WINNER Most Improved Hostel Worldwide 2014!!!
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 the road to Portovenere (5-10 minutes).
Newly renovated, Ostello Tramonti is the cheapest accommodation in an expensive area and was the highest rated hostel in Cinque Terre on HostelWorld 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. We have a ping-pong table and sun lounges in the garden. Free WiFi is accessible throughout the hostel and we have computers available for guests to use that are connected to the Internet. There is also a 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 1€, one way. For guests that stay 3 nights or more, we offer the shuttle service, free of charge! 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 the 14th of March and the 1st of 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 but we'll pay for you from the second night of your stay!
Please read all the information carefully before booking - including how to find us!
VERY IMPORTANT: Please do not arrive at the hostel to check in or to drop your bags off before 2pm! Facilities in the hostel will be closed for cleaning during this time and restaurants and shops in the town are closed and there are no public buses in the middle of the day. If you arrive in the area before 2pm, we recommend leaving your bags in one of the secure luggage stores at either La Spezia Train Station (Platform 1) or opposite the train station in Riomaggiore. This means that you can enjoy some time in Cinque Terre or La Spezia first and then catch either of the public services to the hostel later in the afternoon or contact us to book a shuttle from Riomaggiore in the evening. We want to ensure you enjoy your time here and make the most of it. As there are no public buses leaving Biassa until late in the afternoon, you will not have a way of leaving once you are here and everything in the town is closed during this time! If you arrive in La Spezia and wish to head to Cinque Terre, you can catch a train from La Spezia to Riomaggiore and leave your bags there. It is only one stop by train and about a 8 minute journey. From there you can arrive at the hostel easily, later in the day.
This is not a party hostel - for the comfort of our guests, we have a curfew and ask for silence after midnight.
Please do not book this hostel if you are planning on catching an early train from La Spezia or Riomaggiore (before 7:00 am) as there is no public transport at this time of the day. Taxis cannot be booked the night before and are not available at this time of the morning.
