Let me preface this by saying it is a hostel - it is not a hotel or a B & B. The rooms are older, but clean. Depending on the kind of room you have you might have to share a bath with others on your floor. So - standard hostel accommodations. The best part of the place is it's... More

I went there with my sister last month. The hostel is very well-located, walk-able distance to most important sites. The street is quite busy, even at night, which is nice. We stayed in a dorm for 4, air-conditioned. The bathtub was a bit drain, apart from that everything is alright. The receptionist Cosmina is very lovely and helpful. She gave... More

I stayed at the hostel for 7 nights. At the 5th night of my stay, came a group of around 70 kids (14-15 years old) that were making a lot of noise at night-time. Also, at evening-time they gathered up in the common area - not allowing other travelers to use it. Since this is not a youth hostel I... More

The Inn is conveniently located in walking distance to most of the sights. It has a 24h reception and the staff is really helpful. Due to its central location the noise outside does not stop till well past midnight. The common area could be nicer as the outside area is lit by neon bulbs and the indoor lounge doe not... More

It is located in Plaka street. in a great location to visit tour sites. affordable price to stay. and so clean which I like the most. and the staffs were nice. I haven't tried their breakfast thou cuz it was expensive. i'd rather bought giros on the Plaka street in the morning which is cheaper than this Inn's breakfast service.

Standard hostel very well located in Plaka. You can Walk anywhere since it's very central. The staff is very helpful but the hostel itself has no atmosphere. We stayed in a double room turn into a triple room so it was a little crowded. Air con worked perfectly, the bathroom was clean and one of the mattresses very comfy. Either... More

I went with this hostel as it was in Lonely Planet's "Europe on a Shoestring" and unfortunately, I would not recommend this hostel to anyone. After my friend and I arrived last Friday morning (12/08/16) just after 7am, they were nice enough to let us have a shower even though we hadn't checked in yet. However the showers and bathrooms...

It is located on a very popular tourist street with lots of restaurants and shops. It is about a 10-15 minute walk to the acropolis. The A/C worked in the rooms which was good. There is a common patio area that makes it easy to meet other people. The bathrooms and showers were very poorly maintained, however.

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.
