Hosteria la Quinta  is a rustic guesthouse in Alausi, handy for passengers on the famous train down the Devil's Nose.

A convenient place to stay for those taking the celebrated train down the Devil’s Nose zig-zag from Alausi, the Hosteria La Quinta is a typical rustic guesthouse with whitewashed walls, roof beams and patio garden decorated with pot plants. A brick-walled open fireplace keeps the place warm and cosy, while the polished wood floors are most attractive. Guest rooms are of varying size and furnished in a somewhat Spartan fashion.

The property is set on a hillside and some rooms have expansive views over the valley and the town of Alausi. Little English is spoken, but service is friendly and staff helpful.
