We spent only one night and for that it was ok. The view from the window and the terrace on the top was amazing. The room was clean with a small TV. The bathroom was clean with a hairdryer, but was very small that it was really hard to reach the toilet seat. So I would recommend it only for short stays and also because Corniglia is not the best starting point to see Cinque Terre.

It was good and clean, the only small issue was that the hotel was hard to reach. I had emailed them and called them multiple times with no answer regarding our check-in time. Thankfully we were able to reach them not too late in the evening and do our check-in, but that was a little bit stressful at first! Great location, nice people, very clean, comfy bed though :-) I recommend it.

Great! We are so happy about it. The apartment was really lovely located and was supercosy. We were really happy about everything. The only thing to complain about was that the stuff couldn't talk so good english and that it was a bit difficult to find the place where collect the keys. Otherwise everything was great and we would love to stay there again someday.

The lady was very friendly and nice even though we arrived 3 hours earlier. For what we paid we had a little apartment with a kitchen! it was amazing. Nice little place.

We had our own little private apartment in Corniglia which was good however it was expensive and there was no wifi. Location was also good being in the middle village. Overall, it was great having a little apartment to ourselves for the two nights that we were there!

An apartment rental type of place. Met a women who gave us a key and she was super friendly. The place we stayed in was super nice and comfortable for the cost.

As one of the client told, there is no terrace outside the room. It seems that the owner of the house has rooms in different buildings and in different locations. The room we lived in is exactly the room described by one of the previous client, with only one small window over the door. But the facilities are quite good, and the price is also ok comparatively.

Nothing special as a place to stay. The bed was dreadful and the shower wouldn't give us hot water for longer than 2 minutes. Everything else just passed the test. Wouldn't go back!

Lovely owner picked us up late at train station night we arrived (20min walk to town) cause our trains got extremely delayed. Communication very difficult bet us cause she only speaks Italian and we don't. One day got back to apartment to find our door open with 2 men in there doing repair work. No warning or anything. Happened 2 days: people kept coming while we were resting, making lot of noise.. Pics shown on hostelworld were not ones of the apartment we were given. Not much hot water. Dusty.

Fantastic. When we showed up to their office the man new barely any English, but he led us to what turned out to be an entire apartment to ourselves, handed us the key and left. We had a living room, kitchen and bathroom in addition to a bedroom all to ourselves at a very good price. The owner was so trusting, we never actually saw him again and if we wanted to we could've probably gotten away without paying, but it was such a pleasant stay it was more than worth the cost.

Hostel was clean, in a great location, and the people who ran it were extremely nice. I'd recommend this hostel to anyone visiting Venice who doesn't mind being away from the tourists.

Really lovely place with an ocean view. Corniglia is a nice place to stay if you aren't planning on doing the entire hike, since it's in the middle of the 5 towns. Be prepared to drag your luggage up quite a few stairs to get to the hotel. The free coffee was pretty nasty, but there's a nice cafe down the road by the church.

This was one of the most delightful places we stayed!!! The woman who ran it was very friendly. The balcony is not attached to the apartment, but is amazing! It's easy to take your dinner up there to enjoy the surreal view! Very private, comfortable, nestled in this cute village. Kitchen was great to have. Bring groceries from outside 5terre. It's quite a walk up hill from the train station, so either catch the shuttle, store things in la spezia, or pack light Wish we could have stayed longer!!!

Casa Caterina wasn't at all what we expected and saw on the pictures in the internet. It was on a ground floor with no window and the only natural light we had was from the main door that you could open down to half way. Our "deluxe" room was in another building from the main one, with no terrace or sea view as it's advertise. We only stayed one night and then we searched some other room for the other 2 nights.

Room was okay -- clean and good spot in lovely Corniglia. A/C didn't work. Stayed 4 nights and room wasn't cleaned, but probably no big deal for shorter stays. Owner knew hostelworld price to the Euro; always nice not to have to haggle. Real redeeming quality was access to nearby terrace, which was a great spot to have an afternoon drink while enjoying 5 Terre views.

The family who rents out the apartments (Orietta and Co.) was very unfriendly and unavailable to us. Plus, the apartment is not as nice as it looks on the pictures. It is extremely dark, has only one window with hardly any daylight.

Lovely place and lovely people! Would definitely go back there and I would definitely recommend this place. Corniglia is a small village but still it has got marvelous beaches
