"In the heart of the Plaka" Student & Travellers' Inn Tip by Sharon

Student & Travellers' Inn, Athens: 278 reviews and 5 photos

  My little room
by Sharon

The students Inn isn't the typical kind of place which i would normaly stay in. It was quite a change for me as im quite spoiled and used to a minimum (!) 3* hotels.
But when i arrived to this hostel i was quite surprised. first, its fantastic Location, second it wasn't what i had in mind... probably what i imagined was the simple hostels that you see in the far east... But this was different.
It was like a small hotel, very clean, really nice and helpful staff, and the room was not that bad.
They offer either shared rooms or private rooms. Needless to say that i wasn't going to share a room with anyone, oh no, not me.
The private room was quite small with a comfi shower and small clothes cupboard.
Well basically thats what i needed.
The problem at this hostel is that in the morning when the cleaners are starting to work...thats aprx when your sleep is ending..
They never talk quietly and the wooden doors are kind of light ones so...

The time that i was there was once again an advantage cause i think that in summer time its fully booked and then it can be much more noisier...

The price was relatively Expensive 45 Euro per night but was changed in March... meaning more expensive at the high season.
Yes thats Athens... expensive but then i wouldn't changed that cause i couldn't ask for a better location, it was perfect, in a lovelty lovely quite area of the Plaka, where you are so close to the Akropolis and all you have to do is walk 2 min' and look up and there it is...
Now after visiting a few well known areas of Athens i know that in my next time there i'll stay only in the plaka and no where else !
