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....

I loved everything about this place! Starting with great and super helpful staff who can always recommend you a lot of great places, nice breakfast, cleanliness of rooms and bathrooms and convenient location close to historical sights and with great connection to the airport - it is simply amazing! I would definitely recommend it to everyone coming to visit Naples!...

From the outside the place looks dreadful. However, once you step out of the elevator, things are looking up. A cosy little reception area with friendly staff. Just off from it is a little bar with a very kind bartender. Free breakfast included - you can have tea, coffee, chocolate, milk, juice, whatever and as much as you like. Also...

The staff were very interfering, made comments on the time of day we left or returned to the hostel, there was no lock out but we were made to feel unwelcome at certain times. No locks on rooms. Staff came into our room at one point and asked us to turn the light off - felt like being on a...

I visited the first time in June 2015. I made so many great friends, including the staff that I stayed again June 2016. Great gelato spots and affordable pizza nearby. It's so great meeting people from all over the world. I look forward to visiting in 2017.
