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.

    A wonderful place to start your journey to Mytikas, to find companions, and to get all the info. I was one of the last visitors before the next season. No people, only the Aegean Sea in front. ... I imagine how lively-lovely this place with folks. ... Suddenly, I have the sweetish aftertaste of something good; something what I did not find. But feeling joy that I witnessed the end, even if till the next cycle. Whenever I'm back in the area, I will definitely pop up to say 'hi' to Peri :)

    Summit Zero is so lovely and the people are so welcoming and helpful. It’s a little out of Litochoro but you can walk there from the train station and it’s the only place to stay by the beach!

    Summit Zero is a beautiful hostel to stay in with lovely staff, lovely beach out front and some cute restaurants nearby to eat at! The staff/owner of the hostel is really friendly and will help answer any of your questions - he even practiced slack-lining with us! The only downside is that it is quite difficult to get to Litochoro City Centre as there is a bus that runs on the weekends but weekdays rarely runs and it’s not walkable. Hitch-hiking was recommended and is easy to do though.

    The location is not ideal, but you have the beach! You can always get a cab or ask other guests for a ride (they are likely to go similar directions ;) ). Slackline in the garden, beer in the fridge,

    ON THE BEACH SO A LONG WAY TO THE PEAK. We walked from the beach to Mitikas! This place broke my heart, because I could tell how good it can be. We arrived at the offseason and where the only ones there, so no atmosphere at all. But, in the summer it looks like paradise and I really want to come back just for the vibe that could be. Additionally the chef was so if you come in the offseason there's no food. Buetifull place though.

    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.
