Welcome to our hostel

The modern Genoa Hostel is located on a scenic hilltop spot in Genoa, a region of Liguria, overlooking the sea. It provides panoramic views of Genoa and is close to the abundance of sights this beautiful city has to offer.
A clean, friendly and safe hostel, it offers free Wi-Fi and Internet access, a café/bar, a large terrace, free private car parking and a meeting room which can accommodate up to 50 people.
Take a 2 hour city tour then take the chance to visit the Aquarium of Genoa, one of the biggest aquariums in Europe. Alternatively set aside a day and head to the beaches in Nervi, which has a charming and secluded setting, or take a 30 minute drive through the mountainous countryside to Santa Margherita and wade through the clear blue sea of the Mediterranean.

For internal rules, people with residence in Genoa can not stay at the Hostel in Genoa.

Tourists without the membership card will have to buy it directly in the hostel (5 €/person for Italian people and 2 €/person per day until the sixth day for foreign people)

Das Ding steht mitten aufm Berg. Man muss verdammt viele Serpentinen überwinden, überleben. Da fahren Busse - das glaubt man nicht! Generell sind die Italiener da vor Ort total schmerzbefreit, insbesondere die Roller-Fahrer. An denen fährt das Leben vorbei. Doch die Aussicht ist phänomenal! In Ruhe den Angst- und Todesschweiß trocknen lassen. Modern?! Nein. Wir haben uns gefragt, ob das Ding eine ehemalige Kaserne oder Schule ist. Sauberkeit? Nein. Duschen - unschön. Besorgt euch Badepantinen.

The hostel is conveniently located at the terminus of bus 40 (becomes bus 640 at night). The private parking is a plus. You can get a free lock for a EUR 5 caution is yours is too thin to fill in the locking mechanism.

A big, empty feeling hostel. It's a long way from Genoa town. The views are fantastic, and there's something about the space that I love - it's big, open and expansive. A good place to think, write.

the day when I checked in, the person at the reception was friendly, providing all the information we needed very kindly. The person at the reception on the next day when I checked out was very unfriendly, unlikely to any youth hostel, leaving an impression he did not want to talk to people and don't want to be bothered. Almost all the locker was broken so we could not use.
