Very friendly staff, very clean room but the hotel is tired and could do with a lick of paint and a freshen up.
Friendly helpful host who spoke excellent English. Room rustic and sun terrace relaxing. Big problem was that we did not get confirmation email and directions, so Sat Nav took us on a magical mystery tour of the hillsides. Easy to reach by car really just head for Gavi and you will pass it on the right. Great location between in the countryside, forget Genoa and explore Gavi(35 minutes away), with outdoor swimming pool and other quaint towns. Also near to walking trails, who needs the city???
Excellent helpful staff. The number 40 bus is a great bonus to the YHA and allows for visits into Genoa. Rooms were clean and also no hassles in the shared bathrooms, although they could use notices to advice people to clean up after themselves. The facility to make a hot drink was useful. I recommend tables outside to improve the area. Great views of Genoa.
