The staff was at first not very helpful but then when I had a problem and had to leave early they were extremely accomodating and very nice! The hostel had an amazing location and a terrific social atmosphere with a communal balcony that led to a great time. If you are looking to meet people, stay here!

great location in a cute small town perfect for hiking the cinque terre. wifi and check in is only at the bar downstairs, homemade pastry and coffee free for breakfast! Small kitchen but also good local pizza and pasta close by. Little terrace great for arvo drinks and chilling with the other roomies


Great location in one of the 5 towns. Great kitchen area and balcony to eat and have drinks on. Well priced compared to other accommodation options on the cinque terre. Grumpy owner but overall a fantastic place to stay


No locks on bedroom door. We shared the 10 bed mixed door and came home to our door wide open multiple times because other people hadn't locked it. No lock in the bathroom during showers. Staff wasn't very friendly. No lockers or dressers or anything to put your bags, so we had them on the dirty floor. Great location and good for students- it's worth the money, but we didn't want to spend much time in our room.


Really enjoyed our four night stay. The hostel was in a great location and the staff were so helpful and friendly. The two bed room was great and the hostel was always generally tidy. Really appreciated the towel supply too. Lockers would of been a good addition!

Loved our stay in cinque terre! Awesome balcony to sit and have sangria, the owner was very nice and there's a great breakfast with good coffee at the bar in the morning. Wifi is not in the room but found our company more enjoyable anyways! Would return!


Loved the place. Walk to almost anywhere on the same side of the river, quick walk to train station for metro

There is no wifi in the rooms (only in the cafe/bar downstairs), which was really annoying, but maybe it was for the best because CInque Terre is the kind of place where you should just disconnect completely, wander aimlessly and soak in the beauty of your surroundings!


It's a great location and a decent place. The linens were clean for me and I never had a problem with the showers or anything. There is a guy who lives there full time in the summer named Oliver who is a great guy and really fun to be around, so he definitely helps make the place worth it. Overall a good value for my money. If you need wifi, this place isn't for you, though.


Not really a hostel, it is an apartment above a bar. No staff, the people that clean up are people that live there I assume for accomodation. Didnt meet anyone else while I was there but the rooms are just a bunch of beds in the living room. It is fairly expensive, but average for Cinque terre. The bar is a fun place to go at night, but I think this place is just supplemental income for the bar. Owner seems pretty nice though.
