    The best hostel I’ve stayed in! Giovanni was very friendly and welcoming and taught me so much about Naples and what there is to do. Chef Giovanni even gave us a cooking lesson and made some fresh pizza. I met lots of lovely people and there was a real family feel. Lots of plug sockets and extensions in the room. Great location with lots of sights within walking distance. Grazie Mille Giovanni, definitely will come back when I return to Naples!

    Giovanni's home was awesome. Giovanni gave us direction around the city of Naples, providing a map and a short presentation. Giovanni also cooked us incredible pasta and pizza. He was very helpful and very generous.

    We just want to thank Giovanni! The hostel is super clean and tidy. He cooked neapolitan pizza and pasta for us! We are honest when we say, this is the finest stay you can find in Naples! We had the best time, we made a lot of new friends mostly thank to Giovanni, who brought us together with his fantastic pizza! GRAZIE PER TUTTO GIOVANNI!

    Giovanni’s Home is the BEST hostel in Naples hands down - incredible host, convenient central location, clean rooms and facilities, and all at a very very reasonable price. My friend and I had a fantastic experience at Giovanni’s home from the moment we walked in the door tired from travel he handed us plates of pasta, to our last day when he sent us home with some homemade pizza to try. This is the place to stay in Naples!

    Wow! What can I say about this place that thousands of others have not already said. Giovanni is a special breed, he treats you with such respect and takes in to consideration your needs and desires. He is thoughtful and full of valuable information which he will happily share if you ask and upon arrival. He genuinely cares about your time and how you spend it in Naples. The place has all you need, and more. Very close to transportation, sparkly clean and warm hearted welcomes.

    A lovably eccentric host, the owner gives you plenty of local knowledge and goes above and beyond the duties of a normal hostel owner. When I arrived there was a large plate of pasta waiting for me, and on the last day he gave us his home made pizza - honestly some of the best pizza I have tasted! The hostel itself is very clean and felt very safe and is in a fantastic location, central to everything you could want to do. Two nights just wasn't enough!

    Giovanni is an exceptional host, he has so much knowledge of the area and things to do that you will probably regret not staying longer, he cooks regularly for all the guests, and his pizza and pasta is as good as anywhere else I ate in Naples. These pizza dinners make for very fun evenings and the perfect opportunity to meet the other guests and make friends. Things to consider however is that this is definately not a party hostel and not all the beds have access to a powerpoint.

    Gd reviews led me here, but I didn’t enjoy my stay. While the location is central, the past negative reviews are correct — Giovanni is a pushy host and doesn’t respect guests’ privacy or choices. In the dorm there was 1 plug, no railings to make the top bunks safe, and u have to wait in the kitchen for the bathroom. He is kind to cook and share food, but won’t take no for an answer & gets offended/angry when you don’t want to join. The intro talk is long and includes q aggressive criticisms.
