When I arrived at the hostel, I was met a very friendly girl on the reception,Barbara. She gave me keys, showed me my room going with me on the other floor. While we were in the lift, she gave me a lot of information about the hostel and Naples. This hostel has cozy rooms and a kitchen where guests can... More

As a group of 4 friends we had a great stay in this hostel. We had a spacious private bedroom with a good shower and working toilet. Only the Wifi-connection wasn't that great, but I personally didn't mind. You could always go upstairs to the reception and use the Wifi or the computers over there. You can even print some... More

We stayed at Hostel of the Sun for 4 nights in a private room with ensuite - the room & bathroom were great, modern, spacious and clean. We also had a little balcony off the room with table & chairs, which was a nice surprise. The air-conditioning worked really well. Our room was on the 6th floor (one floor below... More

Stayed in Hostel of the Sun on our first night for 3 days. There's a lot of steps to get there as its on 7th floor or you can take the lift if you fancy! We were welcomed so well! It felt like we had known these guys for ages! They advised us on all the sites and were so... More

Hard to find and its on the 7th floor. However, there is a good atmosphere and a cheap bar. The staff are very helpful and multilingual. Breakfast was basic with toast and jam. Pretty central to the centre of naples. Lots of activities available.

Key positives were the friendly, sociable vibe, the staff, and location. The staff were great - very helpful in attending to the queries/needs of the lodgers and dispensing with insightful and personalized advice and tips on getting around Naples. Location wise it is walking distance from a metro station and from a number of major tourist sites. The way the... More

Stayed here for 3 nights while in Naples and would definitely go back. Does look a little sketchy when you first walk up but don't let that fool you (You have to buzz up to the desk to have them let you in - sometimes it may take a few tries before they answer). The staff was very helpful and... More

Had a private room with en suite bathroom and it was pretty nice. Napoli is a terrible city overall with shady people everywhere and generally not a great place for families. But it is nice for visiting for about 24 or 48 hours, knock out the site seeing and most importantly EATING. For a city full of borderline criminals who... More

As soon as you arrive at the hostel, the a staff member sits down with you to explain you the most important sights in and around Naples. They also cared about special requests. I was interested in the offered horseback riding tour through the national park of the Vesuv. 2 other people were interested, but not sure yet if they... More

The hostel is well situated, cheap and even includes breakfast. It reflects the city; fit for purpose but needs a serious clean up. It came to great shock when I arrived. This is rated number 1 for hostels in Naples and honestly I was in shock to see the state of it! If you just want a lumpy bed to... More
