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.
