Great value room in Corniglia. We had the private room which was spacious and had our own bathroom. Close to the main square and easy walking distance from resturants, bars etc.. One issue was that our door wasnt locking properly so our private room was not secure at all. It was a little disapoointing that they didn't offer us a... More

We stayed here 2 nights on our visit to Cinque Terre. We had booked a private room and were pleased to find we had our own bathroom. The room was clean and tidy, furnished with a bed, 2 lockers and table and chairs. There were powerpoints and air con at night. Sheets and bath towels were provided. You could get... More

We booked 2 private rooms with ensuites, bright airy rooms, spotlessly clean. Great water pressure in shower. Reasonable drink prices from reception fridge. Small clean communal kitchen. Great central location. Would highly recommend.

We got this hostle just for one night. It was clean, comfortable and friendly. The breakfast was also quite fine. It's just 5 minute far from the beach and is placed in the center of the Corniglia village.

I loved my stay at this hostel. I chose to stay in a private room that included an ensuite bathroom. The room was clean, well-cared for, and offered a wonderful view over the town. The hostel has well-stated rules that make it quiet and perfect for a restful visit. The price was very reasonable. I will definitely stay here again.

The Ostello hostel is perfect for travelers on a budget who want to indulge in Cinque Terre. Corniglia is the quieter town of the 5, but the hostel offers the simple needs for your stay. Security is great, offering personal lockers with keys. The 5 cities have so much to offer, so a cheap bed is all you need. The... More

Not a great first impression - my bed didn't have a light or a power outlet, and when I asked the man on reception if I could change beds (as there were 2 free beds) he said "no, ohwell". He couldn't care less, he was more concerned with chatting with his friend on his mobile. On top of this I... More

Corniglia is less busy than the other towns of Cinque Terra which we found nice. It was accessible by trains, maybe 3/4 every hour. And a good middle point to hike either side. This hostel had all you need with washing availible. You do need to leave the hostel during the middle of the day for cleaning. But you will... More

This is a bare-bones hostel with institutional-like décor (lockers, metal beds, and a semi-functioning A/C unit). We stayed in a private double room, which was rather cramped, but clean. The hostel is well-located in the heart of the small town. Several staff members were not particularly friendly but Elizabeth went out of her way to help us plan our trek... More

Firstly, I would like to say that on their info sheets in the rooms it states that the air con will be turned on from 5pm-7am. However, the staff sneakily turns the air con off in the middle of the night obviously thinking no one will notice. Everyone noticed. It gets very, very hot in those rooms without the a/c.... More
