This hotel is perfect for low budget travelers. It's in an excellent location to see the port of Genoa. Staff are friendly and it's very secure. 5 minute walk from the train station.

A great place to stay! A little odd to get to down a one way street. Nice and close to the train station, and the woman at the desk was very helpful and kind with directions, food recommendations, and parking help! Would definitely stay again!

It is close to the subway station.Staff is not helpful at all.Internet connection is bad.


Perfect. Cheap. Clean. Great location. Very helpful staff. In the heart of the medieval section of Genoa and close to train station for excursions to fantastic seaside villages!!

I arrived at 20hs as I requested in the hostelworld site. There was a sign in the doorwith a number to call. So I did and they refused to come and recieve me . So I was left in the S treet with more than 60kg in language. Expect to recieve at least my reservation money back.. Which I even payed for the "flexible" rate. Thank you, Marcos Di iorio

Not recommended to be honest. The location is ok-ish as it's 10min walking from the train station but the hostel is located next to a very noisy street so take your earplugs with you. The room itself is fine too but there is no daylight and the bulblight is very poor. The bathroom is very old. By no means buy the breakfest. It is an absolute waste of money. I have never seen something so basic. Instead buy yourself food in the nearby supermarket. Genova is a creepy city btw so better skip it.


Mini Hotel refused our reservation through the website, though we have already paid 15% deposit. Do not trust Mini Hotel

Not overly impressed.


Be ready to lose your money if you arrive early in the morning or late at night. There is nobody inside and nobody answers phone calls.

Good Morning, We inform that the reception is open from 8 am to 8 pm., Thanks and best regards. the Direction


Very nice hotel


Best choice for a trip to Genoa. It is really close to the Old Port and great value for money! Recommend it!


Fair priced hostel in a good location. Free Wifi available. Contrary to the comments on this website I found the staff actually rather friendly. The noise from the street is definitely true though (I slept with earplugs), but I suppose that is unavoidable if you are in the old centre of Genoa with its narrow alleys...


We were very pleased with our stay here! Very good price, perfect location, and we were glad for the air conditioning.


Small Hotel right in the middle of center. No dorms, but very small rooms, that all point to a very loud busy little street, where shopowners open their shops early with a lot of noise. Genova is very humid in summer, especially in the small streets of old town and extra special in these small rooms without van or AC. And rooms are dark and simple. BUT it was clean, save, good value for the money, especially with the location inthe old town - which is a 20 min. walk from the main train station.


The location of the hostel is perfect: almost inside the city center. Also the train station is pretty close by. It can get a bit scary at night, specially if you don't know which "vicolos" (alleys) are safe.


The room was basic but cheep, the location is great for seeing Genova :) Dont ever expect to sleep here. The hotel is super, good value for money and everything. Just the street outside is very,very noisy and the windows dont keep any noise out. Shops outside close at 11pm, 11:15, 11:30....2am (always with a VERY loud noise), then drunken people shouting and at 4:30 the newspapermen start (nice loud noise again). At 6am the shops open...no, not at the same time...no aircondition in the room.


Location is great, right next to the port with the nice restaurants. CLose to train and bus station which also takes you to the airport. We only stayed there one night and to be honest its okay for a nights stay or if you're traveling. I wouldn't recommend it if you're going on a couple trip. It's basic and it does what it says on the tin. SImple as that really.


Is better if you reserve direct with the hotel because I payed too much for a single room! The very good things is the location and the stuff is really nice!


Budget hotel but for the price it's was good nice location not far from the port a few restaurants around. Room was quite warm aircob wasn't the best clean bathroom! Overall a good stay


It was clean and the location was really good. We had a little problem with our room door, we couldn't lock it down easily, and likewise we couldn't open it easily. However, we just stayed one night, so that was not a really big problem to us.
