Property Description

Arabas is a friendly, laid-back guesthouse with lots of character, cosy atmosphere and great common areas perfect for travellers looking to experience the unique atmosphere of Thessaloniki. We are located in the Upper Town (Ano Poli), the most beautiful, quiet and safe area of the city, just next to the byzantine western walls and only 2 steps away from the traditional neighbourhood ''Tsinari' where you can taste the local cuisine.The walled city and its monuments can reasonably be called an open Byzantine Museum.Find out about all the Unesco heritage monuments and visit them on foot or join one of the free walking tours to explore some more.

We have a large variety of rooms.Choose one and come to stay with us and be part of our backpacker's family.All rooms include air-condition,ceiling fans, free Wi-Fi, free linen, security lockers, reading lights, hot water, and ensuite shower/toilet.Private rooms have balconies overlooking the sea,kitchenette with utensils, fridge and include towels.Shared rooms have either big windows overlooking the upper town or the garden and those on the ground floor have small private gardens.
We offer free city maps, travel info for day trips or even longer and city recommendations.Large common areas- lounge with a 42'' TV with DVDs,fully equipped common kitchen and BBQ,fridge, laundry facilities, and a lovely garden surrounded by flowers where you can relax in your free time and enjoy the Greek sun!
Although we have events at night, we are not a party Hostel, so after 23.00h you can always continue the party in the local pubs nearby :)

The city centre is only 15 minutes on foot from here. Meet the locals who color and enliven the real Thessaloniki. Feel the pulse of the city as you explore urban streets, hidden courtyards, local life and history!

There's also a bus stop(called Palia lahanagora) a few steps below our guesthouse where you can catch a bus(No 28) to downtown every 20 mins. There's also a small bus, number 22,(cultural line) starting from Olymbiados with Sahtouri Street corner , taking you up the hill, passing by the hostel and going on for a tour through the picturesque Upper Town of Thessaloniki.

    Excellent value and location (on the west side of the old town)! We booked a private room, which was spacious, clean and comfortable. The bathroom was also nice and clean. Check-in/out was a breeze and Costa made us feel very welcome, sharing tips and recommendations of places to go. There's a kitchen and grill area available for guests to use, and although there were not many people while we were there (due to the pandemic) it is definitely a good place to chill and relax. Highly recommended!

    Wonderful Warm Welcome at reception complete with a Greek coffee. Location is ideal for getting around the city, a 20 minute climb to the best view of Thessaloniki. Value is excellent I stayed in a single private and was able to use the kitchen and the balcony. Another review mentioned the slamming doors which I did notice but it was not an ongoing issue on my visit, very minimal compared to the homie and welcoming vibe of the place. I could not recommend this city or Hostel any higher!

    The room was spacious n clean enough. Hostel is up to a hill but close to city center. There was a leak in the bathroom that I could hear from the room and made my sleep challenging.

    So the hostel was fine itself. Had the twin room which was nice. Fair enough with the virus, not many people around. But the staff made no real effort to be friendly. Very poor athmosphere and not close to anything unfortunately. Just a place to sleep. Not a bad hostel, just the others would be far better. Also you should take that you're doing activities off hostel world if you aren't doing any
