  • Description


    This is a tiny independent hostel with a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. We started in 2012 so we feel like quite experienced guys, but still excited and happy with our job. We love to chat with our guests, talking about our city, travels and the things of life. We really like people to have a great time here, our goal is to show to everyone the beauties of Genova and make him feel at home. The best part of this job is definitely dealing with travellers from all around the world and become a little piece of their lives.

    Genova is such an underrated city. Our goal is to promote its beauties, 'cause this is the city we love and where we were born. Most of the travellers don't know what to expect when before coming here, that's why we lke to say that it's easy to get surprised.
    Our hostel is amazingly located in the historical center, a Unesco site, which is a true italian gem. It will be our pleasure to introduce you to everything that makes Genova special and different from any other european city! :)
