For the comfort of our guests, we have a curfew and a silence time that we ask is respected. The price for a bed / room doesn't include the city tax of 2,50€ (per person, per night)
We highly recommended you read:
Please read our ‘Property Directions’ or visit our website if you are planning on arriving before 2:00 pm as this is most likely not your best option!
We have a 1:00 am curfew.
Between 10:00 am and 2:00 pm, we clean the hostel. During this time, you are welcome to stay in the hostel, however we ask that you remain in the common areas. Rooms and facilities are being cleaned and as such you will not be able to use them unfortunately.
If you have to catch an early train (before 7:15 am), we do not recommend you stay in our hostel the night before. Before this time, there are no public buses and taxis won’t be running yet (they cannot be booked the night before).
Don't try to walk from the train station - use the public service to the hostel (from La Spezia or Riomaggiore).
For more information on all of the above, please visit our website.

Please do not book this hostel if you are planning on catching an early train from La Spezia (before 7:10 am) as there is no public transport at this time of the day. Taxis cannot be booked the night before and are not available at this time of the morning.
Although Google Maps will tell you that we are only 5 km from La Spezia Centrale Station, this 5 km walk includes a seemingly never-ending, steep set of stairs! Please think very carefully before taking on this challenge (and definitely do not consider trying it if you have a wheelie suitcase – you will hate your life)!!!
Below you will find information on arriving at our hostel. For further information, bus timetables and direct links to Google Maps, you can head over to our website ostellotramonti.com
ARRIVING BY BUS FROM LA SPEZIA CENTRALE TO THE HOSTEL:
Before leaving the train station, you can purchase a bus ticket with the code '00' from the Tobacco Shop on platform one (1.50€). If you do not have time, tickets can also be purchased on the bus, however they are more expensive (2.50€)
To get to the bus stop, from the main exit of the train station, turn to your right and you will see a glass entrance to stairs and an elevator at the far end of the taxi rank, near the turn circle. Head towards this and take the elevator down to street level ('Via Fiume').
When you arrive at street level, turn right, following ‘Via Fiume’ for less than 50m until you reach 'Via Castelfidardo'. The bus stop you see here IS NOT the bus stop for the hostel so please do not wait here!
Cross the road here and walk down ‘Via Castelfidardo for about 300m until you arrive in ‘Piazza Benedetto Brin’. Piazza Brin is a square with trees and a fountain in the middle. It is situated at the corner of Via Castelfidardo and Corso Cavour. When you arrive at the square, the bus stop is on the far left side of the square, near the newspaper kiosk.
Take bus number 19. The journey takes about 15 minutes. Please ask the driver for ‘Ostello Tramonti’ so that they can tell you where to disembark. The bus stops directly out the front of the hostel.
Monday to Saturday the bus departs at 6:25 am, 6:50 am, 7:35 am, 11:26 am, 12:26 pm, 1:15 pm, 4:25 pm, 5:10pm, 6:10 pm and 8:10pm.
Sundays and public holidays the bus departs only at 1:26 pm and 7.36 pm.
There are also additional services from a different bus stop. At 8.40 am, 2.10 pm and 7.05 pm (Except Fridays and Sundays – continue reading). The bus stop for these services is in ‘Viale Garibaldi’, near the traffic lights at the intersection of ‘Corso Cavour’ and ‘Viale Garibaldi’. To get there from the bus stop in Piazza Brin, follow Corso Cavour to the left for about 300 m until you reach the intersection. On Fridays, you will need to take the bus from Corso Cavour at 2.05 pm or 7.05 pm. To get there, continue along Corso Cavour until you reach the bus stop at 142 Corso Cavour.
If you arrive on a Sunday or Public Holiday, as there are limited buses, we suggest you catch the public bus from Riomaggiore. Riomaggiore is one stop by train (approx. 8 minutes) from La Spezia Centrale. Buses depart from Riomaggiore at 2:25 pm, 4:00 pm and 6:40 pm. The bus stop is in ‘Via Colombo,’ near the bottom of the main road in the town (continue reading below).The journey takes 15 min. Ask the bus driver to stop at ‘Ostello Tramonti’.
