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.

THE CLEANEST HOSTEL I'VE EVER SEEN! Super clean, staff is very friendly, and theres is a lounge area where we spent time watching the world cup with others! While the actual city of Corniglia is not one of the most visited towns, we loved the location because since it was the middle town, it was easy access to the other towns!

I ended up staying at Ostello Corniglia for 4 days. The staff was great! Alessandro especially was very helpful with giving me tips on the best and cheapest places to get food. The only 2 things I didn't like about the ostello were the chairs in the common room weren't very comfortable and the forced closure of the ostello between 10:30 and 3. But honestly, every hostel I've found in Cinque Terre had the same policy. If I hadn't stayed so long I wouldn't have needed to rest. Great experience!!!

[On Location] The hostel is strategically located near the bus stop and the staircase (if you opt to climb the steps from the trains station). [Overall facilities] The hostel was clean, provided for towels and has fast wifi. [On hostel rules] I found it odd that we had to leave our locker keys at the front desk every time we left the hostel.

The hostel is right in the town of Corniglia, and is very clean and organized. However, some of the hostel rules are a little strange and user-unfriendly. For example, the kitchen is explicitly restricted to the breakfast and not available for people to cook in. To leave the luggage after the check-out, you have to pay by the hour!!! Also, there is a curfew between 1 and 7 am.

Overall Ostello Corniglia was a very clean hostel in a great location. Unfortunately, some of the Hostel's policies make it difficult for traveling. We weren't allowed in the hostel until 3pm (not even to use the bathroom after having traveled all night), it was $1/hr for storage, the staff wouldn't make local calls, wifi shuts down at 1am, no one is allowed in the common area at night. Alessandro was very friendly, but the other two workers weren't helpful or friendly unless you spoke Italian

The hostel is in the perfect location for visiting Cinque Terre and is located just steps from excellent food in Corniglia. The staff were accommodating and very friendly, worth chatting to for certain. He rooms were immaculately clean and new feeling. Lockers provided were huge and secure. The wifi was excellent. Just in general an amazing place.

Excellent service - we were upgraded to a private room instead of split up into dorms. Thanks! Hostel was super clean and brand new. Beautiful views.

Overall the hostel was very nice and clean. There are strict rules to oblige by, including hours. We had some difficulty with dropping off and picking up our bags because they were closed. It was a really great experience and we enjoyed having this quieter, cute town as our home base during our visit to Cinque Terre.
