Ostello Bello Napoli is the best new hostel in the world!

Our facility in Naples has indeed won the international HOSCARs Awards 2023 by HostelWorld, the world’s leading hostels industry, for the “The New Kid on the Block” category. Ostello Bello Napoli beat out competition from hostels around the world convincing a panel of experts and the online audience to be the most interesting and popular new facility on an international scale. Ostello Bello Napoli is located right in the historic centre (next to the Toledo station at 10 Via dei Fiorentini) in a magnificent six-storey structure, a bar open 24/7 and two panoramic terraces. Only after one year of activity (it opened in April 2022), Ostello Bello Naples is already a reference point for the city’s youth with a schedule of cultural events with live concerts, book presentations, DJ sets and standup comedy always free of charge.

We are really happy. We had received this award in 2011 for the opening of our first hostel. To win again as the best new facility in the world, 12 years later, means that the love for our work has remained the same as well as the desire to improve day by day.
The great credit for this award goes to the girls and boys who every day work in the hostel. They are doing a fantastic job and now they are now honored as the best in the world. Beautiful isn’t it?

My personal story and the one of Ostello Bello travel in parallel. I went to Milan to study the world of communication and did an initial internship at Ostello Bello in Milan where I immediately felt in love with the energy of that place. After about six months working there I was offered the opportunity to return to my native Naples and follow the opening of the new Ostello Bello in a moment of great energy and renewal for my city. I am now responsible for a team of 15 people almost all Neapolitan and under 30… in the meantime I graduated in languages and cultures for communication just with a thesis on Ostello Bello!
