Been there for a few days, sharing a big room with friends and that's ok. 3 bathrooms plus a washbasin room in the corridor within...50 people? Mainly clean (room is not clean - got dust 'cats' under by bed ). Ther funny stuff was some underwear abandoned for days to dry. In the kitchen it is well written "food found without a name and room number will be throwen away" but nothing mentioned for the clothing. Perfect central position, I would recomment it. Breakfast is provided, you just have to prepare it and wash your dishes. And many people don't understand that the wooden 'tray' close to the sink is a chopping board, and not a place where to let dry the cleaned stuff. Curious. Other curious fact is that not all the people working there speak Italian. Is it Italy?

Dear guest, thx for your review, the hostel is cleaned everyday by our cleaning lady. We have 25 beds not 50. In a youth hostel is normal to speak English, to have an international staff is a plus (we hope). Things left in a bathroom? For one day maybe.. Please come back anyway, we'll do better.

(1) LOCATION: you're right near the row of Palaces. (2) CLEAN: toilets & showers. (3) BREAKFAST: go for 2nds! Cocoa Puffs & milk. (4) MAP provided. (-) Night Staff guy w/glasses: got angry @ me for pressing the buzzer for 4 sec. You can't hear it ring, so lighten up. (-) Night Staff guy BLASTS the movie that he watches in the office. It's so loud that the lounge area vibrates. (-) NOT easy to find. From the station it's about 7 left turns and 11 right turns. Mess up on any of those turns and you're back at the station.

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 stand-out. I've been on about 10 walking tours over the last 3 years in South America and Italy, and this one was one of the best. If you're in Genoa, be sure to carve out a few hours for this walking tour with Spyros.

So I didn’t get to stay at this hotel (but if I come back I’ll definitely come here!) but I was able to join their free walking tour! Only walking tour offered in Genova. The guide, Spyros, is amazing, funny, and super informative throughout this 3+ hr tour! Hands down best walking tour I’ve ever been on (and I’ve been on quite a few), so thanks again !! Recommend it to those staying at the hostel and to those who enjoy walking tours !! :)
