Stayed in this fabulous hostel for 4 weeks this August and I miss it so much! Town itself is superb with so many Activities to do and the clear blue waters of the southern Italy coast are out of this world.

This place is AMAZING. Period. From the first moment we contacted the hostel, we received a very quick response from Martina, the hostel owner. We took a train from Salerno to Praia A Mare, and Martina was waiting for us at the station to pick us up. Martina is an amazing, kind and easygoing person, and an excellent host. She... More

This hostel is unique. You can tell the difference from the first moment you enter. It makes you feel like home. Don`t want to skip without mentioning that Martina and her dad are just great. Our plan was to stay only one night, but we ended up staying 3 nights. I`ll neveeeer forget my experience there.

This place is less of a hostel and more of a home for travellers. It is so obvious how hard Martina has worked to make the hostel unique and welcoming and she has definitely succeeded. I was absolutely gutted to leave but will definitely go back. Praia is not the easiest to get to but Ondaroad is so worth it.... More

“I recommend the tents! It took awhile to convince me to try it but as it turned out they were very comfortable and you get a nice breeze on a hot summers night. Otherwise the private rooms in the hostel are alsoe excellent and large enough to contain a whole family!”

“If you're going as a couple, Martina will put you up in a nice private room but if you're going as group of quite a few people, you'll be upstairs in the huge room with lots of other people. I think the private room costs a little bit more but definitely worth it for the privacy.”
