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

Martina and Pappi are by far the best hosts you will ever have. Martina is very helpful, knowledgeable and speaks about 7 languages fluently and is always there if you need anything. Not only can you use the lounge, chillout area upstairs and the expansive garden (with plenty of hammocks), Martina also lets you use her kitchen and fridge which... More

Ondaroad definitely deserves its status of being the best beach hostel in Italy. I was booked there for a few days and ended up staying a few weeks. I truly feel like I went there as a stranger and left as a member of the family. Martina and Pappi make you feel so welcome, and Martina has a wealth of... More

This hostel is fantastic. It's cosy and the friendliest hostel I've ever been to - everyone has dinner together every night and basically spends the days hanging out. I planned on staying here two nights but ended up staying five!
