I stayed at this hostel with my fiancé on our first trip abroad together. It was perfect! We were able to walk to all the sights we wanted to see and the bus stop to transfer to the airport was less than a 5 minute walk away. It is worth mentioning that this hostel can be slightly hard to find.... More

Yes, I'm a tourist so it's normal I'm going to ask you questions such as where can I take the bus for the airport, and I expect you not to be annoyed and to answer "just go there in the square" (Syntagma sq is huge, by the way). Or another example: a person who arrived at the same time as... More

Title says it all: wonderful location right near all the major sights and in a cute neighbourhood, and the staff were very helpful and friendly. Only downside: bathroom had mould in the shower, but at the water was hot, and pressure good! Would definitely stay again

The staff were awesome at the front desk, really informative and helpful, right next to all the restaurants, shops/market, attractions, the rooms for a private was big and we were told we had the quietest room.... However, It was really noisy due to the bar downstairs (this stops though after 2ish I think), the beds were the most uncomfortable I've... More

I stayed there for two nights with my boyfriend and some friends. Staff was really friendly and helpful. Our room was really clean and had air conditioner. But what we liked the most is its location. It is located in the heart of Plaka, very close to the Parthenon and other attractions. I would definitely stay there again.

Stayed here for one night. It's less than a 5 minute walk from the X95 bus that comes from the airport. The hostel is easy to find, located on a very touristy street in Plaka. Very good location close to the Acropolis, National Garden, Benaki Museum, etc. At check-in, I was given a map and some very helpful tips for... More

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

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.
