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”; 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.
Are you staying over 4 nights? Then use our FREE WASHING MACHINE service.

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.

Digital Nomads, Globetrotters, Cyclists, Artists are always very welcome at Costello.

    What a great place! Andreas and the staff are incredible! The beds are comfy, the bathrooms, dorms & kitchen are clean. The location is amazing so close to all bus and only a 5-10min was to the central train. The best part is the patio, it is what you see in the pictures and more. Great place to meet ppl especially as a solo traveller. Andreas helped me with the hikes provided info on better ones and more. Recommend! I would stay again in a heartbeat. Thank you for the hospitality!

    Best hostel I’ve ever stayed at! The atmosphere is fantastic, the hosts are super welcoming and really want to make sure that you enjoy every moment of your stay. All the facilities are very clean and modern. The hostel is close to the train station and several bus stops, which is great for day trips to the surrounding area. Will definitely stay here again!

    Such a cute little hostel right in the heart of La Spezia- a 12 minute walk from the station, and a 7 minute walk to the port! The service was wonderful, accommodations clean, and hosts super helpful. I would definitely recommend and stay there again myself!

    The hostel was really nice, the facilities were great and the atmosphere was great. Staff/owners were super friendly and the created a very good hostel where you feel safe and comfortable. The bathrooms could use a little more cleaning but that's all.
