Lovely stay, one of the scarce possibilities to pay a reasonable price for a good little apartment in a very expensive tourist area. The apartment is just at the beginning of the main street going uphill and close to the train station, so it isn't difficult to reach it even if you carry heavy bags. The stairs are steep but expect this everywhere in 5 terre, that's what makes the towns so charming. Reception guys very welcoming and friendly, I'd definitely recommend it


Davide was a lovely host, great location.

Our stay at GiGi was incredible. Sara was so easy to communicate with and greeted us on the street upon our arrival. Our room was spacious and had a great kitchenette and sitting area. The bathrooms always had great water pressure and never ran out of hot water. The location of the hostel is great as it is right at the bottom of the hill that makes up Riomaggiore (great if you are carrying a lot of luggage). There are grocery stores, restaurants and cafes all within a few steps of the building!


The accommodation was in a great location. It was quiet, clean and comfortable. The bathroom floor did get very wet from the shower. Staff were very friendly. Stairs to the room were very steep and hard to get up with heavy bags or if you were elderly.

This hostel was very classy and well furnished! The location is incredible--just a short walk from the train station, and thankfully not much of a climb. If you want to stay in the heart of Cinque Terre, this hostel is perfection!
