Great place to stay, very quiet. The town shuts down at ten though so get what you need beforehand.

Internet reception was very poor, we had to go outside to get acceptable reception The owner was living in another village. She was not easily reachable or forthcoming The room was rather small. There was no veranda only a small window overlooking the lane There were no kitchen or eating facilities, we had to ask for some plates and cutlery


Absolutely beautiful room in a gorgeous town. The balcony was great for drying out laundry and looking at the stars. Clean, welcoming, and a great calf workout :)


Stefano was an amazing host and was very helpful throughout the duration of our stay. The location is GREAT! Very easy to get to the restaurants, shuttle bus & walking track. The room and bathroom were clean & tidy, however wi-fi was poor in the room so the only real place was the entrance way or front door step. Very much enjoyed our stay.


Great value for money for the area you are staying! Right in the heart of the city! Very clean and the locals so friendly. Not a hostel though, more an B&B- perfect for couple or friends travelling together who want to immerse self in culture


Clean room! But the wifi is spotty


Such a cute place! The room was super cozy, and we even had a small balcony. Big plus for the small fridge. Only improvement would be to extend the wifi to the whole area, instead of having people hanging out their windows to try to catch signal :P would stay here again!


Great location in quiet Corniglia, host Stefano was very helpful in giving us recommendations and information, not much a place to meet other travelers, but I think the Cinque Terre area is generally sparse in those types of hostels. Rooms at Il Girasole were very clean and everything worked well. Price was a little higher than we'd hoped for, but the same goes for almost everywhere in Cinque Terre. Right nearby to Alberto's Gelateria, yum!


Beautifully renovated. Lovely bath, bedroom and little balcony.


Very nice play to stay in a beautiful location. The owner was really really nice, well spoken and told us everything we needed to know. Everything was as described, the only problem we really had was shotty wifi, but if you walk down the street like 1 min theres and internet bar that has really good connection and some good coffee as well. We loved it and would recommend it to anyone wishing to stay in cinque terre.


If you Are planning to stay a night or more Corniglia os "the place"in Cinque Terre. Hostel is very good. Highly recomend it
