This is the first hostel where I've not felt welcomed in at all. The staff is NOT friendly, they didnt make the beds for new guest untill late and people had to ask for it several times, they do not read emails you send in advance. Location is good, but with a lot of stairs (but that's expected in a city built on hills, I enjoyed my little work out's back to the dorm). Its ok to stay, but dont expect to much. There's hardly any wifi in Cinque Terre either ;)

We loved our room, it was exactly what we were looking for and a fun experience to walk the stair case and stay up so high in such a pretty little town. Thank you very much.

The place advertises themselves as a hostel but once you arrive is more of a apartments for let (focusing on romance!? With two twin beds tied together) We realized we got more than we wanted and inquired about switching and maybe saving money. We were on hour 40 of no sleep and were having trouble with the language barrier. The hostel manager ended up being very unprofessional, and rude. Even throwing money at a different customer. Space was fine but the jarring check in was terrible

Our room was far from the main street up many steps. The bathroom was particularly subpar with a broken toilet seat and shower head; we also had to ask for towels because none were in the room.

Great little places. Enough facilities for the stay. Would love to redecorate the rooms to remove dome clutter so their is more space. Wifi is ok in the office, better than nothing

This wasn't a hostel as we'd expected. Just as many beds in a very dated apartment as you could squeeze in. No hot water, dodgey lock on front door, creepy interior. One girl left crying aftet 5mins. After one night we moved apartment to be with our friend, same company

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.
