Location is privileged, close to the best spots in Thessalonika. Personnel is very attentious, they gave us all the information on best places to go in the city, and gave as a map. Building is quite old, and they don´t give you towels nor soap for having bath, but water is very hot and nice showers.


bad reception service, creepy atmosphere

The whole place needs a serious makeover. It was very cheap, however the room was filthy and there was no cover on the duvet. Would never go back.


The hotel (hostel) is located near to the city centre, which is the only advantage of booking such a place. On the other hand, the place is dirty, very noisy at night due to the traffic outside because the room windows are too old and don't close properly, so you are not going to sleep at night.... The wireless Internet will work sometimes and other times not, same as the hot water. If you are planning to stay there then think twice and search again for other places.

Our stay in private two-bed room was nice.the room was good for its price.the location is just perfect,very close to city center and cafe,bar area.toilets are clean but the cleanliness of baths were poor.


Beds were really clean but the floor was little untidy. Little balcony was good because otherwise that room would have been too gloomy. Staff was friendly enough and after all it was very cheep place and good value for money.


We had to book this hostel only because there were no room in another one. There wasn't hot water after 11 pm, the man at the reception doesn't speak English, the locks of the doors were broken..But the worst, rooms were disgusting and even though we changed sheets, in the morning we had bedbug bites. Of course, they did nothing about that. I strongly recommend not the stay at this filthy place.


The place it is in a amazing street, but the bathroom are disgusting, the bedroom is scary...the staff are very rude!


Well, there are not many backpackers hostels in Thessaloniki. It's a cheap hotel, located right in the center, if you are just looking for a bed and a shower, that's your place!


The hostel was in a great location and was happy with what we got for the price. As far as security goes, it didn't feel all that secure, but we had absolutely no issues. When you leave your luggage in the storage room they just hand you the key to put it in and take it out so it's not very supervised. The room was very simple but was all we needed and clean. The showers were also kept very clean. As far as the staff, they were okay but not great.
