The woman that runs it made my stay unnecessarily unpleasant as she was rude, unfriendly and unhelpful. Booked an 8 bed dorm that was actually a 10 bed. Breakfast is awful. For anyone thinking of going take the shuttle and not the stairs of death from the train station to the town.

Great stay at Ostello! Excellent location in quiet Corniglia. Hostel was quiet, clean and the perfect place to stay to enjoy the whole Cinque Terre.

No wifi in rooms on at reception they cut off the wifi at 7. The rooms are scattered all over town so hard to met people. The owner guy rude and dosnt care about your stay only about you paying

Owner Comment (Hide)
The hostel is in the centre of the town, wifi works 24 hours. You wrote already twice about the hostel, probably you have confused our hostel with another one

The guy didn't let me shower after I checked out they also charge 50c an hour to leave your baggage after check out

Before check in they said "after check out, you can keep your luggage in here" They didn't mention money so I think it is free but it is not. And never can do shower... disappointment.... I think they little strict. And except too close the church, here is not bad hostel. Even if too narrow double bed and too small shower room but everything is clean and rocker is big. Also 5 terre is so beautiful.

I thoroughly enjoyed my short stay in Corniglia. The staff were so friendly, felt so comfortable and welcome. The place was really really clean. In the quieter of the 5 towns but very easy to access from the train station and away from all the tourists! Highly recommend.

The hostel is pretty good. It's one of the best I have stayed, but the people who attend have a lack of touch. And the hostal stay closed like for 4 hours in the day and you have to go out, you can't stay there so if you want to stay and relax you can't. On the bright side it is clean and have a good location in Corniglia.

The hostel was pretty good in the small town of Cornilgia. Only issue that was a big concern was the church bells. But there is no avoiding the bells in any part of the village.

Great place to stay and save money. I stayed in the female dorm, which is adjacent to the shared restroom. Comfy, new mattress. Yes, the lockers can be a bit noisy, but there is good Wi-Fi, even in the rooms. The breakfast is good value for money. Only down-side: lack of a common kitchen for guest-use & large common facilities to hang out with other travelers. Friendly/helpful staff. Just consider it's a long walk up from the train station, if you arrive at a time when there is no bus service.

Really enjoyed our stay here. Lovely staff and the location was brilliant as being in the middle village as it was easy to walk between the five villages. Cornilgia was good to come back to on the evenings as much quiter and less touristy. Shame there was no kitchen but great secure, huge lockers. Cinque terre was a brilliant place for walking but make sure you have trainers.

Everything was fantastically clean and brand-new! The bathroom was like a hotel bathroom. But the showers a bit small, though it was okay for me.

The owner was very rude and not accomodating, the other staff were ok. If you want friendly atmosphere where you don't feel like they are doing you a favour by you paying to sleep at their hostel, don't stay here. The location is quiet and beautiful, however there are many beautiful locations in Cinque Terre.

The morning front desk lady was a but of a cow who liked to start fights. I hated the lockout. Why pay so much if you can't even be there for 6 hours.

The main issue is the check in can't be done before 15:00. The hostel is just closed for cleaning between 11:00 and 15:00.

Very professional clean dormitory style hostel. The staff were very friendly and the people staying there are from all walks of life. So you don't have to go up the 382 stairs into the town of Corniglia, wait at the train station for the town shuttle that will take you to the top for 2 euro. You can get a discounted shuttle ticket from the market next to the hostel for the rest of your stay once you're there.

Excellent, air conditioning perfect and the best I have ever seen in a hostel in Europe. Check in not until 3pm so quite late.
