Looking for the perfect place to take a step back from all the crowds, rushing around viewing churches, museums and monuments?

Mar-Mar offers dormitory-style accommodations in the Cinque Terre with a difference, offering you a slower pace of life that has changed little over hundreds of years. Local residents still maintain some of their traditional livelihoods of fishing and wine making, living on the steep rugged hillsides along the Cinque Terre coastline.

Riomaggiore is the southernmost village of the 'five lands', making it an ideal place to begin your exploration of the Cinque Terre National Park and the famous hiking trails. This is the ultimate location to relax with the locals, take some time out and experience the authentic rural Italian lifestyle.

Mar-Mar has traditional accommodations, full of character and home comforts, right alongside those of the locals so you feel part of the community right from the beginning.

Explore the remainder of the villages at your own pace either on foot or by train. Take some locally made wine down to the rocks and watch the sunset over the med, or enjoy a meal made with fresh local ingredients at one of the many little osterias. If you are a hiker, outdoors enthusiast or just want to switch off and chill out by the sea, Mar-Mar in Riomaggiore has the laid back atmosphere you just might be craving.

Free WiFi is available at the hostel and at the Bar O'Netto which is just a few minutes walk from the dorm.

*****Please bear in mind that if a property cannot pre authorise your card for any reason, they will email you to ask you for further details. Should they not receive a response from you within 48 Hours they would be then entitled to cancel your reservation due to insufficient card details. ****** View House Rules

    Had a super nice stay! It is a 10 bed dorm so you may not get the best sleep of your life, however the location and atmosphere makes it worth it! Do try to ask for a bed in the little adjacent room if you want better sleep. Location is wonderful and the view from the balcony is unbeatable. Kitchen is functional and there are 2 bathrooms for the whole dorm. Super close to restaurants, the train station and the beach. Would recommend!

    Seriously can’t beat the location. Not the best sleeps of my life, but does it matter? Easy enough to find right in center of Riomaggiore- no reception, check in happens at the bar. Bring cash to pay!! Solid kitchen, small terrace with basically an ocean view. Great wifi and you get linen + towels. I had the absolute best time in CT and this hostel was a great starting point. Very recommended!

    The place is pretty chillt. It's basically a 2 bedroom apartment where the main room is filled with bunk beds and one of the bedrooms serves as a small living room. It's really centrally located and easy to get around. There's a nice little terrace and a fairly spacious kitchen. In terms of facilities, it's basically an airbnb. There's no desk/reception or anything. I went in mid-october, so the town and the hostel were both fairly empty, but the weather was great! Overall pretty happy

    Pretty great hostel - can't do much better in a small town like Riomaggiore, or Cinque Terre. Was only 2 rooms plus a kitchen and lounge. Definitely recommend. just not for long stays

    A very non traditional hostel. There's no front desk or staff other than the guy who gives you a key when you arrive. It's like an apartment for you and a dozen new friends. I felt at home and enjoyed my stay very much.

    It's a good location, right in the historical town. The beds and lockers are very noisy but besides this it's ok. It has a nice terrace and a kitchen and it's clean. I can recommend this place if you are looking for a low priced accommodation with the opportunity to meet other travellers.
