Since I arrived to Manena Hostel I felt I was home, the guys were very kind and clear with the tasks and that I had to do in my shifts, the hostel is very clean and organized, my experience has been one of the bests that I’ve ever had, the location of the hostel is amazing because you have everything close and you don’t have to take public transportation to arrive to the turistic places, you can achieve them walking. Genova has a lot to offer regarding food, beautiful places beside the see and interesting activities on weekends, totally recommended!



I had a wonderful time in Manena Hostel. The team was always nice and willing to help. I would love to stay more. The hostel is very confortable and has a very nice vibe, i met a lot of wonderful people. Recommended 100%

I would recommend Manena hostel to everyone! Giulio, Paul and Manuel are very friendly, helpful and caring. I appreciated getting training on everything before starting work so there was no confusion about what I needed to do. The job is fairly easy checking in guests, giving locker keys, few computer tasks entering guest details and showing the map of Genova to the new guests to the city. The hostel is also in a prime location so it’s easy to get anywhere on your days off. I was able to visit mostly all of Genova and even France on my days off. Would love to have stayed longer!!
