For the party people, this is the right place to stay. Unfortunately not for me. The big concern for me was the shower room, it was very very small. I felt like in the coffin when every time I take a bath. But 2 things I love about this hostel is the friendly staff and the location was perfect, it took about 5 minute walking distance to Colosseum and it very near to Cavour train station. Also easy to get food too.

Stayed only for a night here and wished could stayed longer. Fantastic atmosphere and location. Staff were very helpful and friendly, even invited us to go out at night to hit a few drinks. Facilities are great as well. The only thing I could say is that it is a bit small and tight.

We had a lot of fun here. this is a party hostel, the music plays till 12am each night, so if you want to sleep this is not the place. we played beer pong and had a free dinner there. breakfast is good with a small price. staff are helpful. no lockouts.

This hostel is conveniently placed near the central rail station (within walking distance) but they area is area is really shady. The staff was slightly creepy, the overall feel was night clean. We had one last night to spend in Rome in order to catch a flight so we stayed their one night and would not have wanted to stay any longer. We just needed a bed and it was cheap!

The biggest plus about this place was the staff. They were so friendly. The minute we stepped in they offered us water and champagne and made us feel very welcome! They also had free cocktail and pasta parties which were fun! However, the place was kind of dirty and really hot, as there was no air conditioning, but that's pretty typical of Europe. There also weren't enough lockers for everyone staying there.

People are very nice but it's an hostel to do party all the night!:) But I slep well after 11:30pm there was no noise. Dorms are very huge I think we was 12 in the same room.

They play music from 10 AM - 12 PM everyday and kick you out from 11 AM - 4 PM. So if you want to take a nap or something after walking around all day or get to bed early to see the sights in the morning, its not possible. Its very old and smells really bad in the rooms. I would not recommend to stay.

I might recommend this hostel to college age students who want to meet people and enjoy to party. The kitchen is well equipped which is awesome if you want to make food and the staff was pretty helpful and friendly! Only thing is the beds are pretty uncomfortable and it can be noisy outside.

It is such a noisy place and the bed are not that good. The photos cheat you because it is related to Hotel and not about the HOSTEL. The guys are nice, but i wouldnt like to come back.

Just a great hostel! The staff are people from all around the world ready to make you have a great time getting to know the city and activities to do. It's perfrctly located near the port, and some squares to go out at night. There is a good breakfast too, with fruits, bread, marmelade, and coffe and tea to serve yourself all day; but the reason why I recomend this hostel is the feeling of being at home you get, and the great ambience. Thanks for a great time in Naples!

Great way to meet people and just do your thing! If you want a 5 star hotel, then go to a 5 star hotel.

The hostel was in a good location and was cheap, but those were the only positives. Staff was helpful, but at night could be very creepy especially toward female visitors (I was told so by one myself). Loud music will play every night until midnight so do not plan on sleeping. Very few outlets in rooms for large number of people, bathrooms were crowded and quite dirty. 4 lockers available for 20+ people. Breakfast was cheap, but very small selection.

This hostel has an ideal location, however bathrooms need A LOT OF ATTENTION. they are in need of a massive upgrade, dirty, peeling paint, cracks in walls, overall unclean. The hostel being closed from 11-4 makes planning your day a must. And you need to be sure you have everything as you cannot get back in. They say it's closed for cleaning, but you hardly notice a difference after the lock out. Staff are super friendly, and the location is ideal, just a few tweeks will make this hostel better

Great party hostel free drink and some snacks at night... it is small and the worst thing is that the hostel is closed between 11 am and 4 pm so that might get you in trouble if you run out of money or need anything on your room

they need to turn the music off so people can get some sleep and also the beds need to be better maintained. I couldn't sleep partly because the bed was falling apart.
