The rooms aren't particularly nice, but the view sure is! Thin walls, acceptably clean, wonderful terrace with sea-view. Up on the hill and away from the tourist crowds, but just about 10-minutes walk to the main street.
The reception is on the main road but the hostel itself needs to walk 3 minutes up to the residence. If you have luggage with you, don't consider this one. The reception isn't 24 hour so we see some ppl waiting outside for the reception to open but gave up at last. The door is too hard and old to open which we called the reception to open for us. The reception was friendly. The facilities is pretty basic but enough.
Amazing room with a large balcony overseeing the sea. I will come back there, amazing experience!

It does the job if you only expect an uncomfortable bed to spleep.
Stayed for one night-nice place to stay. Beds were comfortable and there was a kitchen available in my room. There is no wifi available in the rooms. Not a place to meet tons of people but very pleasant.
Good location but you never know what you're going to get. This place owns many rooms in various apartments throughout the city. Some are better than others. Some have no common room to meet others, some do. No laundry option. The staff always seem a bit too stress and busy to help you...but then again, the city is small and manageable enough that you'll be able to figure things out on your own. I would say the 2 best places to stay are Riomaggiore, Vernazza, and Manarola.
The location was great, just off the Main Street and near the station, but we booked a 5 person room and there were 7 people staying in the room. No wifi and the staff weren't that available. Otherwise it was clean and gave us what we needed, as we spent most the day hiking so it was a good place to crash at night.
So glad I booked a place in one of the towns it was a fantastic location. It was small but didn't feel cramped.
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.

Only huge bummer was no wifi unless in the office.
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.
