I had a great stay with Giovanni in Naples. He welcomed me into his home with freshly made pasta and iced water! He made all his guests feel at home and made sure they made friends. I would not have had such a great time in Naples without his help! He really wants to help you get to know his...

Hostel is located up 3 levels of steep stairs, Guests are not allowed to use the lift. Giovanni is very passionate about Naples which is a good thing, however the check in is horrendously long (min 1hr) as he tells you everything about Naples. Some people do appreciate it however not after a long day of travelling and you just...

Giovanni will become your adopted uncle when you stay here and he goes so much more out of his way to make your time in Naples enjoyable than anyone else ever would. He texted me the morning I was arriving with directions, places to eat along the way and welcomed me to call him anytime I had any issues or...

Host Mr Giovanni is very passionate about Naples and its surrounding. He'll help in figuring out your itinerary. A well equipped kitchen is there. Washing machine can be used. Free WiFi in common room. In the 8 seater, space is just sufficient for all. No storage in room. A little far from Napoli centrale, coast, and other major attractions. Though...

My partner and I stayed at Giovanni's in the summer of 2015 as part of our backpacking trip across Europe. Giovanni's was close to the main train station, and conveniently located in Naples (walking distance to everything/transit). The hostel consisted of bunk bed style arrangements and was very safe and homey. Giovanni himself was a terrific host that gave us...

Giovanni's is without a doubt the best hostel in which i have stayed. It is run by Giovanni (obviously) and he does everything he can to try and make your stay in Naples amazing. I'd recommend doing at least 4 days here because of all the things he will have you doing. He also is a great cook. We were...

I have been been in quite a few hostels this last few years but this one is definitely the friendliest, more welcoming and more comfortable place I have visited. It's a modest place with no luxuries, but the price is amazing and the staff is incredible. Giovanni will explain everything you need to know about Naples and about where to...
