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.
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.
Wifi only works downstairs lobby really, no maps, breakfast was basically crackers and jelly. Location isn't bad and only a 5 minute train ride from the cinque Terra's which is the only reason I can understand the price.
I went to extend my stay before getting there and they were very helpful and responsive. Great staff cooperation

No AC so it was HOT! Staff was rude. Other than that, an okay stay.
Only microwavable foods for two nights is tough, other than that it was pretty clean and had helpful staff!
Nice no ugh hostel for the price, but pretty bare bones (poor breakfast and required to handle all your own linens). Staff as friendly helpful.
Loved it. The atmosphere is very relaxed and the hostel and is in a great location but NOTE: this is not in one of the cinque terre (CT) towns. That being said, it's much quieter and much less touristy (a big plus) but still a quick ride from CT. Free breakfast and wifi are good; their outdoor terrace is a great place to eat dinner and watch the sunset. Staff was helpful but we didn't interact with them much. My one gripe is the one bathroom for the whole dorm--this necessitated some waiting.
This place was absolutely wonderful. The lady at the reception desk was one of the kindest, most helpful person that I have ever met. The hostel is more like a hotel--very clean, plenty of hot water, and felt more than safe. It's a bit off of the beaten path from "cinque terre" but is definitely worth the 4 min train ride and 20 min walk from the station. I actually booked an extra night because I liked the beach town so much! Only bad comment is that the wifi was only on the first floor.
We stayed in Levanto for nearly a week. This hostel is in a great location. It's close to the train station, the beach and trails that head towards Cinque Terre. The staff are knowledgeable and friendly. We stayed in a six bed ensuite dorm that was cleaned daily. There is a fridge and microwave provided and complementary breakfast that consists mostly of bread. Great place to stay if you want to relax and visit Cinque Terre without constantly being surrounded by tourists.
Great location, it's just 10 min from train station. Staff is very friendly. Breakfast could be better. But i would come and stay here again.
