It was what we paid for. Cheap rooms in a lovely location - but not a fantastic place for a sleep. Nightclub in the courtyard until 12. Rooms are very hot and the doors don't shut or lock properly. Look around if you don't want to party. If you do want to party go nuts!

I booked in at this hostel purely because of the low price and good location, choosing to ignore the bad reviews for these reasons. However when we arrived we were surprised at how cute it was. The staff were very helpful, the courtyard is great to hang out in, and the breakfast was very filling. The bar staff blasted the... More

Our double room close to courtyard was affected by loud music in the evenings, but our kids twin room was on the front with a balcony overlooking the pedestrian street. The music did stop by 11 though. Excellent location for the Acropolis, good restaurants, shops and for getting to Syntagma for buses or metro. Good breakfast, helpful, friendly staff. Overall,...

This hostel has a good location in the Plaka district. Getting from the airport by metro and to the hostel didn't require too much walking either. We stayed in a double room and the room was small but ok. The receptionists were nice and there is also a bar on the first floor. It's not a crowded bar so we... More

The hostel has a great location and it's merely 10mins walk to National Garden or the entrance of Acropolis. There are loads of bars and restaurants nearby as well. However... Hygiene condition is very disappointing. I found other people's hair several times during the first 30mins after I stepped into my room and the floor looks like it has not... More

We stayed in this hostel and didn't have any problems. It is in an amazing location and we felt really safe in this area. The wifi wasn't the best. There's an optional breakfast available although it was quite expensive for what it was. The receptionist was very helpful and informative. Would definitely stay here again.

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

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.
