Its in a perfect location, near the train station (a bit noisy). otherwise it was very good staying here. the owner was very helpful in medical emergency because the doctor leaves across the street. there were no partying youngsters so it was relaxing at night, we even had a terrace with a beautiful view.

This hostel is WONDERFUL!! There was an Italian train strike while we were there and they worked with us to make sure we had a room since we couldn't leave. They are unbelievable! And when we go back, we will definitely be staying here!

I love Vernazza, and would go back there, out of all the five towns, again and again. Pensione Sorriso is more affordable than other places, especially when there are no hostel options. But as a single traveller, it's still quite expensive, and though I had the comfort and "luxury" of a private room, what you get is very basic for the cost. A tiny bathroom and no self-contained facilities. But then again, being in Vernazza, it's all about what's OUTSIDE the room!

Very close to train station. Rooms were basic but good enough for a night. We had to switch rooms, which I knew before booking so that was fine. One room had a fan and a terrace, the other had just a window and air conditioning.

Would recommend this to anyone visiting cinque terre. So convenient being right next to the train station, and close to the laundromat as well. The woman was extremely welcoming and kind. Very clean. Best hostel I've stayed at in Italy. The breakfast is a little expensive so just head down to a bar for coffee and pastries instead. Amazing wifi, reached all the way to the train station! Even on a college budget, definitely worth the money.

Good but basic accommodation. It is definitely more hostel than hotel - no TV, no air-conditioning, no tea-making, only one 25ml shampoo. Some might find the proximity to the rail line a problem although I lost no sleep. At euro 110 for 2 per night it's very expensive for what's on offer - we also stayed in Milan in good hotels for less - but I guess it's a small supply/large demand issue.
