Giovanni's Home was one of the best hostels, which i ever visited! The atmospare is so great and It's very easy to get to know people. Honestly, it just felt so homelike. In Addition, Giovanni is an awesome host. He just cooked for us and gave us great tips. Moreover, Giovanni helped me when i was in Need.


The place provides a very friendly enviroment, which is expected from a hostel. The owner, Giovani, has everything well explaned, all the palces to go e how to get there, and he made pasta for us!! Without addicional costs!! Very easy to reach the subway from there, like a 5min' walk.


Best hostel I have been to! Giovanni is a legend, he provides really informatively and interesting information about Naples and is awesome in every way- helpful, funny and kind. It really feels like staying in someone's home. Would definitely absolutely recommend!!! Love spice girl :)


Giovanni is our favorite host ever!!! We had a lovely time in Giovanni's Home and we're missing him already! He is extremely hospitable and makes you feel at home - which was great after many weeks travelling. Also, he knows a lot about Napoli's history! Just follow his advices and you're gonna have a great time in this amazing city. Hope you liked the cachaça, Giovanni! Many hugs from Juliana and Luana =)


Stayed at Giovanni's for the second time and liked it again!

Giovanni has excellent knowledge about the history of Naples and what backpackers need to do and see in the area.


Giovanni was the most hospitable and generous hostel owner I have ever met. He was much more like family, than just the owner of the place where we stayed. He really made our trip and stay amazing! He cooking was also delicious!!


I had a great time there. and it was all because of the staff.. they totally made It up for the lack of facilities or a common zone.


We had a great time! Giovanni was a great host! We did not know there was so much to do in Naples and wish we had more time. We plan to go back to visit. The hostel was very safe, close to the metro and close to lots of sites. Giovanni will give you a path to follow to see everything and it was great. My sister even stepped on a sea urchin and he spent at least an hour helping her get the spikes out of her foot. He is so nice and knows a lot about Naples!


Going to Naples and not listening to all of Giovanni's stories is like being short-sighted an forgetting your glasses. The city lights up. The atmosphere at the hostel is perfect, easy to make friends. The location is as central as it gets. One of those places that you cannot miss!


Giovannis house is great. Never have we met a hostel owner as kind and caring as giovanni. He goes above and beyond so you can have the most enjoyable time in naples. He gives you a history of naples and shows you all the things the city and surrounding area has to offer. Love the home made pasta. Definitely recommend staying here.


They say on the website that you are lucky if you get some of Giovanni's pasta (which is delicious) but if you are really really lucky he will take you out on his motorbike :) thank you Giovanni!

Giovanni greeted us with open arms and gave us the most amazing introduction to Naples. We followed the itineraries he suggested saved money and had time to see a lot of wonderful places, so do what he says!


host is so nice! You can accept his sugestion for travelling! It is worth. He is very kind. But Bed is not good. So if you don't care facility, I recommand for you. If you are there late, You should tell the arriving time for host!
