It was September when I arrived and the shuttle did not run very frequently and it was a really long walk to the train station to catch the train into the 5 villages. laundry was ridiculously over prices and the little market was open for very short hours. The staff were nice, but there are other camp grounds much closer to the terminal. This would maybe be good for a family camping trip but not ideal for someone who wants to spend most of their time in the cinque terre villages.

I love this place! Still here as a matter of fact. I ended up taking an adorable cabin that was only a bit more than the little tent cabinas. It has electric, an outdoor kitchen, and plenty of privacy with a little deck and tall plants around it. Michela in the office has been so helpful also. She seems to be able to speak at least 4 lanquages! and having someone speak English when I speak no Italian really helps. She has gone out of her way to help me on several occasions - above and bey
For being a camping sight, the value for money was great. The bathrooms were not close to our little room but that was okay. I loved the small rooms we had and it was simple and sweet. The only problem we had was loud neighbors, including a little boy screaming "Nein!!" early in the morning. The campus was cool though, almost like it had its own little community.
I loved my little tent and the bed was very comfy! I had to pay for two beds to get a tent, I would have been happy to pay for one and share with someone. Shuttle bus times are a bit irregular and it wasn't clear which type of bus would be collecting us from the station so when we didn't see one for an hour and a half, only regular buses, we assumed it was a no show and walked for 40 minutes with heavy luggage. Staff were very helpful and friendly, campsite was awesome. Would stay there again
Easy access with the free shuttle. It's pretty rough if you are not packed for a camping trip and the bathrooms are really far from the tents.
believe me, the place is awesome !!!! :)

Great stay would recommend. Very clean, cleaner than most hostels! Only problem is it's hard to socialise with others due to lack of communal areas. Free bus to station to get to cinque terra
