Had a great stay there, rooms were large and convenient


Nice and close to La Spezia station. When you arrive it says to call the buzzer, there was a recorded message that was all in Italian which we couldn't understand, someone who lives in the building offered to call the owner for us and they arrived shortly afterwards, I'm not sure what we would have done if we didn't have someone to call for us. Apart from that the room was clean and had everything we needed. Beds were a bit soft and uncomfortable.


I booked a twin room with Il Getto Zorba. On arrival, we were lead to another property which was part of the train station called Casa Dante and shown to our double room! No explaination was offered and my surprise was waved off with a 'don't speak English' remark! We were also charged an addition tax of €6. Although small, the booking stated all tax was included. Breakfast was voucheres to be redeemed in various bars in the area. The room was beautiful but the lack of notification was not!

hostel was fine . area a bit rough but once you walk to harbour its nice, and perfect location for cinque terra. referred to a cafe where food is not good. they should discontinue this because it spoils the experience.
