Great value for money. There is little issue staying in Levanto vs the cinque towns as the train pass (12 euro for the day including access to hiking trails) includes Levanto. Not the greatest place for young travelers if you're trying to meet people as the rooms are spread out/ it was generally an older crowd & school trips. Also try to avoid using the laundry as clothes did not clean or dry properly. Overall a nice place that is a way better value for money than anything else in cinque!
Ospitalia del Mare is the best hostel I've stayed at. It's a bit difficult to find because it's not where all the businesses are, but once you find it you're in for a treat. The staff were incredibly kind and helpful, and the value for what you get each day is unbeatable. The beach is so close it's hard to believe, and if you're looking to wander around the Cinque Terre, there is no better starting point.
Clean, helpful attentive staff, nice atmosphere, located conveniently next to hiking trails, beach and town. Delicious pizza place next door. Negatives would be the wifi, only can get access in particular places, even then is weak, and breakfast is only available at a small window.

The best place about this hostel is the location. Great place to stay when visiting the area to enjoy the Cinque Terre towns and hike the trail. It is tucked away from the stream of tourists so was a quiet place to come back to.
There are a lot of common areas, but it is quite hard to meet people because everyone is so spread out! The terrace is very nice though. No guest kitchen, and nowhere to was your dishes (if you take your own), but there is a fridge and microwave. The wifi doesn't seem to work in the rooms, but it's fine to sit in a common area to use it. Very clean and comfortable room. It is only one train stop from Monterosso, so it is a perfect location.
Stay in Levanto as opposed to one of the towns in Cinque Terre. Much cheaper and the locals are friendly. The towns also has a nice beach whereas many of the Cinque towns don't! This hostel is in a good location, included breakfast, clean and helpful staff. The only thing I would complain about is the WiFi is only accessible in the lobby. But other than that, perfect place for a weekend in Cinque Terre.
