Hostel of the Sun





The Hostel of the Sun is located in the heart of Naples. The last stop of tram no.1 (Colombo direction) is right near the street where the hostel is located. Twenty five minutes walk to the train station, and only fifteen minutes by foot to the old city.


The best

The staff is passionate and informative. They love Naples, enjoy working at the hostel, and know pretty much everything about the city. All the useful travel information we got were from the staff. Because the building is historic, the quirky elevator can add to the charm (you know what I’m talking about if you’ve been there!)


The worst

The bed wasn’t too comfortable. But I had a good night sleep every night.

Editor’s pick

The Hostel of the Sun is an upbeat hostel with a lot of character and a fantastic staff. It is located in an old building with a peculiar elevator that only works when you feed the meter. Most of all, I liked the location. It is close to the old town and to the tram line. Naples is a big city, but the hostel is situated in the middle of most of the attractions.
