Liked: Very safe feeling to the place. Also, quite clean. The breakfast is pretty good considering the "breakfasts" offered by other hostels. Wifi pretty much everywhere.

Disliked: it's an odd thing to complain about but the communal bathrooms were a little dimly lit. If there was a light above the stalls, I'd be very happy.

Liked: The staff at this hostel were so friendly, very helpful and just lovely welcoming people. The dorms were big and very clean. The hostel had a kitchen bar and garden to relax in. The location wasn't the greatest but it was close to the metro. I enjoyed my stay at this hostel and would recommend to my fellow travelers.

Disliked: Nothing :)

Liked: I liked the vibe and the friendly atmosphere, with great staff who made me feel at home.

Disliked: It is a bit of a walk from the centre up a hill, but that is not super important as I made friends who made the journey not so bad! The breakfast, especially the bread, could be improved.

Liked: Staff is friendly and have lots of recommendations if you ask them for suggestions. The hostel is pretty clean but there doesn't seem to be AC anywhere. Breakfast is included and there's food, drinks and snacks for sale but its cheaper if you go to the store down the street.

Disliked: Large hostel with lots of people so the kitchen gets very crowded and messy

Liked: The staff is the nicest than any other hostel that i visit before. The garden is a good place to relax in the afternoon; and also you can take cheap drinks in the bar :)!!! The atmosfera of the place is very good and i meet a lot of funny people there. The kitchen is very big and confortable. The hostel is also quite near to the historical center, like 10 minutes walking and naples is an incredible place to visit and taste great food and ice cream.

15 July 2013 Anca would recommend this property

Liked: I liked especially the courtyard: taking the breakfast in the morning sun there is very nice, and in the evening also, chilling with friends. The sheets, bathrooms, everything was clean and nice. The hostel is really "colorful", fun and friendly in all aspects.

Disliked: Some little discomfort: on Sunday when we took our breakfast, there was some basic food but no clean plates or glasses or cutlery and it took a while till we realized we have to clean them ourselves and they weren't many anyway. Also, our room (with 10 beds) had 2 windows facing the main street and during the night it's incredibly loud and you cannot close the windows because it's too hot. For the second night I bought ear plugs.
