  • Nice hostel in a good neighborhood of Naples (not all of them are!). It's close to the metro, but you can walk to most of the things if you're up for it. The room I was in was spacious and clean. The communal showers were less clean. I liked the in hostel bar, lounge area, and outdoor patio.

  • The La Contrera is a classic hostel: welcoming, utilitarian, and inexpensive. Our room was very clean, although the WiFi didn't work in the room. I would recommend staying here, but know that it's pretty far from most of the tourist attractions. The staff gave great recommendations and the neighborhood felt very safe (we were two girls traveling together).

  • General service is very good. for the laundry service, it takes longer time than expected. I need to ask the staff for help by inserting more tokens after half an hour.

  • I have to say I really only have good things to say about this hostel- it was very welcoming and in good condition, with a nice open garden area that is surely rather unusual in Napoli. Bathrooms etc were clean and there was a good, welcoming atmosphere there. Bring a long padlock for your locker, though... (although perhaps you can get one from reception, I didn't ask.)

  • The staff were informative and friendly, which really set a positive atmosphere for the hostel. Some bathrooms/showers were better than others (3-9 had nicer facilities), and the set up of breakfast and the garden really helped me meet other travelers. I would only request the lockers have better holes for small travel locks
