Liked: The hostel is in a nice, quiet town in the hills, 10-15min car ride from La Spezia. Management was helpful, even drove us to La Spezia in a rush at 7am after public transit denied us!! Many thanks!! Nice terrace/patio area with pingpong table and gathering area. Return shuttle ride offered to and from Cinque Terre. A nice, quiet, more relaxed change of pace from major bustling European cities. Met some fellow travellers/made friends. Enjoyed our stay.

Disliked: For the hostel being in a quiet town, if you're into that sort of thing, the town pretty much shuts down fairly early. Only one restaurant in town (Biassa) although pizza delivery is available, poste/transit office closed early/open a little later. Mind the European Sunday schedules of businesses. Transit access limited into and from town. Clock tower in town rings at 7am daily.

Liked: Even though it was quite out of Cinque Terre, the shuttle service and friendly staff meant this really wasn't a problem. Dorm was fine, big lockers and secure and clean. There was a good amount of bathrooms for the amount of people there and they were kept really clean. Communal areas were great for meeting other travellers and the kitchen/dining room was much appreciated, it also had beautiful views over the town.

Disliked: The town was remote, small and lacked necessities like a proper supermarket. Only one restaurant in town which gave a few of us food poisoning and was really bad. The only other way to eat is to order pizza through the hostel which starts at 8pm so keep this in mind.

Liked: Das Zimmer, das wir bezogen haben, ist grosszügig und sogar mit etwas Luxus (einem kleinen Fernseher) ausgestattet. Auch die sanitären Einrichtungen waren in einem guten Zustand.

Disliked: Zum Hostel gelangt man mit einem kleinen Bus, der 15 Minuten unterwegs ist und nur bis ungefähr 20:00 Uhr fährt. Es gibt allerdings noch einen Shuttle-Service des Hostels.

Liked: Clean, good transfer service to Cinque Terre & good in-room wifi

Disliked: If you're after a good nights sleep, I would NOT recommend this hostel. We chose this due to the description of not being a party hostel & implementation of curfews etc as we wanted a good nights sleep before & after the Cinque Terre trek... Unfortunately this was not the case. It was the noisiest hostel we have stayed in, it's also extremely hot with no aircon & no kitchen facilities.

Disliked: Most of it. Shared shower room between men and women with see-through glass (I *tried* not to look like some kind of perv, honest I did). Shower door didn't have a bolt on it. Staff aren't particularly helpful.

Liked: It was located in a cute village near cinque terre and the price was ok. Two staff girls from Poland were very helpful and nice. There were many bathrooms. The shuttle to cinque terre made it easy to get to the villages. There were two little grocery stores from were to get some breakfast.

Disliked: You had to be quick to book shuttle to get the timetable you wanted.

Liked: At the end of the day, you've been to Cinque Terre (otherwise I don't know why you'd be here) so you can't really be upset. Free shuttle service if you stay at least three nights (we did) was awesome. They're really clear about getting to cinque terre, what to do there and everything at the hostel without you even having to ask, clearly have a good amount of experience with that. Great location and great price.

Disliked: They didn't really enforce all of their policies (Being quiet after 11, no excessive drinking on grounds) which would have been nice after a long day of travelling.

Liked: This is the best hostel I have stayed at. It's clean, big, staff very friendly, in a great small village. The public bus of the national park and the great shuttle bus (very cheap) to cinque terre takes some minutes to get to Riomaggiore, the first village. Biassa the village is a really great place by itself, but it's also in a good location to visit Cinque terre, since rooms in the villages of cinque terre are really expensive. Definitely recommended!

Disliked: Rosa left no negative feedback.

Liked: The staff was super friendly and helpful. One day the public bus was broken down so we were stranded with no way of getting to Riomaggiore, and the employee drove us in his personal car! I felt very safe here and they even gave my friend and I our own 4 bed room even though there were other guests and we hadnt paid for a private. The hostel is actually in Biassa, so don't count on walking to Cinque Terre (Riomaggiore), but you can take the Green public bus very easily and it is cheap, only 1.50. The hostel also has a shuttle service and they are very kind about giving rides. Sheets were included, towels available for rent. Great stay!

Disliked: Internet connection was bad and the beds weren't the most comfortable.

Liked: Clean linens, free breakfast, one staff member was very friendly and helpful (probably the owner). Cheap shuttle to and from Cinque Terre which is only a 20-30 minute drive.

Disliked: Location, it's located in a small town that is hard to get to (bus runs every hour, but there is a blackout time from 1-430 so if you miss the bus you're stuck). The hostel also has a lock-out period from 10-230, not only room but the entire hostel so you are required to leave. There is nothing to do in the small town so you either need to bus into La Spezia (which also mostly shuts down till the evening) or go to Cinque Terre. Only three showers for the entire hostel, and they had slightly frosted glass doors so you could see other people and no room inside the shower stall to change. Also the owner said they were having problems with animals, not sure what he meant by that.

Liked: Luca, the typical Italian man on the reception was very fun. The pizzas of the town is delicious! The atmosphere, especially the outside and the service facility to Cinque Terre is very good. But I wish the service could be a little bit later in the evening because it is such a beatiful place that you cannot finish in a day. Thanks Luca, you're the best!

Disliked: Some friends of the staff (who were visiting them from outside) were quite horrible. They do not know how to behave especially to ladies. They were drunk and I guess his ear was out of order to hear what he was saying. This was the only thing which disturbed me. But the staff knew how to solve that problem at least.

Liked: nice people, shuttle service to Cinque Terre available for 2€

Disliked: jsut reachable by bus which has quite a bad schedule, wi-fi is not available in the rooms but only in front of the office, breakfast was just some wrapped croissants and blank cornflakes with milk - but for one night this is ok!
