Property Description

Winner Most Improved Hostel Worldwide 2014!

Ostello Tramonti is situated in Biassa – an beautiful, ancient town, set in the lush green hills that surround the Gulf of Poets (Golfo dei Poeti). Biassa is the gateway to the breathtaking coastline of Cinque Terre and to the many stunning hiking trails 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).

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 all 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 our bathroom and shower facilities. Ostello Tramonti is well suited to individuals traveling solo, small groups and large groups. For people that have their own form of transport, there is free public parking available next to the hostel.

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 ample space outdoors in our well-kept gardens, with tables, chairs and sun lounges so that you can relax outside. 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 for a small fee.

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 have will even give you access to our suggested itineraries when you arrive for check-in!

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 in reception or by email, should you need one for your arrival. 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 (payable throughout Italy) of 2.50€ per person, per night applies but we will pay for you from the third night of your stay! Please remember the city tax and shuttles MUST be paid during check-in in CASH – we cannot charge these to a card.

Please do not book this hostel if you plan on catching an early train (before 7:15 am) as there is no public transport or taxis at this time of the morning and taxis cannot be booked the night before.

Please read all the information carefully before booking - including how to find us! We have maps and detailed directions on our website too –

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, just opposite the train station. It is only one stop by train and about an 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 7:15 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.

Our Italian chef here at Ostello Tramonti prepares fresh food every day, so get ready to feast on our outdoor terrace while enjoying hillside views of Biassa's rooftops. Afterwards, stretch out on a sun lounger or play ping pong in our garden. On cloudy evenings, chill out in our common room – it's filled with books, DVDs and a TV for a home-from-home feel. Back from a day in nearby La Spezia? Order a glass of red wine from our bar and write your postcards, or send some snaps to your friends using our free Wi-Fi.


You'll find us on the green hillside of the old town of Biassa, the gateway to the Cinque Terre region. Take our shuttle to Riomaggiore where you'll find a small beach and the 13th-century Castle of Riomaggiore. It takes 8 minutes and the journey only costs a euro – it's free for guests staying three nights or more. The port town of La Spezia is a 12-minute drive, or around a 20-minute journey by bus to Stazione La Spezia Centrale (the main train station). We're about 2 hours from Pisa International Airport via train from Pisa Central Station to La Spezia train station.

Rooms and Dorms

We have shared dorms and a private room – all with free linen and with towels for hire. Dorms have security lockers for storing your stuff, and we also have a safe deposit box for valuables. We've put a little table and chairs by the window in some dorms – the perfect place for your morning espresso! Our hostel is also wheelchair accessible, including the bathrooms and showers.

Extras and activities

Pop to reception to chat with our multi-lingual receptionists about hiking paths and exploring Cinque Terre. We can help you book tours, and we'll also give you a free city map so you can note down any recommended trattorias (local restaurants). If you've been out hiking around the coastline, use our washing machine and give your legs a break by taking the elevator.

    Great place to spend a few nights to hike and check out Cinque Terre. Friendly staff offers plenty of advice for what to do depending on what you're interested in. The restaurant upstairs makes GREAT food (breakfast and dinner) at very affordable costs, which was a huge plus that after hiking all day I didn't need to go anywhere to eat a delicious dinner. The common area and terrace have great views of Biassa and La Spezia.

    Staff as super helpful and the shuttle makes access to Cinque Terre easy. Can be difficult to reach on the public bus as they don’t run that often. Shower stalls are small but clean. Room were big and cool. Restaurant on site and prices were reasonable. A great stay and would definitely go back.

    Great hostel. Location is a bit far it from Riomaggiore but they have a shuttle bus service running everyday often. Hostel had great security and the staff were really helpful and welcoming. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Few outlets so sharing across the room was encouraged. Showers were small but very clean. Cafe offered good meal options fairly priced. Atmosphere was quiet but good. Definitely would recommend if you’re visiting Cinque Terre for a few days!

    Wonderful hostel (younger crowd) in the beautiful mountain town of Biassa. Super friendly and helpful staff, knowledgeable about whatever you want to ask. Everything was very clean. There is a free shuttle service offered several times in the morning to Riomaggiore and in evening to return, so it is fairly easy to get on the Cinque Terre circuit. Would highly recommend.

    The staff and ambiance of the hostel were very welcoming! The restaurant in the hostel was super delicious and affordable, and available during late hours. Shared showers are clean! Be aware that there is no AC, and my room slept with the large windows open. This created a concern for me as I am very susceptible to misquotes biting me. I made sure to rub essential oils ( peppermint) before heading off to bed as it is a natural repellant and it worked well enough!

    The location is lovely in a small village, and their shuttle service is really handy and the public bus is also easily accessible to La Spezia and Riomaggiore. It would be good if you could make you’re own food - there is only a fridge and a microwave in the common room. Also breakfast isn’t included, but the food is good in the hostel restaurant. It would be good to have a shelf on the top bunk. All in all it was a good stay and I would stay again!

    Very clean and comfortable hostel. Shuttle service is very useful and the location is a perfect distance from Cinque Terre - not too close, not too far. We will definitely come back to this hostel if we ever return to this part of Italy.

    Location is difficult to get to. However they provide a solid shuttle service on top of public transport. But even then timings are limited. Bistro serves good food and wine, atmosphere is nice and lounge has a good view. Room has no fan or air con though
