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...

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...

Helpful staff, clean, spacious, good showers ! Its the only hostel in Genova and the cheapest place to stay by far. So you don't realty have any other options. Love/Hate location amazing view, nice and quiet but 30min bus ride away from the town. At first it feels like a hospital but it's simple and clean. No kitchen facilities.

I wanted to like this hostel more. The lock-out hours only apply to the bedrooms, not to the lounge to check (free) email and eat. The lounge has an electric water kettle, microwave, and 6 vending machines. However, the location is really inconvenient and Genova's bus system sucks. That was a downer! On the bright side, the bus is direct...
