Very close to the train station. On walking down the street I got the impression that it was really rough because of all the rubbish on the street but it turned out to be a clean hostel. The fella on the night shift appeared to be initially grumpy but he turned out to be very helpful , so first impressions are not always correct. The breakfast was good. Another plus for this place is that the tourist tax was included in the price as advertised because in Italy hostels try to add this stupid tax.
I have never complained about the location of a hostel until now. I refused to leave after dark. Even during the day I was nervous to walk down the street. Yes, it's close to Napoi Centrale, which is the only positive about the location, but everything else about the location was horrible. Other than that, the hostel was pretty basic. The wifi didn't work in the rooms, and the lockers only fit a certain type of lock. When asked if they had extra they didn't :(
Really helpful and friendly staff, immaculate kitchen and great breakfast. Only downside was the atmosphere, but that was probably just the weather and time of year!
The location is good because it's very close to a major train station/bus from the airport, but it's also a bad location because the neighbourhood is sketchy as, especially at night ! Although once you are up in the hostel you feel safe again, the complimentary sangria was amazing, the staff was informative, and it's easy to meet people in the kitchen. The Tupperware turtle in the tv room is a bonus :) aha
The outside mislead you, when I got in I got really impressed. Its such a comfortable place, they have a really nice common area and the rooms are excellent. The old man who runs the place is very helpful and friendly. The shower is good and internet works perfectly. The breakfast its OK, bread, cereals, coffee,tea, cookies and yogurt. I had a really nice time there, but the city is quite chaotic haha more hostels could be like this one!!
The manager Stefano was very helpful to all guests. He gave detailed information of how to get to the attractions and recommended places we should see and also good, inexpensive place to eat. The room was cleaned and mopped daily. The hostel is near the Napoli Central Station, about 12 minutes walk which is a plus.
