Hostel of the Sun is such a brilliant place. Excellent, knowledgable and friendly staff! Knew so much about Italy. Gave so much helpful advise about where to go. So welcoming on arrival it's a little shocking! Really great chilled out atmosphere, like a big psychedellic house of nomads. Music blearing, cool dogs coming up for cuddles. Loved it.

I stayed at Hostel of the Sun for four days in July 2012, the location is near the waterfront and easily accessible to ferries to the ilands and near the communter train station for excurstions out of town. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and the staff are very helpful with organizing your sightseeing and offering suggestions. I highly recommend staying at Hostel of the Sun when in Naples. I will definitly stay here when I visit southern Italy again.

The hostel that I will now judge all other hostels against. The staff was amazing, extremely helpful, knowledgeable and genuinely friendly. I actually felt like I was leaving friends behind when I left Napoli after a week. Great location right next to the docks and major bus station which makes day trips easy. Good breakfast, clean rooms, great common area, warm showers. The best hostel I've been to.

We had a wonderful one night stay at Hostel of the Sun. The staff is extremely friendly and the place is very comfortable. It has a nice "home" feeling to it with nice couches, books, and a TV to relax and watch a movie. The beds are comfortable and the place is very clean. You can even do your laundry there! Oh and it is very close to all of the site-seeing there, you can walk out of the hostel and get to the good food and the city center easily, just don't get mugged at night ;-) Ask the staff for information about food, sites, Pompei, ferries, etc. they will have answers for you. I would recommend staying here to fellow backpackers.
