The absolute worst I ever want to experience. The toilets didn't flush and the shower was completely gross. There was literally a hole in the bathroom wall filled with trash and goodness knows what else. The bedding was questionable and wasn't even changed before we arrived at the hostel. The location is the only positive if you ignore that there are between 10 and 15 flights of steep stone stairs to some of the apartments. The owner was rude and the price was INSANE for what we had. Thumbs down


The hostel was a bit of a hike up Riomaggiore, but definitely could have been worse. The people were helpful, just very busy and took a while to get to us when we were trying to check us in. My only real complaint was that there wasn't a locker or any place for me to lock up my stuff while we were gone for the day. Overall, it was slightly expensive, but one of the cheaper options anywhere in Cinque Terre, so we were happy.


Well located hostel, and the staff is awesome, always answered to all of our requests. There is no locker, but we felt really safe in Cinque Terre and that was not a problem. Sugestion: Let the wifi available all night long. It was not a big deal to live without wifi after 10pm, but it could be an improvement. Totally recommend it, keep the awesome work!


My dorm was super basic but the location was perfect. Bit sad there was no pretty view or anything but location was great... in the heart of riomaggiore and that's all that matters. Next time though I think I would stay in vernazza or manarolo...riomaggiore had less going on.


This hostel has a beautiful view of the ocean and a wonderful front patio. Although it is located not on the main road and it is quite the climb (about 15 min uphill) to get to it. Internet is only available during office hours and only at the main office, which is located far away from the hostel room. Great for a one night stay.


We were traveling in a group of 3 friends. When we arrived we were escorted to our room which was a 15 minute walk from the reception in the main part of town. The room was 1 bunk


We got a room with a sea view and kitchen which was nice! We had to walk 245 stairs to get to our room but I think anywhere you stay in cinque terre you would have this issue! You can only get wifi outside the main office between 10-8 which was a bit annoying, but otherwise was clean with good sized rooms.


Would not stay here for more than one night, we basically slept in a dorm in a room that was probably originally a dining room that got converted into a 3 bed dorm sleeper. Fairly unclean with drape-like bed sheets.


Very good hostel. Owners were friendly and relaxed, the rooms were good and cleaned everyday, location great. Thanks


Cinque Terre Holidays is close to the ocean blue. Because of its location, I'd recommend it to you. It's a mini apartment not a hostel but that is okay, because it has everything necessary for a pleasurable stay. The only complaint was the bathroom, which was a little small. But it was made up by the staff who really gave it their all. They went above and beyond to make my stay worthwhile, and their "hostel" has the best price values for many a mile.


If you are looking for a crazy experience this is the hostel, if you are picky dont go! The rooms are not in the main street but are close by. To get to our room, on the 8th floor we had to climb 12 sets of strairs (some very steep) counting from the street but I think this will happen in any appartment because the buildings are very old and have no elevators. We had a balcony in our room and the view was amazing. The toillet door didn't exist and there was no central air. The room was clean.


Simply gorgeous.


If you don't have any other choise here you'll find a bed to stay, but consider all this: 1. Rooms are spreader in several places and apartments in the town 2. WiFi only outside the small office of the owner, who doesn't allow guests to sit inside. 3. Don't expect any good answers of treat from the host. 4. Cleaness and maintenance are not well known here. The shitiest place I've been after 3 months around Europe. Anyway, still quite cheap


This isn't a great hostel but not terrible. It is really like a set of condos spread throughout town. It is very large, with a downstairs kitchen and bathroom, which is nice. However, it is not very well maintained. Many of the kitchen appliances were broken as was the bathroom door and duct tape on the shower. It is not very clean either. It is fine for a short stay though since you won't be spending much time at all in the hostel.


The bathroom was disgusting when we arrived, water all of the floor and wasn't cleaned the whole two days we were there. We had a fantastic room for five girls, the location was a bike of a hike to get to but the view was worth it! There is no wifi that we could find or access which was a pain. We shared an apartment type thing with another room, so we shared the bathroom, kitchen and terrace with them which can be fun. Apart from the no wifi and dirty bathroom it was reasonable for the price.


Lots of steps to the accommodation The microwave need to have proper plug And need to improve the cleanliness in the toilet and beds Very dusty


Great quirky little hostel. Could definitely re-arrange the dorm to utilise the space better and not make it look and feel so cramped. In a fantastic position, easy to find!


The shower was small and the door did not work properly. Also, the wifi only worked on the street immediately in front of the office during the day. They turned off the wifi in the evening.


We loved the place. We had some trouble with water on the bathroom floor after showering, but a scrape as you use to clean windows in the room would probobly make it dry in a couple of minutes.

Great place to stay in riomaggiore. Just a 5 minute walk from the water and very well located. Comfortable beds, nice room, big bathroom, you name it. Would 100% stay there again
