          Last April I stayed at this hostel and I had a bad experience. First, since it doesn't have any sign to identify it, it's not easy to find it. Second, the first night at the hostel, the mattress was wet. Apparently, it looked fine, but...More

          Nestled in a neighbourhood with some of the coolest examples of 50s and 60s architecture, Stolas is more home than hostel. Unlike other hostels I have stayed at, Stolas makes its guests feel more like a family. Many folks who stay here use this place...More

          It's hard to say, whether the experience is positive or negative. The hostel itself is very nice, clean, staff is helpful, breakfast delicious ect., but getting there is another story. If you look at the map and think "that's easy! I can walk there" -...More
