Hello, Tiffany:

I've stayed at Mama Rosa's hostel in Riomaggiore. The location can't be beat, the kitchen is lots of fun with everyone trying to get their suppers cooked & the price is right.

However, Mama's son is a cat fancier & the cats are allowed total access to the hostel & there's a lingering odor of kitty litter boxes throughout. Also, the showers aren't as clean as they might be, so be sure you have shower shoes. The electricity went out one night when one of my companions was in the shower & she says the memory of being in that shower with no lights can still give her nightmares.

But for a night or two, it'll do just fine.
