The location is the best aspect of the hostel. It is near the bus that goes to the airport, near to restaurants and to some touristic points. They don't offer breakfast (for free), but you can buy inside between 3-5 euros. Some negative aspects: the wifi wasn't working, the air conditioning was to cold, we couldn't adjust. The reception were... More

We arrived late night around 1:30 am and we still can check in. The reception guy was nice. We went to our double bed private room and everything seemed ok. The room is small but it had a sink and workable air conditioner. At first I was quite satisfied with this room. But later I found myself wrong. The bed... More

My sister and I stayed two nights at this hostel. Having read glowing reviews of this establishment, I was pleased to have been able to secure a booking. Apart from the location, though, there was nothing special about it. Management was bland; uninterested in clients. The room was comfortable enough, but the bathroom door was broken. Did not have wi-fi... More

This hostel is located in the heart of the touristic part of Athens so it is very easy to find a good restaurant or some shopping nearby. However, the wifi and the air conditioning did not work while we were there. We could connect to the internet but it was too slow to load anything and the only time it... More

The rooms are clean, the staff is helpful and the location is great. If your are travelling on a budget I would definitely recommend this hostel. You get what you pay for. The wifi isn't great and the walls are quite thin, but if your not planning to spend a lot of time in your room it's not a problem.

Where to start.... The internet NEVER worked - literally never, not even when we supposedly had full bars of service. And it definitely didn't reach to the rooms. The room was musty, dirty, and seemed to be bipolar in terms of temperature - I would go to bed hot and wake up freezing in the middle of the night. The... More

I really loved my stay in here. The room was nice and big, with individual beds instead of bunk beds which I found really nice. The Wi-Fi worked well in my room and I had not trouble at all. The location is great, it is nearby the attractions, and it's in a shopping street which is really nice just to... More

Staff seemed distracted. Took a while to check us in, and had not booked the ferry tickets we requested even though they had said via email that tbey could do this. Room was bright and clean enough though small and could use more hooks and hangers. No furniture on our balcony. Toilet door would not shut, something I could have... More

This hostel has the best location in Athens which is less than 10 minutes walking from Acropolis and close to lots of nice places to visit. It is located in Plaka but if you want to spend a little less to eat and drink you can easily reach Monasteraki and enjoy awesome grrek food. The people in reception are very... More

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

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.
