    Great, affordable, clean accommodation right in the heart of Old Town. Roof bar under the Acropolis is epic and staff super friendly and knowledgable. Cleaner than most hostels I've stayed in Europe. Definitely rate this place!

    Named after the well-preserved Thission
    (ancient temple of Hephaestus), Thissio is
    blessed with a small wooded park and some
    less frenetic streets that offer numerous
    quieter places to stay and eat. Largely
    pedestrianized Apostolou Pavlou Street
    runs between the Acropolis and forested
