    They are hands down the best Hostel I stayed in Italy! The staff goes beyond friendly, they became my almost Italian family. Really professional and super fun to be around. The accommodations are nice as well. Bathrooms are spotless and bed sheets the cleanest. The location is a walking distance to the main attractions. Principe Station is just a 10 minutes walk from the Hostel. Make sure to take Via Baldi to get to the Hostel and not the way Google tells you to. You guys are awesome! Thanks :)

    Top place with lovely staff and a great central location between the bus station and town. Rooms are well looked after and had no issues the entire stay.

    This hostel is really lovely. Excellent staff, small and comfortable dorms, a cozy common room and a well equipped kitchen. It’s very close to Principe train station which was wonderfully convenient. The breakfast buffet, at a cost of two euros, was also really good. We only stayed one night here, but we wished we’d had more time at the hostel. We would definitely return.

    The Abbey has a great location close to the station and the old town. The staff is very friendly and helpful, they make everyone feel very welcome. There’s a simple breakfast available and a cosy communal area. The bathroom is spacious and the lockers are ample enough to store big backpacks. They also let you store your luggage after check out so you can make the most of your visit. I would definitely come back and stay here again when visiting Genova.

    From the turbulent city life you get to the hostel in a quiet and cozy atmosphere where friendly staff and clean, well-appointed rooms await you. Recommendable!!

    Very Good

    Wonderful people work there, I really appreciated the welcoming. They serve a 2€ breakfast that is ok for the price. The way the hostel is made, it helps meeting people, which is great. But I have to say, the staff is very friendly, but seems to live there and so, every night, they were partying /talking until like 2 in the morning. I mean it's ok, but it's a really old building and we, guests, can ear everything of what is happening downstairs. I would recommend it, but not to light sleepers.

    Very Good

    Everything was super nice about this hostel but I was extremely dissapointed in how the staff behaved. Both nights that I stayed there, they all got together talking and laughing soooo loudly just below our rooms until midnight or later. When I asked them to please quiet down, they barely changed their volume at all. I would understand this happening with guests, but the behaviour did not seem appropriate from staff members.

    It was okay, nothing special. Location was great. The rooms and lockers were really big, and the security was top notch. Bathroom was of a decent size, with a really nice shower. Unfortunately, the kitchen was out of action when I went so cant comment on that. No social aspects though, the staff made me feel a little awkward when sitting in the common room. Free coffe/juice in the mornings. Overall, a good place to stay though.
