We had a really enjoyable stay in cinque terra and this hostel in Corniglia is a good base, however a few things about the place were a bit irritating- the door handle fell apart whenever you tried to use it and the light above the bed constantly flickered when turned off. If the room was a bit cheaper is happily sit on these complaints though. Keep in mind this is just a room and not a hostel, perfect for a couple, not so for a single traveller.

Our stay at Il Girasole was lovely! Corniglia is a great little town in the centre of the cinque terre and although not the most lively place, we fell in love with the local vibe and all the quaint little restaurants and cafés. The room was basic and pretty small but suited us fine! It was right in the heart of town and great value for money considering some of the crazy pricing you find in the cinque terre region! Highly recommend :) the only issue we had was the wifi could be a bit dodgy.

The room and location is fantastic. We stayed 6 nights, definitelly worth it. We had a massive king size bed, in a large double room. The staff is just the owner and his wife. Very nice people, they dont live in corniglia, so we didnt meet often. Our room was actually in a family apartman, but suitable for group of friend too, which includes two bedrooms nice new shower and kitchen, normal size table and fridge in it. Over all, its worth it. Go there and see it yourself :)

Absolutely loved this place! First of all, the guy who ran it was great. We arrived early so the room was still being cleaned so the guy took our (heavy) bags for us then carried them up the stairs once it was done whilst we were out. The room is like a ski lodge, very nicely furnished and a nice little balcony. Fan and fridge provided too. Location in the heart of cinque terre in the best town of the 5! Very short walk from where the shuttle bus drops you from the station

Thank you very much for your welcome! Stefano's house is well located and he is especially welcoming (and has good advices on restaurants to go!). Parking in the city is a bit difficult so consider using the train instead!

Our stay at Il Girasole was lovely. It is nestled in the beautiful town of Corniglia, and the room is bright, clean and spacious. Wifi was a bit patchy and kitchen only had a fridge - no cooking facilities. Beware that there are a lot of stairs and the nearby supermarkets are very small and only carry bare essentials but this is the charm of staying in such a small town. Alberto gelateria and la posada restaurant nearby are musts!!

We really enjoyed our stay - only one thing - a small bar fridge in the room would have been good. We thought we had booked a room in a hostel (as we booked through Hostelworld) so assumed there would be communal cooking facilities. Not clear when we booked that this wasn't actually the case.
