Hostel Naples La Controra: the only luxury hostel in Italy. At hostel prices.
The Sun and the Dark, catacombs and blue sea: this is Naples, the city of the noise and the pizza, the Baroque and the melody.
In this crazy place, come and chill out in the spacious garden among palms and citruses. Hostel Naples La Controra is a monastery transformed into a flashpackers hostel. Our lounge always hostes exhibitions and events and you will have a unique opportunity to mix up with locals if you like.

We are in the centre of the city in a safe area halfway up the Vomero Hill, very close to a Metro Station and within fair walking distance from the historical centre further downhill, and from the most important sights of the city such as the Sant'Elmo Castle, the Royal Palace, Spaccanapoli, and the Modern Art Museum Madre, and even from the bus terminal for day trips to Capri and Pompeii, Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast.

Directions
ALWAYS VALIDATE YOUR TICKET!
Buy a Metronapoli ticket (at the yellow kiosks as well as tabbaconists' (T) shops: the 3 euro day pass is a good deal).
La Controra is close to the Salvator Rosa metro stop on Line 1: if you come from Napoli Centrale train station, take metro Line 2 until Cavour station, then change to Line 1, Piscinola direction. Once in Salvator Rosa station, take escalators up and follow exit signs to Santa Croce. When you emerge, go down hill keeping on the left hand.
Piazzetta Trinità alla Cesarea is on the left: it is not the first alley you find (which is Vico San Mandato), it is the second alley, basically, a little stairway with a crumbling red-painted church at the top. Walk toward it - we are tucked just around the corner to the left.
Prices are per person per night.

La Controra is close to the Salvator Rosa metro stop on Line 1.
EASY LIKE THIS:
If you come from Napoli Centrale train station, take metro Line 1 direction Piscinola and get down at Salvator Rosa. Once in Salvator Rosa station, take escalators up and follow exit signs to Santa Croce. When you emerge, go down hill keeping on the left hand.
Piazzetta Trinità alla Cesarea is on the left: it is not the first alley you find (which is Vico San Mandato), it is the second alley, basically, a little stairway with a crumbling red-painted church at the top. Walk toward it - we are tucked just around the corner to the left.

If you come from the airport, take Alibus until the Central Station and then follow the instructions mentioned above.
