Don't expect nothing but a good location. Everything is too old and needs to be updated, specially the bathrooms. Breakfast is only bread with some butter and cheap Nutella.
It's very different from the photos.
On the other hand, there no place better to stay...More
I stayed for one month after trying two other hostels in Athens. I stayed in three different rooms.
Location: Very near the Acropolis, 5 minutes from Syntagma, 12 minutes from Monastiraki, and a free walking tour starts just across the road. Being out of the...More
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

We help millions of travellers each month to find the perfect hotel for both holiday and business trips, always with the best discounts and special offers.
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.
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! :)
