We only stayed for one night on a cross over from rome to the amalfi coast. Really good location- close to both ports. Staff are really friendly and helpful- showed us all the best places to go and gave us a free map. We had a private room between 5 of us, it was simple and clean and close to... More

Comfortable and clean, with many rooming options. I first came here as a backpacker in 2007. And every time I visit, as I grow older, I still bring my partner, my kids and friends as I visit this beautiful part of the world time and time again. The people that run Hostel of the Sun are vibrant and full of... More

Was in Naples for one night and chose to stay here. Wish we could have stayed longer! By far the best room I stayed in throughout travelling around Europe. The staff were very accommodating. The room had 3 single beds with a shared bathroom. The bathroom and bedroom were both very clean. Breakfast was great in the morning. I would... More

Travelled round Italy for a month and this was not only the best room we had (stayed in a private double room) but also the friendliest staff, couldn't be nicer or more welcoming and do everything they can to make you feel at home, starting by giving detailed instructions via a map of what to do and where it is,...

We stayed at the Hostel of the Sun during a trip in Napoli with a friend. When we arrived, we were surprised to find 5 beds instead of four but thought nothing of it. When on the first night, we realised that there was 5 of us staying in this 4 bed-dorm, I asked Reception if maybe this was a... More

The staff are friendly and are always there to help you 24/7. The location of the hostel is next the port giving you a short distance from public transport links. There is a large choice of activities such as Horseriding up Mt. Vesuvius, free walking tours around the city and a Kayaking tour along the coast. I would highly recommend... More

7th floor is the reception, don-t worry you got the smallest and oldest elevator you have ever seen! But it works! Or take a decision, let-s do the sport we never have time to do, and take the stairs! :) Amazing location, so easy to arrive there from the airport, close to the sea side, close to the old center,...
