Property Description

Welcome to our family hostel! We are Giulia and Cesare, two siblings with a passion for Italian hospitality. We believe that immersing yourself in cultures is the best way to travel; our mission as locals is to give you all the tools you need to have fun, make friends and experience the best of our incredible region.

Both of us travel a lot and stay in hostels. That is why we built a homely-feeling place with all modern facilities a globe trotter needs - from social spaces, comfortable rooms and all the best advice we have from our years living the good life here in Liguria.

La Spezia is strategically located: you can easily reach 5 Terre within few minutes by train, small nice villages on the seaside and beaches (such as Portovenere, Lerici; Tellaro) in 20 min by bus; also Pisa and Genova can be visited in a one day trip ( it takes between 1/1’30 h to get there by train) and Florence is about 2,5 hours by train. The hostel is in the heart of the city, walking distance from the train station (10 minutes), the harbour (5 minutes), supermarket, restaurants and pubs.

    Thank you very much Giulia for the welcome and your recommendations! My short stay was excellent, to emphasize the cleanliness and the ideal location in the center of the city.

    Very cozy and clean place, it makes you feel like you're at home! Giulia is a fantastic hostess, always giving you tips about the best places in town and helping with whatever need you might have! The fact she can speak fluent English, Spanish and a little bit of French, apart from Italian, is also a big plus! I'll highly recommend the place to my friends. ;)

    A great location right near the port, with friendly and welcoming staff who were always happy to help and give advice. The rooms were clean and comfy, and we even had a little balcony in ours! Also enjoyed the fact that you could actually sit up on the bottom bunk which is a nice change from normal!

    Best hostel ever, the atmosphere and location of this magnificent place is surreal. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. They even let us place our bags after checkout in a locker so we could explore the city without the hassle of carrying our bags. Best hostel in Florence. By far.

    I'm in love with this hostel, everything was perfect during my stay. location is great, a few minutes walking from the train station. Close by supermarket and many restaurants/bars around. Beds are confortable, room super bright and clean, also air conditioners on the room and social area. Bathroom clean and spacious. The staff was always available to give advices about the city. The breakfast is included. Best option to visit Cinque Terre

    What a wonderful hostel! Is my second time here and would definetely be back soon. I was a bit worried that the restrictions for Covid were changing the vibe of the place, but the owner - Giulia - made a big effort to make sure eveything is 'safe&clean' but with the same hospitality she had previously! I travelled alone, and really enjoyed the fact she came over her way to make me feel comfrotable and socialize with other travellers staying in La Spezia.

    Unfortunately I could only stay one night. Great place to be, clean and with a good vibe. And that even in times of Corona: well done!

    The staff here are so lovely and accommodating. Very friendly and helpful with advice. The free breakfast is wonderful. The place is spotlessly clean. The place was quite quiet when I was there but I am sure it gets more lively in busier times. There wasn’t a huge amount of communal space to hang out in apart from the kitchen and the reception area but these areas were lovely.

    This is a nice hostel. It‘s pretty small but has everything you need and the dorm we were in was spacious. Location is great! Getting in and out at night is sort of complicated and while everything worked out fine, instructions could have been clearer sometimes.
