Hostelworld says

Hostel of the Sun is in an excellent location overlooking the bay and is just 10 minutes' walk from Piazza Trieste e Trento and the Galleria di Palazzo Zevallo Stigliano. In fact, it's an easy walk to all of the historic centre of Naples. This hostel features a wide range of private rooms and dorms and Hostelworld guests have compared it favourably to a hotel. We like that the friendly staff have great suggestions for local restaurants and sights off the beaten track.

    Good enough and you get what you pay for here. Could be social but a lot of families and large groups were traveling here when I stayed. Common areas close at midnight. Odd but safe location, close to ports. Bring shower shoes. Super helpful and friendly staff with great recommendations. Thank you!

    The free breakfast was awesome every morning and it was in a perfect location, but our AC unit had to vent outside the patio door, so having the door open did not really help with air flow. The shower was a bit mouldy as well, but otherwise was a very nice stay! Staff was amazing!

    Very Good

    You get what you pay for. Don’t expect anything extremely modern or whatever. Hostel is divided into two parts, few rooms are on the floor where reception is, the rest is on another floor so it’s kinda difficult to meet someone. My room had a balcony which was nice but it was really difficult to open it. The glass wall in the shower was missing so every time someone go to take a shower we had a flood on the floor. But the location is really good! In a safe area.

Hostel of the Sun says

Here at Hostel of the Sun we\'ve come up with a load of original ways to see the sights around the area. Bored of walking tours? We\'ll get you on a horse up Vesuvius, in a kayak around the Bay of Naples and eating Sfogliatella and drinking coffee with the locals! Back at the hostel everything is included in the price you see online - Wi-Fi, computers, linen and breakfast - so there are no hidden costs when you arrive here!
I think we set ourselves apart by offering great customer service. Actually, we just care about our guests. Whether it\'s helping them save money, getting somewhere in the quickest way or even doing their washing for them, we\'ll really try our best to help them out with anything.
We\'re located exactly in the centre of Naples, a short tram ride from the station (â'¬1.20), 10 minutes\' walking distance to the old town, two minutes from the main square and the shopping areas. But most importantly we are fantastically located for all the day trips that our guests can do around the area - we are about two minutes\' walk from the port where boats go to Capri and the other islands, seconds from public transport to Pompeii and the Amalfi Coast.
As for my personal favourite, there are so many things to visit in the area that it\'s hard to choose! I suppose it has to be Pompeii though. The levels of preservation of these ruins are just incredible, and there\'s no way you can come to Italy without taking a day to roam the streets of this ancient Roman city.
We\'ve seen a big change in the age group of people staying at the hostel. A larger range of ages have realised the advantages of staying in hostels rather than budget hotels, from meeting other travellers to getting the best local advice from the experts - us! Too many hotels hand you the keys to your room and say \'ciao\' but this isn\'t our style. Whether you\'ve got five days or five hours in our city we\'ll help you make the most of it.
We have both dorm and private rooms available for people with disabilities, and all areas of the hostel are easily accessible; no tricky stairs or tight spaces. The hostel is located on the seventh floor but of course we have a lift! Luca, Owner
