Hostelworld says

Hostel of the Sun is in an excellent location overlooking the bay and is just 10 minutes' walk from Piazza Trieste e Trento and the Galleria di Palazzo Zevallo Stigliano. In fact, it's an easy walk to all of the historic centre of Naples. This hostel features a wide range of private rooms and dorms and Hostelworld guests have compared it favourably to a hotel. We like that the friendly staff have great suggestions for local restaurants and sights off the beaten track.

    Aside from the obvious upsides of location and cost, I had an absolute pleasure of a stay. Unfortunately I couldn’t book more than one day and had to move, but in the short time I spent there I got to meet some lovely new friends, hosts and visitors alike. The atmosphere was relaxing and friendly, all of the rooms, toilet, shower and kitchen were clean and tidy. The hostesses were simply the best. Knew exactly where to send us, from pasta to tattoos to beauty full neighborhoods. Will definitely come back :

    Very nice staff. Gave us a map and mapped out different areas to explore & gave food recommendations. The room we had was very clean & had air conditioning. The complimentary breakfast in the morning was simple but satisfying. The location was about a five minute walk to the train station and to the port to catch a ferry, so located in a good area to be able to get around. Overall, very happy with the stay and would definitely stay there again.

    Ee well, what can i said, travel a loot been to a loot of hostels, and this is the good one, clean, nice, chill, the bed does not creak that's a big plus, if you turn around it won't make noise, air condition in the room. Did i will recommend, definitely yes, did i will use it again if i will visit Naples, sure i will.

    Had a great time at this hostel! The location was pretty good, can easily get to the sights. Staff is very helpful, they provided recommendations on where to go, restaurants, bars, etc. Complimentary breakfast is a nice addition. Contrary to what’s written on the property details, they do not have 24h reception or bar.

    Hostel of the sun is situated in the city center area, but this area is very degraded. The facilities is old, as the building where is the hostel. The staff is friendly and gave to me a map of the city with some recommendations. Naples city is not prepared to receive tourist and I was very disappointed with the customer service there.

Hostel of the Sun says

Here at Hostel of the Sun we\'ve come up with a load of original ways to see the sights around the area. Bored of walking tours? We\'ll get you on a horse up Vesuvius, in a kayak around the Bay of Naples and eating Sfogliatella and drinking coffee with the locals! Back at the hostel everything is included in the price you see online - Wi-Fi, computers, linen and breakfast - so there are no hidden costs when you arrive here!
I think we set ourselves apart by offering great customer service. Actually, we just care about our guests. Whether it\'s helping them save money, getting somewhere in the quickest way or even doing their washing for them, we\'ll really try our best to help them out with anything.
We\'re located exactly in the centre of Naples, a short tram ride from the station (â'¬1.20), 10 minutes\' walking distance to the old town, two minutes from the main square and the shopping areas. But most importantly we are fantastically located for all the day trips that our guests can do around the area - we are about two minutes\' walk from the port where boats go to Capri and the other islands, seconds from public transport to Pompeii and the Amalfi Coast.
As for my personal favourite, there are so many things to visit in the area that it\'s hard to choose! I suppose it has to be Pompeii though. The levels of preservation of these ruins are just incredible, and there\'s no way you can come to Italy without taking a day to roam the streets of this ancient Roman city.
We\'ve seen a big change in the age group of people staying at the hostel. A larger range of ages have realised the advantages of staying in hostels rather than budget hotels, from meeting other travellers to getting the best local advice from the experts - us! Too many hotels hand you the keys to your room and say \'ciao\' but this isn\'t our style. Whether you\'ve got five days or five hours in our city we\'ll help you make the most of it.
We have both dorm and private rooms available for people with disabilities, and all areas of the hostel are easily accessible; no tricky stairs or tight spaces. The hostel is located on the seventh floor but of course we have a lift! Luca, Owner
