I loved staying at your hostel, we had a great time. The hostel had a great location, everything was clean, the staff was very friendly and so was the pricing. But when you tell people you can get a key for 10 euros, make it clear the 10 euros are a deposit and you will get it back. Because this was why we didn't get one right away. Also the restaurant you recommended was closed. I don't know if you always recommend the same restaurant but I thought I would say it anyways.

Great central location and clean with abundant air conditioning that works CONSISTENTLY! If you've been through Italy, you'll know that if there is AC, it goes away inexplicably for long periods for no good reason. Not this place though! But what makes the real difference is the staffing. The two Italian "ragazze" really helped with everything, even taking five minutes to show you where to get the best caffe and brioche via a hand drawn map. The staffing made me want stay in Genoa longer.

Very friendly hostel. Staff are helpful. Great to have air con in the bedrooms. Hostel was clean. Very easy to find from website directions and close to the main station. Security was very good. The breakfast was excellent value. The only negative point was the very slow lift.

Great location, although it takes a bit to find your way down the tiny alleyways of Genoa. The staff was very friendly and easy to talk to. The fridge available to the guests was very useful. Atmosphere was fun and I met some great people. Good cheap beer available upon request. A+++ on the air conditioner in the dorm. The bathroom was clean and everything worked well.

The front desk was very nice! We didn't stay for very long, but had a pleasant experience while we were there.

Short walk from the train station and to the port, though the tiny surrounding allyways seemed a little sketchy at night. The staff was great and were very helpful. Would recommend the breakfast. Would return!

Really good location, easy to find from the Genova Piazza Principe station (directions were available on the hostel's page). Staff were very nice and helped whenever needed (cheap beer available too). Great atmosphere; met some amazing people there too! Nice, decently stocked (for a hostel) kitchen, with fridge, oven, cooker etc, which was really helpful. Overall the hostel was clean, the dorms were nice, good bathrooms (awesome air conditioning), good Wi-Fi. Would definitely recommend.

Amazing Hostel. Staff is super nice, breakfast (3,50 euro) is really good and fresh. Rooms are clean and modern. I would defenitely stay there again. the only downside i could find is maybe the kind of sketchy area, but therefore you are close to the Piazza Principe and the Harbour. The other thing is, the lockers in the room have all the same key! basically i could open another locker with my key. not really the sense of a locker though. keep that in mind.

This was an awesome hostel! In the centre of town, close to all the attractions and nightlife. The rooms and bathrooms were extremely clean. The staff was very helpful and pleasant. There was a wonderful home-cooked dinner on Friday night. If you enjoy being social, this is the hostel for you!

Great hostel, only let down by its location and the slightly dodgy area it's in. I wouldn't have felt comfortable walking around at night. Great staff and facilities (and air con!), we recommended it to the people we met going to Genoa.

Great place. Though the breakfast was not included, the price was not too terrible, and the breakfast itself was quite nice.
