You can reach the hostel in many ways: from the Central Station there are two underground lines, the Circumvesuviana (the most regular, every 20 minutes) and the Trenitalia (faster but less frequent). Then you can take a bus (recommended just if you arrive between 11pm and 5am, because of the traffic) or a Taxi cab.
Circumvesuviana line (recommended one):
take a train directed to Pompei/Sorrento/Poggiomarino via Scafati (ticket 1.50 - not the trains marked DD on the time signs that will not stop here!), and stop in Portici Via Libert.
Once out from that station, turn on the right and cover the brief way till Via Libert, then turn left and go down till the big square called Piazza San Ciro. Our street, Via Bellucci Sessa, is the first on the right of the big church: 20meters and you get our main entrance on the right (house number 22).
Cicrumvesuviana trains leave every 20 minutes, from 7am till 9.30pm.
take a train for Portici (the final direction can vary) then get off at Portici-Ercolano (one or three stops depending on the train). When you exit from the station, just go straight in front of you till you reach the big square called S.Ciro. Our street, Via Bellucci Sessa, is the first on the right of the big church: 20meters and you get our main entrance on the right (house number 22).
If you arrive later than 11pm, you can take a night bus leaving from Naples Central Station square (opposite from the station entrance), line # 455, it has a stop right in Piazza San Ciro. Our street, Via Bellucci Sessa, is the first on the right of the big church: 20meters and you get our main entrance on the right (house number 22). Be patient because sometimes these buses can pass also 30mins distant one from the other.
If you get by car, once arrived near Naples take the motorway to Salerno and leave it in Portici exit. At the first fork turn on the left, and go all over the downhill called Via Diaz till his ending, then turn again on the left: you'll get in Piazza San Ciro, leave your car and take the first street on the right of the big church: 20meters and you get our main entrance on the right (house number 22).
Beware of Taxis! They are very expensive and they always try to cheat tourists, asking incredible fares, and doing stupid long journeys. BEFORE you enter in it, ask for arriving at 'Portici Piazza San Ciro' and how much it will cost: from the central station it shouldn't be more than 30 euros by night, from the airport no more than 35 euros, in total. If they ask a lot more, say NO, and try another one. If you have no choice, threaten him you'll call the Police (dial 112 from any mobile).
take the 'Alibus' bus (ticket 3) and get off in Central Station square, then follow the directions above..
Portici is a quiet and clean neighbourhood south of Naples, with a lovely fisherman's harbor, easy to reach in 20 minutes (one metro) from the central station! Ideally located for those who want to visit Naples downtown but also Pompeii and Vesuvius in one day! Or Sorrento and Capri! From Naples central station: go downstairs, take the Circumvesuviana metro line toward Pompei/Sorrento and get off after 20 minutes. You will find us in 10 minutes walking!
