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.

It is pretty confusing on how to get to the place. It doesn't show up correctly on google maps or apple maps. You have to go to the location and ring the host, who then takes you a short walk away to the actual room. No locks for the lockers, but they are very spacious. Leaky faucet in the kitchen, bathroom shower was a little questionable. You definitely get what you paid for. It is an okay place to stay if you want to stay in one of the five towns for a cheap price.

Check in was a bit weird, you have to go to the pub and someone to tick you off and show you the room which is up the hill a bit further, you also have to have cash to pay the remaining balance. The room was 2 rooms joined, plus a separate kitchen space and small lounge and there was a balcony which I found was a very social place when I was there. The bathrooms seemed to be set up for disability access so they were basic but plenty of space. The kitchen was a basic cook top and some pans etc

I will echo all the other reviews. There is no staff at all, some guy at the bar handed me a key and I had to find it myself. It was about as clean as every other hostel - clean but somehow not. The cleaning lady is very intrusive, early, and loud. Having said that, yes. The location is absolutely perfect. The balcony is stunning, the transaction was easy and trustworthy, and the people/community/connections I made were excellent.
