WINNER Most Improved Hostel Worldwide 2014!!!
VERY IMPORTANT: Please do not arrive at the hostel to check in or to drop your bags off before 2pm! We close the hostel during this time for cleaning and staff changeover so there will be no one here to unlock the door for you and no facilities available. There are also no public buses leaving Biassa during this time and restaurants and shops in the town are closed so you will not have a way of leaving if you arrive during this time and nothing to do! If you wish to leave your bags somewhere, there are lockers in both La Spezia train station and in front of the train station in Riomaggiore. Please read on for more important information about our hostel.
Ostello Tramonti is situated in Biassa – an ancient town set in the lush green hills that surround the gUlf of Poeti (Golfo dei Poeti). Biassa is the gateway to the breathtaking coastline of Cinque Terre and to the many pathways that cross the hillside. Cinque Terre is accessible from the hostel by foot or we offer a shuttle service. The hostel is also very close to the city of La Spezia (5-10 minutes) and to Portovenere (5-10 minutes).
Ostello Tramonti is the cheapest accommodation in an expensive area and was the highest rated hostel in Cinque Terre on Hostelz.com last year! We opened to guests in April 2002 and have since hosted thousands of visitors from around the world. We have 14 rooms with 4 beds in each as well as one double room – a total of 58 beds. Both floors have bathroom and shower facilities.
All parts of our hostel are accessible by wheelchair, including bathroom and shower facilities. Ostello Tramonti is especially suited to large groups. For people that are travelling with their own form of transport, there is free parking available.
Ostello Tramonti has a restaurant and bar on site where delicious meals are prepared from scratch by our Italian chef for very reasonable prices. The property boasts a large terrace and garden area, as well as a lounge room with books to read, TV and DVDs available to watch and board games to play. Free WiFi is accessible throughout the hostel and we have computers available for guests to use that are also connected to the Internet. We also have a public phone and washing machine available to guests.
Our multi-lingual receptionists will be happy to answer any questions you may have as well as give you information on the hiking paths, sightseeing, activities you can do in the area and getting around Cinque Terre.
We offer an efficient shuttle service from the hostel to Riomaggiore - the first village of Cinque Terre. From the shuttle, you can admire the first part of the coastline, with spectacular views from the road. The journey takes about 8 minutes and costs only 2 € per person (return) OR FREE IF YOU STAY 3 NIGHTS OR MORE!! The shuttle bus runs numerous times from the hostel to Riomaggiore in the mornings and from Riomaggiore to the hostel in the evenings. The Ostello Tramonti shuttle can be booked at reception. Between 14th March and 1st November, there is also a public bus service from the hostel to Riomaggiore. From the hostel, you can hike to Riomaggiore and to Portovenere (a gorgeous town by the sea) with stunning views along the way.
A touristic tax of 1.50 € per person, per night applies. We'll pay for you from the second night of your stay!
