Staff at reception very not nice, rude and don't take time to help us when we needed it. Showers are durty and lots of them don't work. They say wiFi all over camping and it's not even true. Also, they say that their is a Market on camping but it's been close for 2 years. Very not happy with my experience.

Tent cabins were great for 2 people. Bathrooms and showers were great and really clean. Would have been nice to have a kitchen not just BBQ area.
A kitchen for the guests to make food would be appreciated since it is a camping and there are not many places around.
We had a great night here, wish we had stayed longer rather than changing to B
Overall acceptable. Every other place to stay in Cinque-Terre are very expansive so 13 euros for a night is quite good. The location is poor but there is a free shuttle to the train station to go to other villages. The staff were helpful. But for the price we pay, we hoped that there would have been something to help us cook on the BBQ (they charge you the stuff). The mini market is expansive too....
Great little place away from the hustle and bustle. They had free shuttles going though the day and evening so we could get to the trains to check out Cinque Terre. Facilities are good staff are nice. If your on a budget perfect place to stay
We got a tent, and the tent was actually quite nice, it even had a lock. Staff was very helpful, good wifi. FYI tent had no electricity or light so be sure to bring a flashlight. No lockers but you could leave stuff at the reception. Need to take the free shuttle to the train station (5 minutes ride) and then the train to one of the 5 cinque terre towns (~3 euros, 15 minute train ride, somewhat frequent trains).
Biggest improvement I would suggest is publishing the free shuttle times on website so when you arrive at train station for first time you know how to get out there
We really enjoyed our time here! It was the perfect place to stop when visiting Cinque Terre, and Deiva Marina was a lovely town. Although the internet only works at the reception, it works really well! If you're in the tents, there was a communal BBQ, however no utensils, but made for a fun cooked meal and a break from eating out!
Nice and helpful staff to solve your enquiries. It is quite nice campsite with hot water and basic needs, dont expect it has hostel quality. It got free shuttle to the campsite and its convenient to reach, i would recommend this.
It was a cool camping site to stay at. There was a free bus which ran every hour to the town or campsite. It looks like its out of the way but its nice and peaceful. Its the perfect place to stay if you are visiting the Cinque Terre townships. The local beach is also nice
it was amazing...surrounded by stunning nature in a cosy chilled place. fruittrees and singing birds everywhere...felt incredible. and Deiva Marine is a cute small place...will come back for sure!
Besides the hostel not being located in the Cinque Terre area or La Spezia like it said in the directions, it was amazing!!! Its a campground out of Deiva Marina, so you ahve to take a train and shuttle to get to campsite. The campsite is amazing! We got our own little cabin with double beds and it had a cooking area of our own and everything. Bathrooms were very clean, and its so nice to be out in the woods then go to the beach
Way too expensive, showers were not clean,

I wish I could put higher than 100% for value for money. Would go back in a heart beat. The only problem is that although the cabins do lock. I could stick my finger in from outside and unlock the door. So it isn't super secure in that way. However they told us that there has never been a problem with theft though. Located north of Monterosso, you gain access through deva marina. (not La Sfinge)
A great place to stay. The cabins are adorable.
Great place to stay, I loved the location because it was away from all the hustle and bustle of cinque terre but close enough to get there without any problems. This isn't luxurious but it's a perfect place to go to be in nature but still have a warm bed. Bring a headlamp because there is no electricity in the tents!
The staff here was absolutely wonderful! The nice lady at the front desk even got us some towels because we forgot ours. The location wasn't great. It took us at least 30 minutes to walk to the train station but they did have a shuttle running during the day which was very nice. Good value for your money if you don't mind camping or being in a remote location.
Camping La Sfinge was the best value for your money. The location is beautiful--a peaceful distance away from all of the tourists. The cabins we stayed in were clean and comfortable. The bathroom facilities were very clean! Not to mention, our host was kind and helpful. The distance from the Cinque Terre was not a problem, because she offers the train schedules and a regular shuttle service to the station. I would recommend this place to anyone wanting to hike in Cinque Terre for the weekend.
Great if you are looking to do the camping thing.
