Great Location with friendly owners

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 27 May 2023via mobile
I stayed here for one night to explore the Meteora Monasteries. The direct train from Athens leaves 8.30am and arrive in Kalambaka around 1pm. The hostel is a 5 mins walk from the station.

The hostel owners were so knowledgeable and helpful on how best to do the hike up to see visit the monasteries. I had planned to share a cab with other travellers staying at the hostel, as the owner recommended this was the cheapest option at €24 return. But the weather was not great, we had thunderstorms with lots of cloud cover. So some of the travellers did the sunrise instead.

Although there is a hiking trail up to the monasteries from the hostel, I chose to catch the bus up to Great Meteoron Monastery. I visited this monastery and then walked the 4km to St Stephens Monastery. It is about an hour to walk with plenty of opportunities to take panoramic photos.

I would recommend staying at tis hostel to meet fellow travellers and you get a great service too.

This is a great hostel. It is centrally located, so walking distance to everything. Stella and her husband do a wonderful job. The hostel is SPOTLESS, there plenty of hot water and the beds are comfortable. It is also very safe. Stella was a great help in showing us how to use the local bus system to access the monasteries and hike through a canyon with in credible views to get back to town. She even loaned us scarves to use a skirts in the Monasteries. I would recommend staying a minimum of 2 nights if you are doing the Monasteries. It's a fun town with cute streets to walk, and great places to just relax after the big hike.

This is a great little hostel, in a very central part of town close to bars, restaurants and shops. It's also a good location to hike up to the Monasteries as the main hiking route is close by. My hosts were super friendly and very welcoming, they spent a lot of time giving me advice about the area and where is best to view the Monasteries, opening times and other tips. A friendly environment in the kitchen too, where i met and spoke with some other guests. I would come back for sure.

No doubt the best hostel I have ever been to. The land lord and the lady are very friendly and supportive. The rooms are very cosy and welcoming. The bar is also awesome. I will definitely recommend this hostel if traveling solo or with friends. All the visiting places are easily accessible from the hostel. @Stella thank you for having me as your guest.

Room tip: Search for Meteora Central Hostel and your stay is sorted. And the land lord and lady are helpful and will guide you for your trips there.

I went by myself and the two owners are the absolute best. They helped with finding a great moped rental to go up into meteora , and gave me a whole itinerary. Great hostel, beds, kitchen. Nothing bad to say at all. Super funny owners. I would reccomend 10/10
