This place was great! They have everything you need! The staff was amazing, they talked with us and helped us plan our day there. They are all so flexible and kind, staying here was so nice!
Awesome place, super friendly staff. Clean rooms. Great place to stay!
We had an excellent time at Hostel of the Sun. We stayed in a private, the beds were very comfortable and everything was very clean. The staff were very nice and let us stay a few hours in the lounge after we had checked out! We hope to be back soon!
They have very friendly and accommodating staff. Location is very convenient. The hostel is clean but I think it is just too small for the number of guests and so hard to maintain cleanliness in the toilet and you can smell the toilet in the corridors. Breakfast area is also too small so you can hardly sit or move to get your food at the buffet table. Also, probably it's just my own fault, but kinda hard to use the elevator the first time I came in. Used up all my €0.10 and less coins!
We had THE BEST time at this hostel! Almost everyone who was there ended up booking an extra night because the atmosphere was so great. Everyone that works there is incredible, and are usually up to take the whole hostel out dancing! There's free dinner sometimes, cheap drinks and the best vibes. Anyone who has hesitations about going to Naples should stay at this hostel, because it's a guaranteed good time. Don't skip Naples because of it's reputation!
I had a wonderful time at this hostel. They arrange many great tours and have a wonderful common area to meet new people. Would recommend this hostel as a MUST if you're in Naples
I had a GREAT time at Hostel of the Sun. Enjoyed the staff interaction from the initial point of email, enjoyed fellow travelers in the comfy used couch area which allowed you to slump down after a hard day tromping, the easy access to cheap beer, the Horse riding tour of Vesuvius available through the hostel, the good breakfast, the great eating and local touring advice from the staff... my stay at Hostel of the Sun in Naples was the cherry on the cake after a three week tour in Italy!
Probably the best hostel I've been to so far ! A great way to meet new people. Excellent atmosphere. The hostel is very well located, and a huge effort is made by the staff so that travelers feel well and have a good time. The hostel provides breakfast, trip advices, organizes social events, outdoor activities...

A brilliant little hostel. Luca and the rest of the staff do a brilliant job of making the hostel a great place to be. They have a great knowledge of the area and you can see that they are passionate about Naples. The cosy common room area helps with the socialising. The rooms are of a good size and the shower facilities are good. Breakfast is standard and they do nice free dinners a couple of times a week. I would definitely stay here again when I return to Naples.
Everything as a hostel should have and be. Nothing over or under the top, which makes the overall experience good.
Thank you for the Visit I had a thoroughly rewarding time in Naples. The staff were tentative to my needs and were disciplined, kind and helpful.Although I was at time a little demanding but they helped the situation with their highly optimistic and enthusiastic attitude. They were always very welcoming after each day's adventure and showed much love and kindness. They were always very reasonable in satisfying my requests from day to day and played some great European tunes too. Thank you again.

Staff were amazing especially Luca. Make sure you have 5c ready for the lift.
All the staff were very welcoming and friendly. Special thanks to Sabrina - when I checked in I told her I was planning to go that evening's Napoli game, she told me where to get the tickets and who else in the hostel was going. A group of us went, including Sabrina, and we all went for food and drink afterwards. The whole hostel has a really friendly and relaxed atmosphere. It's not a crazy party hostel, so you can still get some sleep. But it's a great place to meet people and explore from
Clean, convenient, cheap... Lots of bathrooms, a bar and 24h reception are just some of the strengths of this great hostel! The free breakfast was exellent! The receptionists are really cool, helpful and international. Even got to speak some Finnish :) Also a great cheap pizza place right around the corner.
The staff make this place, Luca is a force of nature, all the staff are so helpful and do a great job with big smiles on their faces.
Very nice staff, sometimes free meals, good location. Harriot has a nice extended back ;)

Staying in this hostel made me wish I was staying in Naples longer! Lorena was so incredibly kind funny and helpful. Next time I'll definitely make it to that archeological museum! Thanks for a fun stay. The free dinner was tasty and it was super easy to make friends in the common area and meet new people. I'll see you when I return!
Just really appreciate the friendliness and professionalism of the staff. By far the best service I've gotten from any hostel in Europe.
Awesome staff, great location. Clean and comfortable hostel.
Very friendly, very informative and free dinner :) Luca tries to include everybody and all staff are lovely
