Property Description

Experience Olympus's unique hostel on the beach....SUMMIT ZERO!!

Summit Zero Hostel is the ideal place to stay when you want to combine the sea & the mountains. Its serene location is the perfect getaway, whether you want to enjoy the peace and tranquility of the area, or indulge in adventure activities. We aim to provide an informal, friendly, family setup (of both Greek and English origin), whereby we hope to cater to all your needs.

The hostel is situated in Gritsa, right on the beach, overlooking the small harbour of Litochoro, with Mt. Olympus as its spectacular backdrop. Only 1 hour from Thessaloniki's international airport (SKG), it's the ideal location for those who wish to conquer Mt. Olympus, or simply searching for basic, lively, very reasonable, family-run accommodation in beautiful surroundings. The area's popularity stems from its unique diversity. The coastline and beaches stretch for miles, lined with lively beach bars and remote isolated spots. The mountain also has an allure all of its own, attracting both trekkers and serious climbers. There are also many areas of historic and sightseeing interest, such as the ancient city of Dion and the museum of Vergina (both revealing aspects of the life and family of Alexander the Great), as well as the traditionally beautiful, ancient, mountain village of Panteleimonas.

These are just some of the highlights...

Since our Hostel offers cooked meals (meat and veggie), picnics and food brought by you are not recommended. We try to provide a healthy and local cuisine using vegetables and meat from local food markets.
We also offer a good selection of beers, wines, spirits, coffees, softdrinks and ice-creams at reasonable prices. You can chill out in our garden bar under the maple tree in the summer or stay warm in our open fire cozy lounge in the winter. View House Rules

    Such a pleasure to stay in such a chilled, relaxed, homely, friendly place. Staffs are very friendly and accommodating. Perfect location if you want to enjoy the beach (1 min walk), but most of all hike Mount Olympus as most of the people staying there has 1 thing in common, they either about to hike or have hiked Mt Olympus.

    Perfect place to stay to climb Mount Olympus! The staff were really friendly and helpful! The food is lovely, with lots of variety! The hostel over looks a lovely pebble beach, which was great to soothe the aching legs following a long hike!

    Great base for hiking Mt. Olympus, the helpful staff will tell you everything you need to know. Also great for visiting the beach. The facilities feel a bit dated but everything is clean and comfortable. Overall a relaxing place to spend a couple of days.

    Great hostel as a base for summiting Mount Olympus, right by the beach, lots of common areas. Only feedback would be the dorms upstairs need air conditioning and some kitchen area for guests to use would be excellent!

    Hostel was nice and cosy, showers were decent and rooms were nice as well. However the location wasn’t ideal if you’re planning on climbing Mount Olympus. You have to get the bus into Litochoro, of which there is only one morning one at 8:15. It’s not in the town itself. Also food there is a bit pricey.

    Nice characterful hostel however the location made things quite hard being on public transport. From train station it was a hot 45min walk along a road without a footpath and there was only one bus a day into Litochoro

    The hostel had a lovely location right by the sea, however not really near anywhere else and had to get a taxi because buses weren’t regular so ended up being more expensive. Yet, it had great food for a low price and the staff were helpful when looking for hikes up the mountain
