Very friendly staff. Clean, nice hostel. Far from town but easy to get to by bus. No kitchen but they do have a microwave. Has a lockout from 10:00-2:30.
Enjoyed the experience of a great staff and super clean facilities. Even my wife enjoyed staying there and it was her first experience at a Hostel, They had plenty of space for parking and a the city bus services was great with a stop right outside the gate.
Big hostel but not that many people. The staff was very friendly. A bit far from the city but it didn't feel like it with the buses and the lifts. The staff were very helpful with giving me things to see and do, and how to get there. Unfortunately there was a large group of high schoolers from france who were really loud and a bit annoying. Otherwise a good hostel. Loved the book exchange
I was here just 01night. The receptionists were nice and the out-side view is really interesting to me. Everything was ok, the room was large, but my bed. I chose 8-male Dormitiry room. My bed was the upper one. When I climb on, it swayed and vibrated that made me feel I would fallen down. And each activity of my, I saw the hot-face of the bottom-bed guy. It looked like he could punch me right away. :D anyway, that was the cheapest choice.

Nice,clean hostel.a bit far from the city center but with a great view.Staff are really friendly and helpful.having a plug in the room would have been good but instead of this it was a great place to stay :)
A quiet hostel with a terrace and a view on the port. Bus n°40 runs from "Genova Brignole train station" to the hostel in about 45 minutes. Quite long but actually it is the only hostel in Genova. I 've been surprised by the great cleanliness of the bathrooms and toilets. Rooms are spacious, clean and luminous. Atmosphere is good and staff is nice. Ok for a recommendation.
Great place to take a break from all the big city Tourist areas. Nice and quiet. Great transportation to and from metro.spotlessly clean with many private showers and toilets. The information for sights to see was very well presented and also how to get there. The staff was very nice and very helpful. Only downside, you don't have a kitchen. Large facility dorm type.
What a great hostel!! The staff was especially knowledgeable and even though it's a bit out of the way, it's a gorgeous location, easy to get to and a very enjoyable ride. Highly recommend staying here.

Location was good, less than a half hour walk from the train station. It was the cheapest option and was very nice and super clean. Some said it was creepy but it was nice having our own room. Definitely would recommend it and stay there again! Beautiful view from the top of the hill!
This was a great hostel!! staff was very helpful and the location is Beautiful..
really nice place, but we had some problems in the morning, when we had to pack and leave, but there was no light... and also the heat was off... the stuff explained that this is the way they save the energy
The staff at the hostel were very helpful. The location of the hostel is on top of the hill so reaching there was quite an adventure as even our car navi got confused sometimes because of the crazy roads. The hostel doesn't have any game rooms just some place to sit and eat. The view from the hostel is quite good and the Forts of Genoa are easily accessible from the hostel.
This hostel was a little.. odd to say the least... When my girlfriend and I arrived, we were literally the ONLY ones staying in the building. It was a little creepy to say the least because the dormitory style rooms gave off an 'asylum' kind of feel. You won't find any character in these walls, although the staff are very helpful. The location was a little out of the way as well. Take bus number 40 if you want to get there and ask the bus driver for the stop once you're near the top of the hill.
