Oustanding infrastructure, with large courtyard, bar and kitchen, wich provides a great atmosphere. Bedrooms are clean and spacious. It is located a couple minutes from a metro station and at a fair walking distance to historic city center. The only thing that could be improved is the water supply of the showers, that is not enough most of the times. The staff is amazing and helpful!! Thanks for the Neapolitan pastry recommendation, was extremely good to try it!

The hostel is relatively easy to access on the subway from Napoli Centrale but regarding the location I would say that it is good rather than great. The immediate neighborhood is loud and crazy, which is characteristic of Naples in general, but it isn't especially close to the historical center. That said, the subway station Salvator Rosa is only 2 minutes on foot from the hostel. The hostel bar and courtyard area was social and lively and the rooms and bathrooms unspectacular but clean.

Awesome hostel, relaxing location in a busy city. Wonderful, fun, friendly staff. Clean, bright rooms with comfy beds. Lots of showers. The staff, courtyard and bar make it hard to leave! Would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Excellent hostel. All the staff are super cool and friendly. Location is central enough and very easy to get to the station and other parts in the city. I'd seriously go back to Napoli only to stay at this hostel, I had an awesome time!

The staff were outstanding. I would especially like to thank Allesandro, Roberta, Michael and Dalilah for helping me organise excursions and bus/ferry timetables. Spacious rooms, plenty of bathrooms and outdoor relaxation areas. Areas that need to be improved on are locks on showers, and boardwalk outside is broken and needs to be replaced. WiFi in rooms didn't work. WiFi in common areas inside was OK but dropped out several times.

Not too far from metro. Had a nice bar and common area offering a good happy hour deal to get you free food. Staff was helpful in explaining what to do in Naples and answered all questions we had. Rooms were a bit too warm in summer for comfort and it was kind of loud because you are next to street, bring earplugs. Bathrooms were clean and wifi worked all through a big kitchen and common area. Good atmosphere met lot of people in bar area.

The hostel was very good, the staff was friendly and the breakfast was included. I really liked the garden and the fact that there is a clean kitchen. The food the offer for breakfast could be improved and it would be nice if there was more space in the bathroom and the showers to put your clothes for example.

Thank you so much for your feedback. Regarding the breakfast, I can just tell everybody what it does include and then each of us has the right to its own opinion: yogurt, fresh fruit salad, milk, the, coffee, juice, 5 types of marmelade, nutella, bread, butter, honey, 3 types of cereals. All this included also in the price of a ten bed mix dorm... Regarding the showers.... I'm not sure of which bathroom you're reffering to as for my knowledfe they all have hangers

Overall really good hostel. Only complaint would be to make it so wifi reaches the rooms and a bit more privacy in the showers, but other than that it's great. Free breakfast, big open patio outside to hang out and meet travellers. Great place!

One of the best hostels I've ever stayed at! Great atmosphere, friendly staff, and awesome facilities. La Controra has highest of my recommendations!! (Although the it would have been perfect if there was working wifi in the rooms)

staff was SO nice, helped us heaps with sightseeing options and transport to Pompeii! The place had a really funky vibe and the kitchen/bar area was very clean and well stocked. The included breakfast was quite generous and the rooms were spacious. Definitely would reccomend- felt like a very safe and welcoming place to stay in Naples.

Staff was helpful, we didn't stay long in Naples so I'm not sure about the location, but our walk to dinner wasn't bad. It was clean and the atmosphere was good if you're looking for a true backpacking hostel! The front desk answered all of our questions and helped us get a taxi at 4am!

Only stayed there for one night. But you can meet great people in that place. Napoli is not for everyone, but the hostel can take that edge off. Staff are amazingly helpful.
