    An amazing hostel in Naples


    The hostel looks quite newly renovated, and it looks clean most of the time. There are a few floors of hostel rooms on the adjacent building and there is a lift if you have large bags to carry. It doesn't feel like a hostel that generally we most would think of hostels to be. I had the opportunity to change rooms there during my stay- Room number 5 is a 2 double bunk bed with a toilet in the room! This was a big bonus sine the other rooms share the toilets outside in the main hall. There are airconditioning vents on the ceilings but they didn't turn them on. The second day I stayed in Room 7 but strangely enough this was located in room 6. Room 7 was a single bunk bed, so it's just for 2. Room 6 was a 3 double bunk bed. These 2 rooms didn't have toilets in them, and most prone to noise from speeding traffic from the main road (even up to 3 am). In summer you have to open the windows for ventilation so this was unavoidable.

    Location was not near the city centre or attractions, but this wasn't a problem for me as this was walking distance from the metro station. This part of town was quiet except for the street noise. It seems quite safe here as compared to other places in Naples. The only drawback to this is there are no stores that 'look' like they're open for business. Certainly no supermarkets or tabacchi by walking distance.

    Unique Quality: Apart from it's chic look for a hostel, the breakfast is the most unforgettable thing that I have seen from staying at hostels... Nothing seems close!

    Directions: On the Metronapoli, head for Line 2 (blue) toward Pozzuoli.
    Transfer at Cavour to Line 1 (yellow) toward Piscinola.
    Get off at Salvator Rosa. Take escalators up and follow exit signs to Santa Croce.
