I would describe this hostel as very clean, which is good. The lockers for each person are huge, but can be noisy early in the morning. The fact that the hostel closes during the day was a little annoying for me as I did the home as far as monterosso al mare. Needless to say I wanted a shower, but... More

Booked a private room ensuite 1,5month ahead of arrival. My choice of town and room was purely based on value for money as I tended to find that a lot, lot, lot of rooms/apartments were overpriced and really old-fashioned across all 5 villages...after much research, I came across this location and oh my...what a pleasant surprise from both corniglia &...

Great location in the middle of Cinque Terre with some ocean views. Good price relative to the other area. Nothing special about the rooms or staff. The walls were kind of thin. The parking is very expensive. We took the shuttle but otherwise there is a long walk up to get to the hostel.

I only stayed here for 2 nights but definitley do not recommend it. First off it is in a horrible location.. Up 300 stairs.. With a suitcase or backpack basically impossible to get to (though their is an extremely packed shuttle bus) Thought the 'lock out' thing was terrible as we had to sit out front of the building in...

Your perspective of the service at Ostello di Corniglia is likely to vary depending on whether it's the first or last place you stay in Italy. If you're already jaded by rude italians and their poor excuse for customer service then you might not be too perturbed by the staff here. Don't expect to use a toilet before check in,... More

Place was clean but that is about it. The staff were unfriendly (very selfish) and you have keys but have to hand them in whenever you leave which makes the lockers pointless. Anyone can grab the keys from the desk. Also they have a lockout time from 1pm to 3pm which means even if you are already in the hostel... More

Pro's: Corniglia is a beautiful small town if you would like a break from the hustle & bustle. The hostel is clean with good size room. Cons: BEWARE OF 1pm-3pm SHUT OUT OF THE ENTIRE HOSTEL. If you are unlucky to be in Cinque Terre on a day of bad weather, you will be shut out of the hostel regardless.... More

Staff are very unfriendly, lock you out of your room during the day and if you don't arrive back before 1:30am you are locked out till 7:30am. Very rude people. We stayed here on a day that was pouring down and we had already had lunch but they demanded we be locked out between 1:00pm-3:00pm and we had no where... More

This place was clean and quiet and had fantastic locker space. But don't expect too much else. Staff isn't friendly and there are too many rules. Lockout half the morning and part of the afternoon, which wasn't a big deal because we were out exploring but I was still irritated at the fact that I was paying for a place... More

This is a great small hostel in Cornigila, probably the quietest town in Cinque Terre. Showers were good and each bed came with a locker/closet. One of the receptionists acted as if you we're bothering him whenever you asked him something, though.
