Fabulous little hostel right in the centre of Riomaggiore! Extremely clean (cleaners come daily) and spacious with the added bonus of an outdoor balcony perfect for the afternoon sun or dinner. Complementary breakfast at the bar downstairs which is amazing (make sure you get the muffins). Perfect for our short visit and well worth what you pay.

The view is amazing! Absolutely amazing. Even better, there is a little balcony to be outside and enjoy the view. For the price we thought this place was great. But there isn't wifi so if you're staying for an extended period that may be an issue for your. With our short stay, this wasn't an issue.

This is one of the best places I've stayed at while travelling. Their apartments are clean, in a central location and the best part is feeling like you are truly a part of the town. The husband and wife duo who run this place will help you with ANYTHING you need. The apartment we stayed in had a great view... More

I stayed two nights here at Mar Mar in the lovely cinque terre. So this isn't a hostel just so you know. Once you arrive at the bar Giovanni takes you to another location across the square. Not very sociable but the rooms are clean, neat and there is a kitchen for some light cooking. Giovanni is friendly, much friendlier... More

Our stay at Mar Mar was pretty good! There were many positives: a nice amount of space, comfortable bed, pretty view, and close to the restaurants and train. The negatives were the shower which was really low water pressure and turning on the heat seemed to create a leak that soaked the bathroom. Lastly, there wasn't wifi available, but this... More

It wasn't a great choice but it was fine for 2 nights for 3 persons. The good point of the apartment is not far from the sea and clean. The room was not good maintenance, lamps weren't working and windows were old style and not double glass. So that why we heard everything from outside and too noisy sometime. For... More

I stayed in the 10 bed dorm here for a few nights and I had a great time. The dorm was more like it's own apartment, complete with kitchen, terrace, and lounge. The location is right by the main train station and the marina. The only minor inconvenience was that the wifi is only provided at the bar downstairs. The... More

I had the pleasure to find this gem of an apartment disguised as a hostel!! I booked with hostel world which described it as a 10 bedroom dorm which is really not giving them enough credit. This is a huge spacious apartment with a huge wonderful terrace where I spent a lot of time gazing down into the city and... More

Mar-Mar was in a great location, very close to the tunnel that leads from the town to the train station. It was small, but we didn't need much space because we would be outside most of our visit anyway. The view was awesome, and the apartment was neat and clean. The man who was renting it out was nice and... More
