RentRooms Thessaloniki Reviews

Thessaloniki is a beautiful historic port town. RentRooms is in a great place to enjoy the city. Kind, helpful staff, high standards of cleanliness, and a fluffy cat are just some of the features you can expect at this hostel.

The Location

RentRooms is the only hostel located within the city walls of Thessaloniki. It is right next to the Rotunda, a popular free attraction. Since this is near the city center, nearly everything is within walking distance. RentRooms is easy to get to. Thessaloniki is serviced with an airport, train station, public bus system, taxi companies, and pedestrian-friendly streets. The hostel does not have designated parking spaces, but there are some nearby. However, with it being a busy area between the university and downtown, it may be difficult to find a close available parking spot. RentRooms has signs on both the front and back of the building, making it easy to identify.

Rooms and Bathrooms

RentRooms has several different options for lodging. Dorms are co-ed or gender-specific, or you could get a private room. Each room is referred to as a different nation, and are marked accordingly by the country's flag. The rooms are decorated according to the nation they represent. All rooms have ensuite bathrooms which are cleaned daily, and many have a balcony. Each guest is issued two keys: a key card to enter the building, and a physical key to unlock the room. There is also the option to get a key for a small locker located on the 2nd floor, although no in-room lockers are available.

Common Spaces

RentRooms has an outdoor area doubling as a cafe. Breakfast is served in the morning. Pick from six menu options and unlimited beverages. The kitchen is off-limits to guests, but all rooms do include a fridge to store personal food. The reception area is another popular place to hang out and meet people, with a sofa, computers, a bookcase, free maps, and often a cat! There is also a table and chairs on each floor for those who prefer to retreat to a quieter space.


If you go to Thessaloniki, you really can't go wrong when you stay at RentRooms. The only word of caution is that on your first night, you must arrive before midnight, as reception is closed between midnight and 8am. No matter what you do in northern Greece, RentRooms is a wonderful place to call temporary home at the end of the day!

Pleasant hostel with sitting space and terrace bordering on park, really nice, helpful staff. Last but not least, the choice between 6(!) different breakfasts in the morning. Oh yes, and the central location!


An ok place

It was a decent place to spend a couple nights, it is ok for the most part. Very good location, clean and has a great helpful staff. Breakfast is included and served on the terrace, refreshing. the bathrooms and showers are the inconvenient part of it since they are in the same spot inside the rooms, two persons can not be there at the same time. Not a bad place at all.

Good and clean but lacking atmosphere

Facilities were well maintained and in Good condition. Free breakfast is a bonus and price was fair. Only disappointment was the lack of atmosphere. Everyone seems to keep to themselves. But maybe was just the crew that was there when I was there.

Great location, lovely and friendly staff. This is the place to stay in Thessaloniki and meet cool travelers.


Such a lovely place, such a good energy. Have met amazing travelers there and the staff give some special charm to whole place, alwayes ready to help with everything.


Very clean and cozy atmosphere. Perfect location. Great breakfast. Unvaluably helpful staff with honest smile!


The staff were really nice and it's a good location, but there's no kitchen available for guests, no free towels, and I got eaten alive by bed bugs :(


Clean, central location, pleasant common areas and nice breakfast.


Nice hostel, very friendly staff, but unfortunately, at least during my stay, it was the kind of dormitory with mostly young men who stay in the room a lot, who talk loudly on the phone, not backpackers at all.


Really comfortable with a friendly staff. Location is right by a lot of the historical sights in Thessaloniki. I had a great stay here.


The only place to stay in Thessaloniki. Amazing location, extremely helpful staff - and the cats!


Exceptionally friendly and helpful staff. Nothing was too much trouble. Good breakfast choices. So central, yet the garden cafe and green space beyond was really restful.


Loved this place. Staff was great, location very central without having to climb the hill. Only downside was lack of people due to covid.


The hostel was clean and comfortable. The beds are the best Ive seen in a hostel, and the room had a terrace which is also a plus. Due to COVID there werent a lot of people in the hostel which was a shame. The staff is terrific, very nice and helpful. Its right in the middle of the city which is very convenient. A great place.


They dystopiaed they are cold but efficient I utopiae they dystopiae They didn't talk i felt restrained they have a nice cat though they didn't open their hearts


A lovely hostel in the heart of the city.

Very clean and comfortable.


Really great stuff and amazing atmosphere. 10/10 I recommend it!


Great place, great staff, has a beautiful garden, prices are awesome, close to everything. Although my standards are obviously low, it is the cleanest hostel I've ever been to (if that's your thing). And they are not stingy about towels and the little things. Really loveable place.


I had a lovely stay. The staff were very helpful all the time, Adriana gave me tips and help me with any query about Thessaloniki.

Thank you, I'll definitely come back and I'll highly recommend it!


My experience was:


The location was perfect: pretty close to everything but fairly peaceful and quiet.

Staff were really nice and helpful with everything.

The room & bathroom were clean, my only problem was with the stairs which were kinda narrow and slippery, so going up or down with a suitcase would've posed a bit of a problem (and it indeed did to others).


Nothing to complain and a lot to love.


Helpful staff, delicious Greek breakfast, friendly backpacker vibe on the balcony.
