The place is nice and quite. The owners are really friendly people. You won't feel as you are talking "unamed-hotel-workers", but with real people instead. The beach is amazing! some with black pebbles and some with white pebbles, which gives an incredible blue tone to the already blue water. Great place to take a rest for a few days.

I really loved this hostel, Martina, Papi, Symba, Diego and Naymar make it so welcoming, really beautiful and chilled out place. Papi cooked a great dinner one night and it felt like we were all just sharing a house together rather than a hostel. The beaches and area around are stunning - definitely do the boat tour, best morning of... More

Praia a mare is one of the most beautiful places i visited on my last trip to sicily and Calabria. Martina and papi are great hosts. I have recommended this hostel to many many travellers and no one ever complained. DO YOUR SELF A FAVOUR, if your already travelling to Sicily (can easily get here from Catania and Palermo) or...

My memories of Onda Road Beach Hostyle are among the best from any of my globetrotting. It all started with the owner Martina, who waited two hours for my delayed night train to arrive at Praia a Mare, then drove me to the hostel and cooked me pesto pasta after midnight. The next morning I awoke to an invitation to... More

I can not say this place is very good. The hostel itself is just an old house. It is really very dirty in this house. And as the other traveller said, it is not professional management. ''Breakfast included'' - that means you have to wait for your pancake like a homless with a plastic plate. Everything in this house is... More
