If only they had cleaned the toilets....

The area was amazing and we probably would not have seen it if we didn't stay there. The people were great. It smelled a bit of mildew and the bathrooms were not clean. Probably ok for the young traveler

A marvelous hostel in the heart of the old city of Thessaloniki. The staff was very welcoming and really helpful.They gave me a free map and explanations about the city tours and the bus to the airport.The dormitory I slept was really spacious and clean with a bathroom ensuite. Most of all I likes the cozy common room that looked like a western saloon and the fact that there is a fully equiped common kitchen. I totally recommend it.

Wir hatten wahrscheinlich das schönste Zimmer, haben über die Stadt geschaut und den Olymp gesehen. Die Matrazen könnten etwas besser sein, ansonsten waren wir sehr zufrieden.
