It is a really beautiful hostel with a familiar touch where you will feel at home right away. The staff is awesome! For travellers who need a clean, comfortable place to sleep and rest, hang around with others in the very comfortable common room or relax in the garden-this is absolutely the most perfect spot!It is located in an unbelievable area up in the old idyllic city (easily to find thanks to paintings and signs all the way up) and good for walking around in the city center of Thessaloniki.
One of the cosiest hostel I have ever been, great staff, great people, the whole neighborhood atmosphere was priceless. Hope to see you again.
This hostel is marvellous!The location is unique.Up there in the picturesque upper town of Thessaloniki,so peacefull and yet so close to the noisy city center.In the past few years I've been travelling a lot n staying in several hostels,but never seen one with such a strong character.The rooms are very nice and clean.I was about to stay only for 1 night but I ended up staying for a week,thanks to the awesome staff of Arabas who made me feel like home.In other words,hostel Arabas rocks!!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The staff (and guests) were extremely friendly and helpful - the atmosphere was open and it felt more like staying with friends. Highly recommended!
More lamps and wall sockets in rooms, please!
Really nice place! The dorms are pretty basic equipped but the nice and helpful owner makes the experience special. I enjoyed my stay there thank to Doras great food and hospitality!
We were very disappointed with this hostel. We've stayed in nearly 30 cities in the past 3 months (that's a lot of hostels) and this is the first time we have left upset and angry. The staff are rude and deceptive so be warned. Be prepared to pay extra every step of the way (use the kitchen area: that's extra, use the stove: extra again, late flight/bus/train and want to hang out after checkout: half day extra per person). The lighting and security is also poor at night. Find somewhere else!
Lovely hostel, great chilled out atmosphere / cool common room area and staff were all really helpful. good signposting of route to hostel from main road ! definitely recommend

The hostel was great, and the owners (Kostas and Dimitra) strive to make everyone's stay a great experience. Rooms and bath were clean, only the location is a bit hard to find, if you're on foot. Very nice hostel, will visit again!
I stayed at this hostel for 8 nights. The house itself looks like its almost new. Rooms are cleaned daily. Showers have hot water. I especially liked the bar in the evening where cheap beer is served and theres always nice people to meet. What makes this hostel exceptional is Costa and his wife. Costa knows everything about the north of greece and is happy to share everything he knows with the travellers. They also host some cool events like movie or barbecue nights. There is nothing I disliked!
good hostel, great atmosphere though it lacked a little bit of security but I think this problem will be rectified
The hostel is average good. The staff is super nice and helpfull.
Very friendly welcome and adequate facilities, only problem was a little difficult to find.
A nice hostel in the old city. The staff is very friendly and the atmosphere is great.
Nice staff & facilites, however note that you have to pay extra for everything (at least that's what is written). The rooms could be cleaner and beds more comfortable.
Very young and relaxed atmosphere, definitely the best for backpackers in Thessaloniki
Great atmosphere in the old town of Thessaloniki.
Its a great option. I found a good value for money. Owners Costas and Dimitra are extremily helpful. Excellent atmosphere and friendly people.
Nice place. Costa, the owner was helpful and friendly even when we arrived before everyone else was up. The directions on Hostelworld were correct and helpful, except for trying to find the 'middle road', apparently the only stone-paved street. I'd advise writing that out of the three main roads across the roundabout in front of you, it's the middle one, and then take the left fork up the hill. We got confused as the first road is also partly stone-paved, deceiving you a bit.
