    There was nothing really special about this hostel other than the perfect location. If all you need is a place to sleep, it's good but I wouldn't spend more time than needed. The bathrooms really need to be updated, but the rooms were fine and...More

    I know the term 'service' and 'hostel' don't always fit in the same positive sentence. The location was great. The Plaka is the best place to stay. We considered staying in Monstraki. But really pleased we stayed in this area instead. Was a great base...More

    Due to its proximity to the Acropolis, Plaka remains
    the area where the majority of foreign visitors stay
    and play. Its attractive features include small
    squares, some notable museums and the beautiful
    Mitropolis cathedral, as well as a host of places to
    stay, eat and drink. Its pedestrian zones make it a
    pleasant place to escape from the city’s notorious
    traffic. Adrianou and Kidathineon Streets contain a

    You need to take the subway from the airport towards syntagma square and then walk 5 minutes down Amalias boulevard towards sygrou boulevard and the hotel is going to be on your right hand, on a small street. Good luck! :)
