    Really lovely and kind staff, great location though a bit hard to find at first. Its in an old Abbey (think monks) so it has a sort of...feeling from that? Full kitchen, bunk beds. Literally next to the university

    I came to visit some friend in Genoa and for a football game, so the location is fantastic despite it is difficult to see it at the beginning if you don't pay attention to Google Maps. Clean, secure and friendly. Fantastic.

    The hostel was nice and clean, the staff was gentle and helpful. The breakfast was really good for the price (€ 3,50) with coffee, milk, fruit, cereals, cookies, jam, etc. The lockers were included in the price, you can take with you your keys. I would definitely recommend this hostel. The only "problem" I had was that Google Maps sent me by a street a bit scary. I would recommend going through Via Garibaldi.

    The hostel was very nice and clean, well located and the staff was always helpful. The breakfast is satisfying with a fair price. The room was really clean and tidy. And on Saturday night they have a wine party which was superb, with good wine and nice food. I would definitely recommend this hostel.

    This place is very cute and homey. It feels like someone’s home. The bed was super comfy and the common area is cozy. When I was there it was off season so not many guests around. Staff were very friendly but overall social aspect wasn’t there for me. The location is in a kind of sketchy area but if you just stay away from the street below it, it was fine! The streets above and closer to old city are more safe.

    I got there at night and it’s location is a bit odd. My GPS lead me down a dark secluded ally to get there which is why a took off points for location because it is secluded. However it is very close to the aquarium and other attractions. Staff were okay, not overly friendly and not mean. Just base level nice and helpful. The experience here was not bad but also was not good. Hard to explain why. But if you need a cheap place to stay this is it.

    Stayed here for one night due to a emergency. Good enough place if you are looking for No frills stay. What I loved is that the room had normal beds instead of inconvenient bunk beds which is rare for hostels today.
