We booked a double room. It had a large bed and air conditioning. It also had a private bathroom which was great. Corniglia is a beautiful romantic city, and was actually our favorite of the 5 as it had way fewer tourists and spectacular views. The one problem with Corniglia is the large amount of stairs you have to take... More

The hostel is located in the less touristic, most calm and, maybe, less accessible village of the five in Cinqueterre. If you want noise and crowds, Corniglia is not for you. Cornigilia has got a charm that none of the other 4 villages have and I can't recommend you enough to choose it as your base for exploring Cinqueterre. Hostello... More

The hostel is located very centrally! The people working there are great! Good value for the price. If you want a cheap stay it is a great pick! The town is very cute but on the quieter side. Only bad thing air conditioning didn't work after first day

While this is a nice hostel with comfy accommodations, it is located right next to the church. The church chimes it's bells every hour. And when I say every hour, I mean EVERY hour. This goes on all throughout the night and will wake you up multiple times, even if you're a heavy sleeper like myself. I hate to give... More

Take Corniglia as a town into consideration when booking anything. It a huge hike up. Granted the whole point is to hike, it's not always what you want to deal with as soon as you finish. The room and bathroom were fine. Check in was easy, the older woman during check out was quite nippy. They clean and kick everyone... More

The place is very clean and safe. It is located in Corniglia, a beautiful place. However, they require that you leave the property around 11AM-3PM everyday for cleaning. Also, there is a curfew (~12 AM to 1 AM). The lockers are very spacious. Many mentioned the rule regarding leaving the key at the reception, but we were not asked to... More

My wife and I chose Corniglia out of all the towns in Cinque Terre because of its reputation as the most quiet. We chose to stay at the hostel based on Rick Steve's review and because we had had a great experience at the Ostello Archi Rossi in Florence. After a long day on the train, we arrived in Corniglia...

A newer facility among the rustic town of Corniglia. The lockers are spacious and come with a lock. The showers have great temperature control and privacy. The common area is the place to get complimentary WIFI as well as to socialize with the others in the hostel. The hostel had a 1:30am curfew and you have to be out of... More

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 &...
