Rimini used to be called the Teutonic (German) BBQ, because thousands of German holiday-makers lay on the beaches and turned over like steaks. It is still the same, just more international now. You've got to pay for most beaches and the beach strip is filled with restaurants, shops, and hotels. If one likes to party and have not much space on the beach during the seasons, you might like it. The centre of Rimini is attractive.
Visit Rimini if you like beaches, nightlife, sun, and sports -- it's a resort of high class and as such offers various hostel options for different travelers (some promote themselves as party places while others are more quiet). Not surprisingly, almost all Rimini hostels are located near the sea. If you go there in the high season, be sure to book your hostel in advance, especially if you are a bigger group. Hostels in Rimini are not cheap and prices in the summer can be really high, especially if you do not make your booking on time. Many Rimini hostels do not operate all year long.
Rimini is one of the most famous Italian resorts. It gets really international in the summer and is a great place for people who fancy nightlife -- you can hardly find a better summer party place in Italy than Rimini. There are also more than enough historical places to visit if you like sightseeing -- Tempio Malatestiano, San Fortunato Church, Ponte di Tiberio, and the Roman Amphitheater, to name a few. San Marino is just twenty kilometers away.
If you arrive in Rimini via the airport, there are a lot of public transportation options to get to your chosen Rimini hostel. There are a lot of buses that go directly to the city, but be sure to know your station. Even taking a taxi to your hostel in Rimini is not too expensive, as the airport is no more than seven kilometers away. Train connections are also convenient and most Rimini hostels are within walking distance of the train station.
