from the best pizza restaurant in the world. Give Naples itself a try and stay at Giovanni's.

Enjoyed our stay here. Giovanni is very helpful and will give you lots of information on what to see in Napoli. One of our bags broke as we were packing to leave, so Giovanni gave us an old holdall of his to use. Thank you, Giovanni :)