Please note that there are no buses on 1st May and 15th August. On Easter Sunday, Easter Monday and the 2nd of June, the schedule will be that of a Sunday.
Sunday morning and public holidays, on request, we can drive to La Spezia Central station (1.50€ per person, one way) at 8 a.m. or 10:30 a.m. This service must be booked in advance as we have limited space available. From Monday to Saturday you can reach the train station of La Spezia by public bus.
ARRIVING BY BUS FROM RIOMAGGIORE TO THE HOSTEL
ATTENTION: This service only runs from the 18th of March to the 2nd of November!
If you arrive by train to Riomaggiore, (the first village of Cinque Terre) you can reach us easily by public bus. The bus is generally white with National Park stickers on it but it can also be blue or green. On the front, it should say ‘Biassa’ or ‘Telegrafo’.
When you arrive at the train station in Riomaggiore, exit the train station and turn right, taking the tunnel into the town.
At the end of the tunnel you will arrive at ‘Via Colombo’ (the only road in the town). The bus departs from the bottom of the town. You should see a ‘Fermata’ sign near the bottom of the road and the bus will stop here.
Every day, the bus departs from the bottom of the village at 2:25 pm, 4:00 pm and 6:35pm.
It departs from the top of the village at Lavaccio Carpark at 2:29 pm, 4:04 pm and 6:39 pm however we suggest taking it from the bottom of the town as it is often full by the time it arrives at the top.
Alternatively, you can also book our shuttle service from Riomaggiore in the evening by email. Our shuttle departs from ‘Lavaccio Car Park’ which is at the top of ‘Via Colombo’ (the only road in the town). When you arrive at the top of the street, you will notice a small roundabout and a carpark. This is where you need to wait for out shuttle. It takes about 7 minutes to walk from the bottom of the town.
ARRIVING BY TAXI:
From La Spezia Centrale to the hostel, the taxi service costs 20€.
From the hostel to La Spezia the taxi costs 25€.
FROM THE HOSTEL TO THE SEA:
We offer a shuttle service to and from Riomaggiore - the first village on the sea. The journey takes about 8 minutes and costs only 1 €, per person, one way. For guests that stay 3 nights or more, we offer the shuttle service FREE OF CHARGE!
Times for the shuttle service change depending on seasonal demands but are generally between 8:30 am and 10 am in the mornings and 8 pm and 10 pm in the evenings.
If you would like more information or need to book this service for your arrival, please contact us by email.
We are not able to drive to Riomaggiore in the afternoon - you will need to use the public bus. The public bus departs from outside Ostello Tramonti at 2:55 pm, 4:37 pm and 7 pm.
BAG DROP OFF
Although you are welcome to drop your bags at the hostel before heading to Cinque Terre, we would recommend using the luggage store in Riomaggiore instead. This is for your convenience only. By the time you come up to the hostel and then wait around for a bus to head back to Cinque Terre, you will lose a fair bit of time. Facilities in the hostel will be closed for cleaning until 2:00 pm and restaurants and shops in the town are closed.
What to do instead: If you arrive in the area before 2:00 pm, we recommend leaving your bags in one of the secure luggage stores at either La Spezia Train Station (Platform 1) or opposite the train station in Riomaggiore. This means that you can enjoy some time in Cinque Terre or La Spezia first and then catch either of the public services to the hostel later in the afternoon or contact us to book a shuttle from Riomaggiore in the evening. The luggage stores are cheap and secure. We want to ensure you enjoy your time here and make the most of it. As there are no public buses leaving Biassa until later in the afternoon, you will not have a way of leaving once you are here and everything in the town is closed during this time!
If you have arrived in La Spezia and wish to head to Cinque Terre, you can catch a train from La Spezia to Riomaggiore and leave your bags there. It is only one stop by train and about an 8 minute journey. From there you can arrive at the hostel easily, later in the day.
