This hostel was excellent but lacking only one thing: a common room where people can meet and hangout.

Make sure you plan your trip to arrive after 3pm or before 1pm otherwise you will be locked out and there are no lockers to store luggage before you check in. Corniglia is by far the best town in Cinque Terre in my opinion as it is quieter and has amazing views. The hostel is not good if you want to party but has all the necessities and a really nice view from the room.

Pretty average hostel. The staff were friendly enough. However, the wifi was spotty, breakfast wasn't cheap (and you had to book it in advance), the ladders on the bunk beds constantly shook or fell off the beds, the shower doors in the girls bathroom were see-through, the cleaners wake you up at 10:30 (not a problem for me but a warning if you like sleeping in) and there was a church bell constantly going off through the night, so bring earplugs. Other than that it was fine.

The location is amazing! The staff was cool to talk to, but not to helpful in recommending stuff. The hostel was very clean, but they do kick you out for a few hours (I was already gone every time). I understand it's sketchy to leave the keys for your room/locker they provide, but I brought my own lock they let me use it with their locker. Overall, this place was great! Fair warning, the church bells go off every hour at least, and play the national anthem at 7am. Also, only 2 plugs in the room

Location can't be beat. Clean rooms with huge lockers and free towels. Bathroom cleaned every day. Would definitely stay here again. Quiet atmosphere but to be accepted as everyone spends the whole day hiking.

The price of the hostel is a little bit high but it is the only hostel in this beautiful village, so it is understandable.

ALOT of stairs walking up to Corniglia. Prepare yourself.. Hostel is alright. Bare bones but you won't be inside much with all the exploring

My friends and I had an amazing stay at Ostello Corniglia! Corniglia was the perfect place for us to stay, right in the middle of Cinque Terre and surprisingly quiet for how touristy Cinque Terre can get. The staff at Ostello Corniglia were amazing, very helpful and friendly! The location was great, easy to find and very close to all the shops and restaurants. Corniglia is a bit of a walk from the train station (as it is on a cliff), but the walk is gorgeous and so worth it.

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....

This hostel is a really good place for exploring Cinque Terre. It is the middle town and as such you can train north or south and do small hikes (3-5 hours) back to the hostel. It is clean and has good security. The lockout is a non-issue as you will be out exploring the amazing coast and trails rather than sitting in a hostel. Good spot to relax after a long day of hiking.

The hostel rooms and bathrooms were always kept extremely clean, which I LOVE. It was nice and quiet area, easy to find. If I'm in Cinque Terre, I will definitely come back!

Really nice hostel. Kinda pricey, but everything in Cinque Terre is pricey and they are the most reasonably priced place within the 5 cities. Corniglia was also a really fun town and the staff at the hostel were very helpful. I would definitely recommend it.

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

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