Amazing location, couldn't get any better! We were 2 people and had a private room off to the side even though we booked the dorm. Terrace balcony was great, easy to meet other people in the evening time. Definitely recommend!

There are no lockers, and no wifi in the apartment. You would have to go down to the bar downstairs, which is quite annoying to use the wifi. Technically it's a great location because the town is tiny and right on the Marina.

Riomaggiore is a lovely little town! The hostel is hard to find (you have to go inside a bar to check in, which I didn't know) and the owner walks you to the apartment where the hostel is located. It's small, but clean, with a kitchen you can cook in and a balcony to hang out on. I met some very nice people here and had fun hanging out in the hostel. Bathroom and shower are roomy and very clean. I think this is one of those places that's great if you are staying with good people.

Great location, not too many steps. Clean hostel and it didn't really feel like a 10 bed dorm because the beds were split into rooms. No air conditioning which lead to some hot nights but we just left the windows open. Other than that it was a great hostel :)

I thoroughly recommend staying at this hostel. The staff went out of their way to help me and were so hospitable and kind. I cannot thank them enough. The hostel was conveniently situated in the lovely village of Riomaggiore. I only wish I could have stayed longer.

The hostel itself is decent. No air con hurts when the weather is super hot but everything else about the facilities is okay. There wasn't really any staff to explain stuff to you I had to go to a tourist center. If you are travelling solo it will be hit or miss, depends who happens to be in your room. This is an apartment style hostel you don't meet the other travellers in other rooms. I was lucky enough to have cool people 1 night.

cinque terre is amazing. this isn't the nicest place you will ever stay, but it's such a great view and location it doesn't matter. it's apartment style so everyone got really close. this is one of my favorite places I've been and I highly recommend this hostel. only downside is no wifi in the room, you have to go down to the bar. very clean!

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

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.
