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.

Overview

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.

Location

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.

    This is the best hostel I have ever stayed with no doubt. Literally! Super friendly staff, clean and spacious rooms, nice bar, common areas to have some drinks and talk with other travellers, nice cosy kitchen with all the necessary facilities, and rich breakfast table (healthy and tasty options). Walking distance to some touristic attractions, as well as 5 mins away from a metro station that you can reach everywhere from. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

    We had a great time here...perfect location for walking to the metro and many attractions. The free breakfast was simple, but great and the laundry facilities were really convenient. One of the front desk staff, Michaela, was particularly awesome. She provided a TON of information on the area, attractions, getting around, where to eat etc, and even called a restaurant to get us a reservation. Thanks Michaela, for making our experience special!

    Staff is super friendly and helpful. Short walk from a metro station which makes getting around the city quickly easy. Free breakfast comes with lots of options. Also a fan of the diner provided after you buy a drink. Definitely a cool way to meet others at the hostel. Even in the 10 person room the room was super clean. Bathrooms were large as well with plenty if stalls. Only downside was that I forgot a towel and the ones provided are pretty thin. Overall though, great experience!

    05 Dec 2019
    This is a nice hostel. The good: really nice facilities, free breakfast and they feed you everyday if you buy a drink at the bar that costs over €3, but real good food! The unpredictable: The staff is nice, young and cool and I think the hostel has everything (bar, kitchen, patio) to have a great atmosphere. Unfortunately, my experience didn’t meet expectations. Guests were on the 50+ age groups and didn’t really mingle the way solo travelers do. The not so good: it’s faaaar from everything!

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
