Hello, the ad is misleading as they use one room to make it look like it's really great. We up graded to the best room and it was great. That said towels were like carpet and the two dudes are shady. Cheers Norman

This is not a hostel, it's a series of rooms that are rented out via an agency. The people there are super shady - when you pay, GET A RECEIPT!


We arrived late and they helped us out with instructions to get to our place we were staying! That helped us out a lot! Great location, people have to realize that the towns are very hilly so of course it's going to be a climb! Had a great time, would definitely go back!


I had a good stay the first night in the room, however the second night wasn't the best. The reason is the walls are paper thin, and having what seemed to be about 12 people sharing a common room made it so every single door opening/closing and conversation was heard quite clearly in our room. That and the main office is so far away, it was a 15 minute walk to ask a question....up and down a mountain. Overall it wasn't terrible, but it wasn't great either.


Staff (Luciano) was extremely rude and violent. If you decide to book with them (something I would never recommend) , make sure to be placed in the rooms at the top of the hill. Otherwise, they will try to place you in a room with no lights, no windows, construction dust and extreme filth.


When booking the hostel it should be CLEARLY stated that you have to walk up 360 stairs to get to the apartment. If we would have known this we would have stayed elsewhere, as to not carry our 50 pound suitcases up this mountain. It is also not stated that the rooms do not have air conditioning, even a fan for that matter. In the amenities you are promised wifi, conveniently it is only provided in the office downstairs. Cleaning staff wakes you up at 8/9 every day. Overall we weren't pleased.

Our room was so killer! Right in town and the perfect size for my buddy and I. Room was clean, had a mini fridge, small bathroom and shower, and we even had a balcony. The balcony was definitely the cherry on top of a great experience in Riomaggiore. If you are thinking of staying in La Spezia and training in, don't. It is the same price to actually stay in this town as it is to stay outside of it, and you will have to pay to take the train in. Highly recommend and I hope to be back!


Loved this place, a bit pricey, but worth every penny. Very clean, and the staff we super nice.


Not at all the place we booked! Upon arrival we were informed that we'd been "upgraded" to a room with a private bathroom, but that it wasn't in the Case Rosse. I wasn't particularly happy with this, but he said it was non-negotiable. He lead us down a series of very sketchy back alleys and up many steep stairs into a damp, humid room. It was very clean, and we were given two beds and a bathroom, but there was no ocean/lemon tree view, and no wifi or evencell reception. No soap, lock was broken.
