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.

This hostel is great, right at the Plaka, so the location couldn't be better! Our room had a balcony overlooking the Krdathineon street, with all the restaurants and outside places. If you're travelling on a budget, this is the place to go - it ended up being around 15€ per person on a 3 person bedroom. The bathroom is not... More

We only had one afternoon & evening in Athens before catching an early flight back to the States, and the location of this hostel was ideal!! We had time to walk to the Acropolis and then catch drinks from a rooftop bar with a perfect view as the sunset. Totally appreciated all the help by the management/staff with their recommendations...

The hostel enjoys an excellent location in the city centre with many food options just around the corner. The room was decent but nothing to write home about. Aircon is a big plus given how hot Athens gets.

This place has a perfect location for Athens, sitting right between The Acropolis and Syntagma Square.The Acropolis is literally 5 minutes down the road. Plaka is full of character and alwaya bustling with people shopping and sitting in cafes. The hostel itself is bang average, typical of a hostel in a European capital. Not a bad place to stay, but...

Having stayed in many hostels, I would say this is a typical city centre hostel. It's in a great location, could not be nearer to the Acropolis and many other tourist attractions. It's located on a small, but lively street in the plaka area. It's busy, and full of other friendly travellers. Although not extremely clean it was of acceptable... More

Stay here if your on a budget friends, couples probably not the best for families. We had a very strange roomate but i guess... More

I had stayed at the Student and Travellers Inn in 2009 in a triple room with private shower and loved it. Unfortunately, when I arrived recently, I did not get the same experience. While the staff is lovely and the location cannot be beat, either the hotel messed up my reservation or mirepresented itself online. I meant to book room... More

My brother and I had a private twin room. It was small but clean. No toiletries are provided but there are towels and a hair dryer. Beds were comfortable and air conditioning was great. Staff were friendly and helpful. The best thing about it was the location, in Plaka with access to major sites (all within walking distance) and it... More

Really great hostel! The rooms are clean, the employees are nice and the location is amazing! You'll be close to everything. I would certainly recommend this place (if you're not too picky; after all, it is still an hostel!). Only negative thing: You can hear everything Through the walls.

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.
