Myself and two friends stayed here comfortably. There is free wifi and the staff is very nice. He even let us use his computer to look up ferry times because we did not have our own. He helped us get a cab and everything. The location is good, but make sure you look closely at the street signs because it...

After a long day and a stressful drama getting to Greece, it was a relief to arrive at 4am to friendly and helpful staff! The location couldn't have been more perfect. Really easy to get to from the airport, even if unfamiliar with the city. Central to public transport, not that it really matters as most of the main landmarks...

Some staff members are helpful and friendly. However, the room we had did not worth the price we paid. We didn't expect the room as good as the pictures shown in the website, but the difference was really huge. Besides, some bathrooms are so dark and without a intact curtain.

Super friendly personnel with good English - changed the room to suit our request with no problem, were always ready to help. Great location in the center, all the places of interest are walking distance. They also provide laundry (for additional price) which is very good because we had a long stay. Very good value for the price offered.

Stayed at this place during the strikes in May. Made arrangements in advance online, very helpful staff. Great location (just around the corner from La Placa. 10 minutes walk from the Acropolis.). Place was clean and comfortable, I stayed with friends in a private 3 bed room, very clean and decent amenities. Breakfast was also good, get there early for...

If you dont mind too much about great facilities, but want to be in the center and in a safe area then go here. I visited this place at the end of January which is low season and therefore lower prices. It was extremely cheap and i was very happy with it. I left early so did not have time...

I stayed in this hostel for 2 nights well by choosing an accommodation that would be cheap and close to the major monuments in Athens attractions.

My room was freezing and smelt of old cigarette smoke; the faded linens were kind of dirty; the only outlet was four feet up the far wall; and the rest of the grotty furniture looked like it came out of the Salvation Army reject pile. The Wi-Fi was so weak as to be unusable and there was no soap in...

Staying in Plaka

Neighbourhood Profile
Plaka
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 number of souvenir shops, offering classier items than you will find in the Flea Market. The most rewarding section to explore is the upper reaches towards the Acropolis itself, where many old stone houses with tiled roofs have survived. Up here you can find leafier corners and the odd quaint taverna with unobstructed views of the ancient rock.
