Yes, it’s another hostel called Art Hostel (yawn) but there’s actually a reason why it’s called that, aside from the usual scrawlings and daubed walls of other places. It’s actually really close to the Academy of Fine Arts, which makes for a very fun and arty wander around.

The hostel itself is set inside a historic building, which is cool. And though it might not be the chicest hostel you’ve ever stayed in, but if you’re looking for a decent all-round good place to stay close to public transport, this is a solid choice for a budget hostel in Naples.

Want to save the world and stay hydrated? Single-use plastic bottles are a huge threat to the oceans and planet – Be a part of the solution and invest in a filter water bottle.

The GRAYL GEOPRESS water bottle is the ONLY all-in-one filter water bottle setup you’ll need. We use it on our own adventures to purify often nasty looking water and it does a beautiful job – we have yet to get sick! This is what the whole Broke Backpacker team uses- in mountains, cities, jungles – we love it – it’s a total game changer

A little bit old school with its dark wood furniture, random paintings of landscapes, kitsch bedding, general B&B sorta vibe, this budget hostel in Naples is nevertheless a decent place to stay. It’s chilled and quiet: the perfect antidote for too much partying.

There’s a restaurant on the ground floor so you can get yourself some food when you’re hungry (that IS when you’re supposed to eat, right?) and the location is good – right next to a metro station. All-round pretty decent.
