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.

Great ambience and friendly staff! Very strategically located for island trips from Naples and most city landmarks. Definitely recommended. The breakfast was also nice given the price.

Hostel of the Sun says

Qui a Hostel of the Sun ci siamo inventati un sacco di modi originali per esplorare Napoli e dintorni. Annoiato delle solite escursioni a piedi? Bene, ti porteremo a cavallo fino al Vesuvio, in un kayak intorno alla baia di Napoli e a mangiare le sfogliatelle e bere il caffè con la gente del posto! Ritornando all\'ostello, tutto è incluso nel prezzo che vedi online - Wi-Fi, computer, biancheria e prima colazione - non ci sono costi nascosti. Penso che ci contraddistingue il nostro ottimo servizio clienti. In realtà, abbiamo a cuore solo i nostri ospiti. Che si tratti di aiutare a risparmiare denaro, a raggiungere una localitá in modo rapido o addirittura fare il bucato, faremo sempre del nostro meglio per aiutarli. Siamo situati proprio nel centro di Napoli, a breve distanza di tram dalla stazione, a 10 minuti a piedi dal centro storico, a due minuti dalla piazza principale e dalle zone commerciale. Ma soprattutto siamo il punto di partenza per tutte le escursioni giornaliere che i nostri ospiti possono fare in zona - siamo a circa due minuti a piedi dal porto per le barche dirette a Capri e le altre isole, e dai mezzi pubblici per Pompei e la Costiera Amalfitana. Per quanto riguarda il mio luogo preferito, ci sono tante cose da visitare che è difficile scegliere ma suppongo sia Pompei. I livelli di conservazione di queste rovine sono semplicemente incredibili, e non si può venire in Italia senza spendere un giorno vagando per le strade di questa antica città romana. Abbiamo visto un grande cambiamento nella fascia di etá dei nostri ospiti, l\'etá si é estesa perché la gente ha capito i vantaggi di soggiornare negli ostelli piuttosto che in hotel economici; qui potrai conoscere altri viaggiatori ad ottenere preziosi consigli. Abbiamo sia dormitori che camere private disponibili per le persone disabili, tutte le zone del centro di accoglienza sono facilmente accessibili, senza scale ingannevoli o spazi stretti. L\'ostello si trova al settimo piano, ma ovviamente abbiamo un ascensore!
