The person that greeted us at the hostel was very kind. Our ferry got in late so we got to the hostel at 3:00am. The location we later learned is in a bad area. The place was pretty run down and not clean by any means, the bathroom didn't have any toilet paper and the only lock on the room door was the push button kind. We had only slept there for 3 hours and had to make it to the airport. Definitely the cheapest and if all you need is a bed then this is your place. It's all we needed.

I stayed here twice, he second time was because I knew how to get there and the price. The wifi is great, and the rooms aren't terrible. The bathroom is not enjoyable, and I actually stayed in a four bedroom dorm alone because no one else checked in. Wouldn't recommend for those traveling alone.


This hostel was fine for what I needed it for - a place to sleep for the night. It was close enough to the train station that I was able to walk but everything was very, very basic. No wifi, they didn't provide a sheet to cover with, the room had a single key, which I imagine could have been quite inconvenient if coming in and out of the room often. It was alright, but don't expect even the most basic of services. I definitely wouldn't stay there longer than a night or two.


Wonderfull family..pefect place


Disgusting. Red ants all over the floor. Very sketchy vibe. We stayed at some pretty low budget places over time, and this place had to be the worst.


The place itself is no big deal, but is located close to metro, shops, restaurants etc. Good if you need a place to stay without all sorts of extras. The staff is really nice and friendly! I wouldn't mind coming back at all. :)

The hostel is just a place to sleep. There is not a real kitchen and if you would like to use it they charge you an extra fee. The common toilets were so small and dirty. They tried to clean it but in general was dirty, as the beds. The bed sheets were dirty since I arrived.

The staff was nice. They have to get rid of cockroaches and to provide more security as I had the sense anyone from outside could enter the dorm.


Staff was really nice, helped us order take out! :) bathrooms were dirty and they didn't inform us that we had to have our own sheet. Overall pretty good right near a police station so made us feel a little safer.


All the same complaints as previous reviews, mainly that there's only one key per room. I took my valuables with me when I went out and I wasn't travelling with a laptop or anything but if I had have been I wouldn't have felt at all ok about leaving it at the hostel. The location is fine, it's not central but it's close to the metro and I never felt unsafe walking back from the metro. The staff are great. I had to change my booking several times, and they were really helpful.


This place is good if you're just looking for a cheap base. Close to the metro so easy to get to. Fairly basic but they have cheap beer and everything you need! Good value for money.


San remois not the flashiest of hostels but its great valuefor money. Personally, I enjoyed my stay there, its in a great location in the centre of town, very close to the metro airport link which is very handy and many bus stops. Its also jn walking distance of many cultural andhistorical sites and many great cafes. San remo also has a rooftop area which is very cool to chill on and the staff here are great, all very friendly and helpful. Would go back.

nothing luxury, just a place to sleep, the kitchen and the bathrooms are too small. they clean very often, and the staff its very helpfull. the location it is not so beatiful but its close to the train and metro station and you can walk to go to he acropolis. the wi fi works very well and they turn on the AC in the nights so is very comfotable to sleep. in resume if you only want a place to sleep and leave your stuff meanwhile travel across the city its a good place.


Staff were friendly, location good if you travel by trains at larissa station. However, room was absolutely hot with no wind due to the buildings surrounding it. Lot can be improved here such as using an aircon. The toilets were also horribly small and stank of sewage all day long. sometimes, the smell permeates the entire hostel.
