It’s the little things that people seem to miss when they’re backpacking away from home. Their dog, their playstation…but in this case they don’t have to, the Hostel of the Sun has a playstation room, as well as SKYTV and a DVD library – not that you’ll be needing these comforts of home when you’re so close to both the ruins of Pompeii and the birthplace of pizza.

Stay in a dorm or private doubles, singles triples or quads, and enjoy free breakfasts and tea and coffee – sans curfew – in this, one of the most frequently lauded hostels in the world. The reviews seem to say they’re doing a good job with everything but that the staff tip the balance into fantastic. And they know where to get the best pizza in Naples
