  • the location is good, near some sightseeing places and metro. The staffs are perfectly friendly. The sound from bathroom like flooding water is very noisy but technically this hostek is so good!!

  • Had a great time in Napoli at the Hostel of the Sun. The staff is great and the atmosphere is really cool. I enjoyed the Pasta evenings & the people I met. Would recommend to anyone, who wants to stay in Napoli. The location is really great. It's 5 Minutes from the metro station & the port. Very close to the Via Chiaia and Toledo.

  • Everything was great- free dinner twice a week, clean facilities, very comfortable beds, massive amounts of nutella during breakfast (3 kg!). You can see Mt. Vesuvius from the hostel's balcony! The rooms on the 7th floor (the reception floor) did not have locks for the bedroom door, but all other floors had locks. Only problem for me was that the bartender, Marcelo, kept trying to get me to come home with him. As a guest in a hostel he works for, this was very inappropriate and uncomfortable.

  • HOTS is one of the best hostels I've stayed in anywhere! The staff are all fantastic, the accommodations are comfortable, and because the dorm rooms sleep only 4 (or fewer) people, it's easy to meet new people and still get a good night's sleep. My stay in Naples was definitely much richer, fuller, and better guided for having stayed with HOTS!

  • There is a bar attached to the "main floor" of the hostel, so if there are rowdy guests it might get a bit loud, however the staff does its best to mitigate the noise. Alexander is a great bartender, and the desk staff is very friendly and helpful. This is a great place to stay. Remember to bring 5 cent Euros when checking in because the hostel is on the seventh floor and the lift requires 5c euros!!!

  • Appart from the snoring man in our room, my experience was fantastic. Great staff, great place, great everything! Suggestion : Add little shelves for the people on the top bunk, as I never knew where to put my charging phone or my glasses.
