I was in one of the singles...it isn't actually at 94 Colombo, but on another street a couple blocks away. Up a couple flights of stairs but unfortunately without a view. Bathroom was decent but slightly odd (no wall on shower, so water goes everywhere). Good location. Wifi doesn't work.

La cucina nella camera e' stata una buona fortuna per noi.

I booked a shared bedroom, but got a shared apartment (not a problem). Just to mention again, the adress mentioned in the site is from the office reception, not the room, but it was quite near in my case (other guests were not so lucky). The apartment was not cleaned everyday and there is wi-fi available only next to the office (not in the rooms). Do not expect any kind of support of the staff. You will barely see on guy.

Cinque Terre is unique place. Simply beautiful. The room was on the middle floor in a building of the main street. 117 steps to it ;) No joking. Anyway, the view was worth it. No wifi availabld.

Hope that your roommates are amazing. I lucked out and had a great time here meeting people but had it not been so, the apartment itself leaves little to miss.

The hostel was ok. It is well located and the owner is really friendly and helpful. The shower was not good and there isn't any locker. And you dont have wifi at room, you should go to the office. So there were some deficiency but i still recommend this hostel.

Good location - in the center of Riomaggiore. The hostel is made up of several flats in an apartment building that have each their own kitchen and washroom. It's keep decently clean by the staff. No real common area. No wifi in the rooms, only in the office in the next building.

We booked a room for 5, tiny but nice view on the sea. The staff was really nice, the location is good (some stairs to climb but you're quickly in the main street), the only bad point for me was the bathroom (quite big, but the toilet is in it so it's complicated because it's the only bathroom on the floor, and the shower is awful -water either boiling or cold). But anyway we had a nice time and it's a good deal for the price!

The balconies have spectacular views of Riomaggiore! The only negatives were a shower that only has two settings (scalding or freezing) and a sign on the toilet that asked you to not flush anything (including toilet paper).

The hostel is located in a brilliant spot, right in the hustle of riomagorrie! Which is perfect! Just a few moments from the harbor and the beach.. Roberto and Stella were lovely and played beautiful music during the day on the piano, they were friendly and helpful.

The reason that you stay here is because you are on a budget and want to stay in one of the 5 cities. I booked late and this hostel was the only option in my price range. The location is amazing as it is right in riomaggiore. Beyond that the beds are average, there are no lockers, doors dont really lock, kitchen has the bare minimum. But if your on a budget and are up for adventures, I say go for it.

Overall bad customer service, the owner is not very nice and doesn’t give you a lot of information. In fact it's more a small apartment, there was no staff. There was a kitchen but not so well equipped (no fire to light the gas cook, no spices, salt or pepper…), little security, no locker, no wifi in the apartment. Finally, it was a cheap place for such a touristic location, so we were satisfied. So don’t expect a comfortable place at all, it’s quite boor, but not expensive.

Our flight was delayed and so then we missed our train and the next one didn't arrive until 12:30 am. I tried calling several times but there was no answer. The number is different than what is shown here. Finally I get there and call the number given on the door. Roberto, the owner, yelled at me called me a rude idiot with lots of expletives. After berating me for 5 minutes he finally told me where the key was hidden. Overall bad customer service and the office (only wifi) was rarely open

Basically there is no real staff. It is more like an apartment. The owner just gives you the keys or leaves them in the mail box then you have to find the place which was in another building than the office. Otherwise it was a clean place with good beds and a good location.
