Cheap Hostels in Matera


The region of Basilicata may be overlooked by many visitors to Italy, but those who do go to Basilicata most often do so in order to visit Matera. It’s a place somewhat caught in time – so much so that it’s been used as the backdrop for several films that were set 2,000+ years ago.

Many of the people who live in Matera live in homes carved right into the hills, but the chances of finding budget accommodation that’s in a cave are slim. Your next best bet is to find a hostel in Matera or a small, budget hotel in the historic center.
