    The hostel is situated in a wonderful place. It is on the hill and you have an amazing view and a beautiful terrace. Room is clean, and we were all girls on the room.

    Really clean and peaceful place. On the hill, but not far from city center. İ had bed bug issue, despite it was a super clean place.

    Good hostel with a big kitchen and common area plus a nice outdoor area. Only stayed one night but found the hostel really nice. Comfy and clean rooms, big lockers for storage and plenty of showers. Wasn’t very social the night I stayed. Breakfast is very good, and the staff were super friendly and helpful. Only downside to this hostel is the location - it’s about a 20 minute uphill walk from the station, including heaps of stairs which isn’t ideal with luggage. Arrived very hot and sweaty!

    Nice looking hostel with a good atmosphere. Most of the staff were nice and helpful. Located a bit far from the center on a steep hill, so it was pretty annoying climbing it. Overall i had a good experience there.

    Lovely hostel building, large and very well equipped kitchen with a nice dining area and a little outside patio as well,easy to socialise(BYOB) Rooms were clean and secure, got v. hot though- not sure the aircon worked Rm 50* -Some of the doors and bathroom were also difficult to open and close. Quite a climb to reach but enjoyed spending a few evenings here. Not nicest local area,especially when it's dark, but had no problems. If I were to go to Genoa again(unlikely), I'd consider here

    Very Good

    The hostel is really nice,clean and the front desk staff when we checked in and checked out were very friendly and informative! Unfortunately we found bedbugs on more than one bed. Didn’t know what to do, called the only number we could find and got told nothing they could do. Hung up on me. Eventually got a new room which was clean and no problems. Other than that situation a very nice place and other than the one lady (who we obvs woke up but what else could we do?) the staff was great.

    Few notes 1) 2nd floor shower doors ( both inside ones) can’t be locked . 2) 2nd floor , shower holder at the left shower kept coming off . 3) 2nd floor toilet lights don’t work 4) I noticed some red drops on the white bed sheet . Pretty disturbing Good stuff The host were very friendly and the place felt secure inside . The neighbor felt a bit dodgy with graffiti .

    Everything was fine before we went to bed, but when we woke up we had bed bug bites and one of us found a dead bed bug near our pillow.
