Staff was very kind, hostel building is historic place. check in time is not comfortable.
A breath of fresh air! So affordable! Staff are so friendly! Within walking distance to station, which gives access to all 5 towns. Bathrooms always clean. Great showers. Wifi ok when not everyone using it. Levanto was lovely. Didn't like the top bunks. Breakfast was ok, your typical budget breakie, but satisfactory. Don't follow the directions they give you. Ask at the info desk at the station for a map instead. Thanks Ospitalia del Mare!
Very well located in Lepanto. Very good COLASIONE.
friendly staff, good location close to beach and centre of town. bathroom was exceptionally clean, dorm rooms big enough and huge lockers!
For an old hospital it does a sound job at the hostel game. Super friendly owner and good base if you want discover that Cinque Terre thing people are raving about. Ticks all the boxes, clean and modern. Worth the pennies as there's not much choice around here. Key selling point for those wallet conscious travellers: Staying in Cinque Terre is expensive mainly due to no large supermarkets where as Levanto has a few! No kitchen but a fridge and space to make a ham sandwich so win!!
Most definitely will staty again. Extremely clean, roomy, great bathroom in room. The first hostel where each bed has an actual wardrobe to hang things and store your bag. Bed linen and towels exceptionally clean. Great staff and top location. Ten minute walk from train station. Definitely would recommend and stay again. So glad I stayed in Levanto rather than one of the five Cinque Terre towns. Almost the best hostel I've stayed in.
Directions are really not helpful, recommend googling it as following the road signs takes you all over town. Internet is only on the main floor and you essentially sit in park benches to check your emails. Good location though, close to the trails. Bathrooms in the room and good full sized lockers for your stuff. Breakfast is early and fairly basic.
It was great to have so much space a cupboard for everyone in the room even a table to sit at. The staff were really helpful. The reception does close at certain times during the day but as i am totally down with Italys idea of afternoon siesta i did not mind at all. Its really close to the beach and a lovely little social park with resteraunts etc. The train station is about 15 minutes easy walking through a lovely little town. easy to get to and from Cinque Terre and also has a hiking trail.
Clean, secure and staff was willing to stay after the check-in deadline when I called them and told them we missed one of our train connections (they did say they would've locked us out had we not called). First night we were there though, people were yelling outside the room until 2:30 with no response from the staff. It also seemed like few people staying here were interested in socializing with everybody in our room in bed by 11:00pm and no real social rooms, hence the yelling in the halls.
Good location, walking distance to beach and town centre. Breakfast was very disapointing, a bread roll and some condiments. It could be better if they could expand their kitchen facilities to more than a microwave and fridge to include a sink etc. Staff were fantastic.
Staff were very helpful, good location, huge lockers and really clean!
