  • Giovanni is very knowledgable about Naples, and will give you a map with good places to visit, etc. my partner and I arrived at the hostel planning to grab something to eat after checking in but Giovanni gave us some dinner that he made. It was very good! The hostel has a home feel with a full kitchen that Giovanni uses himself.

  • The owner of this place is a great guy who shows you that the often misjudged South of Italy is actually a great place to be!! He creates a "home" feeling in the hostel.

  • I really enjoyed my stay here. Giovanni was very welcoming and even cooked us a delcious lunch on our first day. He mapped out all the best places to go in the city and really made our stay in Naples enjoyable and safe. The hostel was also a great place to meet fellow travelers and hang out in the evenings when it's not such a great idea to go wandering through the streets (Giovanni suggested we don't stay out past 10). I would definitely come back and stay here again.

  • Giovanni is an incredibly kind and helpful individual. When you stay at Giovanni's home that's just what it feels like, like you're a guest in his home. He'll give you a map and highlight the sights and tell you all the reasons why his city is the best in Italy. Take his advice and you won't regret it. The friendly environment he fosters is a great place to meet fellow travelers. He's only a block away from the famous Gino Sorbillo's too. Basically, stay here, and stay a few days.

  • Giovanni was so warm and welcoming! He made it fun and easy to explore Naples, and the environment and social atmosphere in the hostel were the best of anywhere we've stayed. Any time we hear that someone is going to Naples, we tell them to stay at Giovanni's!

One early morning, accompanied with a semi-hot cappuccino and croissant eaten like a true Roman - standing up and in a hurry - I was off on the Metro to the Vatican.
