Reviewed 12 July 2014 via mobile

Have been backpacking around Europe for a few months now, and this is one of the best hostels I've come across! The staff were so nice and friendly, helping you with whatever you need. It's in a great location, has good facilities (kitchen is really nice and bathrooms are good too). Would definitely recommend!

I wholly recommend this hostel without reservation. Across America, Asia, and Europe, this is one of the best hostels I have stayed at. Very personable and genuinely helpful staff, fast internet connection and convenient outlets, great beds and common area, free guided tours of the city/food/gelato/history/culture, and most importantly the people I've met there were great.
Only downside is that for a first-time Genoa goer, it is difficult to find among Genoa's winding alleys. Asking many locals for directions was needed for me.
Again I wholly recommend this hostel and place it among one of the best hostels I have ever been.

Hostel is in the heart of Geneve, close to all attractions and tourist spots. Hostel is clean, in quite area and with WiFi available. Staff is nice, very helpful and willing to explain everything you need to know about Geneve.
If arriving with public transport, follow the instructions written on the hostel website, as street names are very similar and easy to miss the one where hostel is situated.

The Hostel is located 10 meters away from one of the main streets in Genoa (Via Garibaldi), this makes the location really good in order to walk around the old center of the city and even to go out at night.

The hostel has very good facilities and a very friendly environment, we were staying there for 2 days in June and we really met a lot of backpackers from all over the world. The only problem i found is the noise during the night coming from the people in the hostal and coming form the street (as it is a very popular street).

For the rest i will say our stay was really nice and fun as the staff is very helpful, we didn't got the chance to do the walking tour and the bar hoping offered by the hostel but the other travellers we talked to found them really worth it.

I enjoyed very much my stay in Manena Hostel. Location is perfect, just a minute away from the Via Garibaldi. Staff very helpful indeed. Their tips about where to go and what to do were priceless. Also, their free city tour was very instructive, showing all those hidden gems that only a local knows about. The whole experience was perfect! :-)

My first hostel experience was here and it was great. The staff is friendly and helpful, the location is as good as it can get and it seems to attract like-minded travelers. Considering the price, there is no better value. If you are planning to stay at a hostel in Genova, Italy, then you must stay here.
