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.

Overview

At Hostel of the Sun, we’re more than just a place to rest your head. That’s why we’re a firm favourite for travellers in Naples. With free breakfast every day, communal dinners and a guest kitchen for whipping up new recipes, you won't go hungry! Relax with a drink in our sociable bar, in the common room, or over a chess challenge in the games room and see who you end up chatting to. Our free Wi-Fi is super handy for planning your itinerary, or get some tips from our friendly and helpful staff – we can also help you organise a boat trip around Capri.

Location

Our hostel overlooks the bay, so get ready for some views that are pretty as a postcard. We're 10 minutes from the busy streets around Piazza Trieste e Trento and the artworks in the Galleria di Palazzo Zevallos Stigliano. It's a 2-minute walk to the ferry terminal and the bus terminal for Pompeii and the Amalfi Coast, so you can easily continue your adventure. It’s easy to reach us from the airport – just jump on the Alibus and get off at the last stop, Molo Beverello. From there, we’re about a 100m walk.

Our mixed dorms vary in size – perfect for both quiet and more sociable trips. If you're after a little space, we’ve got private rooms for two to four people, which also have private bathrooms. Each bed comes with free linen, a handy USB plug and reading light, so you can charge your gadgets ahead of a busy day sightseeing. Thanks to our heating and air con, you’ll be comfortable whatever the season.

Extras and activities

Once you’ve checked in, stow your stuff away in our spacious safety lockers so you can check out Naples' museums, piazzas (and of course pizza!). Or stay in and get stuck into a serious game of table football or a board game. Our casual communal areas mean it’s easy to get chatting to your neighbours.

    I’ve been to many hostels in my life and this one is absolutely the best. It is located minutes walk to the port for day trips to the island. The room was clean, air conditioned, and quiet. I travelled with my teen daughter and we booked a double room - we lucked out and got a queen sized bed and a private bathroom. The room was on the 6th floor but there is an elevator if you don’t want to walk. The staff are very friendly and helpful. If you need laundry done staff do it for 8 euros.

    I had a great experience here and would definitely recommend it to anyone going to Naples. The staff are some of the nicest I’ve ever met and they take the time to actually learn guests’ names! The common area near reception is always full of people who are excited to meet new people and hang out. The hostel is fairly conveniently located so that you’re close enough to all the sites, but not so close that it becomes disruptive.

    Really loved staying at this Hostel! Sad it was for only one night. Overall clean, comfy beds and great free breakfast! Only thing is the shower drain was slightly blocked and the bathroom floor was always wet. But really such a nice vibe and good place to stay! Would definitely go back.

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
