It is a really beautiful hostel with a familiar touch where you will feel at home right away (thank you Kosta!!!). The staff is awesome there!!! For travellers who need a clean, comfortable place to sleep and rest, hang around with others in the very comfortable common room or relax in the garden- this is absolutely the most perfect place! It is located in an unbelievable place up in the old idyllic city (easily to find thanks to paintings and signs all the way up) and good for walking around in the city center of Thessaloniki. It was wonderful, close to the beach, grocery stores, restaurants, clubs, bars etc...
I recommend this hostel for sure, I had a really incredible time there!!!

I was very happy with the service provided in Studios Arabas. The hostel has a very cozy atmosphere, awesome staff (thanks guys!) and nice and clean dependencies. It is located upon Thessaloniki's definitively wonderful neighborhood of Ano Polo, but it sits in a somewhat unknown street. Nevertheless, the hostel put signs on nearby streets to help lost taxi drivers. The hostel is 5 minutes away from Roman ruins and from excellent bars and clubs. Only problem is that the wifi signal is weak at the dorm. breakfast could get a little pampering as well. But I had an excellent time at Studios Arabas, and would recommend it to anyone.

I really enjoyed my stay here. It is a warm place. Costa, the owner (or sometimes his mother) take really good care of their guests. The room and toilet is cleaned every day. I would definitely recommend anyone to come here.

I stayed for two nights in Arabas Hostel in Thessaloniki in August 2013. I got a warm welcome and introduction at the hostel which make me feel at home immediately. Kostas, the owner, gave me information about all the sights and activities in Thessaloniki. He is very friendly and hospitable.

I can recommend all travellers to stay at this hostel. They have a nice garden where you can meet with other travellers - relax and have a beer.

This was a very pleasant stay. It was booked last minute, in the high season (July), and was so cheap, so I didn't expect much. But hey, nice hostel, clean rooms. The location is fabulous, in the old town (which means it is a bit of steep walk to get there). The best was the welcome and the friendliness I experienced there. Again!!

Although this hostel is quite hidden away and up a steep hill, it's well worth the effort! We arrived weary and tired after a lengthy journey and was welcomed straight away by the owners, Costa made us feel at home and knew everything there was to know about the area! They know which buses run to a beach, which is around an hour away! The woman there, I don't know her name, cooked us a lovely dinner and they invite you and other guests to join them outside! It's a really nice social atmosphere! I could have stayed there for many more days!

The rooms were well maintained, although facilities aren't amazing they're perfect for what you need! Hot water, comfortable beds, clean linen etc...

There's a nice common lounge you can sit in, or an outside area you can use to catch some sun on the hot days.

I'd recommend this hostel to anyone! It's homely, social and has everything you need! The owners will be more than happy to help you! I feel like they have a real passion about the place.
