  • This place is amazing, I've never felt so at home in an hostel! Giovanni is always there to help you navigate the city, he take the time to introduce you to Naples and its hidden secrets. If you're visiting Naples, this is the place to go in my opinion.

  • Giovanni is simply the best. EAT BEFORE YOU ARRIVE. Giovanni will explain what Naples has to offer once you arrive, so it really is important that you eat prior to arriving so you can focus on what he is telling you. Also, Giovanni will likely cook for you during your stay, embrace it! He taught us how to make a pasta recipe that we now share with our family. I would highly recommend this hostel.

  • Giovanni is very very nice and informative .. he really wants you to have a good time , he is a very proud Napelist .. Its on the third floor with no elevator ... so keep it in mind.. Crowd are very young and if you are a private person this is not the right place.

  • This was by far my favorite hostel throughout my 6 week trip. Giovanni was so kind to us and definitely went the extra mile. He gave us a ton of ideas of what to do and was always helpful if when needed advice. He taught us how to make real Italian spaghetti and helped us make pesto pasta properly. Finally I will be forever grateful for his help when I came back to the hostel with cut up legs from a bad fall. Giovanni made sure I had everything I needed to clean and dress the wounds. Amazing

  • Giovanni was an amazing host. He went above and beyond! When we got there he gave us a map of Naples and went over the history and best spots to visit. He then made us an amazing lunch. By far my best hostel experience!!!

  • I had a wonderful stay at Giovanni's and the hostel is located right in the middle of the historic center. Giovanni was very helpful in explaining what I should see in Naples and he knew really a lot about the surrounding areas as well. Also I have never felt more comfortable and safe in a hostel with no worries of people stealing my things. It was just a very friendly and nice atmosphere!
