Very modern hostel, great staff but was very quiet. They do bake fresh so that's a big bonus, never seen that in a hostel before
Staff was the best, very helpful, were flexible when we decided we didn't want to stay in Naples anymore. The location is a little weird and weird that it's in an office building and split on floors amongst that. The common area was nice: lobby, kitchen, little tiny bar. Bathrooms were fine. Wasn't a fan at all of Naples, but the hostel wasn't too bad they were passionate about trying to have us like their city. If you have to visit Naples, then this place would be a good option.
It is the staff that make this hostel so fun to stay at. They are friendly, informative and so helpful. They are great at socialising with the travellers and creating an awesome atmosphere. The breakfast in the morning is free, they host free dinners and you can organise a lot of activities through the desk. It has a fully stocked bar and the travellers are extremely social in the common area. Naples itself isn't the nicest place but if you are coming through I would recommend staying here.
You can just lay back and read a book in the lobby or chill out and socialise in the small bar with a very small yet good-view balcony. Its peaceful and really homely.
Lovely, lovely people! Great atmosphere which encourages socialising between guests, I felt very welcome!
Very friendly staff, with fun people to be around, to talk and to have fun, like Clara, Sabrina, Kailee and many other funny characters. The bathrooms are somewhat clean and also the kitchen, and the bar area with the guitar definetly tunes up the enviroment. Excellent breakfast and the location is perfect, close to bus stations, to ferries and the major streets of Napoli. Hope i can come back!
Pretty cute hostel. Really relaxed atmosphere and most people were really friendly. The double room was quite big and modern and the hostel is quite close to everything. We came in pretty upset that our backpacks with everything in them had been left in luggage storage at the train station for the night but the lady at the front desk was so kind, she ordered us pizza and was a huge help.
Very nice Staff, nice rooms, friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Close to the harbor. Absolutely recommendable for everyone (who doesn't have a problem when it gets noisy in the evening at the hostel party bar...I loved it! :-) wants to explore the city and meet new people...
Hostel of The Sun is located in the city centre, near to Castel Nuovo and to metro station Università. Staff is very helpful: you can ask for a piece of advice about what to see, where to eat and so on. Wi-Fi signal is not so strong, but it wasn't a big problem: you can use two laptops for free. Very good breakfast.
Excellent hostel, staff were very nice and helpful. My trip would have been very different without their guidance and knowledge. The free dinners and breakfast was great and a good way to meet fellow travelers.

The owner and staff are extremely nice and helpful. The place has clean bathrooms and a cool atmosphere. The only picky thing about the place is there are only 3 bathrooms. The location is close to the docks and Piazza Victoria. It is a little hard to find at first but it was a good experience. They even hook you up with Kayak Napoli. You get to kayak in Naples for 25 euro. Awesome experience. Note* The taxis in town are very cheap. From the train station is a little more expensive.
Had a great time here, wish we couldve stayed longer! But you need to fix the lock on floor 5 we wasted a lot of time having to move our luggage around and everytime we needed to get to our room.
Booked this last minute because of a botched CS experience, but it was so great to be here. The staff is really nice and give you so much information about things to do in Napoli. Would definitely recommend.
My stay at Hostel of the Sun was by far the best hostel experience I have had during my time in Europe. All the staff were very friendly and helpful, and the atmosphere was great. I particularly enjoyed the free pasta nights. I look forward to visiting Napoli again and staying with you at Hostel of the Sun!

Very well run place. A few too many under-21 americans staying there for my liking, but it was the kind of hostel that makes you wish you'd scheduled more time in Naples.
The staff was helpful and social. I spent many hours talking to them and learning about the city. The location was great: we could get anywhere we needed. The lockers were a perfect size and I never had a problem with noisy roommates. Overall, a wonderful experience.
Great place to stay, staff very friendly! The Capri boat tour was fun, although it took us close to 2 hours of transportation to get to where it started. Great hostel overall!
