    I've stayed in my fair share of hostels, and staying here was THE best hostel experience I've ever had. The reason for this? Giovanni actively works to make the place feel like a real home. He is such a warm, charismatic individual that truly cares about you and your experiences in Naples- with small gestures such as sitting down with you to go over a map, offering dinner and sweets, or even just happily greeting you each morning. In addition, the community and accommodation were lovely as well!

    Staying in Giovannis Home was like staying with an old family friend. He made everyone feel so welcome, knew everyone's name, and was just like the friendly Italian Uncle you never knew you wanted. He provided an abundance of insider information on Naples and the best places to see. The location was fantastic! He cooked dinner or made a dessert the nights I was there - all delicious! A Top Chef extraordinaire who really cares about the people staying with him. I couldn't recommend this enough!!

    Giovanni goes out of his way to both make you feel at home (he cooked us homemade pasta and pizza during my stay) and tell you about all the great things to do around Naples. Atmosphere was fun and friendly and I had a great time during my stay!

    Giovanni was the most amazing hostel host I have ever had. He made us pasta, pizza, and tiramisu. And he played guitar for us. Most of all, he gave us amazing advice about how to navigate the city and the surrounding sights.

    I had a great two nights at Giovanni's. Rooms were clean , no lockers but the place is very secure with not many beds so I was never worried . Giovanni cooked a fabulous meal for arrival lunch !! He goes above and beyond to make sure his guests are welcome and comfortable . I highly recommend a stay here . It's also very well located in the heart of the historical town , easy walking distance to everything .

    The hostel itself is old, but it keeps with the vibe of the city and still has everything you could need readily available. Giovanni is the reason you should stay here, he made everyone feel welcome and at home, he’s built a perfect vibe which made everyone in the hostel want to hang out. He also has a big spiel about all the things to do in Naples - most of which I didn’t even know about. Absolutely amazing, would definitely stay there again, and have already been raving about it to others.

    Loved Giovanni! He is so passionate about Naples and loves to share his city. The hostel was near the metro and easy walking to several key points of interest, the beds were comfortable even though the top bunk was a little low for me. The facilities were decent as well, got the job done! One downside is that the flat is on the third floor and you cannot use the elevator so be ready for a climb especially if you have luggage.

    Giovanni has an encyclopaedic knowledge of Naples and he makes full use of this when you arrive, giving a colourful presentation on the must-see sights in his beloved city. He also makes dinner for his guests most evenings and is happy to chat to you about all manner of topics. The atmosphere of the hostel is one of the friendliest I've been. The dorms are tired, although comfortable. It would be good to have some basic breakfast items too, but overall I'd recommend for anyone staying in Naples.
