From the airport Alibus drop off nearby the hostel at pizza municipio ( 4 euros.). We arrived at 1130 pm. The neighborhood and exterior of the hostel seemed alittle dodgy but once inside all was fine. We did not need at night but during the day it is 5 cents to use the elevator, there is a basket of coins...

Stayed here for a couple nights in early august. The double room was a really good size for a hostel, working air con, hot water and large ensuite. Breakfast supplied was decent, was a normal continental type. Staff are very friendly and will recommend things to do and book things for you. They will do your washing for around 8...

Excellent hostel - clean, friendly and well located. Rooms have lockers, and there are plenty of bathrooms for the number of guests. Decent bar with friendly guests. Generous mojitos. Recommend staying here for a couple of nights. Good base to visit nearby places e.g. Pompei, Sorrento, Amalfi

I am so glad I chose to stay at this hostel. I picked it originally because it was close to the port, as I was catching a ferry the following day. It meant I had the day to see some of Naples & this hostel is close to everything, so is an easy walk to see the sights & I...

This hostel is extremely hard to find. Do not attempt to arrive after dark as it is in a rather dodgy area. After keying in a number the door opens and you find yourself standing at the bottom of this stairwell. It is only after 2 flights of stairs that there is even a sign to indicate that the reception...

Location wise, it is not too far away from the tube station of Universita, probably 10-15 minutes walk. While making my way to the hostel, I was very skeptical about it because the street it is located at seems a little rundown and unappealing. Even more so when I found out that the lift/elevator is very small and old. However,...

We only stayed for one night on a cross over from rome to the amalfi coast. Really good location- close to both ports. Staff are really friendly and helpful- showed us all the best places to go and gave us a free map. We had a private room between 5 of us, it was simple and clean and close to...

Comfortable and clean, with many rooming options. I first came here as a backpacker in 2007. And every time I visit, as I grow older, I still bring my partner, my kids and friends as I visit this beautiful part of the world time and time again. The people that run Hostel of the Sun are vibrant and full of...
