Hostelworld says

La Controra Hostel Naples is located 15 minutes' walk from Certosa di San Martino and is about 20 minutes from the rest of the historic centre. It's also located very near a metro station, so it's easy to get all around the city quickly. This hostel's most popular feature is its very large grassy courtyard as well as their free, highly praised breakfast. Hostelworld guests tell us the staff are "great and helpful" and that they'd definitely stay here again.

Property Description

Keep out the crazy town and chill out in the spacious garden among palms and citruses.
We offer dorms as well as private solutions. Free Wi-Fi, the computer room and the lounge, our great garden and bar, a fully equipped kitchen are only few of the many services that made La Controra become the most famous hostel in town.
Book our really cheap and funny Walking Tours; even better, enjoy our Floating Tour, an amazing day trip on a private traditional Neapolitan boat in the sweet Naples Gulf: Capri, Sorrento and the whole coast included in the tour!
Like La Controra Hostel Rome near the Spanish Steps, La Controra Hostel Naples is in the centre of the city, in a safe area halfway up the Vomero Hill, very close to a Metro Station and within fair walking distance from the historical centre further downhill, and from the most important sights of the city such as the Sant'Elmo Castle, the Royal Palace, Spaccanapoli, and the Modern Art Museum Madre, and even from the bus terminal for day trips to Capri and Pompeii, Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast.

Live the Italian dream, with a little luxe thrown into the mix, at La Controra Hostel Naples. You can work on the tan in the big, grassy courtyard or get some shade under the palms and citrus trees. There's a café bar (where you can fill up on the free breakfast) and free Wi-Fi for uploading a shot of those dreamy palm trees on Instagram (#wanderlust). Our trips are some of the coolest: choose from walking tours and private journeys on a classic boat in the Gulf of Naples, swinging by Capri and Sorrento for good measure.


We're about 25 minutes on foot from the gorgeous Certosa di San Martino, an old monastery that's close to the middle of the old town. After all that wandering you can save your legs by taking the metro – Salvator Rosa station's a 5-minute walk away and gets you to us from sights like Castel Sant'Elmo in two stops. Naples International Airport is less than a 20-minute journey from La Controra. You can grab the Alibus to the Plaza Garibaldi and then get a 15-minute metro ride (L1 towards Piscinola) to Salvator Rosa.

Rooms and Dorms

We've got private rooms with en-suites or you can opt to say in a dorm. Air con and linen are included to make your stay extra comfy and you'll be glad to know we've got an elevator to whizz you (and your pack) up to the rooms. Each bed's got a reading light and we've got hairdryers on hand to save you packing one. You can hire a towel from us too.

Extras and activities

Feeling inspired by those drool-worthy pizzas you're seeing everywhere? We've got a kitchen where you can test your skills. If you're more of a snacker than a cook, we've got vending machines as your fall back. There's a lounge for putting your feet up and having a gossip, or head to the games room. Keen to catch up on your social? Feel free to use our computers.

    La Controra was the best hostel I have stayed in so far! I have been travelling for four weeks around Europe and this was the first one where I felt 100% comfortable and relaxed. The staff are friendly, the rooms are spacious and the location is so close to the Metro, making it easy to get to. Not too many stairs either for those who have big suitcases. If I return to Naples I will definitely be back to La Controra!

    Had an awesome time here! Staff were lovely and helpful. Rooms were fantastic! Best hostel room I’ve stayed in. Was in a 6 bed mixed dorm but the room was so big and spacious. Big lockers for baggage was great. Also the aircon was amazing, it was so hot in Naples and when we walked into our room it was so refreshing. Was even able to sleep with the blanket! Great breakfast also; cereals, fruit, yoghurt, bread, coffee, drinks. Would 100% recommend for anyone - would be great for solo travellers

    Had a really nice stay here. It was a small, chilled hostel but very easy to meet people and the staff were really helpful and friendly, they ordered takeaway pizza for us to deliver to the hostel :) The garden and sofas were really nice and it felt very homely. Location was a fine, not right in the centre but right next to a metro so it didn’t bother me at all. All round very positive.

    Awesome hostel! Staff are extremely helpful and nice! The rooms are big and spacious and very clean. Lockers are large enough for a big pack and small backpack. The atmosphere at the hostel is great! Only negative was that the location is about a 20-25 minute walk from the old city and at night time walking back can be a bit scary.

    We highly enjoyed our stay at La Controra Hostel. The rooms were clean and cleaned everyday, the staff were amazing, helping us with any questions and giving us tips for exploring the city. One of us fell ill during our stay here and they were extremely helpful, giving us doctor information as well as accommodating the extra night we needed. The atmosphere was great, the breakfast phenomenal and the kitchens were fully equipped. We felt very safe in the hostel and would definitely recommend.

    Great staff, amazing common areas and lots of people to meet. The free breakfasts and dinners were phenominal. I was in 2 different rooms during my stay - the first had a pretty uncomfortable bed and the AC didnt work very well, but the second room was very comfortable with a great AC, so overall I liked my stay here. Bathrooms are also a bit cramped

    Not very close to anything but walkable to historic parts of the city. Great staff except the cleaning lady who annoyed most people in our room by yelling on the phone or blasting music every day and obviously not caring at all.

    The bathrooms in this hostel are kind of dirty and the showers flooded. The free breakfast is fantastic and I got a good nights sleep so pretty decent hostel for cheap. Not much of a vibe at all but I did only stay one night. Area is dirty but I think the whole of Naples is a bit grungy so maybe thats normal.

La Controra Hostel Naples says

I think what really makes us different is that La Controra is an open place for the locals as well. It has a CSR programme sustaining the activities of different NGOs, organizes events (music, arts and culture) and conferences for everybody that has an interest in promoting the city for durable development, encouraging in this manner the communication between the tourist and the locals, offering a more impactful experience in getting to know Neapolitan culture.
Our building was originally constructed in the 1600s as a monastery, so it's got a lot of big common areas, a high level of security and a big interior garden that's an oasis from our crazy and crowded city, regardless of the season.
As we all know, we flashpackers love to walk. Within walking distance from here is the Archeological Museum (7 minutes), the historical centre (10 minutes) and San Martino (20 minutes). It's kind of difficult to recommend just one place but my favourite is probably the Archeological Museum.
We welcome anyone aged 18 to 30 who has a free spirit and wants to explore, people who have as passion travelling and that would enjoy a crazy day/night spent in the historical centre, but also like to socialize and enjoy all the facilities that we offer. Our kind of guest is the global citizen. Not only we are children friendly but we also have an entrance easy reachable by bikes and wheelchair. The elevator is big enough also for wheelchair, we have some rooms that have special features for people with disabilities. Mugu, Staff
