Pros: garden to sit out and socialize in, location right in Plaka Cons: Greeted by a surly staff member who couldn't find our reservation for 15 minutes even though we had a confirmation printed out. When I asked to rent a towel he said that they don't have any after 6 am, but then found a stained towel to give... More

-the ac for the room was broken. The reception told us to flip a breaker switch, which we did and it began to lightly blow very hot air. After telling the front desk this they didn't care. They said there's no way it was broken but would not come to the room. - because the ac was broken, we tried... More

This hostel was affordable, and the staff was very friendly! The location was perfect as it was within walking distance of a lot of the main sights in Athens, and was close to the bus stop that brings you to/from the airport, as well as the train station. The shared bathrooms were okay, and the rooms were a bit small,... More

Nice atmosphere with younger people looking to meet other travelers. Outside courtyard for night hanging out or breakfast in the morning. Lots of trips and tours offered. Knowledgeable, friendly, English-speaking staff. Cons: The... More

We were 4 friends who rent a private room for 4 with a private bathroom and we really liked the place! The location was perfect (right next to Plaka and it's a 5 minutes walk to the Parthenon), the room was nice, even though the bathroom had a little mildew problem but nothing unbearable. The balcony had a great view... More

I stayed several nights in private room in this youth hostel and I really liked it! The location is really good in the old city and near good restaurants. The receptionists were king and the room clean with a particularly lovely decoration.

The hostel is located on a lovely street with plenty of shops and restaurants with a lovely vibe at the bse of the Acropolis. The... More

Very bad and unpleasant experience with this horrible hostel! The receptionists that are during the day are extremely rude and arrogant! Most of the personnel consists of romanian people and some of them especially the women are very rude. Even the chief of the hostel is rude and arrogant! They dont care at all about their clients or their satisfaction... More

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

Staying in Plaka

Neighborhood Profile
Plaka
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.
