Oh how I wish we could have stayed longer. Cute little room, nice bathroom, and within walking distance from the central station. But made really memorable by the super friendly staff. We got there right at tea time, and sat down with the staff, and soon a good deal of the patrons came around as well, what a family atmosphere!

Great hostel if you are looking for something relax and rather quiet. Totaly recommend it!! It is located in the city center; steps away from some main atraccions. Staff is friendly and helpful, though ask for specific adress when they recommend restaurants: they are difficult to find and the recepcionist's indications aren't perfect.

Great Hostel! I felt like I was in home! Friendly staff, great location (7 minutes walk from the train station and 10 minutes walk from the historical city center). They helped us a lot as my girlfriend had her wallet stolen in Pisa, providing anything we need to make some calls to cancel the credit card and also helping us getting some pizza and beers! The room was amazing, very clean! There is nothing to complain about this hostel. The atmosphere was very familiar. Thank you guys!

Thank you so much for everything my friends, it was so pleasant to stay at your small "home" paradise. I will have really great memories of my stay in Genoa and it's mainly because of you. Good luck with your future projects!

The staff was friendly and willing to give recommendations and chat in general. The rooms were clean and had a drawer that locked for valuables. If you follow the directions on the website, it is very easy to find!

The hostel is located in a hidden small street but it is easy to find if you follow the directions provided by the hostel. The staff are all very kind and helpful. The room is clean and spacious. A big locker(with lock and key) is included in the room. Everywhere is well decorated. Everything is just so perfect. Would come back for sure.

If you're travlling alone it's a cozy home away from home. Bare necessities in the room. Wifi only in lobby. Breakfast 3.5 euro extra (kind of expensive for some bread fruit and tea). Towels 2.5 euro. Overall it was a fine stay and I'm not sure it gets much better in Genoa. The staff were helpful and friendly too.

the place was really comfortable. i was the only one booked in my room when i went - maybe because it was winter? But, the stay was amazing and the owners were really warm and friendly.

Staff is great and continues to make the place better. Kitchen was being renovated while I was there and they have plans to offer more services and facilities. Room was clean and spacious. Huge locker and bathroom in room. Cozy common space. We bought groceries and staff and guests all chipped in for shared dinner both nights I was there.

Carlo is such a great host! You can tell he loves what he does, and if he's near the kitchen... You may be lucky to get a sample of whatever he's cooking up!
