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.

    The overall experience was amazing. The staff was extremely helpful and welcoming, they treated us as if we were their friends. The rooms and bathrooms (in separate rooms!) were clean and tidy. Breakfast - incredible, from toasts with jam to yogurt and fruits! Even some hotels couldn’t compete with that. Would 100% recommend to everyone!

    Great bar area and the best hostel breakfast I've eaten. Superb, knowledgeable staff who can show you some of the best food & coffee spots. One small issue I had was the directions from the metro station were confusing, as they didn't state from which gate to exit.

    This place is great (at least once you get used to the hills). Staff was good- always someone to answer questions ( even when their computer was down😉). It wasn’t particularly social at the beginning but soon had the perfect hostel vibe- hostel where people partied together without being a party hostel.

    I spent 2 nights in this hostel and it was very nice. All of the staff was very friendly and helpfull, especially Michele! She gave me a lot of tips and ideas what to do in Naples and I felt very welcome during my stay there. The place is very clean and nice, although the atmosphere was a bit lame, but that’s probably because of the off season and there weren’t many people hanging around that time. But I would definetly recommend this hostel for anyone who wants to spend a few days in Naples!

    During my trip along Italy I have been treated very well in all the accommodations. But at La Controra it has been even more special. The superb La Controra’s staff have helped and treated me in a unbeatable way. Thank you. Tras atravesar Italia viajando he sido tratado muy bien en todos los alojamientos. Pero en La Controra ha sido aún mas especial gracias al magnifico personal que me ha ayudado y tratado inmejorablemente. Gracias.

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
