Property Description

Abbey is the first born of the hostel brand '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 groups, families and solo travelers.
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 centers and all the tourist attractions.

Very Good
Oct 22, 2022
The hostel is very nice overall. The rooms are in a separate building and far apart. Being a woman I didn’t feel very safe being away from the reception, it is a lottery with whom you have to share a room and there is no one to turn to in case you need help. The shared spaces are very nice but close at 10pm, which was a huge disadvantage to me. The kitchen is impeccable and very complete, with free coffee, tea and cookies.

It was a very nice stay, and the some of the staff were really nice to me! They made me feel welcome, and showed me to my room. I was in a dorm with a window out to the street - a bit loud in the day, but quiet in the night! The narrow streets are a bit shady, but I felt safe knowing that I had lots of keys! You should definitely book this stay!

Overall the hostel is good. Also, the staff was very friendly. It's just the location of the hostel. We felt it's a bit in shady area. But walkable distance from main railway station.
