    By far the best hostel I have ever stayed at. Giovanni’s knowledge and passion for Napoli means that you get an incredible experience. He helps you travel his town outlining where to go and what to see making it a very easy town to explore. His cooking is Masterchef level and homemade food makes it feel like you are staying in a family home.

    Staying here was amazing! An experience I will never forget. Ever. The website isnt allowing me enough space to fully describe it to you..So i will say this: if you are scared about traveling to Italy right now,don’t be. I stayed in Napoli for several days & nothing is out of the ordinary there. Dont let the media get to you. The city is beautiful & safe & the owner ties it all together. He provides not just a place to stay but a place to eat,sing, converse about life & so much more. Go & enjoy!

    This is the best place to stay if you’re going to Naples. Not only is Giovanni such a wonderful host he is also so generous. He made us fresh pizza, soup and a pasta dish with octopus. He will tell you that Naples is the best city in Italy and can easily back up why. If you aren’t sure where to start just ask. He will provide you with a map and information to see all the sites you can. I can’t rave enough about his hostle, I was so glad I found it!

    Giovanni is amazing. Yes, he will tell you EVERYTHING you need to know about Naples so that does take some time, he also makes great pizza (on occasion) and is very friendly. If you want to feel like you are back in a real home rather than a normal hostel, this is for you.

    My stay at Giovanni's home was nothing short of amazing! The hostel is located right in the historical centre, just around the corner from all the major sites. Giovanni also sat down with me to talk about the history of Naples and its surrounding areas, giving recommendations for things to do, see and eat. He also cooks amazing Italian food and shares it with guests occasionally. I will definitely stay here again when I'm in Naples.

    This was an amazing a friendly hostel. I can't stop raving about it to my friends and family, and can't wait to come back and introduce them to Giovanni. I don't think my trip would have been the same without the inside knowledge and guide he handed out. Thank you so much :)

    Giovanni is such an awesome host. He made us feel very welcome and gave us incredibly valuable help on where to see the best sights of Naples. His suggestions of where to go made us fall in love with Naples and you can tell Giovanni loves the city also. We had a great stay and would 100% return to stay with Giovanni.

    If you want to visit Napoli, you want to stay with Giovanni. He's an incredible host and a super knowledgable guide of the city and surrounding areas. When I arrived he was generous enough to pick me up at the bus station, then gave me a scenic tour on his motorbike. He cooked for the entire hostel each day I was there and it was REALLY good. The place itself is average. It's nothing out of the ordinary, but the location is great and the host is above and beyond top-notch. I'd love to come back!

    Giovanni cooks some meals for his guests, which is a very nice gesture. He also suggests some sightseeing options on the city. He’s flexible on arrival times and checkouts. I would recommend it for those solo travelers who are expecting to meet people but it’s definitely not a party-like hostel. “No drunk people allowed” It’s more like a home, there’s not much freedom as in other hostels.

    I had an interesting stay at Giovanni’s. After getting off a long train and walking my suitcase up 4 floors of stairs, I was not prepared (or given the option) to listen to his long winded (hour and a half) recommendations of Naples and opinions regarding other cities in Italy (that they are all “s**t”). Giovanni speaks with condescending undertones, mocking myself and other guests for wanting to do a free walking tour and mocking our countries/ cultures. Clean place and nice that he cooks
