About Fabric Hostel & Club
Via Bellucci Sessa 22, Portici
Napoli, Italy 80055
Come and stay in the ancient fabrics factory, that worked from 1860 till 20 years ago, now completely renovated as a modern 5 stars hostel!

FH&C is located in Portici, a quiet neighbourhood in the south of Naples, easy to reach in 15 minutes! Ideally located for those who want to visit Naples downtown but also Pompeii and Vesuvius in one day! Or Sorrento and Capri! All you have to do once you're in Naples train station is: go downstairs, take the "Circumvesuviana" metro line toward Pompei/Sorrento and get off after 10 minutes. You'll find us in 5 minutes walking!

You will love this place:

We've derived from the huge halls full of looms, 21 bright and coloured rooms, without changing the nature of the structure, which is a piece of history of the Italian manufacturer.

A big common room (90sq.m.) with sofas and pillows for chatting and relaxing, SatTV, DVD, CD player, 3 computers for FREE INTERNET access, free WI-FI, and PING PONG!

A kitchen to have your own food (fridge, microwave, water boiler, no sink inside)

And the 'Fabric Club', a multifunctional structure that works as restaurant, wine bar, live music club, theatre and dance performances and films projections (top season from oct to may)
A special VERY CHEAP menu is reserved for fabric guests including pasta, meat dishes and salads from 2 to 4 euros! Or, you can have a beer or a glass of wine listening to live music or watching to one of the live performances scheduled, while you stay on the cheapest and most comfy hostel in southern Italy.

Discover how convenient is staying in Portici for your trip, a graceful Naples district much safer and cleaner than Naples downtown, and anyway distant from it just one or three (depending on the line) underground stops. Portici is rich of beautiful gardens and right in the middle between the downtown and the many interesting and historical spots our region offers: Pompeii ruins excavations, Vesuvius Vulcano, the archaelogical area of Ercolano and Oplonti, the Amalfi Coast, the Sorrento Coast, the wonderful islands of Capri, Ischia and Procida. All these just few minutes from Portici on the same underground line that links it with the downtown, that has a stop just 5 minutes walking from the hostel.

Our friendly, helpful and well-trained staff is ready to help you with all your requests and also with any questions you have about your trip.

Getting there:
You can reach the hostel in many ways: from the Central Station there are two underground lines, the Circumvesuviana (the most regular, every 10 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 - not the trains marked DD on the time signs that will not stop here!), and stop in Portici Via Libertà.
Once out from that station, turn on the right and cover the brief way till Via Libertà, 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 10-15 minutes, from 5am till 11pm.

Trenitalia line:
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 or 457, they have 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 25 euros by night, from the airport no more than 30 euros, in total. If they ask alot more, say NO, and try another one. If you have no choice, threaten him you'll call the Police (dial 112 from any mobile).

From the airport: take the 'Alibus' bus (ticket 3€) and get off in Central Station square, then follow the directions above.
