Stayed 1 night in July 2013. Overall it was an ok place to stay but the location, smell in the hallway, and weird bathroom plumbing were big negatives.
Unfortunately, they were unable to get a taxi when we arrived at the train station and had to walk with our packs. Not a problem and a short walk from the town until you get to the stairs...which are a long brutal way up with luggage.
The common areas/hallway had a very off smell from not getting any air flow through. Just smelled stale.
The room was ok, a decent size, but also had a bit of a smell. There was no air conditioning which made it difficult to sleep. The furniture in the room was alright, though some of it had significant wear. The towels were not great and the bathroom was not the best. The shower was very awkward and difficult to wash in without bumping into something. Also got water all over the floor. All of the plumbing ran to a pump box which was very loud so anytime you ran water you then got the loud pump running noise. Enough to wake up anyone in the main room if you get up in the middle of the night.
The location was ok, but not close to the old town of Monterosso or the shops/restaurants.
For the price, I'd highly recommend staying in one of the other towns in Cinque Terre in nicer accommodations for less. The trains between the 5 towns are often enough and very cheap. It only takes 2 minutes to go from one town to the next.
