First thing first, Onda Road Beach Hostyle sits in a great location. Close to the beach. Clean. Warmest hospitality. Greatest staff. Martina being informative and helpful to introduce you to all of the good places around and amazing activities to do; from as relaxing as sunbathing to as magnificent as hiking to as adventurous as cliff jumping and paragliding.

Onda Road Beach Hostyle is a surprising place! I really had a wonderful time there, sometimes I thought to stay in a parallel best world, full of friendships, kindness, respect, happiness, "peace and love" all around there! Since the first moment, when Martina's father came to catch me at the train station, I felt to be like at home, everything... More

Absolute paradise! I stayed Praia a Mare for close to a month, and was delighted to have spent the entire time at 'Ondaroad Hostel'. Lovely staff, clean premises, comfortable beds, even the tents are great! The lido by the beach, 'La Perla Nera,' run by the same people, is the best place to tan, take in the stunning views, and...

bonertsa, Manager at Onda Road Beach Hostyle, responded to this review

beds are standard sizes. the same single beds that you find in all hostels or hotels. We keep plastic on them to keep bed bugs away, in fact we havent reported a bed bugs case in over 2 years, since we adopted this solution. Summers on the Italian coast are very hot, no surprise about that, and also we DO... More

We booked to stay in ondaroad for 3 nights, and two weeks later we were still there. It is a really special place. The hostel itself is so beautiful, clean and homely, the beach right next to it is amazing and the hostel's beach bar is relaxing. There is also loads to do - kayaking, paragliding, rafting, boat trips, cliff... More

We found this place by googling best beach hostels in Italy and it definitely lived up to the expectation. I was originally to stay 5 nights and canceled my other hostels and stayed 2 weeks. Martina is extremely helpful and generous in organizing flights/excursions/etc. Praia was my favorite stop in Europe. So beautiful, lots to do and see. 2 euros... More
