Reviewed September 7, 2013

The experience was amazing, clean and quit hostel.
Staff is really friendly, you can spend all the day at the hostel you won't regret it.
Placed in the center of Naple, close to historical center, and ask for better pizzas, they have all the good adresses.

The staff at the Hostel of the Sun are so helpful and make sure you get the most out of your stay in Naples, from great eating out recommendations to arranging activities like canoeing and horse riding, everything we did at their suggestion was fabulous.
The breakfast is very generous, the rooms spacious and clean, and location ideal for sight-seeing.
It couldn't have been better.

Hostel of the sun!! The best hostel ever! I booked many hostels in europe and this one is my favorite! The stuff was soooooo friendly and easygoing!!!! I booked a 8-bed-room, there were enough pluggers, to charge the phone, a little lamp on every bed and i felt totally safe! Even if there was a big place to store some things (they lend you the padlock for free), i never had the feeling, that i need to hide something...i stayed there for 2 nights and on my last night i came back from the center at 4 am and needed to wake up 3 hours later...the girl at the reception told me, they could wake me up, what they really did!!! Thank you very much!! The hostel was very close to the port and in a good area!! The first night i came back from the hairdresser and the tattoo-studio around midnight and 30 min later i went out to PIAZZA BELLINI with a few people from the hostel! It was just great!!! The next night most of them were tired and stayed there, so i decided to go to piazza bellini on my own! And even if i don't like go out alone at night, i never felt unsafe! People told me, that napoli is dangerous and dirty, but i loved this city! I travelled through italy for one month (toscana, cinque terre, sardinia, sicily and amalfi coast) and i never had a bad experience! 1 min. Walk from the hostel, there was a tram station (10 min. To the train station) there was also a common room with a big choice of dvds, but i'm not travelling to stay in the hostel and watch tv...thats why i didnt use it...a day before i came to napoli i met a girl in ischia and it was a coincidence, that she stayed in the same hostel in naples like me! She also recommended it to me!!

I walked into the hostel and was greeted by the friendly and helpful, Harriett. I felt welcome as soon as I entered. I felt safe and also felt my luggage was safe leaving it unattended. I had a wonderful experience with people staying at the hostel and also with Harriett. Definitely recommend hostel of the sun.

This hostel has an amazing athmosphere. The staff are lovely and helpful and will do everything they can to make sure you enjoy your stay in Naples. The lounge and bar areas are great for relaxing and meeting other guests and the hostel have regular night's on (they held a pasta party during my stay) which are designed to encourage guests to mingle. The rooms are a bit warm at night but aside from that the whole place is comfortable and clean.
I will definitely be going back!

Departing the train station might make som regret their trip to Naples, however, Hostel of the Sun fast show you how incredible this place is. This is one of the most informative hostels I have ever stayed at, they go out of their way to ensure you get everything done that you hope to - including how to navigate the Amalfi Coast & Pompeii. Breakfast is brilliant and the vibe in the hostel is incredible. I would absolutely recommend this hostel for a visit to one of my now favourite cities.
