    Giovanni's Home is a great place to stay. Unfortunately due to the travel restrictions caused by the pandemic Giovanni is closing his hostel. I was his last guest after running the place successfully for twenty years. Despite his obvious distress at losing his home and livelihood he treated me as he does all his guests. He was an excellent source of local information and clearly loves Naples. He served fantastic pizza and pasta on several occasions during my visit. If he opens up again, go!!!

    We absolutely loved this hostel and above all Giovanni and his Pizzas were amazing. The hostel was quite clean, had a nice terrace and most of the places to visit were closeby. Giovanni was a very nice host and we would love to stay here again when we visit Naples.

    Amazing! Giovanni is the best host ever, he really loves what he does and it shows. It’s not like I felt at home, It was home, that good it was. The day I arrived lunch was being prepared and the other guests were waiting for me at the table with a smile, that was an incredible warm welcome. Giovanni is also a master chef, I had the best pizza and pasta here, and I have been trying all the best places in Napoli so I know the standard to compare. Also you get the best tips and advise to explore

    AMAZING HOSTEL!!!! Giovanni is one of the kindest people I have ever met, he shares his incredible passion of Naples with you and tells you all of the amazing things there are to do in Naples, he makes the tastiest authentic Italian food for the whole hostel and creates such a warming and friendly atmosphere. By far the best hostel I have ever been to! Thank you Giovanni for such a wonderful stay, I look forward to coming back to Naples soon !

    Giovannis was AMAZING. giovanni himself is a very sweet and helpful man, (and his pizza/pasta making abilities are unmatched). the hostel is fairly small, but has great common areas so the hostel itself is very sociable and makes it easy to meet people as a solo traveller. thanks gio

    What to say that hasn't already been said. For those that complain about the long check-in, I want to say that Giovanni takes precious life time to tell all the interesting stories and places about his city to every guest. In today's world very few people will dedicate this much time for you, so maybe appreciate. The food, the atmosphere, all great. I only stayed for a weekend, but at the end felt like I was leaving a friend. Great place! I definitely recommend!

    I would like to thank Giovanni soo much to host me and my friend on his hostel for two days. We had a lovely time over there, he cooked an amazing pasta and told us a bit about the history in Naples, giving us tips and main points that we could visit. We're looking forward to come back soon.

    We only stayed here for two nights - but we were so welcomed by Giovanni who made it feel like our home in that short time. He is a hilarious host ‘master chef’ and the best teacher about the incredible city of Naples - he will give you a brilliant intro to the city history, geography etc and the best places to visit and the best things to see. This hostel is filled with great people and great food, thank you so much for having us Giovanni! Nile and Carlotta 😊🍕

    The hostel is more like a b&b. Giovanni is super friendly and cooks amazing meals! It’s also easy to meet people when he’s cooking, because everybody will show up for his meals. He also has a small garden on the rooftop where he grows his on herbs and veggies. Sadly no power outlets at the bed. This is also definitely not a party hostel. I loved Giovanni and he will do anything for his guests. Definitely somebody with passion for running the place!
