    This is my favorite Hostel I ever have stayed at! This is a great place to meet awesome people, who are all open-minded and welcoming. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. I came alone and after leaving Thessaloniki I had five new friends, I met some amazing people at the hostel and we explored the city together, everyone who joined us along the way from the hostel just wanted the most out of life and were living life it to the fullest. I highly recommend this hostel.

    This hostel was a great place to stay for the couple days that I was in Thessaloniki! I received the most warm and friendly welcoming that I have ever before at a hostel, the staff was wonderful and very helpful. We were given a map and advice on what to see during the time frame we were working with. The price was also very good value for the money and I appreciated that. The location was also very nice with a great view from right out front and very near many great restaurants and such.

    Reception and kitchen are locked before 8am, so if you have an early bus or flight, you can't check out or retrieve anything left in the fridge. Beds have power sockets.

    Staff were really friendly and helpful. Location is a bit away from everything, and in a residential area. Good if you don’t mind walking to the sites and a quieter atmosphere.

    My luggage broke coming into Thessaloniki so I needed to get new ones. I explained it to the owner what happened The next day I went to get a new suitcase so I went to reception to ask how to get around the city only to be ignored by the girl who worked there. I got a new suitcase and was going to throw out the old one the next day. The girl came in the room moaning me that I can't leave it on the floor even though it had been explained to the other staff. The other staff were very nice.

    I arrived very tired around 11 pm and at first it wasn't really clear which bed was mine and then I found that I had to take off dirty linen from the bed and put clean ones. It was the first time something like this happened to me in many months traveling. This didn't make me feel really welcome.
