I spent 1 nights there. The only prblem is distance to the center of Genova about hotel is about 25 minutes by bus. They don't have internet in the rooms, but the comon area is quite cosy. It was nice, clean and beautifull views for port and city.

I found that this hostel was one of the only cheap accommodation options in Genova, and it was recommended by Lonely Planet. From the train station, it is quite a hike, even to the bus stop (I walked up to the #40 bus stop because I didn’t want to waste time with transfers - you can take the #35 bus... More

It was nice, clean and the location is really good. The only prblem is that they don't have internet in the rooms, but the comon area is quite cosy. I spent 2 nights there. They also offer a cheap breakfast that is really nice.

Clean, cheap, wi-fi connection only in the first floor. Far away from the city center, only reachable by bus (like 20min I think). Enough for one night with friends. The hostel has a great view for the port.

Great place to stay if on a budget. The dorms are cheap, the bathrooms ok, you pay for what you get. Although it is located a little outside of thecity centre, the terrace offers a beautiful view of the city, gorgeous when lit up at night. It is also easy to get to by bus, under half an hour to...

The hostel is good but far from the center. You always have to take bus 40 or bus 640 after 9 pm. The rooms are normally for 8 persons but there are also rooms for 4 persons. Breakfast is 2 euro. There are big free lockers outside every room.

Prison - this is the word to describe this horrible, rude, place. You have to take a bus from the city centre to get there as it is about 900m above the city centre along a winding road. It would take you hours to walk. You can, however, walk down from the hostel (providing you don't get lost in the... More

N.B. This hotel is also known as Ostello Per La Gioventu Genova, and Youth Hostel Genova. Tripadvisor has it listed under TWO seperate hostels, this one, and also 'Genoa Youth Hostel'. THEY ARE THE SAME PLACE. I have put this review up on both to avoid confusion. The hostel being the only "affordable" place we could find that did not... More

The youth hostel has good beds. It is maintained and run well. No air conditioning in the rooms, so it can be quite hot. The atmosphere is office-like, and the dining-room not really comfortable to sit. The large terrace is, though, in the evenings. Walking uphill is tough, but the bus connection is very good. All in all worth it.
