Abbey is the first born of the hostel chain 'The Hostel'. An ex convent from the 1400’s where today people meet and tell stories from all over the world.

A place that originally served a purpose for silence and prayer is today restored like a home in which people meet from all around the world. Inaugurated in March 2014, it offers accommodation for 41 guests. Dormitories, double rooms or singles plus ample common areas.

Abbey is in the historic centre of Genoa, a small distance from the Piazza Principe Railway Station and the famous Aquarium. It is two minutes (by foot) to Via Garibaldi, the street of the UNESCO heritage buildings and to all the major attractions of the city. Everything you require is close by including restaurants, cafes, supermarkets, gelato shops, information centres and all the tourist attractions.

It is the first hostel in the city with a new concept: to offer hostel prices with the comfort of a hotel. It covers the area between hostel and hotel, taking the best characteristics of both.

Prices are per person per night.
