OStellin Genova - Hostel
Ranked #2 of 66 Speciality Lodging in Genoa
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 August 2014

OStellin is by far the best hostel I have stayed at recently, and I say this as a fellow hostel owner. Everything about this hostel is great: the rooms, the location, the vibe... and most of all, the staff. Betta and Matteo are wonderful people and they made my stay (5 nights instead of the 1 originally planned) unforgettable. Whenever I come back to Genova I will stay here for sure.

Only stopped here for one night but was very happy with my stay. The lady that owns it met me on the desk, offered me a drink before anything which was nice! tad tricky to find but after asking a cab driver was on my way! The room and facilities were perfect and better than expected, strongly recommend

Room Tip: When coming from the airport get off at the stop before the piazza and the hostel will be in front o...

One of the best hostels I have stayed in!
Set in an old historical building with beautiful ceilings the owners have managed to create a clean, modern hostel with everything you could want.
The dorms are clean and spacious. Reading lights and sockets on every bed (including top bunks). There was sufficient showers and toilets, and never had to wait.
The best aspect of this hostel however was the staff! Genuinely friendly and caring. Extra effort was put in to make sure you had a great time.
Thanks for the great stay!

Central location

Beautiful building

Incredible design and attention to detail

But, most importantly, a beautifully warm atmosphere generated by the world's loveliest couple who run it!

CANNOT RECOMMEND IT HIGHLY ENOUGH.

Friendly staff, 24 hours a day there. It's a relatively new and very clean establishment.
We had trouble finding a good hostel for our next destination, so they helped us finding one. Extremely patient and helpful.
I strongly recommend staying there. I would any time!
