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.

    Wow. This is by far the best hostel I've stayed at. Andrea and Alessia welcomed us into and made us feel completely at home. They went above and beyond in every possible way, going so far as inviting us to join their friends for a night out and helping us plan the rest of our stay in Italy. The hostel itself is beautiful and well located. Its a 10 minute walk to the train station, allowing for easy access to Cinque Terre.

    Really great location in La Spezia that is walking distance from the train to Cinque Terre and also near great local business and a local food market. The staff had really valuable recommendations and I would not have gone to one of my favorite nearby towns, Porto Venere, without his recommendation!

    Best hostel! It has a home like feel to it because it's quite small. The hosts are so welcoming and make sure you feel comfortable and well cared for. The kitchen is wonderful for meeting people and La Spezia is beautiful. I would come back there any time.

    I would recommend this hostel for anyone looking to discover Cinque Terre. It is located super close to the train station which is very convenient. Andrea and Alessia are lovely hosts going as far to make dinner reservations if you require. I found the layout to be a bit strange, reception is in the middle with rooms connecting off it so can be noisy. Forgo the premium price of the 4-bedder, mind was located next to the bathrooms, gets nosiy late at night and morning with hairdryer blasting etc.
