As you enter the building it's a very odd layout, the hostel is on 7th floor, to access you need to take a lift to 9 then walk down and follow signs. All receptionists were lovely, they gave you maps and showed you were to go in the city. They booked me a tour one day so all in all... More

I stayed at this hostel for two nights. They have a great location close to the main places and restaurants, friendly and helpful staff and, very clean bathrooms and rooms. The breakfast is included and it was good. I would definitely go back again! Pro tip: they have free dinners on Tuesday and Thursday!

This hostel was my favourite stay in Italy. It doesn't look like much from the outside, but inside the facilities are clean and practical. The best part is the warm welcome present throughout - before even being allowed to check in I was handed a plate of free (delicious) pasta and sat down to talk about where I had come... More

The staff was friendly and very accommodating, giving me the lay of the land as well as pointing out great spots for food and entertainment (Sorbillos!!). The rooms were clean, the bathrooms spotless and the location central and very close to the efficient airport shuttle. While traveling on... More

I stayed in this Hostel for 5 nights. It´s perfect to visit Napoli, near to the bus and metro stations, which brings you to the Vesuv, Pompeji and Amalfi. Although near to the bus station to the airport and to the harbour, from where the ferry goes to capri. The stuff is friendly and helps you with every problem. Breakfast... More

I have stayed in many hostels from the pretty sketchy to the very nice. Hostel of the Sun can be pretty scary if it is your first experience, especially if you arrive after dark. It is in a dimly lit alleyway. The staff were all very pleasant and extremely helpful in getting around. A Plus for them! One of the... More

I stayed at this hostel for 3 nights. First night, the girl in my dorm complained about flea bites on her arm the night prior. The staff was nice and wanted to take care of for her right away by changing her bedsheets. With this, I decided to use my sleeping bag ASAP once I heard this news, of course.... More

This hostel only loses a mark based on the fact the rooms are a bit old and rusty and there are limited toilets/showers. Otherwise this hostel gets top marks. The environment is super welcoming, if your flying solo this is ideal. There's a great communal space and heaps of activities and tours on offer. The staff are so lovely and... More
