We stayed in a two person, private ensuite apartment. Not sure what the other rooms are like but our room was great! Beautiful ocean view and clean room, but be prepared to hike up quite a few stairs to get to the room. Bathroom could use an update, but other than that we enjoyed our stay.

Big bed, big wine glasses and big stairs. Great place for watching the day unfold. Room is clean. Family that run this are really lovely and helpful. When you first arrive, look for number 167 on the main street, that is where you check in. The actual accommodation is another few paces up.

Hard to find places in Cinque Terre to begin with and Riomaggiore is definitely the best town to stay in but Doce Vita or 167 or whatever they're calling it these days is a huge hassle. You check in at one place, then someone walks you through the city while you drag your luggage up hills and down back alleys,... More

The place is just a walking distance after the tunnel in close to train station. Clean cosy room as simple but yet charming as the village. A very clean and comfy bed and pillow with a hot cold AC . Watch out for stairs

We stayed two nights in March and were greeted upon check in with home made limoncello from the grandpa siting in the office! He was adorable. The room was clean and quiet and a nice large size. We were on the first floor. My shower was ok the first day but my husbands shower was cold the second day. No... More

This was my second time at this accommodation and it was just a good as the first visit. The rooms are comfortable, well appointed and very good value. Sure, the top room is up a heap of stairs, but what isn't in Riomaggiore? The service was particularly helpful and super friendly. Highly recommended!

We stayed here for 2nights, up on the 3rd floor of the hostel. It was a big room with a very spacious toilet. With two windows opening out to the main street of the village, it was awesome. Except for the challenge of lugging your luggage up the steep and narrow stairs, this place is wonderful.

The location was on the main street of Riomagiore, which helps on buying grocery (4... More
