Great hostel, would recommend.


Staff were amazing. Our trip to Naples would have been so much harder without them We went straight there after getting of the train and they gave us a map and all the information we needed to get around - including lunch recommendations. We had a double room with ensuite which was beautiful and clean. Everything was provided and we even had a balcony. Breakfast was also included which made a nice start to our day. Staying there was a great decision and would do it again.

This was a great hostel. Love the friendly atmosphere and the free dinner! Would definitely stay here again if I return to Italy.


One of the best hostel! They organized stuff, like they cooked a napolitanese meal for freeea ans more !! A must go!


Booked a Twin Bed room for 2 nights. Room had an extra bed although we did not book it, probably just logistic detail. But when we back on our 2nd day we suddendly had 2 extra beds in our room. This made the room very small. I understand that there are some logistic details but downgraded the value of the room for us. Next to that, staff was helpful, breakfast and location were okay. Bathrooms are large and clean!


This was probably the best Hostel I ever stayed in. The atmosphere is awesome and in the evening you meet great people in the HostelBar or at the kitchen. The People who work there do everything to make your stay perfect, they give you special advises for Napoli and are so kind and heartful, that I come back very soon!


STAY HERE. This was my favorite hostel experience while backpacking Italy. I only booked 2 nights but ended up staying 5. Super easy to travel to the rail station to get to Sorrento/Capri, 5 minute walk to bus for Positano and the Amalfi. Staff was AMAZING, super helpful, made great food and bar recommendations. Rooms were clean, comfortable and super inexpensive.


Great staff Good breakfast Good location: 10-mn walk to city center and 100m from the harbor


beware of cockroaches in the bedrooms. staff was nice, but hostel was not so clean.

Great place and extremely friendly staff (our check in was on a really hot day and they met us with water). Great location right by the harbor and the castle. Wonderful room the only down side was were only there for one night.


Great guidance for appreciating Naples. Would like to return.


The staff really made the hostel for me, but they do seem a bit overworked, although they are happy and cheery when I was there it seemed to be one girl running the bar, opening the door, running reception and doing laundry. The staff were very helpful with information and advice. I liked the Ikea bedding too, it was cute and a bit more fun than the average plain white hostel bedding. Slightly too many keys though - buzzer door, large door key, key card, and locker key, impossible to remember!


Fun place with all of the extras you would expect from a great hostel (a bar, maps and connection with a free walking tour, organized activities fun staff etc)


This is such a great hostel to stay at! Staff was super friendly and helpful and give you all the information you need about Napoli or to do one of the day trips. Facilities were good - nice, comfy beds, medium-sized lockers, 3 bathrooms + toilets on the floor, a bar with cheap drinks, two computers and some days they organise free dinners. Location is pretty good to explore the city as it is close to all major attractions. Great place to chill out, have a beer and meet other travellers!


Comfortable place and within walking distance to all the main sites, metro Universita and ferry point.


Such a nice, friendly, welcoming staff. One of the best I've had on my travels around the world. Great atmosphere. Wish I could've stayed longer. Anyone on the edge about staying in Naples- if you stay here you will enjoy it SO much more. Oh and the breakfast is delizioso ;)


A very nice place, not the high end hostal you'd expect but very clean and the staff was awesome. Also the atmosphere is great to meet people or just to hang out by yourself.


Spotlessly clean, helpful staff, great breakfasts! Good communal area so easy to meet people- I would definitely recommend a stay here.


Everything was perfect. Fabulous free breakfast!

Nice place! Got a free pasta dinner one night. Staff seemed pretty cool :) great atmosphere. I replay enjoyed the music that was always playing during the day, but it could be a bother to some people that are trying to have a nap in the day. Location isn't too bad. If recommend it if you want to meet people!
