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.

    Stayed for 2 nights, It was easy checkin and out. View from my room’s balcony was great! Hostel is nearby site attraction. It was rainy but because they have lounge area most guests chilled there and met some awesome travelers! Surprisingly we had free brekky which is cool! Headsup, if you’re lazy like and do not bring toiletries they don’t provide (I could have ask but no need - it was my bad) Overall it was a great stay will defo stay there again when I visit Napoli. Thanks Roberto 👍🏻

    Perfect atmosphere for a perfect city, smiling people and many solo travelers, good public transports and food for breakfast. Bedrooms are perfectly mixed with nationalities and this makes the place more interesting. Even if you are not italian, you can enjoy the workers at the next building insulting eachselves in local dialect in the early morning, that's really typical and if you wouldn't like to hear them, you're not prepared to Naples. Thank you for the life advices that other guys gave me!

    Everything was perfect! Hostel is situated only 3 minutes on foot from the closest metro station and 20 minutes on foot from city center. Room, bathroom and common areas were clean. Free breakfast was included in the price(toasted bread, ricotta cheese, tomatoes, yogurt, cereals and American coffee) . Staff was super-friendly. There is an amazing garden where you can relax and meet people. I would definitely choose again that place!

    I absolutely loved my stay at La Controra. It was a hub of friendliness and peace amidst the wonderful chaos of Napoli. The staff was very friendly and helpful, the place itself had a great atmosphere and the breakfast was a cherry on top. I will recommend this place to my friends who might want to pass through the city.

    I had a lovely one-night stay at La Controra. Around-the-clock check-in if I'm not mistaken, so I didn't have to stress about the fact that I was arriving late in the evening. Sheets were already on the beds, everything super clean and organized. Lovely breakfast of fruit, yogurt, cereal, toast... clean bathrooms and showers... and most importantly, a super friendly staff to make everything easy and comfortable.

    One of my favourite places to stay! Really nice neighbourhood; very safe to walk around in late at night, out of the busy centre but easy 15mins walk in to all the sites. The thing that makes this hostel special is the staff that works there, constantly going above and beyond to make you feel at home and give you all the best possible advise to any questions you may have! This was my second time staying at La Controra and I like forward to the next one! Hope you enjoyed the Amarone ;)

    It's the second time I have been to La Controra Hostel and I always feel at home! The staff is welcoming, ready to help and to answer any questions. The place is well organised with a outdoor park, self-service kitchen, receptions, floors with bathrooms and showers. They usually provide breakfast included in the price of the room, delicious and lots of variety! Lastly, the vibes are very friendly and able to meet new travellers !

    The hostel is up the hill, so a bit of a walk into the city but the metro is close by as well. I didn’t find it very social but maybe that’s because it was low season. The staff is friendly and helpful. The facilities were okay but so super tiny, that was a bit uncomfortable. The dorms on the other hand were spacious with big lockers as well.

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
