The staff make the place. They are hugely enthusiastic and friendly (as mentioned elsewhere, even remembering most of the names of the many people passing through). They couldn't be more helpful and set everyone up to have a really enjoyable stay in Naples.
The facilities are generally good and everything is clean. The location could be a little better, but it is within easy reach of plenty of the places that you might want to visit and public transport is good for the rest.
Oh, and did I mention, the staff are excellent !

We stayed two nights in a double room - shared bathroom. Room was basic but good for the value compared to other hostels.

We missed the pasta party put on by the hostel staff - not sure if a regular thing.

We were getting the ferry to Capri - good location for the port if you have heavy bags!! Also within walking distance from the station (about 25mins!)

Staff were really helpful an friendly - definitely worth a stay.

Struggled to find the place at first! However, it was the best hostel experience I have had in my life! The best atmosphere, the nicest staff. I can't fault this place, there were no problems! The staff remembered my name too! Not one hostel has done this before, and I was there for 2 nights! The recommendations I was given by the staff were fantastic, oh I want to go back already!

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.
