I had a lovely stay, the manager and staff go out of their way to provide the best possible experience for guests staying. It was a delight to be there. Other guests were very friendly and the small bar was full with a variety of nationalities, sharing travel tips whilst sipping on cocktails made by the fabulous Brazilian barmaid. I really enjoyed both Napoli and the hostel.

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.

One of the best hostels ever! The staff were so friendly and helpful. I arrived needing to find a cycle shop for spare parts for my bike - everyone so kind phoning for me and helping me to sort out the problem. I went to stay with a friend on the Amalfi coast - again, very helpful regarding leaving my stuff with them. There is a lovely atmosphere, the breakfasts are good and the rooms are clean and comfortable.

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

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.

Dear "friend", We really did our best to make your trip. We book tickets, make phonecalls, book taxis, cook for you, wash for you all the dishes you left around... And you punish us, giving such a low rating because YOU have lost your t shirt? I mean we can be responsible for the things in the lockers but not for the one you forget around. It's customers like you that makes this job harder and harder every day. it makes our effort useless, and our life i have to say a little more sad. xie xie. V

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.

Wow man! You are better than rick stevens my friend. Naples has just been elected by this website as one of the 5 most beautiful and underrated cities of the world. I am sorry here we have no mc donald, but the best pizza, no sturbucks but true coffee, is it possible you did not like a single hostel during your holiday? (please people check his other reviews). If you travel to do the same thing you do at home, maybe you should not even bother travelling, do something stay home next time. hugs! V
