I didn't stay here, but another hostel recommended this free walking tour. Spyros, from the Greek island of Rhodes, moved to Genoa and you can tell why he fell in love with the city. With his infectious energy, knowledge and sense of humor, he made this walking tour a

Hi Alex, All in all you appreciated your stay here and we're happy for this, but some points of your review sound like mistery to me. Since february lots of guests have passed by and I can't even remind your face or last name, but I assume you get a bit offended because someone of our staff - a hostess you say? Are you serious?!? - told you were late. Interesting fact you didn't write what time was, but if she told you were 5 (!) hours late and check in time terminates at 10pm, it had to be aprox. 2 or 3am! I guess everything else you wrote is just the result of being reproached by our colleague for this. Didn't you think even for a second she could be right? Regards, Giulio Talamanca Manena Hostel Manager
