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.

    The most homely vibes I've ever felt in a hostel, which in itself is replete with all amenities. Must recommend this to anyone staying in La Spezia. Also, Andrea is an amazing host.

    I came for three nights but eventually stayed six days, because it was so hard to leave :) this small cosy and authentic hostel is probably the best hostel experience ive had. Andrea and his team were extremely welcoming and made me feel at home. so if your'e looking for a place to stay when you come to visit the incredible views of Cinque Terra- Costello is the best option for sure!

    A really friendly host and a complementary beer was the perfect the start to a great stay. It only went uphill from there. Bravo to Andrea and Alessia for creating such a homey & beautiful hostel. 10/10.

    The staff is friendly and very helpful, the hostel is lovely, very clean, comfortable, has nice common areas to socialize (but it is not too busy or loud). The location was also great, good public transport connections to anywhere you want to go in the area. It had everything I could have asked for, I would definitely stay here again.

    I absolutely LOVED this hostel! Atmosphere like one big family. I met so many nice people and the staff is - besides helpful - really chatty and fun, and they ensure that the door to the common area is closed so it's quiet enough for people who wanna sleep early. Beds are super comfortable and the place is clean and safe. Only problem for me was : the door to my dorm is really squeecky so that woke me up all the time.

    Costello is na excellent place to stay in La Spezia and visit Cinque Terre and surroundings. It is not far from the train station and the bus stop, so it is very easy to access. It is a bit more expensive than an average hostel, but it is definitely worth it. The hole place is very clean, including the bathroom, and the owners are very receptive! It is a great place, especially if you are travelling alone! I felt very safe and welcome!

    Very friendly staff. Nice and clean. Top level bunk was extremely tall and the steps were awkward. Good location, not far from bus station.

    This is a good hostel. Unfortunately, the door to my room did not close. Good option for staying outside of Cinque Terre
