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.

Loved it so much here! The owners made me feel at home as did the beautiful women I met who were also staying there. I ate delicious homemade pasta, spent time at the beach, learned some Italian phrases and just got to relax in a beautiful space. Bellissimo!

A villa right on the beach. Best for a beach holiday although possible to take a 51 bus (2.50) to Cararra for onward travel by train and to walk 20 minutes to Marina di Cararra for a boat trip to the Cinque Terre. Helpful staff, nice and clean.

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.
