About Mar-Mar

Looking for the perfect place to take a step back from all the crowds, rushing around viewing churches, museums and monuments?

Mar-Mar offers dormitory-style accommodations in the Cinque Terre with a difference, offering you a slower pace of life that has changed little over hundreds of years. Local residents still maintain some of their traditional livelihoods of fishing and wine making, living on the steep rugged hillsides along the Cinque Terre coastline.

Riomaggiore is the southernmost village of the 'five lands', making it an ideal place to begin your exploration of the Cinque Terre National Park and the famous hiking trails. This is the ultimate location to relax with the locals, take some time out and experience the authentic rural Italian lifestyle.

Mar-Mar has traditional accommodations, full of character and home comforts, right alongside those of the locals so you feel part of the community right from the beginning.

Explore the remainder of the villages at your own pace either on foot or by train. Take some locally made wine down to the rocks and watch the sunset over the med, or enjoy a meal made with fresh local ingredients at one of the many little osterias. If you are a hiker, outdoors enthusiast or just want to switch off and chill out by the sea, Mar-Mar in Riomaggiore has the laid back atmosphere you just might be craving.

***As of July 22, 2013, the rate includes breakfast and nearby Bar O'Netto (reservations made prior to this date do NOT include breakfast, but it is possible to have breakfast for an extra fee).

Free WiFi is available at Bar O'Netto which is just a few minutes walk from the dorm.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

I stayed 2 nights. Everything was ok. There was a lot of space, "hot" water, a kitchen and everything we needed. The staff was serious but not really smiling. I recommand this place.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

This place was great value for 22 euros per night! Just a short walk from Riomaggiore train station. I booked for a big dorm, but ended up in a 3 bed studio flat with kitchen, toilet, shower with a lot of utensils for cooking, plenty of hot water in shower etc. There was even a washing machine, but that did not work (it would have been too much already!). Roommates were great, all we missed was some evening activity (there are only restaurants and a gelato bar). Room was spacious, on a cute little "street", warm with brand new windows. Sheets and towel were included, which was a pleasant surprise for me, having been out of touch with hostels for decades.

There was an American woman at the reception at arrival who was less than friendly, but other staff seemed ok and all in all the place can be highly recommended.
