Friendly staff and very clean . Quite far from anything and not a very walkable city
The hostel was a decent bus ride ( the turns up the hill must be great for movie car chases!) from the center, but the view was great. Staff was very friendly.
Location: Difficult to get to when first arrived in Genoa. Needed to catch one bus, get off at a specific bus stop, cross a very busy road and catch another bus to an unfamiliar location. Staff: The majority of staff were great and very helpful. Sadly one women was distant and disdainful of our questions. We did not feel welcomed by her. Atmosphere: The hostel does not have a kitchen and lacks the atmosphere that goes with people preparing meals, eating together. and socialising.
Almost twenty minute bus ride from the train station/center of town, bus is usually packed so its interesting if you have a huge backpack. This hostel is a mix between a day care, which operates out of the bottom of the building, and an insane asylum (not in a good way). They give you sheet but it obvious they don't was the ones that cover the mattresses because they were full of peoples hair. I don't think they should even be classified as a hostel.
