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 had a beautiful stay at the hostel. The owners are wonderful people and were caring a lot about all my needs. For example helping me organize all my travels or simply giving out food or something to drink even very late at night. It is located directly at the beach, where you can have a nice walk along the ocean. Thanks for all help to make this some great days in Italy! ;) Cheers, Nahuel

First. Francesco and brother Marco are awesome! Helpful and kind and really try hard to help. The hostel is a little like camping. You must insert coins, provided, in the shower for hot water, and only between the hours of 07-10 and 18-21. To use the gas to cook in the kitchen, you must insert 50 euro cents. These are OK, when they're working. Lastly your advertising states breakfast included in price. This is not so. Overall, a cool place to stay.

Direkt am Strand, hat eine Bushaltestelle vor dem Haus und einen Supermarkt in der Nähe. Perfekt für einen Kurzurlaub ans Meer, das Gebäude ist wunderschön und man kann sogar selbst kochen.
