The village of Corniglia is charming and I'm glad I made it my home base. I was disappointed by the overall appearance of the hostel as it was not inviting. It needs color, artwork, music playing (turn off that stupid TV that is on 24 hrs a day), furniture where people can sit and talk, mood lighting that doesn't include florescent lighting that is ugly and bland, and their really needs to be a small kitchenette with stove and refrigerator for guest to cook their food. Continued....


Hostel was clean, staff was nice, location was good. The lockout was kind of a pain during check in and check out; especially not being able to store luggage after check out. But overall good accommodation


Nice hostel, located in the heart of the cinque terre. We recommend it.

A great hostel experience! The location is great, lots of friendly interesting people were there during my stay, very clean and nice facility. Recommended!


A good halfway point if you are hiking the Cinque Terre - nice hostel in the centre of one of the villages.


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.
