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. Well this was a perfect choice, I chose the double beds room but remember that the bathroom was shared but in front of my room. Score 10 for the location , the distance is...

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...

This is a great place to stay! The staff are super friendly and more then willing to sit and chat with you! The breakfast is really lovely!

The hostel is located in Plaka, right beside the Acropolis and many other must see attractions. It's very basic: slightly lumpy beds, weak shower, no air con (in our room anyway) etc. but if you plan on only sleeping there, it's definitely worth it. The staff, for the most part, were very friendly and accommodating. I doubt you'll be able...

The hostel is located in the best part of the Athens, very close to main sites and we felt very safe. We stayed there for three nights and we liked it. The staff was friendly and helpful. It is simple but nice and great value.

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.
