“The best hostel ever!”
Reviewed 19 March 2013

The hostel Tramonti is a great place to stay in! Is located in a beautiful area very close to La Spezia and Cinque Terre (there is a shuttle service to Riomaggiore, really cheap and comfortable). The rooms are big and clean and the staff is wonderful, very kind and helpful. There is a wi-fi zone with a few computers and a big terrace where you can spend a nice evening with your friends. Without any doubts I can reccomend it to everybody!!

I found accidentally this hostel during my holiday in 2011. I had a great time there! Hostel is situated in very beautiful area. The most important for me was the staff which was very friendly and helpful. The hostel organizes a shuttle to Riomaggiore - very cheap and with very nice drivers. What's more there is a big terrace where is possible to meet people from all over the world. The rooms are clean and there is a zone with computers and wifi. I came back there in 2012 and I'm sure that I'll come back also in the future. I strongly reccomend this hostel to everyone!

We stayed several nights in the hostel and couldn't complain. For this type of accomodation, it was good. The hostel has several parking lots and organizes a shuttle to Cinque Terre, which is great. There is also a bus connection to La Spezia, although not too frequent. The hostel offers simple but clean rooms, and I appreciated the effort of the staff to keep the pace clean and tidy. Breakfast could have been richer ( mostly cakes and cookies) and better organized with a larger amount of people staying at the same time. The hostel has a terrace where you can sit and eat/drink, and talk to people, there is wifi although just in the entrance area, and a small common room on the first floor. Recommended for backpackers and people that mostly come to stay the night - the village is small and calm, with few eating or entertainign facilities.

I stayed here with 3 other friends. We were given an apartment that had 2 bedrooms but 5+ beds. It was clean and the beds were comfortable. But it felt like I was walking into someone's apartment. Like, someone was still living there. There were things under the bed and clothes in the dryer. Also, no air conditioning -- and it was very warm in August. Very strange. Other than that, it was very comfortable. If you're visiting with friends, this place is spacious for 4+ people.

We stayed there 2 nights, we had a great surprise when it was no trouble at all to get a private room instead of sleeping in a dorm.
And we got the upgrade for free!!!!
