Welcome to our hostel

The Chasa Plaz youth hostel is housed in a building, dating back to 1537, which was formerly used as a guest- and warehouse.

Once upon a time, the vaulted cellar room was packed high with goods, which were transported on horse-back over the Ofen and Umbrail Passes or through the narrow Calven valley. Years later, when hand-weaving was a dying profession, the Tessanda was formed to provide local girls and women with an education and a means of income.

This noble house has been a youth hostel since 1966 and now serves as a hub for those wishing to explore the area's fabulous natural and cultural landscape. The Swiss National Park and the no-less impressive Italian Stilfzerjoch National Park are easy to reach from Sta. Maria. History-lovers are transported back to the Middle Ages in the South Tirolean village of Vinschgau, just a few kilometres away. As well as churches and abbeys, the area are also numerous castles. Mustair Abbey is a world heritage site dating back to the early Middle Ages. The abbey was built in the 8th century and houses well-preserved frescos, dating back to Carolingian times.

Ein altes Bauernhaus schön hergerichtet. In der Nebensaison leider kein Frühstück inbegriffen und für den Gebrauch der Selbstversorgerküche müssen 3 Franken erstattet werden. WLAN ist umsonst. Die Zimmer waren unverschlossen und auch nur Regale für das Gepäck vorhanden (nicht absperrbar).
