    You must stay here!! This is the best hostel ever! It’s quite far from the Cinque Terre villages but Franco drops everyone off in the morning and picks everyone up in the afternoon. I’m glad I didn’t stay in one of the 5 villages as they’re so busy and crazy with tourists. This place is like a retreat and just what I needed after months of travel. The dinners are soooo good! Just stay here, you won’t regret it! It’s the best place.

    Favorite hostel I’ve EVER stayed in; its rated this high for a reason. The AM and PM shuttles are a must and fully included in the price. The dinners and desserts they make homemade every day, some of the best meals I’ve eaten in Italy. 10€ for bread, entree, dessert, water, and sometimes their wine. Dinner is served at 8:30pm nightly and you eat around one table with all other guests. Huge portions too! Franco and his wife Gracie are amazing people, and the hostel’s views are unprecedented.

    STOP WHATEVER YOU’RE DOING RIGHT NOW AND BOOK THIS HOSTEL!!!! It was by far the best decision of our two weeks in Italy. It’s in the most beautiful quiet setting in the mountains and the staff that run it (Franco and his family) are amazing and make you feel like family. Their homemade wine is soooo good and the nightly homemade pasta dinners were the best we had on our trip. We simply will return to Cinque Terre in the future just to stay at this simply is that amazing!

    This stay was the highlight of my trip in Italy! Franco, Grazia and Alessandro make you feel very welcome and makes the experience feel like more like a home stay. The atmosphere of the hostel is great and the location allowed for getting away from the main cinque Terre area- I definitely didn’t see it as a negative and the shuttles in the morning and evening were great. Relaxing on the terrace of the hostel at the end of the day was so nice and I really enjoyed the group dinners!

    Echoing all of the comments here and more - this is Europe’s best hostel. Between the hostel and beauty of Cinque Terre, you should definitely spend at least 3 nights here to get two full days of Cinque Terre in. This is a small, cozy place — max 14 people I think. Franco and his family could not be more welcoming, and the community that grows out of the amazing dinners each night is such a treat. Absolutely hope to be back

    Lives up to the hype. 20 minutes away from Cinque Terre in the mountains, it offers quiet and rest after long days hiking. Incredible hosts, good food, and clean rooms. The best experience I’ve ever had at a hostel.

    Just got back from 5 days in the cinque terre. The holiday was made by this amazing hostel. Thank you Franco and Grazia for your hospitality. I am going to miss the amazing dinners so much. This hostel is set in a beautiful location, so peaceful and quiet which is needed after a busy day in the cinque terre. I didn’t want to leave! If you are coming to the cinque terre you must stay here!

    Franco, Grazia and Alessandro put so much love and energy into the hostel and it really shows! I had a wonderful time here and was very sad to leave. The shuttle bus to and from Cinque Terre was perfect. It was lovely to spend the evenings in Corvara relaxing, eating amazing homemade food and drinking vino with the other guests. I will be back! Grazie per tutto :~}
