Everyone was SO friendly here. I only stayed one night but had a fantastic time in Naples--better than I ever expected! The staff is very friendly and full of information about what to do in the area. You even get a free drink when you arrive and a super affordable happy hour with food.

Staff was great, special thanks to Roberta and Jonathan. The atmosphere in the garden during the evenings was also pretty nice, great to meet people! 4 bed dorm was good, big enough and confortable. Shower was bad, very small and not enough pressure. The rented towel was bad too, looked like a linen and had holes in it. I was really disapointed because I got to The breakfast 10 minutes before it was supposed to end and there was nothing! Not one bread, not even coffee. Being too cheap!

Thank you for your review. The towel indeed was thin,it is called a Waffle Weave Towel,not "towel with holes",you could have given it back even used and we would return you back the money if you consider that it didn't dry enough. I'm sorry about the water, probably you took a shower when everybody else did. Regarding the breakfast...Are you sure it wasn't 10.10?! :) I'm sure even if it was 10.10, if you express the intention of taking the breakfast somebody would bring you more..

Great hostel. Loved the atmosphere, big, spacious rooms with clean bathrooms. Loved the separate toilet and shower. Breakfast included is always a bonus. People working reception are INCREDIBLE. They take the time to learn your name and show you a map and exactly what to see! Very nice and helpful.

Best hostel we'd stayed at in Italy! If I had return to Naples, I would definitely come back again.

Very nice and clean hostel and the staff even nicer! The hostel is at a 10-minute-walk from the city center, is calm and safe with a private parking available.

This hostel has a fun atmosphere and is definitely trying to be that "cool youth hostel" for 20-something travelers. I didn't much enjoy sharing a room with 5 other strangers (and at least 1 snorer), but I got what I paid for. Besides the overcrowding, the rooms are spacious and bathroom/shower are clean. The location is not bad, easy to get to downtown by either walking or taking the metro. Overall I enjoyed the visit but don't know that I will stay here again.

Thank you for your review, but I'm not sure if I can take it as a feedback for us or for yourself... You are not sure if you'd stay in OUR hostel.. or in a hostel IN GENERAL? Because you chooosed the type of room for yourself and you knew for sure that you'll gonna be sharing the room with 5 other people... I'm sorry about the snorer, maybe we should include in the reservation a question like "Hey,do you snore?" . why OVERCROWDING? The rooms are spacious, with the no. of ppl you choosed.

The minute we walked in we knew we had come to a good hostel. The staff were friendly and provided lots of local information. There was an outdoor area where we chatted to other travellers in the evening. The rooms were spacious and air conditioned and plenty of bathrooms for everyone. We only stayed one night but would have liked to stay longer :) highly recommend.

The place was a little hard to find but once we found it the staff were really nice and friendly! They do a €3 dinner most nights which is awesome! The atmosphere there is great good to meet new people! Wifi was fast and available in the rooms but the location was a little far out and in a bit of a dodgey area, in fact all of Naples is dodgey! They also have a spotify set up at the main bar where you can pick your own music and kick back and relax!

Such a great experience staying at this hostel. The staff were friendly, energetic and very helpful. The atmosphere was amazing and it was so easy to meet new people and socialise. It was also very well located, only a short walk to the historic area and the staff were always willing to give tips and advice on what to see and do in Naples.

This was one of the best hostels we've stayed at yet. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful - lots of amazing recommendations. Everything was clean and the atmosphere was great. We would definitely recommend La Controra to anyone.

Hostel location is very good, staff were super and the dorm was good. They have free pasta happy hour where you can buy a pint of peroni or something that costs €3 and you can eat free pasta. Also they give a free cocktail to all guests, and the free breakfast was great. The only downside was the lack of atmosphere on the night I stayed.

I did have a great experience in this hostel despite the fact that i had to sleep in an extra bed in a room of six people, the staff were very kind and solved the problem. The place is easy to find. In general, it's quite a nice hostel.

Staff were so nice and chilled. I was a solo traveller and met loads of people while staying here. I was only here two nights and was really sad to leave! Couldn't complain about anything - perfectly clean and I felt like all my things were safe. If I were back in naples I would stay here again!

This is one of the best hostels I've stayed in and I highly recommend it! There's a friendly and sociable atmosphere complimented by a fantastic staff who live on site and frequently hang out with guests in their free time. Each room has large, sturdy lockers built into the walls and everything is impeccably clean. The only downside is that they sometimes turn off the A/C from 0200 to 0700 due to neighbor complaints but it's not an issue because the room stays cool at night.
