The breakfast is lovely, but no wifi in the rooms. Would recommend for sure!

Once you meet everyone in your room, it is basically just a big flat with 2 bathrooms, massive kitchen, balcony to all sit around and have a drink and there are 3 different rooms to sleep in, so hardily a 10 share dorm. Best location and view. Just has a sick vibe and I would 100% stay here again! owner is a good bloke also.


mar-mar was overall a good hostel! the location was excellent, less than 5 minute walk to the train station and there was a terrace with amazing views of the village. its set up like an apartment, there is a room with 2 beds, a room with 3 and a big room with 5. two bathrooms, and a full kitchen. there isnt any wifi in the hostel, only in the bar so just remember that, but you can go down to the cafe and use it whenever. id recommend mar mar for anyone wanting to stay in riomaggiore


Clean hostel but no secure storage and located in one of the quieter villages. However was very beautiful.

Very good location in Riomaggiore, not far from the train station. Check in process a bit odd but definitely works. Breakfast included is a coffee and croissant which isn't too bad. Hostel is clean and spacious with plenty of light. No lockers provided so definitely recommend bringing your own lock to lock your things in your travel bag. Also has kitchen. Accommodation is sufficient and clean and tidy. Would stay here again :-)

I had little expectations when arriving based on the previous reviews. Very impressed! The staff were fairing unfriendly, which was fine as the room was among other apartments and not near the bar (reception). The room was huge, with kitchen facilities. Nice social layout of the beds and has a nice balcony area. Perfect location. Really close to water, Main Street and the train station. Would definitely stay again.


Really hard to find, but awesome location once you actually do find it.


It's just a bunch of beds in a an apartment but surprisingly nice and clean


Very clean and well kept, great location, right above a bar/restaurant owns by the hostel owners which had a good vibe. Only downside that wifi is only in the bar, but it's a fun place to hang out. Breakfast is a pastry and a cappuccino, so small, but nice. Kitchen had everything we needed and our stay was great!


We ended up having the ten bed dorm to ourselves for two nights. It was pretty nice. There was a balcony over looking Riogamorre. The only issue was that there was lint all in the beds. So they were a little dirty. Also the apartment was very cold the whole time.


Super friendly staff that also owns the bar downstairs! Great location in Riomaggiore.

We were given a key and left to our own resources. There was no tourist information provided. Beds were not very comfortable and the springs were easily felt. Wi-Fi was available only in the bar connected with the hostel. Breakfast was a croissant plus hot drink, not really adequate.
