Property Description


Housed in a charming 1800s building in the heart of La Spezia, Costello is built to suit the traveler’s needs, with a mix of homely feel and ultimate comfort. In our brand new hostel you will find four rooms for up to 24 guests: a small environment for a first class experience.
More than just a hostel, Costello is the perfect place to call home during your stay in our amazing places. Andrea and Alessia will be more than happy to welcome you!

Stay, Socialize, Experience: that's our motto.

At Costello, we want you to feel the most comfortable. The fully equipped kitchen and the neat bathrooms will guarantee a highly comfortable stay. Coffee, tea and drinking water dispensers are always at your disposal, as well as a set of essential kitchen tools. Last but not least, the terrace: that is the perfect place to chill after a long day out.

Costello wants to sparkle interaction among travelers, encouraging socialization and new friendships. The kitchen and terrace next to it are the places where our guests share most of their time with others. Also, you will love laying in the hammocks while reading a book!

We believe this is what matters the most. There's no tell, just come and experience it!
We are two siblings, Andrea and Alessia. We love our area and are keen to provide you with any tip you need. Andrea loves hiking and adventuring too, so feel free to ask him for suggestions.
Andrea quit his managerial career to start his own business and create his “joyful space for travelers”. He ensures he has great local tips for your stay! ; Alessia is an architect and she’s the brain behind the project Costello.

Costello is within walking distance from the train station, the bus station and the ferry terminal.
We are just steps away from the city’s street market (Piazza del Mercato) and from an array of bars, bakeries and restaurants. In addition, a supermarket is open until 12am.

Each bed comes equipped with a memory-foam mattress that will make you sleep highly comfortably.
You will also find a personal USB port and a lamp. There is air conditioning in every room.
The well-designed bathrooms offer hairdryers and private spaces with toilets and showers.
Interesting books are always available from the shelves. Iron is available as well.

We only ask you to free your bed by 11 but don’t mind staying at the hostel as long as you need during your check-out day.

    What a magical experience I had at this hostel. I was initially supposed to stay only 2 nights and I ended up staying for 8. I have created some of the best memories here and I’m eternally grateful for the long lasting friendships. Can’t wait to see my Costello family again soon 😘

    I had the most amazing stay at Costello! The atmosphere and the people were incredible, and the staff was very kind and helpful. The location of the hostel is good and it is very easy to get to Cinque Terre from there. The beds were comfortable, the rooms were nice and clean and the common area was cozy and chill. I really felt at home. I would definitely recommend staying at Costello's and I will definitely come back.

    Wow I had such an incredible time here. Was meant to stay only a couple nights but ended up staying six. There’s nothing bad to say about the hostel, met loads of great people, I loved the atmosphere on the terrace every evening. Kitchen great, bathrooms great and Alessia and Andrea who own the hostel made everyone feel at home and were extremely helpful in explaining the best things to do in the area. One day I will return just to see them! This is one of the best hostels I’ve stayed in.

    Small hostel well located in town centre, walking distance to station and waterfront. Personable hosts take an interest to get to know guests, giving plenty of info on getting around, places to eat etc. Bunks beds are two or three high, each with own light, socket and curtain. Kitchen has terrace outside to eat or smoke or just relax in a hammock. Wifi patchy in rooms, but otherwise very good stay. A bit expensive for dorm beds, shame they don't have any private rooms.
