    I stayed for two nights at this hostel and absolutely adored it's proximity to the beach! I arrived earlier than the 4pm check in and was able to spend a couple of hours lying on the sand. The staff were wonderful and very accommodating. The common rooms and kitchens were lovely as well. It would have been nice to have more bathrooms available but otherwise a very pleasant stay!

    Fantastic hostel! Highly recommended for anyone coming to this area. It’s in a beautiful setting, not too far from the train station if you’re doing the Cinque Terre. Very pleasant helpful staff, Magda was friendly and knowledgeable about the area and the night team helped us print boarding passes for our next flight. The facilities are great for socializing, always impeccably clean, rooms are comfortable, lockers are spacious. The free breakfast was good. Couldn’t have had a better experience.

    My friend and I stayed for 2 nights during our interrail trip. The rooms were big and the lockers were huge, helpful staff and nice common areas! Kitchen only had a microwave, would be better if there was a stove top. Breakfast was basic but fine considering it’s free! Not a party atmosphere but good if you’re looking for somewhere close to Cinque Terre (easy to catch a train)

    Good location, walking distance to train station and beach. Staff are lovely. Included breakfast is nice bonus. No AC can get sweltering, they provided one fan in the room but more would be appreciated. Kitchen only has a fridge and microwave, but there’s lots of places to eat around town.

    The town really exceeded all my expectations. The breakfast in the hostel was fair but nothing to get excited about, the bed was squeaky but the mattress itself really comfortable. With two minutes walking you would get to the homey and alive center of the town. More impressive was to walk one more minute and get directly into the beach, which was even better than the ones in Cinque Terre, with soft sand, and less of a multitude, with a great view to see the sunset.

    The reason to stay at Hostel Ospitalia del Mare is for the location—perched near the beach in Levanto and an easy train ride from the towns of the Cinque Terre. The Hoste is also very reasonably priced with a kind staff. However, the beds, lockers, and bathrooms are shabby and are merely functional. Also, I’ve stayed at a lot of hostels, and this is perhaps the worst breakfast I’ve had—stale bread with a few spreads. But, you get what you pay for, and I met some great, lively people there!

    Located in Levanto just on the trail and a few mintues walk to the beach. Not every bed had an outlet which at this point is rather not cool. Other than that no complaints: big room, big lockable locker, ok Not very social if you are looking for something like that. Weird check in times- pay attention

    Good location (3 mins walk from old town), breakfast and lockers were available and staff were on hand for advice. The breakfast was included which great but was very basic. There was no atmosphere at all so not the place if you’re looking to meet other travellers.

    More like a hotel rather. Zero atmosphere, extremely hard to socialize with others. On the pro side, rooms are clean and specious. This is a place for you if all you need is a clean bed and shower. No kitchen, only a fridge. And please place a pen in the kitchen so we can lable our foods as instructed. (After here, I stayed in Costello Hostel in La Spezia, highly highly recommend for Cinque Terre visits. Read their reviews). ciao
