Beautiful location, with a nice rooftop terrace. Rooms are of a good hotel quality. A step up from a hostel with very nice people running it all

The hostess and her daughter were prompt in welcoming us although we arrived a little too early for check in. The place was well-located; you don't have to walk too far up the steep slope, and just downstairs are many cafés and restaurants. It was also very clean, and had air conditioning. This is a plus point and every other place I went to in Italy did not have that, and it was a pretty hot week.

We stayed in a double room, we wanted a twin but it wasn't available. The owner very kindly put a second bed in for us, single 'put me up'. The room was very nice, clean and good size with air conditioning and shutters to block out the light. BUT the shower was very weak and kept going cold, no reception cover except 3-7pm so couldn't ask anyone for help. Very noisy bar underneath our window going on until past 1am. No wifi, breakfast. But she did let us store our luggage after check out.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Reception cover is 3-7 pm but my guests have my mobile number and my email address. I often check if there were any new mails. I also saw my guests many times but they did not say anything to me about the shower getting cold otherwise I would have checked as it is the first time anyone complains about that....

Located directly above a bar. Noise level is really bad, if you can get by with three to four hours fine, it will suit. No blinds on windows so if garbage truck does not wake you the sun rising surely will.

I have to point out few things: there are double panel windows and air conditioning, the coffee bar closes at 1 am and there are blinds on windows. Did they sleep in my rooms? The customer also complained about taking suitcases up and at the same time refusing any help!

Barbara was very helpful and gave us a lot of information about the walks. It's an easy walk from the train station, so very convenient. I think this town is a good one to stay in because it's not as touristy as some of the others and it's handy to start the main walks for here.

GREAT staff, extremely clean room - spacious for Euro standards and in a perfect location. The street noise did not bother us at all. It is up some steep stairs, but we didn't have a problem, even with our luggage. Not a hostel style setup. Highly recommend.

The only complaint I have is that the bar downstairs is extremely loud at night.

The room was clean and the bed comfortable. The building has a rooftop terrace to watch the world go by. Friendly host who is helpful and gives great advice. Close to the train station. The rooms are above a friendly bar that is not noisy and is decently priced. Could be improved with access to wifi (although it is in the bar dowstairs)

Love the place! The owner there was very nice. She let us checked in one hour early, made sure we have everything we need, and told us we could stay as long as we like the next day since she's closing up the place for winter. She also told us where to go see the nicest view, and what wine to try in the region. Her husband was making some wine at the back of the house and we got a glimps of it. Thank you for your kind hospitality! We hope to come back one day when the weather isn't so rainy.

The room is 5 min walking from the train station and 2 min from the sea. We had access to a roof top terrace with a really good view of the sea and of the cliffs. The room is above a bar, which makes it really convenient for breakfast and drinks. There are people talking outside, but it gets silent quite early: the only thing that prevented us from sleeping were the church bells in the morning. The room was very clean and the host was very friendly and helpful. We would definitely go back.

This hostel is about five to eight mins walk from the train station. Its location is very good, close to many restaurants and right by the main road in town. The lady at the reception was super nice!

SUCH a great experience in Riomaggore in the Cinque. It's one of the quieter villages in the Cinque, it was SO nice to have more of an authentic experience vs a tourist one. If you want lots of shops, restaurants, etc I suggest one of the other villages. There are few of bars, restaurants and hiking trails in Riom., but much more quiet. Although there was a bar right under this hostel, we couldn't hear the music or people at all, maybe it was off season. Very clean. Owner Barbara was SO friendly

The location is very convenient, the room is very clean and cosy. However, be prepared to climb very steep and narrow flight of stairs to the rooms and it would be better to have small luggages. It would be nice to have a kettle in the room where we can make a hot drink.

It was exactly what it said on the tin, and was a really nice place to stay. It's right in the centre of the town, but not too noisy and is a beautiful room - the photo's don't quite do it justice which is a shame.

Great host, great location, small but clean, nice terrace, little to no interaction with other guests so more like hotel than hostel in that respect.

This is absolutely the place to stay if you plan to be out late in Riomaggiore. It's in the center of town and directly over a popular bar. It was a little noisy for me, but i don't tend to stay out late. Instead, we shut the window and ran the air conditioner to cover the noise. Great cental location for exploring the town!

Very cosy and comfortable place to stay! On top of a bar tho so can get noisy but nothing that ear plugs can't fix! If u can't climb stairs don't stay here as there are a few steep stairs to get up and down to the rooms!
