    Giovanni is the most generous person I have ever met. He has such a wealth of knowledge of Napoli and such a big heart. He made my stay very special and cooked all guests the most delicious pizza and pasta. As well us running a hostel, he could also open a restaurant. The hostel itself is in an excellent central location, the facilities are simple, but everything is clean and comfortable. I felt very well staying there over my holidays. Thank you, Giovanni!

    This is, far and away, the best hostel I have ever stayed at. Giovanni is a real gem, and his knowledge and insight into Naples and the surrounding area really enhanced my experience. The fact that it's called Giovanni's HOME is no mistake, because this hostel truly feels like home. Giovanni is always willing to help you out, and the facilities are clean and cozy. If you're looking to make new friends, the atmosphere at the hostel is perfect for it. This is a truly wonderful place!

    What a lovely hostel with so many interesting travellers to talk to and explore the city with. Great hostel owner who explains the history of the city to you, gives you suggestions what to visit and feeds you a nice bowl of pasta on arrival. I just wish my holiday lasted longer.

    This place is INCREDIBLE!! I will stay here again! Giovanni is an incredible host, just don't be too loud or drunk late into the night or he will be grumpy! It is much more like you are in a home and not a hostel, which is amazing!! The only problem I had (initially) was the lack of lockers in the room, however the atmosphere means that this isn't a problem. Such a great communal vibe, and you definitely want to visit where Giovanni suggests. Thank you Giovanni, you're incredible!! Oscar :)

    Giovanni is amazing and highly recommend staying. Only disappointment was the lack of lockers and charging points near beds, but the hostel (home) felt secure enough to not worry. The mens’ bathrooms were very substandard compared to the girls’ but when you use it for about 20mins Max each day it doesn’t matter too much. Thank you Giovanni, I will hopefully be back soon!

    The host is truely amazing!! The Best and coolest man ive ever met. He really makes you feel at home, a great chef and a guide for the city. There is a large table on the huge terrace to hang around. Cleanliness is bit on the down side. You really should visit this place just to meet Giovanni! I will mever forget my 5 nights in this place.

    This is not a usual hostel, it’s more like staying at someone’s place. Giovanni’s mission is to convince people that Naples offers more than they think - so you’ll receive a thorough introduction to the city on arrival, and there’s a good chance to be treated to some home cooked pasta. The rooms are basic, the common area could be a bit more welcoming and the men’s bathrooms are very small - but the personal vibe and the rooftop terrace make up for it. Also, using the washing machine was free.
