The location is fantastic. The staff is really friendly and really helpful. The only drawback was that the room I stayed in was not very clean. Also, the curtain didn't really block out the light from outside. For for the price and the location, it is a good stay.

We stayed at the Students and Travellers inn in Plaka, Athens on our arrival in Greece. The price was affordable. The rooms were clean and depending on the room you got the size varied. The free wifi didn't connect in the rooms. The restaurant in the garden was relatively quiet considering it was a hostel, we did try the breakfast... More

This hostel had a great atmosphere, friendly staff and clean rooms. The wifi was impossible to connect to however. Pretty average for a hostel but in a nice area to walk around. Close to Syntagma square. I had a good experience but only stayed two nights.

We stayed here because the hostel we booked didn't have a room. For a place to sleep its ok but the toilets were blocked, no wifi in rooms, rooms tiny, smelled of smoke, very dated, felt like a rabbit warren. Only upside is central location, affordability, breakfast is good (although you have to pay extra). Make sure you get good... More

recommended by Athens travel guide but it was a complete let down. we arrived at 10:30am and was told that they are under staffed and we'll have to wait a couple hours. We waited 4hours without any update regarding our rooms and not offered a discount for the inconvenience. We stayed in a 4 bunk dorm which has two keys... More

This is my second time staying here, and I would definitely recommend this hostel! The rooms are very affordable, and the location is unbeatable, right in the heart of Plaka. There are plenty of restaurants and shops steps away from the hostel, and you can easily get to any main attractions in Athens from this spot. Rooms are clean and... More

This hostels location is perfect! Right in Plaka one of the oldest regains of athens right below the Acropolis. Really central and really close transport links to out of the main areas. The staff were wonderful and the rooms were really clean. Would definitely recommend to others.

This is no 5 star hostel! But it gives you exactly what you need - bed, food, hot shower, security, and it is in the perfect location for Athens. From this hostel you could easily do Athens in a day! We were very pleased with it! 8 minute walk from the bus from the airport - acropolis is 5 minute... More
