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,...

The staff is so kind and energetic. Definitely one of the best hostels of all my travels. This place has a great vibe, plus you can be assured that the management will go above and beyond to make your stay is a positive experience.

This hostel was really clean and had a really nice atmosphere. The staff were really nice and helpful and will give you a free map and tell you where to go for really amazing pizza and tips to plan your trip. They do really nice things like free dinners and organise events and free walking tours.

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
