    This hostel might not win with its location but the staff made up for it! Very friendly and helpful with every issue that appeared. If you are searching for a cheap hostel in a quiet area then the YHA in Genova is your place to go to. If you are searching for a place to meet many people and party hard, this hostel won't fulfill your demands as the last bus from town departures at ~1am and the doors close at 2am. But for day trips there is a frequent bus connection into the city.

    The location of the hostel is both great and horrible. It’s high location on the mountain provides an awesome view, but can be a pain in the ass to reach. There is a bus that will take you all the way up and down though. The hostel itself is pretty basic, but it works. I believe it’s in an old school, so it can feel more like a hotel with dorm rooms at times. I would recommend, but it’ll be hit or miss with there ring any atmosphere whatsoever.

    This hostel is sooo far away it’s like the middle of nowhere. About 20 mins by bus. There wasn’t really any atmosphere so not ideal for a solo traveler. Literally nothing to eat after 10.30pm unless you make the trek back to the city but then buses end around 12 to go back up to the hostel. The best part about the hostel was the view! There is a terrace that overlooks all of Genova and is really nice !

    The only perk is that the hostel has a great view over the city with a good outdoor area to enjoy a drink in the evening. Other than that the Hostel doesn't offer any redeeming qualities. - Too far from the city (45 minute walk straight up hill from the trainstation) - No food service with no restaurants near by - Distance from city combined with curfew forces you to end your night earlier than you'd like - No real suggestions or tips from the staff on what to do

    The hostel is located quite far away from the center of Genova. I recommend taking the bus. The staff were friendly, but the facilities look like an old institution of some kind. Toaletts and showers are located seperately. The showers are small booths with little space to store clothes without them getting wet.

    Really great staff and fairly tidy rooms, nothing to complain about there. But no kitchen to have access to and no washing facilities was a bit of a bummer. Clothes can be washed down the hill but it’s a long walk and you have to leave them for hours
