In Italy it's rare to find a hostel that occupies an entire building, and you may even find two hostels located on different floors of the same building. Most hostels in Italy are independently owned and run and many are even family-run.

Hostelling in Italy is somewhat different to hostelling in any other European country. Most hostels are really small guesthouses and hotels and many have rooms located on individual floors in a variety of properties; many don't even have a designated reception area. A lot of hostels in Italy have restricted arrival times so it is important to give accurate arrival times when booking as due to the fact many hostels have no reception area the owner waits for you at the hostel at your expected arrival time.
YHA hostels in Italy are some of the most interesting and varied in the world. Romantic villas that date back to the Renaissance, fantastic fortresses and old castles, enchanting ancient buildings and ultra-modern buildings house the YHA hostels.
Many Italian cities offer campsite accommodation as an alternative to staying in a hostel. These tend to be luxury camping villages and often have their own bars, restaurants and swimming pools. Accommodation on the campsites consists of cabins, bungalows or caravans and bedlinen is provided.
