We stayed at this youth hostel for two nights in April 2015. We rented two private rooms, one for two people and one for three people. Each private room had a private bathroom with shower. The location and price for this hostel are great. We were also happy with the cleanliness of the simple rooms. Fresh paint, clean linens, tidy... More

Situated around 400 meters from the Acropolis and inside the Plaka district, The Student & Travellers Inn is a perfect option for backpackers travelling in Greece. The hotel is opened 24 hours and the connection from Syntagma square (metro station and the final stop from the Airport Bus) is very convenient.

I really enjoyed staying here! I would most definitely go back. Location: The Plaka is the historical/tourist district, lots of great restaurants and shops (and all of the ruins/museums for the most part). The hostel is in this area and is close to the Parthenon (maybe a few minutes' walk) as well as multiple other famous locations. You can walk... More

this hotel is clean, with comfortable beds and good heater and most importantly, has the best location in Plaka. everything was within walking distance. the staffs were also very friendly. but the common area seemed a bit dead cuz nobody was there. i suppose thats not a big deal at all.

This inn was perfect for my friends and I. We got a four-bed room with private bath. It was clean and you could see the Acropolis from our window. Awesome location right in the middle of restaurants, shopping and attractions. The girl at the counter was super friendly and helpful. Price was great.

This hostel lays in a great shopping and restaurant area. The staff is always helpful and nice, they sorted out the problems we had and gave some good advice on restaurants and sights. On the other hand, the drawbacks were that the room was cold during the night (and the A/C system didn't have a 'hot' mode) and that the... More

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

Staying in Plaka

Neighborhood Profile
Due to its proximity to the Acropolis, Plaka remains the area where the majority of foreign visitors stay and play. Its attractive features include small squares, some notable museums and the beautiful Mitropolis cathedral, as well as a host of places to stay, eat and drink. Its pedestrian zones make it a pleasant place to escape from the city’s notorious traffic. Adrianou and Kidathineon Streets contain a number of souvenir shops, offering classier items than you will find in the Flea Market. The most rewarding section to explore is the upper reaches towards the Acropolis itself, where many old stone houses with tiled roofs have survived. Up here you can find leafier corners and the odd quaint taverna with unobstructed views of the ancient rock.
