The Hostel Ostello Santa Maria di Castello is part of the Italian Youth Hostels (AIG). It is situated in a sixteenth-century cloister with a large green space in the oldest district of the city. Thanks to the geographical position of Alessandria, the structure becomes an excellent base from which to discover all of the Monferrato with its landscape of rolling hills covered with vineyards and ancient villages with castles steeped in history. This area has recently become a World Heritage Site.
