Would definitely go back here again! Franco, the owner/manager was EXTREMELY accommodating! He printed out our reservations for us and let us have an extended check-out! Our room was separate from the main hostel address but he checked his email frequently and was easy to contact. The location was perfect because it is a VERY easy walk from the train station, and the rest of Venice is very walkable. I wouldn't want to carry my bags any farther! Make sure to save the directions to the hostel!
Perfect hostel! It overlooked the main street in Riomaggiore and was very easy to get to! The room was cleaned daily with fresh towels and was very nice. Would definitely return here! Riomaggiore was our favorite of the towns and we hiked to each one.
Breakfast was just bread/cereal and jam. Not too exciting. Otherwise the hostel was very nice. It is a room inside of a small common area (shared by 3 rooms) so you have AT LEAST 2 locked doors between Rome and your belongings. The room was pretty big for a hostel (the bed didn't take up the entire floor), and we were able to leave our luggage in the room from the morning we arrived. The hostel gave us a very useful map and directions on how to get anywhere we want on the metro or bus system.
