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.

    Friendly staff, plenty of places to socialize. Few minutes walking to the old city. They provide great lockers under the bed (locks available to borrow). My 4 pax room had its own bathroom, which was really great!! If I ever go to Naples again, I'll definitely return here.

    My friends and I loved the Hostel of the Sun! The staff was so friendly and accommodating! We met so many amazing people there that we will cherish. The location was ideal for everything we wanted to do. There was yummy breakfast every morning that the staff would make for all the guests. It is truly an amazing place to stay for people who want to meet kind souls and have a sense of community.

    I've enjoyed my stay! The staff is cool. Really good if you travel alone because in the common room there's a youth atmosphere and there's always a group of people to meet and talk to. 100% recommendable!

    This is my favourite hostel every , its just what a hostel should be ,relaxed ,fun , an experience, an inexpensive bed , a refuge for tired travellers , a home away from home, an information exchange bureaux. This unique atmosphere has been created by Luca and his team who seem to understand and embrace wholeheartedly the hosteling ethos. I came for one night and stayed for 9, I think that says it all. Thank you guys for being my temporary home and springboard to discovering Napoli. Grazie mille

    It’s a nice place to stay, because even though there are always many people around, it’s very calm too. If you wanna have your own space it’s possible, but it’s easier socializing. The staff is nice too, especially luca. I love the music that they play on breakfast time, and the decoration.

    The team there is incredible and breakfast included. It’s the top floor of a building with other businesses and the lift is paid (only 10 centimes). It’s closer to the main part of the city than most other hostels in Napoli, but trade off it’s a tighter space, so only really one main room for socializing. Check-in also closes I think at midnight which is tough if you’re on a late flight. Great place to meet people though.

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
