Good location very close to Termini station. Staff was very friendly and helpful, also in retrospective. Room and bathroom was very organized. Would definitely recommend the hostel and stay there again!

Loved it! Great rooms! Only thing that could have been better is power points for the top of the bunk beds.

Oh this hostel was an absolute delight. It's a very well-oiled machine, with good facilities, great bathrooms & showers, clean rooms, and a laid-back common room. Best of all, though, was certainly a lovely lady named Emilia. Very welcoming, friendly, and with a good perspective on life. Made the hostel feel like home- full of friends. It's always the people that make the place, and that certainly was the case for this hostel. Also, francesco was super chill & helpful. Talked italian with me.

Cosy hostel slightly west of termini near embassies that is clean with basic facilities. Wifi is dubious, beds often very uncomfortable and without beside appliances. The atmposhere is more of a guesthouse, and there are no pubcrawls/tours from the hostel. The staff were very helpful. Unfortunately all the hostels seem to be near termini, but this is not a nice area like Trestavere. Not sure if i'd stay here again.

I've now stayed here three times. I love this hostel.

This was our first time staying in a hostel -- ever. It felt completely safe for two girls. We shared a quad with two others that we never met with a private bathroom. The room was spacious and your staff was very nice. Later in our trip we stayed at another hostel in Switzerland. Your hostel was far more superior and I would definitely stay there again.

Everything is clean and works and would recommend it as its in a pretty good location, close to termini station and for getting around the city by metro. As its a smaller hostel there is not much atmosphere if you are looking to meet other travellers. Breakfast was simple but fine, however the staff member monitoring breakfast just seemed really annoyed at being there and wasnt very helpful. Also a table and chairs would be nice in the rooms, there is plenty of space.

Fantastic hostel. I highly recommend staying here when visiting Naples. The staff are so friendly and extremely helpful. The hostel is located close to everything you need. I can't wait to go back.

The wifi is so bad. You can not connected to the wifi most of the time. On the first floor, you have a kitchen but you can not cook any food there. If you want to cook, you have to go to the other floor. But you do not have the key for that.

Thanks for the review. Concerning the kitchen, our guests can cook anything they want since we have all the facilities and even if they are staying in different floors it is not a prioblem because they can always have access to the kitchen. Also, we have many networks at the hostel and it is a bit strange hearing one of our guests complaining about the wifi which is usually strong and it covers all the rooms in the hostel.

Very clean, safe hostel with great bathrooms, but VERY quiet and low key. Not much atmosphere at all and people tend to keep to themselves. Some hostel-organized dinners or pub crawls would be a great way to get people to meet each other and interact. Most people in the hostel are in their late 20s or early 30s. There are not very many people under 25, so it felt very different from the other places I've stayed.

Hostel is fine. Nothing all that elaborate. Atmosphere when I was there happened to be "ehh." Basically dressed, slept, cleaned up and left... Which is fine. Just wasn't the best of experiences for me

My only gripe was that the WiFi was variable.

Great location and great bed. Bad wifi connection and if you have a problem with your room or roomates, you can do nothing because nobody will attend you in the night.

Thank you for your review. It is so strange that you are complaining about our wifi connection which is always strong, also one of the Modems was just in front of your room so maybe the problem was with your device. Concerning the keys, we never had problems with the keys because our reception closes at midnight and with giving our dear guests the keys we make them feel that they are free and in their home in Rome.
