Cinqueterre Residence in Riomaggiore (southernmost of the 5 towns), was very happy with it overall (spacious + clean room, no maintenance issues, solid breakfast spread, friendly fellow tourists), if I went again I might look to stay somewhere more central though to make travelling easier. With the ferries travelling between towns isn't so bad but you are at the mercy of their schedule. Riomaggiore to Manorola (next town over) is very walkable, but most other walks from town to town are much longer. We hiked from Monterosso to Vernazza, took ~90 mins and was a moderately challenging hike (note: I'm not an experienced hiker, just using intuition here). Monterosso was super cool too, would love to stay there somewhere, just check Yelp for hotels...
