Clean room. Lots of street noise on the first night from the local "pub" and the room above but the next night it was quiet. Lots of very steep internal stairs to rooms - no lifts. Room with a little balcony great for cheese and wine each night surveying the street. Needed to check out a day early due to...

We originally planned on staying at this hostel for three nights, but reduced our stay down to two nights when we found that there was not a single restaurant in Riomaggiore open past 6pm. The owner did not speak a word of english and kept screaming at us on the phone when we couldn't find the door to the place...

Can't recommend this place enough. Right in the heart of Riomaggigore and within walking distance to everything. We were treated to a huge bathroom, room and bed! A bonus were the two windows with cute little shutters on them which we opened every night to let in the sounds of Italy. We stayed here for 4 nights and could have...

We stayed here for 4 nights and had the room in the picture. Location was easy to find and very convenient. The room was very basic but quite roomy and very very clean. The bonus was the balcony where we could sit with a drink or coffee just for people watching after dinner. The sound insulation was perfect for noise...

Wow! I had never been to the Cinque Terre and my girlfriend booked this place. I was shocked how perfect it was we had the room the picture which I would suggest to request this. The staff were very friendly and helped lift the bags up the stairs. We used this as our base for the 4 nights we stayed...

My friends and I recently stayed at La Dolce Vita for two nights. Our room was spacious, clean, and updated- we had 3 to a room, and it was fine. The bathroom was recently redone, so it we were very happy (a lot of the other hotels we looked at were outdated and a bit below our cleanliness standards). We...

My wife and I booked this hostel in Riomaggiore after cancelling a booking in Vernazza due to location. The choice was limited and my wife was sceptical about staying in a hostel. However, we were pleasantly surprised by what we found. The office was a 5 minute walk through the tunnel and up the street to the office. The office...

I'm not sure we could have picked a better place to stay in Riomagiorre. The charming room was very conveniently located along the main strip. We actually enjoy the vibrancy of the noise from the street down below, but the doors/windows to the balcony were amazingly soundproof blocking out nearly all the noise when we closed them before retiring. The...

I would definitely recommend staying at La Dolce Vita. Our room looked to have been recently refurbished. Very clean and the beds were super comfy. The room had a fantastic view over the street. Location was perfect - only a short walk to the train station. The price for the accommodation was extremely reasonable.

The location of this "hostel" is amazing. It's located in the first town of Cinque Terre and about a five minute walk from the train connecting to the other towns, five minutes to the beach, and the town connects to many different trails (including the one leading to Portovenere - highly recommended hike off the beaten path). I wouldn't really...
