5 Terre Backpackers was hands-down the best hostel I have ever stayed at (and I've stayed at many). Francesco, the owner, and his staff are all wonderful people and so helpful and friendly. While this hostel is not located in one of the Cinque Terre Towns, there is a free shuttle that takes you to Riomaggiore in the morning and picks you up in the evening. The drive through the winding roads is beautiful, and there is a nice patio area with amazing views of the mountains. The facilities were very clean and modern, with nice beds and bathrooms. Francesco cooks dinner for 10 euro a person every night, and the food is amazing. Everyone eats together family-style, and it is a great way to meet people. The hostel only has around 20-25 beds, so there is a very welcoming and family atmosphere. Francesco is very attentive to everyone's needs and passionate about his job. Staying at this hostel for four nights is one of the main reasons my stay in Cinque Terre was amazing, and I will definitely be returning to 5 Terre Backpackers. If you can, definitely book a room here. You won't regret it!
