We are both over 50 but thoroughly enjoyed staying in the private, almost boutique rooms on the 6th floor. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, they showed us how to get heat out of the air con, how to change the tv language to name two things. The facilities were great value for money and even the eccentric... More

We stayed one week in this hostel and we were quite surprised by the nice atmosphere! When we checked in we got a plan and the (super nice!!) staff explained us how to get to the different sights and the best (and cheapest) way. The staff explains everything very good and they can recommend restaurants, trips, etc.The rooms and especially... More

The hostel is very well located. Close to main tourism sites of naples. It is also clean and organized. Definitely a good option in naples. You can get a bad first Impression from the entrance. But inside is very nice.

This was a well organised and friendly hotel, close to the port and main parts of the city. I stayed online one night but i was warm and comfortable. The hostel is colourful and atmospheric. Thank you to everyone there

I am a little older now and sometimes feel a little out of place in hostels. When I read all the "friendliest staff ever" reviews I was a little skeptical and worried it was going go come off as put on and a little overbearing - so glad about how wrong I was! What was booked as a 2 night... More

I chose Hostel of the Sun for its location and decent reviews and it served its purpose. The front desk staff is multilingual, helpful and happy to give suggestions on places to see and things to do. The hostel is located over several floors (2nd, 7th and 8th) and all the common space is on the 8th floor, so you... More

19 euro for a bunk bed that was shaking and making noise the whole night...No thanks! Never again! One more advise: do NOT order the pizza suggested by the hostel, it s the worst in Napoli! The location is ok during the day but during the night is desolated

Just a wonderful, friendly place. As mentioned, terrific helpful staff, great brekky dining with Folk from all around the Planet. Highly recommended. Close to the centre of most action, but, beware of the local nosh shops! Ensure you ask the prices prior to dining.
