The host was welcoming, and sweet. Gave us time to settle in, then settle up. Was also part of the "crowd" while we were enjoying apperitivo on the terrace (which was a huge feature for us). The room was clean, spacious, good water temp (not so great pressure). Wifi is spotty, but that's Italy not Barb's fault. When it worked, it worked great. Her maid was helpful when we were leaving and even checked with me to make sure she could clean out the fridge. would come back
Viadeibanchi is in the heart of everything in Riomaggiore. The bedrooms are perfect for what we wanted, the owners were very kind and helpful and they have wifi now. You need to climb a lot of steps to the rooms and there is no lift - but we are talking about Cinqueterre. The bathroom was clean and looked clean, the bed was confortable, the AC was almost as quiet as a dead body. We loved every minute there.

Very nice place - the location was ideal and the room was very clean and comfortable. The wifi only worked in the hallway and there was no place to sit out there and the bar was very loud at night but it didn't last all night - those are the only two criticisms.
A very nice hostel on the main street of Riomaggiore above the Central Bar! We had a pretty room with all the necessary facilities, a comfortable bed, even a kettle and tea&coffee. Barbara, the host, was a very welcoming and pleasant person to chat with, as her English is really good. We found her suggestions very useful, the same to tell about the brochures, books about the Cinque Terre and other stuff provided at the office. In case of the street party good to have earplugs with you :)
