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.

This hostel was in a good location, the staff were very nice and the beds were comfortable. Breakfast is free which is nice. Don’t know if it’s just the time we went but it was a total lad fest which was a bit off- putting. Overall good stay :)

I'm 19 and solo-traveling for the first time. Not only did the hostel make me feel safe, but it had such a welcoming atmosphere. I felt at home, the second I walked in. The staff were so lovely and seemed to truly care about the travelers. I made some friends that I probably would've never met otherwise, and was able to explore the city. It was truly an experience I will never forget!

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!
