Although a bit cramped, the common room was good for socialising. I really didn't get any sleep at this hostel though, as they turn the aircon off at night so it gets hot ( apparently due to the "noise ") yet they let people stay up and make noise in the common room and you can hear everything in the doorms. Beds were squeaky too. Staff were great though and the walking tour is amazing!!

I stayed only for one night but the staff was nice and helpful. Place is clean and rooms are good. The atmoshere tough was awesome on the night I was there. Nice place if you want to meet people. Also they organized walking tour in the city which is a nice add on.

Very clean and welcoming hostel. Staff is really nice and helps a lot when it comes to discover the city. Dorms were clean, lockers are free to rent (with deposit). 1€ tax per day per person to pay. Not a party hostel, but a really nice place to stay, right in the city center. Highly recommend.

Spiro, the guy in charge is possible the nicest guy on the planet. The rooms are typical shared dorms with bunks. Bathrooms are above average. Location is pretty good, I didn't use any public transport when I was there. I like that you have to write your name on the chalkboard above your bed, it makes it less awkward when you forgot one of your roommates names. The kitchen is really nice and open to use. There was a nice friendly vibe here and I'd recommend it if you're staying a night or two.

The atmosphere was sure very open and warm so we only regret we didn't spent more time there. Anyway we will come there again in case of the next visit of Genoa and we recommend the hostel to friends.

Excellent staff - Giulio was at reception and was particularly helpful with a very thorough knowledge of the city and was able to recommend a few essential sites to see in the city which I could see in my short time in Genova. The hostel is in a really superb location, right in the centre of the historic part of the city which is stunning. Spacious rooms, clean bathrooms and a nice common room. It was a shame I could only spend 12 hours in Genova which is a fantastic city.

I expected this hostel to be closer to the station and known for its location based on reviews, it seemed the longest to get to compared to other hostels I have stayed in but a easy walk to bars and the main square.

Dear guest, You can easily verify location on internet: 15 minute walk to train station and 7 minutes to get to Genova main square. To be central doesn't literary mean to be attached to the train station. Also from here you can easily visit the best part of the city, the historical town, which is part f the Unesco sites. Best regards, Giulio Talamanca

Needs far more toilets for the amount of guests they have, or at the very least, separate shower/toilet rooms. Clean rooms, comfortable bedding, great kitchen facilities. No real place to lock your entire bag away, however small lockers are available for smaller items. Good wifi. Very easy to explore the old town from their location.

Staff were brilliant and gave us a map of all the places to visit in Genoa (the hostel is close to all of them) and also direction to the nearest beaches. Rooms were air conditioned which was a blessing and the common area and shared kitchen make socialisation easy. Lockers were provided and security was great. Highly recommend this hostel.

A great place to stay. Staff are friendly and very accommodating, will go out their way to help you out. Atmosphere is amazingly friendly - the hostel is small and it's easy to meet people with a great communal space and kitchen. Would definitely recommend without a doubt.
