A modest apartment is set up to welcome backpackers from around the world in a clean and pleasant environment. Situated near the city center (5' bus ride) and the water-front (7' on foot) is well More connected to the Train Station, Bus Station and the Airport. Backpacker’s Refuge is probably the best place for travelers to meet in Thessaloniki. Please contact the management prior to your arrival since the staff is not present around the clock. Less
