Budget accommodation for a solo traveller


I am in Rhodes for a few days in September and am looking for a budget place to sleep. I don't plan to be there much. I thought the was a hostel but can't find the details anymore.

There was a hostel in the Old Town many years ago but not sure if it still exists? New Town is your best bet for cheaper hotels. Check Trivago for rates, Als, Parthenon and Ambassador are all decent budget options that often have good rates, Alexia often offer cheap rates on there too. A lot more tired looking but ok if you just want a central, budget base.

Your best bet is the Old town, there are a lot of small rooms for rent places and hotels within those walls.

Basically map wise it's mostly the bottom two thirds of the area, south of Socratous St the main tourist drag. look for hand written signs whilst going around. Some are cheap and basic some have been 'boutiqued' and pricey.

The new town is a second option, a larger area and the range of prices is varied but there are cheaper ones in there. Try the area about 2-3 blocks east of Orfanidou St which is the well known bar Street of Rhodes new town, on the west side, one block in from the sea. The Alexia is prominent there, but there are cheaper options a block or two away.

There is a youth hostel in the heart of the old town. I haven't stayed there but walked past it often. It doesn't look particularly attractive, but if you're looking for a budget place, it might suit. Check out this website


If you don't mind going on speck, there are quite a few small places offering rooms in the old town, which you will see just wandering around the backstreets. I hope you manage to find something to suit your budget.
