Hostel of the Sun is an ideal place to stay while visiting beautiful Napoli. We are walking distance from the Historical Center, Castel Nuovo, Palazzo Reale, Palazzo Plebiscito, and the fabulous shopping on Via Toledo- to name a few. Two of Naples most historic and loved Pizzerias, (Gino Sorbillo and Di Matteo), are a ten minute walk from our doorstep.
Hostel of the Sun has by far the best location coming from the Airport, Train Station and Ferry Ports. If you are planning to discover the city, and make day trips to all of Naples’ surroundings this is the perfect place to be.
We love Napoli, however if you wish to venture outside of the city, we are a 5 minute walk to the ferry terminal with frequent departures to Capri and Ischia. From this same terminal there are also busses to Pompeii and the Amalfi Coast. Just 20 metres from our door you’ll find the metro line Linea 1 "università" that runs every 5 minutes to and from the Stazione Centrale.
The ALIBUS shuttle bus from the Naples Airport (Capodichino) is just 200 metres from the hostel, where buses depart every 20 minutes. The journey takes just 25 minutes and costs 3 euros.

Walk outside the station and take the linea 1 (metro line 1, be careful not to get onto the line 2) direction PISCINOLA. Tickets cost 1 euro and can be bought inside the station.
Get off at UNIVERSITA.
Exit the station and you will see a statue of a horse right outside, in the middle of the Piazza Bovio. Look in the opposite direction the horse is looking and you will see that the street splits in two. Take the left street, Via Depretis (not the uphill road).
You'll see a huge castle at the end of the street. Walk towards it on the left sidewalk. Before arriving at the castle, you will see a coffe bar called "Mavi Caffe" and a small street on the left, this is Via Melisurgo, our street. We are number 15, the last building on the left hand side, right after a bar with a green sign called "Bar Seccia".
