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.

    I had a very very nice stay at the hostel! Very friendly staff, flexible with check-in and check-out. Perfect Location for exploring Naples, very close to metro station which takes you to the central station. Lovely ambience and a lot of space to hang out in the hostel :)

    We loved staying at this hostel! Especially the staff is amazing. They made us feel welcome the first moment we came through the door. The hostel itself has a homely vibe, bathrooms and dorms are kept clean, the breakfast is good as well. My personal highlight: the piano! Thanks for everything! We will be back :-)

    After coming from Rome where I stayed in an uptight hostel run by a neurotic woman who ordered people to put their mask on while drinking tea (The Beehive, Rome), The Hostel of the Sun was a breath of fresh air. Relaxed, well run and friendly. Highly recommended!

    super comfy hostel - very friendly and helpful staff, delicious breakfast and really good coffee included, nice common area (feels like being in a living room) and is very easy to get in touch with others :) location is very good, walking distance to port (e.g. to catch a ferry to the islands), approx. 20-30 mins walk to the historic centre, metro station is close-by as well

    One of the best hostel I have ever stayed at especially when it comes to meeting fellow travellers. Staff and guests were super friendly and I felt comfortable there from the first minute. The breakfast included in the booking was also really good and they offer both a standard and a vegan version.

    really good security and great atmosphere, just know if you're walking from the train station and have all your stuff with you, it's a trek. since the sidewalks are cobblestone it's not easy to drag your suitcase across it. the hostel itself is great we just had to do a ton of walking while we were there

    Mostly a good stay, the breakfasts were especially nice and the staff kept the place clean. But covid measures seemed a bit half-a***d. No masks needed within the place, no real social distance measures, just hand sanitiser dispensers everywhere. Would come back after the ol' virus is out of the picture though, location is brilliant and staff are good dudes.

    Very good hostel, the way they should be. good atmosphere, helpful staff with cheerful attitude. Breakfast is a plus and really helps. A bit noisy to sleep, but you know, it's a hostel and they play music. Special thanks to Sara, with her amazing food recommendations and places (She said Ravello is better than Amalfi and it really is). Another special thanks to Clara, who plays the piano and sings like a pro. Very good experience. Highly recommend.

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
