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.

This hostel (generally separate rooms) are located in the main street of Riomaggiore. You have direct, on-foot, access to lots of bars/restaurants/shops. The room was nice and clean (new towels every 1-2 days). Room (#1, first floor) had to bee renovated lately.
