Nice Hostel, well located near the church of Corniglia. The staff are very helpful, the hostel is very clean and simple but very comfortable. Good place for rest.

A great hostel in the quiet village of Corniglia. Clean comfortable dorms with great large lockers. Staff extremely helpful and friendly. Hostel has a bright and cheerful appearance. Very clean as well!


No one really goes to Cinque Terre to spend a lot of time in the hostel. The lockout was a non-issue really, because you go hiking all day anyway. Great shower.


A great place to stay in Cinque Terre, you're well situated in the middle town and can easily hike either north or south, depending on preference. The lock out really isn't a big deal, it's only 4.5 hours and encourages you to get out and explore! There's plenty to see that doesn't involve the inside of your hostel. No kitchen facilities, which is unfortunate, but there are reasonable restaurants in town. Staff is friendly and accommodating!


Last minute booked, the staff worker was very friendly told me places to go to. Big rooms huge locker to store all your stuff. Not far from the hiking trail but a hike from the train station, take the bus don't hike. A bit pricey but it's the cinque terre it's expected.


No kitchen facilities, but a breakfast is provided for extra. Good central location because it is in the middle village out of the collection of five.


Corniglia is one of the most beautiful of the five cities. However something to take into consideration is that the ferry cannot service Corniglia. So when the trains go on strike (which they always do) you either have to hike back or stay wherever you are. The hostel was great. Staff were wonderful. When I was stuck in Monterosso for the night the staff were very concerned for me.


Extremely clean, convenient and great for meeting other travelers.


The only weird thing was that you had to leave the key to your locker with all your valuables in it with the staff in the middle of the day so they 'knew who came in and out'. I didn't really feel comfortable with that!


Good base to explore cinque terre. Staff member on arrival wasn't very approachable, other members of staff were however. Place is kept very tidy, big lockers in room are good for storing belongings. Kitchen facilities, however like most of Italy it's for staff only and guests can only use kettle, microwave, cutlery, plates and bowls etc.


The location of this hostel is convenient, however the staff are very disinterested and not very friendly. The only staff member who was not short with me was Alessandro, when I made my payment. The staff make you leave your locker key with them, and the rooms and are very simple. The girls bathrooms have no privacy, as you walk out of the shower into the main bit of the bathrooms. Not the friendliest or nicest place I've stayed.


A very nice little town to stay in and the hostel is close to the start of lots of walks. Everything was kept really clean and the lockers were nice and big. No kitchen really, but there is a microwave, although strangely enough you can only defrost stuff and not cook with it! But there's lots of nice local restaurants to eat at anyway. Would definitely come again.


Good hostel, Strange rules regarding check in time and lock out period. The showers were interesting, not very private at all. The male staff were very helpful and polite but the female that we delt with came across very rude. The staff kitchen is right where the tables are for your use but you aren't allowed to use majority of the kitchen (kettle, utensils, plates).
