Great hostel, the staff were so informative about what to do and see around town. They recommended the pizza street to us and it was seriously the best pizza I have ever eaten! Very clean and an amazing breakfast! Thanks for making Naples an awesome experience!

Arriving in Naples I did no research on what to do or where to go. When I arrived at Hostel of the Sun, I was greeted with enthusiasm and was treated as a friend not a guest. I was told everything I should see during my visit and was helped every morning when I had questions on how to get... More

Very friendly staff. Together with the check-in orientation, they told me the must-visit places in Napoli, together with some restaurant information. Room was 4 people dormitory room. It is comfortable. Hostel staff keeps a dog named "Billy" and he is so cute. I want to hug him again, therefore I may want to visit Napoli again!

Excellent hostel. Extremely friendly staff who are there 24 hours today to help out or just chat, especially if you come back late after partying and have some stories to tell! The best part was checking in and getting a great introduction to Naples. After hearing all the stories of how hectic this city is, most of that seemed over... More

We stayed in this hostel for 2 nights in a private room and enjoyed our stay! We found the staff very friendly and helpful, especially when it came to helping us when we discovered that my girlfriend had lost her passport between there and our previous hotel in Rome. They were more than willing to call our previous hotel to... More

Not sure why it has been certified as the best hostel in Europe.. We were greeted by a cockroach, 2 bathrooms for the whole of the hostel which were absolutely disgusting. The beds were the most uncomfortable we stayed throughout our trip, also giving one of us back ache for the rest of the journey. I give credit to the... More

I had a mixed experience at this hostel so its hard to write a solid review. Firstly, easy to find - really accurate directions from the email confirmation which was brilliant. In a seemingly dodgy part of town super close to the port. Great for ferry transfers but probably not brilliant for solo female travellers. Interesting set up with rooms... More

Napoli has a busy port and this hostel is located in a building housing shipping companies...an unlikely choice of location. However delivers well on this aspect being a stone throw away from the port to catch the ferry to Capri, Sorrento, Pompeii etc and close to the main Bus station to catch the Sita Bus to Amalfi Coast. We stayed... More
