Welcome to our hostel


Just 50 metres from the resplendent Matera Cathedral and the park of Rupestrian Churches, HI Matera – Le Monacelle is a 16th century building providing a postcard worthy window into Matera’s historical area, Sassi. With its authentic cobbled terraces and location next to, or even in, the Stones of Matera UNESCO World Heritage Site, this is the perfect accommodation choice for lovers of archaeology – and beauty.

Matera – Le Monacelle offers simply furnished accommodation in private suites or dorms, complete with air conditioning, whitewashed walls, and classic vaulted ceilings. Guests can unwind in the hostel’s library or grab a drink at the bar. In the morning, a buffet of assorted breakfast foods is available.

Just a 15 minute walk from Matera Station, connecting with Bari, this accommodation is well linked to visit other Italian must-see locations. Additionally, guided tours to visit the parks of the Margia and Chiese Rupestri can be organised, so please enquire. In summer, the festival “Mona Celle Cultura” is held, a longstanding cultural event showcasing music, theatre and film.

I was the only guest in the hostel, so it was very quiet and calm. I appreciated that very much. Breakfast was not included and not offered either, that was a little bit awkward. The location is great, but the way to the hostel should be indicated from the railway station.

Excellent position, right in the middle of everything you want to visit in Matera. I paid the lowest price for a bed in the dorm, I expected towels to be included in the price I paid but they were not (but that's ok, I had one with me). Beds in the dorm are separated in group of two, and that's very confortable (less noise when you sleep and other people are coming back after the night).

j ai aimé l emplacement de l'auberge au cœur de la vielle ville et l ambiance monastique hors du commun ,la fraicheur dans le dortoir (beaucoup de lits pour peu de personnes !!)et la superbe vue du dortoir sur les georges !! je n ai pas aimé qu il n y ai pas de parking gratuit a proximité et l absenses de vie dans les grandes ,spacieuses et très nombreuses pièces a vivre !!!
