The hostel is excellent, almost entirely because of the people who run it. They recommended places for me to visit, suggested the best trattorias and pizzerias for meals and overall left me smiling due to their contagious positivity. There are free dinners organised by the hostel every Tue and Thurs, which is a great way to meet other people staying...

I was dubious at booking hostel of the sun because Google mapping the location does raise an eyebrow. But I am so glad I decided to book. This place is amazing. Firstly all of the staff are super friendly and helpful. Even arranging a pizza delivery for those arriving late in the day! They provide great recommendations and make it...

The hostel's staff is amazing, both super friendly and helpful. Any questions were answered promptly and their recommendations for restaurants and bars were spot on. The common area also has a wide assortment of entertainment (PS4, Wii, darts, foosball, dozens of board games, etc.) Unfortunately there were a few smaller issues that prevent the 5 star rating: 1. Common area...

The hostel has a cozy feel to it. Although it is a small hostel compared to the others I have stayed at, but its fun. The receptionists are helpful, some are more friendly than others. The hostel was clean! The location is just 2 minutes walk from port, so it was super easy for us to catch the ferry to...

One of the best hostels that I have stayed in! Whilst it's not the most modern and shiny hostel in the world it is very clean and well looked after. I stayed with my fiancé, two younger sisters and my parents so a pretty mixed group. My parents had never stayed in a hostel before but after staying here they...

First of all, I must say that I am not the hostel type of traveller, but once every 2-3-4 years I tend to go for a hostel trip. Booked as the best choice in Naples,I should say that Hostel of the Sun completely deserves the title. We were a group of 12 and when we arrived at the building we...

From the moment I walked in I got an instance good vibe about the place and after speaking with Lorella on reception I knew I'd chosen well. The care and attention they give you when you first arrive is great and they give you a map and draw routes and sites on it based on why you are in Naples....
