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.

Obviously this is a hostel so it is not luxury but it was clean enough, the bed was fine. There was air con although it didn't work that well. There is a nice area to sit outside with people. Plenty of charging sockets in the room. Free wifi. There is a little bar there and they also serve breakfast. It... More

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.

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...

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.
