    We had a beautiful time in PortoVenere. So much that we want to go back!!! The hostel was clean, check in and check out was so easy, people were nice, and faciliy itself was clean. Plus, the wifi was excellent!!! IMO the directions the hostel posted are somewhat confusing. We ended up taking a taxi from La Spezia to the hostel (25mins 40 euros fixed rate) which is easier as the bus is about an 8-10 min walk. Overlooking the transportation issue, the hostel was amazing and so was Porto so 10/10!

    I traveled Europe solo for a month and this was by FAR my favorite hostel out of the many I stayed in. The location was INCREDIBLE!! You share a space with a four star hotel, at a fraction of the price. Views were unbelievable, staff was kind, rooms were clean - you can't ask for much more. It was a bit tricky to get to the five towns - you can either take a 40 min bus ride and then access the train network via La Spezia, or you can get a more expensive ferry pass for the day.

    This is the place to book for cheap in Porto Venere! It’s well located and close to everything you need. The facilities don’t have anything out of the ordinary but they are clean and the staff is very nice. The breakfast is very mediocre but the coffee machine was a godsend!

    Perfect location! You’ll have a great view of the marina and beautiful waterfront from the common room - great view for an awesome price. The staff are very warm and welcoming and super helpful with advice for things to see and getting there :) Travelling in the off-season meant I had a room and bathroom to myself which was fantastic for the price I paid. Highly recommend this hostel for those looking for something cheap.

    Really nice place close to Portovenere center with a beautiful view over the city. A little hard to find at first, but it's a lovely and quiet location. Breakfast included with the accommodations at the time of this stay were some packaged brioches/crackers with instant coffee, milk, and boxed fruit juices available.

    Absolutely loved the location of the place. We had no idea how beautiful Portovenere is. There were multiple, cute and chic restaurants near by and the hostel is well connected to the city center by bus. The staff was sweet and polite, and the breakfast spread was fantastic too!

    The hostel is nice and staff are helpful. It's really hard to find and up multiple flights of steps, so more signs or an email beforehand with instructions how to find the hostel would have been helpful. I was here in January, and was disappointed with security. You check yourself in and out because reception is not 24/7, and one night I stayed there completely by myself. You can only lock your hostel room door, everything else is unlocked so I didn't feel very safe as a solo traveler.
