Despite being away from the hustle bustle of the main tourist area, i still struggle to fault the location. Being up in the mountains and being able to dine, fall asleep and wake up to such picturesque views was incredible. The free shuttle that ran 4 times a day (twice in the morning and twice in the evening) taking us down to Monterosso allowed us to both live like a tourist by day down in the towns and a local by night up in the mountains.The hostel itself is very impressive; cosy like a home but also very chic and incredibly clean, like a highly rated hotel. The host, Francesco is by far the warmest and most welcoming Italian I have come across in my travels around Italy. His hospitality does not stop at the complimentary glass of wine (or a can of coke for those who cant handle their drink like myself) upon arrival, but lasts up to the very last hug goodbye. His amazing cooking skills and easy going nature made us as guests feel as though we were part of an Italian family. I honestly had such an incredible time at this hostel and have been ranting about it to those at home ever since! Most definitely can not to wait to return!!!!!!!!!
