    Exceptional staff. A sweet family runs the business and they’re so kind. It’s very affordable. It’s typical of any hostel where you’re living with many people in tight quarters and you may get a strange old fellow who talks in his sleep and has no concept of other people sleeping, as a roommate, but as far as hostels go this one is great! They were helpful and kind and accommodating in every way. Location is good, room was relatively quiet. I recommend it

    Up 3 flights of stairs to the room and our host Giovanni helped carry luggage up to the room. Adequate room, reasonable bed and enough blankets in case of cold. Bathroom shared between 3 bedrooms with a separate basin enabling better sharing. Plenty of hot water. A small fridge in the room and corkscrew provided but no other kitchen facilities. Lively, fun village and most beautiful natural environment. This was a great base from which to explore the region of Cinque Terra, stunning.

    Went with a group of 10 people all booking at this hostel. Loved the location of the room 1 other girl and I stayed in, but across the city from the others in our group. Great atmosphere and easy to get around. Beds were comfortable and room was very clean. There weren't any lockers in the room but it didn't seem unsafe to leave anything out.

    Cozy cute little room. Nice shower and super easy check in and out process. Not really a hostel but perfect for our trip.

    The location was very walkable however, our room was far (and up many flights of stairs) from the check-in building was. We were under the impression that this would be a hostel, but there weren't any amenities such as a lounge or kitchen. We booked a private 3 bed space which had a queen and a twin only a few feet apart - there wasn't enough floor space even for one suitcase. The bathroom was nice and the place was very clean. The wifi was basically non-existent and there was no cell service.

    I've booked better private rooms for less cash. There was no AC, the WiFi was spotty, and there was a fridge in the room that didn't work. I couldn't even keep myself cool in the room, let alone any beverages. Would not recommend and would not stay again. Staff was polite but short and to the point. Pure business. No joy.

    Horribly and rude customer service. I had booked and payed a double room for myself with a view(travelling alone). The owners tried to put me first in a shared room and then in a tiny room with a bunk bed, no view in a hostel like dorm. I went back and said I had actually booked a double bed in a nice room(and payed it already). The owners started to literally yell at me (I know what f**kullo means in italian). After a long fight I finally got to my actual room.

    We stayed in a 4 bed dorm with an en-suite. The dorm isn’t actually a dorm, the hostel is really just a bunch of rooms sprawled across Riomaggiore. There was no kitchen, common room, proper reception etc. when we arrived, the room hadn’t been cleaned. The host continually brought guests through our room to a private one, did not knock, no regard for privacy, made the guests feel very unsafe. The pictured advertised rooms with windows and terraces, although the two rooms we stayed in had none.
