    Great camping. In the heart of nature. Apporx 7 mins by bus from the trainstation/beach. We travelled with my friend. We took a Twin Private Ensuite and it was like getting back to childhood. It was older, wooden, small. We were happy like kids there, it had that smell of camping old wood. Equipped kitchen, fridge, drinkable water included. Toilet, showers within minute walking. Space for loundry, washing machines, dryers,.. hair-dryer in the toilet space available. just great, thanks!!

    First of all, this is a campsite. There is no electricity in your room. They will happily charge anything you need. I went here to visit Cinque Terre. I loved the atmosphere so much that I only went to Cinque Terre for one day and spent the rest here. When I got to CT, I realized the crowds were not worth the effort. Here you can have the same sea, the same lovely time with no crowds. Also, the restaurant on the corner is amazing! I would suggest taking a boat cruise to see the cities.

    Best stay I've had so far off of Hostelworld. Staff was amazingly friendly. I even booked the wrong days and they found me an upgraded room for the same price. It is a campground but they have small cabins with private bathrooms and other tent like cabins with communal bathrooms but both are a great price, air conditioned, and you fall asleep to birds chirping.

    Nice camping spot with no gear necessary. Facilities were clean and staff was very helpful! FYI: the free shuttle is a bus that will pick you up at the train station roughly every 30 or 60 minutes. At night there is a shuttle van with last service at 23:05.

    Very nice campsite! I thought it was going to be some kind of tent, but it was actually a cabin with lights, a stove, running water etc. The shuttles are from 8 am to 10 pm, so they’re very convient and timed with the trains. Very friendly and helpful staff as well! Would recommend.

    My boyfriend and I came here as a cheap option to visit cinque terre. It’s about 20 mins away from the nearest city of cinque terre. We chose the tent option which was just a tent house and with two surprisingly comfy beds provided for us. The only downside was bugs were able to sneak their way it. The staff was super friendly and there were the cutest and friendliest cats roaming around. The train station is about 5 mins away and they provide free transportation back and forth every hour.

    Really enjoyed the relaxed vibe of Camping La Sfinge. It was a decent location for getting to and from Cinque Terre and the tents were more than sufficient. The only thing it lacked was a light.

    Super humid tents. The tents have huge holes in it so get prepared to sleep with mosquito families and stink bugs. The tents trap in all the moisture so your clothes and belongings get wet. Bruh. Just show us on a map where the campsite is. The attendant is gone for every person that comes in because she walks the huge campground to show the location to the person. Besides that it's dirt cheap, so if you like that, then do it.
