The staff pleases to aim, but sometimes they pretend to be a bit more knowledgeable than they are. There directions make it seem like an easy trek and when you finally do it, you're so lost you want to cry. A little patience for those less experiences travellers would be nice! The laundry was a great surprise and the 24hour check in is always a bonus!
Luca & his staff were awesome! They gave the hostel a really good friendly vibe! Nicest hostel staff I've EVER come across! The location was easy to find because they gave excellent directions to get there & the location was fantastic! I would TOTALLY recommend this hostel!
Staff made this trip great! They are loud and familial, get to know them! Have drinks there, its a great group.
All I have to say this hostel is the best hostel in Italy. The owner of the hostel and other staff are very helpful and friendly. Especially Mrs. Mola (Berrak Mola) is the best :) If I visit Naples again, I will definitelly stay this hostel.
You'd be crazy to stay anywhere else. The rooms were nice, comfortable, and clean. The staff here though is what makes this hostel so great. They make you feel welcome and give you pointers on where to go and where to eat. As a solo traveler I appreciate good common areas and this place definitely has a couple. One night they cooked a big free pasta dinner for everyone. Did I also mention they also have €3 mojito night? One more reason to stay here? The staff are all sexy;-) till next time!
The best part was staff. They were so kind and offer useful information. The location was also good. It was near Porta Nuova, and the place was quite safe. They also have plenty of bathroom outside the room, so you won't have to wait for bathroom.
Great hostel - extremely friendly and helpful staff! There wasn't many shared showers but if you got there at the right time you rarely had to wait. Good communal areas and a nice atmosphere! The hostel also put on different things at night throughout the week which was great!
Great first night for the money. Rooms have air con. A must for me. Staff very friendly and helpful. Rooms clean and lockers with a key were good. Lounge area pretty chilled. Would recommend as was exactly as described
Lucca is hilarious and very charismatic. The whole staff gets an A+ at Hostel of the Sun! The rooms are clean and comfortable with good A/C. The restrooms are large and clean. The best part is that the common areas (including the bar) are small enough to encourage socializing but not so small that you feel crowded. The only downside is that the rooms don't lock but it's really not a big deal because of the large lockers.
Lovely place, a feeling of freedom, great place to socialise as well.

Upon arriving after a long day of travel we arrived and were greeted by Luca, a real champion. My only regret is not trying the pizza he told us would make us never want to leave. Great recommendations of things to do. Awesome facilities. Great room an very convenient location. Lots of activities offered! Also it was very hot when we arrived and he gave us water which was very unnecessary but greatly appreciated! A premium host!

One of the best hostels that I stayed at during this trip. Very friendly staff and the hostel bar is an amazing place to meet and chill with fellow travellers. I loved this hostel so much that I might just go to Naples just to stay at this place again.
Great staff, good security, good value for money and very social. Atmosphere is so so because it is split floors in a building and feels a bit dark.
This hostel was fabulous! From the minute I walked through the door I felt welcome! They carried my heavy rucksack to my room for me, and also sat down, asked about what I wanted to do in Naples and highlighted particular places for me. When I had an issue with fellow roommates, they were very helpful and accommodated me immediately in a better room! They were extremely helpful for any tips on places to eat, visit and trips to other places surrounding Naples. Kitchen facilities were good.
This was a great hostel, I would definitely recommend it. It is a very close walk to the port (we went to capri) and close to the metro station. The staff were nice and helpful, and the girl who worked behind the bar was friendly and made great drinks.
Staff were excellent; so friendly and helpful.
Loved this hostel and Naples so much I overstayed for two more nights. Super friendly and chill staff, great location and really fun people! Easily one of the best hostels I've ever stayed!
I loved staying here. It has a comfortable and friendly vibe. The bar is open until 11:30 and it has a good social vibe not a party hostel. Staff are always super helpful with whatever questions you need. How to get to Pompei, etc.
AC was a gift from God when we were there. Had nice bathrooms that were quite clean. The staff were friendly and had good tips on where to go and what to see in Naples. Wifi was excellent. Free breakfast was nice. Had laundry service, but it was 5 euro. We had a private room and the room was very large. The bed was made everyday for us, a real hotel atmosphere for a hostel price.
Great hostel . Really central. Made you feel t home . Give great advice on what to do. One of my fav hostel best atmosphere
