I was there for 3 nights. The hostel is really close to the beach and about 15 minutes from the station. Very easy to get to cinque terre from levanto. There is no kitchen in the hostel and I was a bit disappointed, but it's my fault that I forgot to check it before booking. There is a nice balcony, but they close at 11pm no matter you're having a nice chat or few drinks there.
We really enjoyed our stay here, we were only there for one night but wished we stayed two. Big rooms and a locker which was nice. Not in Cinque Terre but close enough that you still get the vibe of it without it being quite so touristy. Staff was really helpful. We did the walk from Levanto to Monterosso and would highly recommend it. Plus it's free rather then paying for the Cinque Terre pass.
The hostel should 1) have a common room with a television or music to encourage others to interact 2) the rooms were not cleaned thoroughly every day and that is must. I good sweeping of the floors makes patrons more comfortable.
The hostel has a lot of different aged people (I think there might have been a children summer camp here as well?). It didn't really make much of a difference. My room has "normal" aged backpackers. It was a very quick walk to the beach and center of Levanto. Be warned, this hostel isn't actually inside the Cinque Terre; however, it is a very easy train ride to the 5 towns. It made for an easy home base with access to all the glory that is CInque Terre.
The service was fine and location was great (less than 10 minutes walking from beachside Levanto) but the only issue I had was that the wifi only worked in the main lobby area and not in the rooms. You pay for what you get here.
The location is perfect, very close to the beach and if you like to go in cinque terre Levanto is a cheaper base point. The hostel is aesthetically good, rooms are big and bathroom is too big. Problem begins if you want to charge your phone or another device close to your bad during the night. You just can't. Breakfast is included but poor, and you have to pay for a second (terrible) coffe. I used a lot of Hostel and I never seen one with a reception that closes during night or at midday!

Great location for a fraction of the price of Cinque Terra! Hostel is a good base camp but it is not the best place to meet new people.
It's right near the beach and also right at the entrance to the hiking trail over to the 5th town of cinque terre. It was a greatplace to spend a few nights.
The hostel was perfect! And very well located! We loved the city
Good experience. Breakfast was terrible and the WiFi was in and out, but it's an inexpensive option in a nice location.
Good location, beds are uncomfortable and you can feel the springs, washrooms are not as clean as it could be, but great value for money. Wifi only works in the hallways.
A 10 minute walk from the train station, 5 minutes to the beach, very close to the center of town (with restaurants, shops, and the usual touristy shops), a hiking trail literally right out the front door- a great place to stay very close to but not in one of the 5 towns. Everything was very clean, breakfast was pretty basic (a roll, jam, coffee) and I wish there were cooking facilities....as for atmosphere, I could hear people chatting on the terrace late into the night.
Friendly staff and location near coliseum. No atmosphere if you are looking to socialize or party. No bunks which was nice. Would stay again if up for a quiet night. No lockers.
LOVED the location - such a beautiful town and great base for exploring Cinque Terre. Helpful staff and rooms are a good size. Only issue was the wifi didn't go to the rooms...only in reception area. Thanks for such a great stay though!!
Had a grea stay here, very clean, very nice rooms, plenty of storage & great location - perfect place to do the cinque terre from.staff were excellent although the lady on the front desk has obviously said the same thing many many times and might be sick of it! If you're here to meet other travellers then maybe not so good as it's really spread out as it's so huge and no one really uses the common areas, but if you're lucky enough to get great people In your dorm as I was then it's excellent!
The hostel is clean. It is easy to find from the train station and easily accessible (12 minutes walk). Wifi was very good. The beds were not really comfortable and the staff isnt always around, so it can be inconvenient (we had to wait 1h to check in). Finally, there is no luggage room, so on your last day, you leave your luggages in a common room, which everyone can access.
Good backpackers hostel. Reception isn't always open to check in, but when they are they are very kind and helpful. Free breakfast which consists of stale break and watered down juice so take my advice and sleep in. Cleaning ladies come in at about 11 am and try to be as noisey as possible. Very clean. Decent wifi. Lockers but I didn't know how to use them. Pretty close to the train to cinque terre. Very close to a hiking trail to cinque terre. I would stay here again
Lindo hostel, muy bien ubicado, recomendable! Lo único que internet funciona en el hall no en las habitaciones pero el resto esta perfecto!
Great instruction from the train. Super helpful and lovely lady on the front desk.
This hostel was fantastic! Only one stop from the cinque terre by train, close to beaches, shops and beautiful parks. The rooms are very clean and large, and beds comfortable. All rooms with large lockers. Staff are very helpful and caring too! Breakfast included too :) will recommend to all family and friends.
