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.

    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.

    Amazing family run hostel! It really attracts respectful travellers and it results in a warm atmosphere around the hostel and clean facilities. Julia is super helpful with information on cinque Terre and will answer any questions you have. Tim is also a good lad and cooked a great lasagna one evening for the hostel’s free dinner option. Thanks guys!

    I thuroughly enjoyed my time here. The staff were knowledgeable, not just about general 5 Terre, but also about new information like which paths were closed. The family style breakfasts and dinners were delightful and helped foster a wonderful sense of community. I spent 4 nights here and wish I could spend a week! They made New Years Eve a relaxed, fun time with music, food, and friends. I would stay here again in an instance!

    This hostel was so nice! The staff were so kind and approachable, for example we casually asked one where we would be able to find somewhere we could buy a travel towel and they said they had spares that we could have! The bathroom was nice, it was clean and smelt nice and the dorm was spacious - although the bunk beds did squeak. They set up breakfast for us in the morning and let us leave our bags there after we checked out so we could walk around without them.
