This a simple, nice place to stay, for a good price relatively to alternatives in the Cinque Terre area. The staff was very nice, very helpful, and very considerate. I received some great advice for my hiking days, and they did the best to accommodate all my needs. Dorm rooms are big and clean, and have comfy beds and a... More

This hostel is located in a really great spot. It's just a short (5-10 min) walk from the train station, in (my opinion) the best of the five cities. Manarola offers breathtaking sights and a really local, awesome atmosphere (quiet city, not good for the party type - I'd recommend Monterosso if you're looking for any sort of nightlife). The...

Hostel Cinque Terre is located on the top of Manarola village just behind the church. The rocky beach, coastal hiking trails and the train station of Manarola are few minutes away. A view from wide windows will reward the travelers with a 360° of the village, the Mediterranean sea, and the surrounding hillside terraced vineyards. Spacious rooms with ceiling fan... More

This is the only hostel in manrola I think. The rooms are big enough and there are lockers too which is awesome. The beds also are very comfortable and the fan in the room actually does something unlike most hostels. The showers are not too bad, they only work for a certain amount of time then you have to get... More

The hostel is in a good location, although the hill is a big test to the unfit or with heavy baggage! It's a good base if you only have time to actually stay in one of the villages. Sadly my stay was marred by bed bugs on my 2nd night, so I have to assume that they were brought in... More

Took a nap and woke up to several bites on my arms and then I saw a red bug walking on my sheet. I smashed the bug and blood squirted out. I googled bed bug and yep that's what it was! Showers are tiny and dirty. Toilets are pretty clean though. Good location. Bed bugs ruined my stay.

This hostel provides a great breakfast, hot showers, free wifi (in the lobby), annnnd that's about it. It is located at the top of manarolas hill and is a good workout to get to it! It is located right next to some hiking trails, but even better: the bell tower. At 7am the bell (right at room level) goes off... More

Accommodations were great especially since we were able to stay in one of the 5 towns of Cinque Terre and not outside of the main sites. Manarola is the second town and for us it had the most to do and second best location to get in the water! The hostel itself is good. You leave the train station take... More

was quiet and clean and an excellent value for cinque terre. Basic dorm rooms, free wifi in common areas (they have small area with chair and tables on each floor next to windows overlooking the village). Note that there is no kitchen facility. Several good places to eat in town along with small grocery stores/coop.

I stayed two nights in this hostel, the room was clean but the beds are loudy and older than my grandmother. The bathroom was dirty, the showers very small and there is no kitchen, just a restaurant. The people are nice and helped us choosing a path for hiking, that's almost the only good point...
