Backpacking La Spezia

There is a few things you should know about La Spezia hostels and the city in general. Besides comparing you the best and cheapest hostels in La Spezia, we also highlight what we have liked, disliked and things to look out for.

La Spezia, Liguria, Italy, is a medium-sized town in the province of Liguria in the northwest of Italy, whose main touristic appeal is its proximity to the world famous Cinque Terre and the convenience of sleeping there rather in the more expensive five towns. Cinque Terre is a group of five tiny coastal towns which have been included on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Incredibly picturesque due to haphazard constructions and bustling with color, the area offers hikes along the seashore and scenic views and the possibility of just relaxing and having a spritz by the seaside, as well as some more challenging hikes further up into the mountains that are covered in vineyards.

The five towns are connected by train, with just a few minutes between stations. La Spezia itself is located a few minutes away from Riomaggiore, the first of the five towns starting from the south, which makes it an ideal place in which to stay for a traveler looking for La Spezia, Liguria, Italy hostels in Cinque Terre and the surrounding regions, since accommodation in the five towns is rather limited and quite expensive, especially during the season. A rushed traveler can wake up in La Spezia, see all five towns in one day and be back for dinner, although obviously it makes sense to take it slow, hike between towns, and explore every street.

Thus, the traveler interested in hostels in La Spezia, Liguria, Italy, would be advised to look for hostels near the train station, although since the city itself is quite small, the overwhelming majority of the properties are within walking distance of it. The city does not have any other features of note, such as parks, fairs, main streets, or restaurant areas, but as in all of Italy, you can not go wrong with holes-in-the-wall, family restaurants, or places filled with locals.
