I stayed in the large dorm here for a few nights and enjoyed it. The staff are helpful, the bar is good, the common area is nice, and breakfast is good. The hostel offers several interesting activities (I took a boat tour of Capri) at very reasonable prices. Very social hostel located near the metro and the airport bus station.

I visited Hostel of the Sun earlier this month and was very satisfied with the kindness of the staff, the room quality and the social life in this hostel. The location near the harbour is great for travel to and from Capri as well. Will definitely consider staying here again when I go back to Napoli!

I had relatively high expectations due to the many awards this hostel has accumulated and I'm pleased to report they were met and often exceeded. The hostel has great facilities, including a quaint bar (thus contributing to a really good atmosphere) and helpful, friendly staff. The room was great, with a private ensuite and air con. The location was good,... More

I arrived in Napoli without having a place to sleep at around 5pm. After scanning for Hostels on the tourist informations site, I decided to check out Hostel of the Sun. The walk from the train station was not really pleasurable since you walk by some of the worst areas of Napoli. Though after arriving I noticed that the area... More

The staff was fantastic. They're so helpful and welcoming. The facilities were clean. The blankets were warm and the sheets and pillows were clean. There was also a pile of extra blankets in the room in case it got too cold - enough blankets were everyone in the room. Wifi was a bit wonky in the room but it was... More

A good trip is based on the experiences you have. Here I encountered helpful, friendly and fun staff! During the daytime they helped me plan excursions to the plethora of nearby stunning sights, towns, islands, historical and cultural centres. In the evenings they made everyone feel welcome and created an open and buzzy atmosphere for all the guest to get... More

This is a fantastic base from which to explore Napoli. It is well-located and very clean, with a good breakfast, outstanding staff, and civilized evening social activities. A calm oasis in a crazy but worthwhile city.

This was a busy hostel, lots of people to talk too. A good place to stay when touring Naples. Good breakfasts. Staff were helpful. Sometimes a wait for the bathroom. Followed instruction on internet exactly to find it. You had to pay 5 cents to use the elevator but could get the money from a bowl at the front desk
