Lovely place cinque terre. Very clean the only problem is there no natural light but doesn't matter since you'll be out exploring the beautiful place. No wifi but then again not really a problem. this is a place to get away not to be inside, remember that.


i booked 2 rooms here 2 months ago and in my reservation i said i was going to get there at 20.00hs. So i got there at 19.20 and the reception was closed! i called the number written on the door and a guy told me to open the small door in front of me and to take the key with the "letter". there was a letter with the explanations how to get to our room. It was cold, raining and dark.. impossible to read the letter and IMPOSIBLE to find the hostel!! we had to find another place to spend the night!


This is not a hostel, more like an apartment in a cave. On the other side of the village from the reception. No natural light as the windows look at passages and tunnels. There were works on the passage, so noise and scaffoldings. A small kitchen right by the bunks and a tiny wet room. Not enough space if all the beds were taken. Some walls had the painting crumbling down. Old furniture and too soft mattress. So no great to spend time inside. It might be enough if you just want a place to crash.


We would have liked a kettle or electric jug to boil water. Stairwells could have been refreshed!


There were five of us that stayed in one room. It was very spacious and we loved it. We read other reviews and they mentioned the steps. That was the biggest surprise. There are almost 400 steps from the office to the room. It's a bit of a trek up there and it takes some will power but it's worth every step. Don't let that stand in your way. The view we had was overlooking the town and water. Only bad thing to say is there is no wifi in the room, only in the office.


This is not a hostel but more of one guy in an agency distributing people to rooms all over the (small) village. Ended up in a three bed "dorm" with two private rooms adjacent plus a balcony and a full kitchen. Place was nice, clean, in good location, a towel was provided but no lockers. The village is hilly so don't come here with a big suitcase but rather a small backbag. Atmosphere thanks to balcony and meeting people waiting at the agency was great. Would come back.


A drunk guy knocking at our window for all night, the room is dirty when we came and located in another place. The staff is not customer focus, we always have to wait for him at the office door for more than half an hour. And not friendly, especially when our check out time is a little bit late.so,dont go there!!!!you will definitely regret the trip!!!


The location was perfect, right near the train line, close to restaurants and the beach. The only criticism is that wifi is only available 200m from the room, back at reception and up a steep hill.

The room was spacious and clean. It was on the top of the hill and we had a great view. The owner was helpful. There is internet at the reception, which works well.

Stayed in an 8 share room. Super close to water, great town and we met some really cool people. Would recommend staying here to backpackers. The room had a kitchen and bathroom and the beds were separated into 5 and 3.


Room was a bit dingy and dark, didn't really matter as we were only sleeping there, but nothing to rave about. Room was clean though, and there was a fridge


We were a bit worried from reading previous reviews but the walk to the office and our private room was perfectly alright. Especially seeing as the town is built into a hill, it really has to be expected! We got a private double room with a ensuite bathroom which was excellent! Right off the main street and close to the station and marina. Good staff who showed us the room and gave us 10% off a local restaurant. There's also a book exchange and wifi at the main office.


Affitacamere patrizia was a lovely stay in Riomaggiore. Good location at the first beautiful town of the cinque terre. Also our 10dorm was located closer to the bottom of the hill which good! Unfortunately there was some construction going on which lead to some noise and water shortages but that's not really the hostels fault, and the owners were really lovely and tried to organise alternative showers for us. Clean sheets and bathrooms, wifi at reception and ceiling fans and small kitchenette.


It was nice and clean and functional, but it was quite the walk up the hill to get to our room. It was a very basic room, just a bed, lamp, and closet, we shared a bathroom with at least 4 other rooms. It was clean and certainly usable. But it was also the most expensive of our hostels. I didn't feel like we were getting very much for our money.


Was a quaint little hotel room as you would expect in this location. Was a little home for our few days there. Was comfortable and separate bathroom was great. Staff were friendly. Only downside was there was no wifi in the room and our room was in a separate building to reception so if we needed wifi we had to walk 10 mins up hill to get it in reception area. Overall a great little hotel room.


Nice central location in Riomaggiore, clean and comfortable.


The room was a renovated bathroom. I got the standard with private on suit but the bathroom was not attached to the room. I also gave them 290 because I thought she said the price was 289 and I did not receive change but then when she wrote the bill it was 280 so they just kept the money which is unprofessional. Worst was my sister book a private room for 85 euro a night and was put in a laundry room with a cot! I would not ever recommend this place and if you do see the room before you pay!

The whole room is very humid and smell bad, especially the toilet is very dirty. The place is so noisy, I couldn't fall asleep for the whole two nights.

Cinque Terre in general is small. Keep that in mind because there's not too any affordable places. They people in the front office were so nice! I broke my foot right before the trip and they accommodated me and my crew and let us stay in a space that wasn't too high up. Prepare for a but of a hike with luggage- everywhere. It's a hillside town and it's gorgeous! Great stay!
