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.

    Perfect hostel- great common area to socialize or to chill, loads to do there- cooking, board games, tv with games or netflix. Staff is absolutely amazing- one energetic explosion other funny af, if asked nicely can get coffee at any time. Loved that most of the rooms are one floor down from main area, so quiet for resting. Last but not least the location is on spot- 5min from port or airport bus, close to seaside promenade, city center, spanish quarters etc. Thank you ❤️

    The staff was very welcoming, even if you are travelling alone you don't feel like it. The best part of staying there was how staff was nice to you specially Sara and Paola. Apart from that they had nice room with all facilities. I would recommend it. I lived with a friend and we bought the whole room to ourselves. Also in the breakfast they had vegan option which was incredibly thoughtful on their behalf.

    We enjoyed our stay at Hostel of the Sun. Main areas of Naples were easily accessible with an enjoyable 10-20 minute walk. They made us breakfast and coffee and the atmosphere was great. We particularly were fond of staff member Sara, who checked us in. She was so accommodating, friendly, and helpful. She showed us lots of places to go in Naples and had great welcoming energy!

    Hostel of the Sun was amazing. The location was near a metro and some ferries, the staff were super nice and obliging, and the it was super easy to meet people here as a solo traveler. The locker under my bed was very spacious, and the overall layout of the place gave the hostel a homey feel. However, in my room, the walls were very thin, and it was hard to fall asleep before 00:30 and sleep in past around 7:30. Thankfully this time frame was a designated quiet time. Altogether awesome place.

    This hostel has a vibrant atmosphere that makes it very easy to speak to and meet people. The staff are absolutely great and the free breakfast is quite substantial and will set you up well for the day. The dorms are a little too cramped for my tastes and for some reason the door makes a loud noise when someone swipes their card. These factors can make sleep difficult. Overall this hostel is memorable and is great value.

    Now, I do not wish that I had to write this, but it has to be said. the owner, is not as kind as the staff that works for the hostel. It makes me upset to write this because of how he treats the staff at the hostel. He has no shame in yelling at his workers in the common area in front of everyone which made everyone feel very uncomfortable. Very unprofessional, rude, and overall a “sour” guy. On my last day, my friend and i cried because of the way he yelled at us :/ staff is gr8.

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
