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!

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).

Helpful staff, spacious lockers, the room itself was clean. A few small bugs in the bathroom and the hostel is hard to find at night for the first time so some clear directions would be helpful before arriving. Other than that it's good value for your money.

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.

The hostel is located up the hill from the train station in the village. This hostel is clean and quiet but lacks atmosphere and the one lady who seems to run the day operation can be confrontational and tends to be a little rude. The other disappointing thing about this hostel is the ridiculous lockout period. Get with the times! With the many different activities in the area it is sometimes necessary to access your belongings during the day.

Basic and clean hostel in Cinque Terre. Good double room. Friendly staff. Enjoyed staying in the smaller and quieter town of Corniglia. I would stay here again if visiting Cinque.

I really enjoyed my stay at this hostel. It's located in the most quiet of the five towns but has a lovely calm atmosphere and great little rocky beach. I stayed in a dorm, each bed had a large locker, light and power outlet. Wifi worked well and the place was kept very clean. Church bells and roosters were noisy but that's just the town, not the hostels fault. Friendly staff that were very helpful about changing my booking. I would stay there again. Only fault, there's no common area

Here's the breakdown: - There is no port for the ferries and you have to hike up from the train station. This is awesome if you like quiet non-touristy,but bad if you hate hiking. - the staff are literally the sweetest people you will ever meet. - the wifi isn't spectacular. - they close for cleaning (not a huge hotel) but I was always out doing stuff. - breakfast is €5 and there are lots of little cafés. - I met amazing people there and loved it. would stay there again 100%

Nice to stay in a freshly painted, up to the minute private room with fresh clean towels and a comfortable bed.

Excellent stay - staff were very knowledgeable and helpful. Space was perfect for the 4 of us. Great location - highly recommend this beautiful village. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Would love to see some common cooking facilities if there was ever the room to accomodate.

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.
