Great staff with good recommendations on places to go and see. Good atmosphere for meeting people and not a bad location. AC, cleanliness, hot showers, working computers, good wifi and comfortable beds were all there. Breakfast was your typical hostel breakfast with some massive jars of Nutella..haha.
All the staff were extremely friendly and helpful, especially Valerio and Bernhard. Nothing was too much trouble, and gave great advice on places to visit and where to eat.
Staff are absolutely incredible and go above and beyond to help. The atmosphere is really nice, chilled and social. There is also a small bar which is nice and social.

This is the best hostel I've ever stayed at! The staff are so helpful and fun, it's in a pretty good spot to get to everything, everything was clean and the people were lovely! A great place to meet people, have fun, explore AND to relax! I'll be back!
Loved this hostel, the staff are amazing, on check in they provided us with loads of useful information, where to get the best gelato, the best pizza, coffee, you name it they knew it. They basically set us up with an itinerary for our time there. Rooms were clean and our beds were made each morning, it's the nice little touches that make this such a great hostel. So yeah, we really enjoyed our stay and would return.
Great staff, good free breakfast and fast internet! We were there for a stopover before hitting sorrento and the staff were lovely and pointed out some great things for us to do. Location is go the port which is slightly out of the way but much nicer than the city centre
The staff at this hostel are the nicest people I ever met at any hotel. Everybody is so friendly and helpful it is amazing. Keep up the great work!!!
The staff was so nice. They told us everything about the city..the best pizza..the best beach..best places to visit. They even helped me book my next hostel in ischia! They went above and beyond!! They're the best! Valerio is an awesome guy. The hostel has an awesome vibe! Definitely recommend it!
Unfortunately I lost my favorite T-shirt there. Moreover, the common living-room is just close to bedrooms, which makes us hard to fall asleep. However, some of the staff are very kind.
While this is probably the best hostel in Naples, it doesn't stand up to others in other cities with comparable ratings. The hostel was ultimately fine for what we needed but ideally you would just never visit Naples, then you don't need to find a place to stay. Seriously, this city is somehow Rome's dirtier inbred cousin. Just don't bother.
I definitely enjoyed my stay in this hostel! Very friendly, energetic, helpful staff made feel as if i am among friends whom i just havent seen for a while. Berry and Valerio, you are wonderful! Clean, safe place in brilliant location if you want to travel to islands, with nice breakfast - it was just what i needed during my stay in Naples. Guys, organisers of the hostel, you are doing a great job, thank you so much!
Most friendly and helpful staff on our trip so far. Would recommend to anyone. Thanks :) - Taylor n Matt
This is the best hostel in Naples! The rooms and bathrooms are clean and spacious (definitely important for a traveller). The staff are super friendly and helpful and will go out of their way to make sure your time in Naples is memorable. The common area is great to chill out, meet new friends and to chat about your travel adventures. The bar area is cool with cocktails made to your taste. One of my favourite hostels. Enjoy!!!!
Excellent hostel, an incredible staff that helped us get the most out of our stay in Naples. I strongly recomend the tour to Capri.
bit noisy at night. but very good staff!

Really vibrant, cheerful place, the atmosphere was great. Also had really friendly and helpful staff!
- : the building where is situated the hostel make you feel a little unsafe, the building is quite degraded, you feel it especially when you arrive. The welcoming is at the 7 stage, with a lift (5cent). + : good welcoming : map of the city with advice, staff very attentive, adaptable, nice activities proposed by the hostel : prices are fitted (free walking tour, horse riding on Vesuve, capri tour (70e)..), good breakfast, a bar with cheap drinks, beds are comfortable
It's my second time to come to the hostel and nothing changes- everything is good. But the music in the morning is too loud which just became a morning call.(I'm sleeping in the room beside the reception) The staff are super nice and I really enjoy staying there.
Great hostel- has it's own bar with live jazz and possibly the strongest cocktails in Italy, a chef who comes in and cooks for the guests and trips arranged through the hostel (I really recommend the Capri boat tour- well worth the money). The staff are every bit as friendly as all of the reviews claim and the place was really popular with single travellers- a good place to meet people.
Every future hostel has been ruined for me because this one was just so great. Exceptional staff. Great Atmosphere. Amazing place to be. They help you with everything. Will definitely be back.
