The location of the hotel is hard to beat as well as the price and the staff is friendly but except the boss (fancy dressed woman) people don't seem to always know what they are doing. Air conditioner is broken and "there is nothing which we can do" except give you more blankets. Staff who cleans the place including restrooms,...

I've stayed here a few times and I probably will continue to do so with the cheap price and perfect location. The aircon was broken though so cut out and the remote didn't work which had us waking up from the heat. We had yummy as pancakes one morning. Good WiFi AND a laundry service right there. AMAZING. The front...

I stayed in this property a total of three nights, one in a private room and two in dorm-style accomodation. Each of these nights were excellent. The desk was manned 24h by friendly staff, and they were very welcoming when we checked in at 2am! The communal bathrooms could wear down a bit as the day went on, but they...

We visited the place recently, needing a place for two nights whilst transiting towards another location in Greece. The rooms are very clean, the prices are low and you are pretty much close to all the Athenian hotspots. The staff is friendly, and you've got a automatic food and drinks dispenser in the lobby in case you get thirsty at...

They also made me a discout because I was a volunteering in Athens. Thank...

I stayed in a dorm style room which ended up being a lot better than I envisioned. I wish that checkout was later than 1030 in the morning and that free breakfast wasn't just bread, BUT they had really nice coffee and it was a nice place to sleep so it gets my stamp of approval.

This place is rad as heck. The people here are a bunch of cool twenty somethings hanging out, exploring Athens and themselves through the power of friendship, and eating bread and coffee for breakfast.The place is super cheap, but doesn't feel super cheap. It feels like what staying at college dorms looks like in hipster coming-of-age movies about finding your...

Good location in Plaka and close to Syntygma square but really dirty inside. Breakfast is just toast and the workers are rude. There are better hostels in Plaka that you can stay at. Try to avoid unless it is a last resort.

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 in Athens.

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.
