Chasa Plaz Hostel Reviews

Run by a very nice owner/innkeeper who lives around the corner from the hostel and also lets a few B&B rooms in her house. Hostel is in a very old building with a great atmosphere. It has a good kitchen facility that costs a few francs extra. Groceries nearby. Cool old wood paneled dining room with lots of character. Clean sheets included in rate. Not much we could see to do in town it was very quiet, but a good stop on the way between Switzerland and Bolzano. (Note if you are travelling to nearby Malles, Italy, to catch the train into Merano there is no cash machine at the new train station (as of 7/2005) to buy euros, and they don't take Swiss francs! You'll have to walk up into town to find one, so buy them before you arrive.)



The Chasa Plaz youth hostel is housed in a building, dating back to 1537, which was formerly used as a guest- and warehouse. Once upon a time, the vaulted cellar room was packed high with goods, which were transported on horse-back over the Ofen and Umbrail Passes or through the narrow Calven valley. Years later, when hand-weaving was a dying profession, the Tessanda was formed to provide local girls and women with an education and a means of income.

This noble house has been a youth hostel since 1966 and now serves as a hub for those wishing to explore the area's fabulous natural and cultural landscape. The Swiss National Park and the no-less impressive Italian Stilfzerjoch National Park are easy to reach from Sta. Maria. History-lovers are transported back to the Middle Ages in the South Tirolean village of Vinschgau, just a few kilometres away. As well as churches and abbeys, the area are also numerous castles. Mustair Abbey is a world heritage site dating back to the early Middle Ages. The abbey was built in the 8th century and houses well-preserved frescos, dating back to Carolingian times.
