Info & Description

Come relax in La Controra's spacious garden among palms and citruses while being entertained by their enthusiastic staff singing Neapolitan melodies! This is the only luxury hostel in town. Almost like a hotel with prices of a hostel!

This hostel is a former monastery turned into a hostel. The lounge bar is used for contemporary art exhibitions and events.

La Controra Hostel Naples' recently renewed the floor of the rooms, placing art sculptures in the floor tiles featuring sea shells, Neapolitan coffee pots, garlic and chilli peppers, 'ex-voto' and red coral horns (ethnic Neapolitan esoterica and good luck charms!).

    Great location and a very nice staff. However we have booked a private room and it was totally not worth the price. The shower was broken, hot water was not available. The double bed had two single matress, what made the it really hard to sleep in two people on it, as they would fall apart all night long. The room was not very clean either. The staff and the place was really cool, but I would not recommend booking the private room at all, as there were many better options in town for a lower price. p.s: I asked for a hairdryer and 2 of them were broken. I had to wait a day for someone to stop using the third one that was working for me to be able to us e it.

    The best hostel ever! The staff is really friendly and helpful. The hostel is near the metro, they have a good breakfast and a bar with normal prices. :)

  3. Matt From Australia On November 30, -0001

    Staff very friendly. Bit far from sights but easy by metro. Didn't have air con in our room, just a fan which wasn't advertised. Showers didn't work the best. Not enough keys for rooms. Although area seemed safe, two people got robbed on the street close by. Atmosphere was fantastic. Great having a kitchen, bar and cheap food available. Great courtyard, hang out space and music. Well recommended

  4. Benjamin From France On November 30, -0001

    Helpful and friendly multilingual staff, common areas designed for people to meet (especially with the barbecue on May 1st), possibility to rent laptops, calm location, close enough to city center. Nothing to complain; if I come back in Napoli I'll go there again.

  5. Renske From Netherlands On November 30, -0001

    Really nice hotel and very friendly and helpfull staff. Only minus was that the computers where out of order.

  6. William From USA On November 30, -0001

    Just about everything you expect from a good hostel. Was clean, had helpful staff and a good looking bar and kitchen area. Location isn't the best in my opinion but there's a metro station not too far away.

  7. Nedyalko From Bulgaria On November 30, -0001

    It was wonderful.The stuff is very polite and everything is very comfortable!

  8. Ryan From Philippines On November 30, -0001

  9. Marilyne From Canada On November 30, -0001

    Tres propre. Quelques casiers sont brisés et l'ai climatisé ne fonctionne pas dans toutes les chambres. Il en a été le cas pour nous mais nous avons fait la demande de changer de chambre et la réception a accepté. La terrasse est tres grande et ils offrent un cocktail de bienvenue le soir de votre arrivée!

  10. Evaldas From Lithuania On November 30, -0001

    Great place, although a bit far from the city center. But there is a metro to reach a center, a train station and other places. Separate showers, enough space for cooking, bar, garden, nice staff. Just enjoy :)

  11. Ashley From USA On November 30, -0001

    Very nice staff! The rooms need to be cleaned more. They gave great directions on how to get there - easy on the metro.

  12. Shuk Fan From Hong Kong On November 30, -0001

    Excellent hostel. Clean and comfortable. A fun place to stay at. Helpful and friendly staff. Will love to stay again.

  13. FABIO From Italy On November 30, -0001

    very good hostel!

  14. Freddie From England On November 30, -0001

    Amazing is one thing I can say about this hostel. Not too far away on the metro. Friendly and helpful staff. Enough facilities to suit all. Huge kichen, clean an nice decore, relaxed vibe and chilled tunes. Recomended.

  15. Julie From USA On November 30, -0001

    This hostel is stunningly good. I was a bit overwhelmed by Naples and coming back to the hostel was my favorite part of every day. The staff are so LAID BACK! But they run a clean, fun, cool looking place. The beds are so comfortable and clean and quiet...and if you want noise and fun, you can go down to the yard where they have bbqs and parties now and then. Basically, whether you are going for party or for peace, it's the place, which is unusual. A great refuge in a crazy city! 100 percent all the way.

  16. Amanda From Australia On November 30, -0001

    really clean and well kept hostel. werent alot of showers but were always hot. really close to the metro but not really in the city and the trains stop at 12am. without a doubt would stay here again. the bar isnt always open but we went in non peak time.

  17. Joseph From USA On November 30, -0001

    Very nice set up. Not too far from the historical center. Naples in general is nothing too special but if you decide to visit the city then I recommend this hostel

  18. Kayla From Canada On November 30, -0001

    It was a very clean, chic place to stay, with helpful and kind staff. The location is great, right by the metro and quite at night.

  19. Myriam From Canada On November 30, -0001

    The hostel is really difficult to find, but it's not really far from a metro station. That's the only negative point I have. Staff are really nice, rooms are clean, breakfast is good... I had great time!

  20. Vallasek From Romania On November 30, -0001

    This is the best hostel I've ever stayed in. It's very clean, dorms are nice, the staff is also great, they help you with advices and tips about Naples and surroundings. I especially liked the large common areas, like kitchen and living room, where you can cook and eat your own food, watch tv or movie, play cards and meet other travellers. Breakfast is included in the price, and consists of cereals, marmelade, honey, milk, tea, juice and canned fruit. I can recommend this place to everyone, and for my summer vacation in Naples I will stay here again. 100 of 100 points :)
