Great experience at Giovanni's Home! Giovanni was very welcoming and helped me plan my time in Naples. My last night there (which was also my last night in Italy), I asked for a recommendation of where to get my favorite pasta dish, but instead he made it for me! It was SO GOOD and totally unexpected. I'd definitely stay here again!

Giovanni is a great host. He is full of advices about visiting the city and its surroundings. The hostel is nice even though quite basic and there are few bathrooms and no lockers.

It's worth coming to Naples just to visit Giovanni's hostel. Seriously. Giovanni is wonderful. He's the sole operator of this tiny hostel, and he treats his guests like his family. When I arrived, he offered me pasta and then sat down with me for a full hour planning out my trip to Naples. Because of Giovanni, Naples is my favorite city in Italy.

Giovanni was an excellent host, like staying in his home. Cooked lunch (pasta or risotto) most days. Provided great suggestion of some time in Praia A Mare along the Calabrian Coast. Definitely worth the cheap 3 hour train ride. Passionate about Naples and its history. Best pizza shop around the corner.

Giovanni is sooooooooooo nice! He REALLY knows Naples. He will tell you EVERYTHING you need to know and you have ever thought of knowing. He trusted people, he gave us key to the gate and building. He cooked us amazing pastas for free. The location is great, right in the center of the classic old town. The hostel located on the top floor of the building, with incredible view of Naples. The bathroom facilities are very clean. He is such a cute old man.

Giovanni is an absolute angel; this was my second time staying with him and I had to come back for my new husband to meet him! The hostel feels like home; he may even cook something hearty and delicious for you! The vibe is always relaxed and comfortable. Giovanni gives you all of the insider information; Napoli is full of hidden gems besides being convenient for day trips out of the city. Absolutely recommend staying here, we will be back!

Giovanni has a great set up and this hostel is a must if you are going to Nales. Affordable, great facilitues and fantastic company. My stay in Naples would have been completely different without all the tips and information Giovanni provided and staying at his hostel was definitely one if the best decisions I made. If you're going to Naples, stay at Giovanni's Home!

Giovanni is a very welcoming and thoughtful host. He is passionate about sharing Naples with travelers and spends time with you explain the main sights. He was always helpful when you had a question. The location is good but the hostel itself is up several flights of large stairs.

Giovanni is as welcoming a host as you can ever find anywhere in the world. His introduction to Naples is definitely one you MUST experience - he can just go on and on, it is amazing! However, he can be a little intrusive, but not in an unfriendly manner. The facilities are simple, but comfortable enough for a short stay since you will most likely be out of your rooms mostly anyway. Brilliant launchpad from which to experience Naples!
