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...

We had high expectations from Giovanni having heard what a great host he is and he exceeded our expectations and made our stay the absolute best. Aside from the amazing food he cooked us at no extra charge, he fostered an environment that made the other residents feel like family. The location of the hostel was perfect for seeing the...

From the moment we walked through the door Giovanni did not stop being amazing. He greeted us with a cup of cold water and sat us down. The first thing he asked us was whether we had eaten lunch. When we told him we had not, he swiftly offered to make us some pasta. He made pasta for about 8...
