Marina di Massa Hostel

Hostel Marina di Massa

Hostelling International

Welcome to our hostel

An ancient villa surrounded by a beautiful garden, a stone’s throw from the beach on the north coast of Tuscany, you can really unwind at Marina di Massa. Depending on the season, you can look out over snow-capped mountains beyond the crashing waves, which can be seen from all bedroom windows! Aside from the array of natural beauty, this is a great base to explore La Spezia and La Cinque Terre, along with the famous white marble caves.

At Marina di Massa you will find stunning views, spacious male and female dorms, twin private rooms, and access to large balconies with deck chairs. You can also make use of the big lounge area, outdoor seating and lawns, communal kitchen and secure car park within the hostel grounds.

Here, you are well-placed to visit more of Italy’s areas of interest such as Pisa, Lucca and Firenze, but with the lovely staff and warm atmosphere, you’ll be glad you left the beaten track.

I love it at ostello Apuano. It is one of my favorite places in the world. The people are wonderful. The beach is just outside the gate and is free where people can bring their dogs who are so much fun. Everyone is so friendly. The family are so wonderful, they make me a part of their family. The villa and garden are so beautiful. I love it.

The hostel manager, Francesco, was very welcoming & helpful. Unfortunately the lockers were fairly small, and I had some of my stuff stolen by another guest, which seemed so out of place in this otherwise very relaxed location.

A July visit with my daughter to visit marble studios. Clean, large and airy room. Fresh cotton bed linen. No security on cupboards. Leave valuables in reception. Francesco very friendly and helpful. Clean hot showers. No menu to speak of. Restaurant food basic to cater for school groups. 2 local stores for basic supplies. Basic gas stoves pay by meter. Space in fridge and freezer. Good garden and parking space. Unclean dog beach. Not a great bit of beach and dodgy after 10 pm trade!
