Hostel Cinque Terre Manarola Reviews
A little too organized, but worth it. Mar 27, 2009
The Ostello 5-Terre was created from a rundown building. Now it's modern and is a full service hostel.
They offer dorms, single/double/quad rooms most ensuite (bathroom in the room). The dorm I stayed in was not ensuite, but the bathroom was right across the hall.
The hostel is slightly more expensive then others and I'm not sure it's worth the extra price because there's no other benefits other then the fact it is currently the only hostel located in one of the Cinque Terre towns.
The hostel offers internet for 4€/hour and since they keep your passport it's difficult to get other locations to let you use the internet...not to mention the towns are small and internet cafe's are difficult to find anyway. (There's a large one in Riomaggiore but you need a passport to use it)
They have laundry on site (4€ wash, 2€ dry) (2 washers and 2 dryers).
There is a resturant one site which I didn't try but it looked good and had reasonable prices.
They provide sheets, but you will need your own towel. They do rent them for 1.50€/day with 5€ deposit.
To shower they give you a token which will let you shower for 5 min. If you need more tokens you have to pay .50€ for each additional token. The token machine is outside of the shower stall so you have to run out naked and drop the next coin.
I don't know if you need a token for ensuite rooms.
I don't recommend staying in the Cinque Terre, rather make it a day trip. If you are going to stay there then this is a good option.

Dorm accomodation in the beautiful Cinque Terre Apr 23, 2008
I stayed at the Hostel Cinque Terre for 3 nights in April. It's located high on the hill in Manarola, one of the smaller Cinque Terre villages.
Large rooms and lockers
Cheap meals and snacks
Laundry on site (the cheapest I could find in CT, 6 euros wash and dry)
Patio that gets lots of sun
Lock out from 10 to 4
High on the hill, so the walk is steep but the entire town is on a hill!
You receive a shower token that is good for one, five minute shower. It was enough time for me, but maybe not for everyone
Internet was expensive (1 euro for 15 minutes)
Overall I thought it was a great accomodation for a single traveller. Since I spent the day sightseeing, the lockout didn't affect me. However, at almost 50 euros for two people, you might be better off staying in a room, that seem to be plentiful throughout the Cinque Terre.
