“Perfect place to stay in Portovenere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

We stayed only two nights at this hostel, but as soon as we arrived we wished we had booked for longer. The location is superb, perched over the harbour, two minutes from all the shops and restaurants. Check in was quick and the staff were friendly. Our room was very simple was quite large and airy, with high ceilings and windows opening to a sea view. The facilities were clean. Breakfast was very basic, breads, coffee, juice etc, but that was fine with us. There are 24 hours vending machines for hot drinks, water, snacks etc. Our only problem was that the reception hours are very limited, and so late arrivals / early departures can be a nuisance. Otherwise, everything was great! It's not a fancy place, but I would not hesitate to stay here again. Basic accommodation at a good value.
