HI - Athens - Student & Travellers Inn Hostel Reviews

Great hostel in a great location!

We stayed for 2 nights and had a wonderful experience. Everything was clean and everyone was very friendly, welcoming, and helpful. I highly recommend staying here while in Athens!

Great location

hostel itself was good, gave us everything we could ask for for a night. Particularly it had a great location close to syntagma square.

Age 20 | Hong Kong

mmm check out cine paris but go sleep some place else

Location is impeccable! unfortunately we were thrown into the overflow section at 28 per night, bottom floor, no windows, dirrrrrrttty hairy bed sheets (nothing like in the pictures)... ohh yess, and there were cockroaches!! First time in my life I've ever had to deal with those, nearly had a heart attack, I even flicked one off of the bar tenders shoulder because he was frozen with fear ( hahah poor guy). Bathrooms.. GROSS!

There is a nice bar, t.v. computers. The location is incredible, restaurants nearby are delicious and the nightlife is great-- super close to an outdoor movie theater "Cine Paris," a movie playing to the front of you, the acropolis is lit up to the left of you, the stars above you- its beautiful.

verdict- check out cine paris but sleep some place else


Very good

This hostel was a little more expensive than the others in the area, but it's in a great location and the staff are friendly. I stayed here in April 2002 and again in June 2002. They have dorms, which are not segregated by gender -- which was kind of a relief after sharing with some luggage-laden bimbos previously. A lot of the rooms have balconies looking out over the street and private bathrooms (four people in a dorm sharing one bathroom). I met some great people here.


Avoid this hostel. took the bus from the pink palace. my sisters and myself and some others choose to stay here. worst mistake ever. only thing good about this hostel is its location to the acropolis. our room was beyond disgusting. leaks, dirty sheets, just dirt on everything, bathroom on our floor was a toilet that didnt work, and a sink. to get in you had to straddle toilet just to get the door closed, bathroom was covered in filth. the hostel moved our room without our knowledge while we were out for the day. the next room was just as bad. people we met in the hostel, like us booked out early. travel agent in the hostel was never around and tried to over charge us insanely for a ticket to santorini.


Really great location, walking distance to the acropolis. Overall it was pretty dirty and not the nicest. I liked the little patio and the lady who works there who can hook it up with ferry tickets to the islands, which is extremely helpful. The man that works the counter at night can be a bit creepy.


We stayed four nights in June, 2004. We had a comfortable double bed, clean sheets and towels, a private bathroom with a powerful shower and excellent air conditioning. We paid 55 euros for two per night. The furnishing was short on cupboards but what do we expect at this price in the middle of Plaka?

HINT ABOUT SYSTEM: As guests check out so the room number is put on the cleaners' sheet for action. If you stay more than one night then you need to tell reception that you require a cleaner. This way you get clean bins, towels and sheets every day. It's better than some quite expensive hotels.

The only gripe: I have never before seen so many ill-mannered young people gathered together in one place, several nationalities though largely French and American. In our experience, the hostel was of a higher standard than its guests.


Very helpful staff, especially the travel desk staff, who offered trips and tickets to the islands. Not the cleanest rooms, but livable. Breakfast was good, and the location was great. Don't take the walking tour, it is totally unprofessional.

It is hard to look past this newly renovated building situated in the heart of the Plaka (Old Athens). The Plaka is the oldest section of Athens and most streets have been closed to cars. However, it is easy to pass the days walking around the narrow streets amongst restaurants, cafes, and the many tourist shops for all the gifts you need (and those you don't!) to take away with you as a wonderful reminder.

The Students Inn is centrally located for everything Athens is famous for, and as only 10 minutes walk from the Acropolis, you will know you have chosen the right place to stay.

We have private rooms for 1, 2, 3 or 4 people, and dorm rooms. Some rooms with private facilities. Air conditioned rooms. Showers with hot water 24 hours. Some rooms with balconies.

The Student & Travellers Inn also offers a wide range of services:
- 24 hours Reception, no lockout, no curfew.
- Internet available 24 hours, just 2 euro for 30 minutes.
- International telephone - Direct/Collect (any time) .
- Money exchange
- Laundry - same day service.
- Wide range of food available.
- Luggage storage - Short and long term available.
- Free safe for valuables.
- Fax facilities (send and receive).
- Wake-up calls.
