    Couldn't fault this place at all. Only thing I would say is that I always made sure I was back before it got dark as many of the backstreets in Genova do not feel safe especially for tourists.

    The staff was great, the hostel is well located, the rooms are clean and the place is conveniently close to the Piazza Principe train station. On the other side, the bed was not the most comfortable I have ever had, but overall it was a pleasant stay and I would recommend staying here too.

    Although not in the nicest area of Genova it’s a really nice hostel and the staff are super. The lock in the mixed 4 bed dorm didn’t work (was due to be repaired) which was a little off putting but wasn’t a problem in the end. There are huge lockers beside each bed which is great. Again, the staff are really helpful and great.

    Staff really cool and helpful!! However I was told the kitchen closes at night for some reason? There were a lot of flies around the communal sink.. The alley ways nearby (a road away) are filled with people just hanging around all the time, personally not very appealing to me. Apart from this I met some cool people and the bathrooms are fantastic!

    The hostel is fine but the area around it is highly questionable. I went out looking for something round the corner and it became apparent the whole alley was looking at me and I wasn't welcome. The police and what looked like an army guy were outside the hostel at one point doing something with someone. Witnessed a fight not too far from the hostel. If you staying here stick to main roads and hours of light! Best not to stay in Genoa though whole place was real downer on my trip!

    A/C didn’t work. When we complained we were not taken seriously and had to wait 48 hours before this issue was finally addressed. Most staff weren’t willing to help. The way this issue was handled put a sour note on our stay in the hostel. However, location was ideal- close to train & bus stations. Overall facilities were sufficient.
