Manarola is the best village for what I think and that hostel is among the cheapest with a good service and nice rooms. The food is quite expensive, but there is a coop near in the village. A lot of people said there was a long road to go to the hostel from the train station but this is not... More

The hostel was located at the top of the hill in Manarola, my favourite town in Cinque Terre. So it was a bit of hike up to the hostel, but it had wonderful views. The hostel itself was average. The beds were comfortable, and it felt very safe, but the bathrooms were horrendous. The showers had ants in them and... More

I stayed here for 3 nights in July and 90% of my stay was phenomenal. The customer service was beyond amazing. I was meeting a friend here traveling from London and she realized the day of arrival she possibly couldn't stay for the third night. The man at the desk very generously let us figure it out and pay for... More

This was my second time staying here at Ostello 5T in Manarola and I just love it here! This time was with my hubby and we took private room, which was perfect for two people! Spacious, super clean and private toilet/shower was a plus! Beautiful view from the terrace! Nicest staff, esp, Riccardo, who I met a few uears ago... More

Overall I would recommend this hostel if staying in the cinque terre region on a budget. It's biggest pro is the location. It is in Manarola which I think is the best of the five towns, not as busy as Monterresso (biggest of the five) and easier to get to than say Corniligia (you need to climb 365 steps from... More

A basic hostel in a great location. Clean dorms, comortable beds with duvets, friendly staff, and yummy food available from the hostel restaurant. I left my phone there and they forwarded it on to Rome for me. Great service. Would defintiely recommend it.

I really enjoyed my stay at the Ostello Cinque Terre in May 2014. Manarola is a wonderful town and offers great access to the other towns in the Cinque Terre. The hostel is very easy to find by following the directions on the website. The staff is very friendly, helpful, and welcoming. The 6-bed all female dorm room on the... More

This hostel is perfectly located (although quite uphill from train station so it's tough carrying bags up!) for hiking and sightseeing. Comfy beds. Lockers available. Negatives: wifi doesn't reach 2nd floor. Bathrooms get dirty & smelly and the small showers have no place to keep your clothes dry. No kitchen or fridge available for guests but affordable restaurant prices.

Beds comfortable and blankets very cozy. Wifi didn't reach my room on the 2nd floor but worked well everywhere else. A generally a quiet hostel, with no real common area to meet people but staff were friendly and facilities clean. I recommend purchasing breakfast in the morning, croissants were delicious! It is worth spending a night in cinque Terre and... More
