A very friendly owner, nice rooms and bathrooms. It takes about half an hour to Genova and to the 'riviera' (see), which is wonderful! Rapallo, Portofino, the Cinque terre are just some of the incredibly nice places we went to! We had a real good time, thank you!

We have a hostel down on the plain near the river Po and decide to combine a little benchmarking with a one night/two day trip to the seaside to celebrate our 31st wedding anniversary. We knew the hostel was inland, some 25 km from the coast, but we had a car and know the area well. The hostel is spacious,... More

We stayed here for 2 nights over easter as it was the only moderately priced accommodation we could find in the Portofino and Cinque Terre areas. Having said that it was not particulary close to either of these areas and a car is an absolute must. Our dorm room was fine and standard for a hostel. Unfortunately a large noisy... More

Thank you for everything!!! We had a very good time in this hostel. Actually it was more a hotel than a hostel. We could choose between 2-5 bed dorms. So you´ve got your privacy. It is very clean and friendly. The owner offers drinks (water, coffee) for low prices (less than 1 euro). We also met a lot of people... More
