Located on the 7th floor (have €0.05 for the lift), it's a bright, sociable place with multicoloured dorms, a casual in-house bar (with cheap cocktails between 8pm and 11pm) and – a few floors down – a series of hotel-standard private rooms, seven with en-suite bathrooms.
Extras include laundry service for stays exceeding four days.
Our independent authors have visited Hostel of the Sun and selected this as one of our recommended hostels in Naples.
