The staff were Incredibly friendly and helpful and I really had fun going out with on the first night. They offered some activities which were a bit pricey but still cheaper than other tours, only problem was the boat trip to Capri left from Sorrento! So getting there In time was a problem. Overall though, it was a good stay. If you want to visit Naples and surrounding towns I'd recommend this hostel.

i only booked the SUN for 2 days, but i stayed more the 1 week. The girls at reception are welcoming you on a so positive way that i felled at home in 10 secs. The free dinner evening is awesome dont mis that. I would say special thanks 2 Sabrina, Marika, Claire, the turkish girl ( i forgot her name ) Luca and the cleaning staff for a wonderfull start of my vacation.

Good location and nice staff. Good atmosphere, met nice people - Breakfast included is a plus Had to change bathrooms half way my shower once at the 2nd floor as hot water run out - not sure if it was a one off or I was unlucky. I forgot to mention to reception!

A difficult to find 7th floor of tower block which has an elevator which costs €0.10 each time. Incorrect directions made it hard to find - but once there we had a great introduction to Naples at check-in with some great local tips. Only there for one night - we had a great time in Naples and the hostel was good. Good wifi, breakfast ok and rooms are fine - nothing to shout about though.

Staff were so nice and welcoming and excellent with recommending things to do and directions. The hostel was really clean and well looked after. The free breakfast was really good and it was nice they offered free dinner twice a week and put up different events to attend on the blackboard, the walking tour is excellent and gives you a really good idea of what's around.

The welcome we received at this hostel was excellent. We were reccomended places to go, things to see, restaurants and bars within our first 15 minutes, all with a colour coded map, so handy. The staff were super friendly and knowledgable and one of my favourite activities was having a home cooked meal at Sabrinas family home, such a lovely way to spend an evening. Naples surprised me, it's a great gateway to Pompeii, Sorrento etc but don't overlook the city, go on the walking tour, it's fab!

Everyone at the Hostel were amazing, from the moment you enter the vibe was just how it should be. I can't speak highly enough about this place.

Simply the best hostel of my life, Everything is amazing: the staff, the rooms, the social areas, and the bathrooms - something really important in my opinion. The location is just perfect, really close to a metro station and to one of the main touristic spots of Naples. Just remember to carry 5 cents coins in your pocket for the lift, but once you're inside the hostel you'll be more than fine. The breakfast is really generous and sometimes they offer free dinner!

Biggest plus for us were the lovely staff who could not be more helpful but in a very relaxed and friendly manner.

This was definitely one of the best Hostels I have ever stayed in, it is on the 7th floor of the building, but it was totally worth it. The staff are wonderful, and the atmosphere is great as well! They recommended some great things to do in the city and were sooooo helpful and kind. I would stay here again in a heartbeat - my only regret is not staying longer!

Great vibe in this hostel, easy to meet likeminded travellers in the communal areas. The staff are also great and bring everyone together. The bedrooms are basic and clean - not special but everything you need.
