Great location in the beautiful town of Levanto. It's a bummer to not be in the exact Cinque Terre but it's so easy to get there &Levanto is a beautiful place to be in anyways. The hostel was clean, with great facilities. Breakfast was the worst I've seen, but at least it's free I guess. However, there was a field trip full of kids there when we stayed. They were loud, and took up the entire breakfast space &ruined the atmosphere for the other guests. Still would stay again if going to Levanto.

Loved our stay there. Super spacious 6 bed dorm and massive bathroom! Very clean. The Dutch lady at reception was really helpful in helping us work out our walking tracks. Really understanding staff with our undecided length of stay (due to train strikes). Perfect place to retreat to after full days of exploring the Cinque Terre villages. Loved the safe family feel of Levanto. Just a pity there's no kitchen facilities :)

Pretty good hostel, close to the beach, nothing bad to say!

This hostel is in a great location for hiking the cinque terre, and grocery stores, restaurants, beach, etc. are all nearby. However, the kitchen facilities are lacking; there is a microwave, but nearly no dishes to microwave with, and no sink to clean up. The internet is slow and only available in certain areas of the hostel. The common room has a light timer, so you need to keep clicking the button every minute. Breakfast is limited and reception has weird hours, so look that up before.

This place is in a great location, just up into the hills so views are amazing. It's very close to the beach and shops as well, and a 15 min walk to/from the train station. Decent free breakfast too! Great spot to hire bikes from and cycle to fremura along the converted train line! It's now just for pedestrians and cyclists and goes right along the coast through tunnels along the way - highly recommended!

the frogs scream at night but with earplugs they didn't bother me at all. The breakfast was a bit meager but the staff and facilities were great. Would definitely recommend

This hostel was just what we needed. It was a fifteen minute walk from the train station, but it was right in the middle of Levanto (definitely the town to stay in if you're visiting Cinque Terre). They had good wifi and nice staff. We had no complaints (except that breakfast was measly).

Great place to stay when going to Cinque Terre. The place was clean, the staff was friendly, and the breakfast was a great way to start our hikes in the morning! Definitely worth the money! The location was great as well!

Thumbs down for the kitchen, which more or less just consisted of a microwave. A boiling plate would be nice... Apart from that I really liked the place! Close to some of the hiking trails and the beach and fairly close to the train station. Recommend!

Not in Cinque Terre, but very close to it! Only takes a few minutes by train. Coming from the train station, there aren't a lot of signs pointing you in the right direction of the hostel. So I advise to print the picture with the directions (once you have those, it's very easy!) Reception in the morning, afternoon & evening. In between you can enter the building with the key you get at check-in. The personnel was very friendly and the rooms were clean! Breakfast isn't much, but it was free!

Stayed 5 nights here and it was really nice. Restaurant right across the road and very close to anything else you might need. Was clean, they provided towels for us but unfortunately there was no cooling in the room. Leaving the windows open at night would've been fine except for the wildlife in the nearby creek and the bell tower chiming ever quarter hour! Despite this would come back again but would love to see fans in the room.

A great place to come back to after a day of hiking or lounging at the beach. Main thing lacking is a kitchen, but there's a microwave! Staff is funny and nice, showers were warm, beds comfortable.

Great hostel. Short walk to the beach or city center, bathrooms were clean and spaciou. There are cupboards to store luggage/packs in the room but no way of locking them, which would have been nice. The common area is a bit odd--at no point did I ever see people hang out there. Breakfast was typical--bread and spread, juice, coffee. Staff was really, really great and answered any and all questions we had re: Cinque Terre, where to eat and/or drink. . I'd definitely stay here again.

Stayed here one night. Woken up by a school group making a raucous in the hallway where the breakfast is. Huge washrooms which is nice. Decent beds. Pretty helpful staff.

This is the place to go if you are traveling around in Cinque Terre. Levanto is one of the larger towns that I visited during my stay here. It is small enough you can walk to the hostel easily from the train station and anywhere else really. The rooms are large and with normal bunkbed setups. I loved the huge lockers we got. MAKE SURE TO BRING YOUR OWN LOCK! Free breakfasts were standard (crappy) Italian breakfast but included. I lucked out with meeting ppl here, but not so social overall.

I would highly recommend this hostel to anyone going to Cinque Terre. Although it isn't in one of the 5 villages, I loved the location in Levanto. The town itself feels safe and un-touristy and its a great get away. The hostel staff is wonderful and they even have FREE BREAKFAST! Not anything special at all, but hey, its free. Huge rooms and bathrooms and very clean. Wifi wasn't all over the hostel but that wasn't a huge deal as iit was available in the lounge on the first floor.
