It's a hike up to the hostel but well worth it. Wonderful view overlooking the water and lemon trees. The staff wasn't very helpful or friendly, but would still recommend because of it's great and beautiful location. The staff didn't provide much info, so we were mostly on our own. But for an independent traveler it's perfect

I stayed for 3 nights at the hostel, originally booking for a mixed dorm bedroom. When I arrived the hostel had been overbooked so I was moved to a 3 bed room with another random traveler who was in the same situation. The rooms do not look like any of the pictures on the internet, the decorating is very unique. There is a mighty walk uphill and upstairs to the room but the view from our window was amazing.

Great place to stay in Cinque Terre! Riomaggiore is a lovely little village and this is located in a great spot. The apartment type styles are quite old with lots of random furniture but is all very clean and pretty good kitchen, staff don't speak much English but were helpful when we needed them - no lockers or anything so a bit limited security but enjoyed the stay very much!

It was like having our own little apartment in Cinque Terre with a full kitchen and everything (minus the fact we shared it with four other people!) get ready for lots of stairs and uphill walking but this place was great and the town of Riomaggiore is really cute.

I went to this apartment with an open mind. It is nothing special, but in cinque terre it is more about having a bed to rest your head than what you maybe want from other hostels. Apartment was small, had a good enough kitchen and bathroom and was cleaned well. No aircon but just slept with the windows open. Not very secure ie no locker or safe but I wasn't worrying about my stuff as the place seems quite safe. Good place to stay as a young backpacker.

A lovely haven in a picturesque town. I could list out some negative things about our stay, like how the pictures online in no way matched where we actually stayed, the amount of steps we had to climb every time we went up to our apartment, or just how minuscule the room actually was. But it's a cliff-side town so I feel like it would have been like that anywhere we stayed, and the location was fantastic! And our room came with a balcony which was a much welcomed surprise.

While our room had a great view and was well located for able bodied people - it was right above the train station in Riomaggiore which meant your sleep was constantly interrupted by the train whistles and announcements. This establishment, doesn't serve breakfast - and doesn't offer suggestions about where you might be able to eat breakfast close by.

Overall good budget place to stay if you're not fussy. Clean rooms, nice view. The garden on the terrace requires maintenance, it obstructs half the view, hangs into the doorways and attracts mosquitoes. There are stairs on the walk to the rooms, the boy that takes you to your room offers no help whatsoever with your bags, So don't stay if you can't carry your own bag. Decor in room and b.room could be de-cluttered.

Be aware that the pictures you see probably won't be the place you actually stay. This place is cheap for a reason-- there is no place to lock up your stuff during the day and no towels are provided. Also, no internet access, even though it was advertised. It was, however, kept clean and the staff was good about keeping sheets and blankets laundered. My fellow hostel guests were pleasant and courteous. If you're looking for anything more than a bed, don't stay here.

We really enjoyed the stay. The room was nice, equipped with a comfortable bed and a fridge. Although it was located 157 stairs higher than the reception it was worth the climb. You can reach it by car to take the luggage but there is no parking so you will have to park your car somewhere up the road or pay 20€ per day and leave it in the parking in the city.

Basically, you get an apartment and share it with other travelers. It works well. The location is fantastic, the unfortunate part is actually getting there, you will climb a mountain. The staff is average.

I'm unsure why this hostel had such a good rating. For starters the directions said we had to be there at 5, so we spent extra money getting there on time then didn't have to be there until 7. We paid and requested a 7 bedroom dorm and got put in a 10. There was only wifi at their office from 1030-730, they weren't friendly, no security or facilities at all. Every spot in Riomaggiore would have a good location. Wouldn't recommend this one.

The room was settled in a sort of container, extremely dirty with a lot of dust and cobwebs. The location with the terrace was nice but everything looked dirty and careless. Definetely not a good value for what we paid even in an expensive place like the cinque terre.

Clean and the price is right. But a bit far from major attractions.
