My wife and I booked this hostel in Riomaggiore after cancelling a booking in Vernazza due to location. The choice was limited and my wife was sceptical about staying in a hostel. However, we were pleasantly surprised by what we found. The office was a 5 minute walk through the tunnel and up the street to the office. The office... More

I'm not sure we could have picked a better place to stay in Riomagiorre. The charming room was very conveniently located along the main strip. We actually enjoy the vibrancy of the noise from the street down below, but the doors/windows to the balcony were amazingly soundproof blocking out nearly all the noise when we closed them before retiring. The... More

I would definitely recommend staying at La Dolce Vita. Our room looked to have been recently refurbished. Very clean and the beds were super comfy. The room had a fantastic view over the street. Location was perfect - only a short walk to the train station. The price for the accommodation was extremely reasonable.

The location of this "hostel" is amazing. It's located in the first town of Cinque Terre and about a five minute walk from the train connecting to the other towns, five minutes to the beach, and the town connects to many different trails (including the one leading to Portovenere - highly recommended hike off the beaten path). I wouldn't really... More

* Good location. It's easy to get in and out of Cinque Terre when you're in Riomaggiore because it's the first stop after La Spezia. The place is also a short walk from the station. A lot of stairs are involved in getting to your room though * Lovely views from our room * Had that Italian Riviera homey feel... More

We didn't realize it would be an apartment until we arrived. The office is on the Main Street and then the man took us up to the room. By up I mean 133 stairs. (We counted). The view was spectacular! The windows all opened so we had nice breezes all the time. The bathtub was a small basin with a... More

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
