I went to this hostel today to book a room. The front desk employee was awesome, he was very helpful and even got my room cleaned so that I could check in early after a long day. I waited in the common room. The guys lurking in the common room are very creepy and made me feel extremely unsafe! I...

I read a lot of reviews about this hostel and you would think that the place was falling apart which isn't true at all. Firstly, to get there: Exit the train station and turn right. There will be a road that goes through a tunnel. Take this road and once you are out of the tunnel go right up the...

Warm water was a luxury, cold water sometimes was missing, no heat, very poor wifi, poor cleaning, thin walls,. Avoid it! What could I say more? It you want to pay for NOTHING choose this hostel. Its a nice piece of crap.

We came her with a group of students from Rome, around 50. Luckily, we only had to share our rooms with peers. We mostly spent our time around and about Naples, and only had to be in the hostel for sleeping and breakfast. Breakfast wasn't anything special, merely a cornetto and some coffee (for which you usually had to pay...

No lockers, no ac, rooms only have 3 keys for 8 people. Area dodgy as hell and the way to this "hostel" is even worse. Weird dudes hanging around the common area. Open wifi works in common area. There's a reason why they have vacancies this time of year.

A depressing and institutional feeling building inside and out. Behind the Mergellina station so noise of train brakes is regular. Mergellina seemed nice but the hostel was not in a great part, I would have been nervous walking to it after dark. Clean and wifi are the only positives I can think to say about it, the building gave me...

The hostel is really cheap in comparison with the other hostels in Naples. In my opinion the standard is not bad, considering how much you need to pay. Of course there are some drawbacks, e.g. only one socket in the room for 8 people or lack of lockers, but I need to admit it's clean and the staff is very...

If you want to avoid the noise of the Naples than this hostel is enough. The atmosphere is not good. It is dated. For a one night stay is good enough. The breakfast is not the best. They have wi-fi, although the connection is not the best in all parts of the hostel. The staff is nice, but I've seen...

Stayed in the hostel on 24,25th August. The location is meant for those who want to avoid the noise in the city since it's located near to the sea in merglina part of Naples. The staff during my stay were 3 very old guys who help you depending on their mood at that time. The 8 bed dorm was extremely...
