WHY SHOULD YOU PICK
A HOSTEL?
This is a unique opportunity to sleep inside a true landmark right in the heart of Genoa, whose spaces of historical value lead back to art Deco and industrial environments of the 20s and 30s.

A hostel is not only a meeting place for those who are passionate about traveling: it is also a great opportunity to socialize and share spaces with people from all over the world, as well as a great reference point for families, students and workers on business trips in Genoa.

The Marathon Hostel offers all the best of the hostel experience: togetherness, cost-effectiveness, sport activities, a central location and different cultures, without having to give up on comfort and on the warmth of an intimate environment.

It is a state-of-the-art accommodation facility, which provides all services and is located just a few steps away from the city’s main attractions. There are not only 160 sleeping accommodations (in rooms for 2 to 6 people), which are distributed over 5 floors; but also an exclusive pub with Europe’s longest monumental bar counter, a gym, which is also available for guests, and several shared spaces.

DISCOVERING AND FALLING IN LOVE WITH THE CITY!

“Proud for its men and for its walls”, as it was defined by poet Petrarch. A city of port, full of flavors, rich in traditions and artistic beauties.
WE ARE A BIG FAMILY
AND WE SHARE THE SAME IDEAS

Strolling by the seventeenth-century walls right below Corso Andrea Podestà, you may come across the road following the ancient route that connected the business center with the residential district on the hill of Carignano: Via degli Archi is just a few steps from the frenetic flow of daily life in Via XX Settembre.

Here, you can jump into the modern Genova, with the atmosphere of other major European cities. This is the ideal atmosphere for young people, which doesn’t give up on the values of tradition. We took a bet on the future of the city, and on creating new opportunities. The hostel is in the center of the city, right in the ancient Via degli Archi, and is literally inside a city landmark, within one of Genoa’s most representative architectural urban works: the Monumental Bridge. Its arches host the exclusive and brand new built Marathon Hostel.

The location is strategic to discover the city, which is rich in wonders, history and tradition.
The shopping street is accessible from the hostel through a staircase, which also leads right to the main square of Genoa, Piazza De Ferrari, where the Palazzo dei Dogi and the magnificent Opera House are located.

De Ferrari is also the main gateway to the historic center of Genoa, considered the largest one in Europe, and included in the Unesco World Heritage List in 2006.

Embedded between the hills and the sea, you can wander around the maze of narrow streets (called carruggi), discover hidden corners and breathe the scent of the sea. 

FALL IN LOVE WITH THE GREAT MARITIME REPUBLIC, WITH ITS MAZE OF CARRUGGI.

The Marathon Hostel was created to facilitate tourism and tourists, and can be a reference point for your trip.
A young, dynamic environment with high-level services that make use of the smartest technologies. The welcoming program is rich and unique, not limited to mere hospitality.
