    Giovanni's home felt like being with family. When I arrived there was a huge helping of vegan pasta waiting for me (he asked me about my dietary restrictions ahead of time :) . He gave me an hour long speech about the history of Napoli and Italy and even drew a map of the best places to go for sights, food, etc. If I had any questions at all, I felt comfortable asking for help from Giovanni. I made friends quite easily at Giovanni's. I will remember him and my experience forever :)

    I can only say I have never encountered this level of hospitality in a hostel before, and I've been to a few, always choosing the best ones! Giovanni is literally welcoming you as a guest to his home, and he is being a very kind and generous host. I am also impressed that he spends at least one hour explaining to all new guests, whether alone or in a group, all the intricacies of the city. If you want to feel a bit of Italian culture and mentality, stay at Giovanni's Home rather than hostel!

    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.

    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.

    Giovanni is super nice - he made us pasta as soon as we arrived, and had everyone get together for homemade pizza one night. He is definitely very opinionated about what you’ll be doing with your time in Naples, but don’t let that get to you. Overall it was a good time!

    There always seems to be little things that are unsaid, and those things may be important to some but not others. So here are mine 1) while you can cook there, and Giovanni is gracious and has a Huge 5 burner stove with oven and every piece of cookware needed, make sure you ask Him if he is cooking. 2) I did not read about stairs, and yeah I expected them in my travels there but the one to get up to the hostel, which is the third floor, well they are torturous! 3) no comfy seating to relax.
