The neighbourhood

Psiri is one of the best starting points to discover Athens. Located just 3 minutes walking Monastiraki square you are right in the centre of everything. The area is lively and vibrant full of unique stores, tavernas and museums. Al major sites are within 10 minutes walking distance. Strolling through Psiri in the daytime is deceiving. The streets are filled with working class people and the former leather craftsman district still contains a variety of shops and businesses that might be described as practical or business oriented, from type-setters, to fixtures, and material goods for making clothing. The only clues that the area is a hotbed of nightlife are the cafes and restaurants storefronts that look like they have been closed for years and the new shops and boutiques.

Getting around

The metro station at Monastiraki square is just 4 minutes walking and has 2 lines. The green line (port) and the blue line (airport).

I only stayed there for a few hours while waiting for my flight. The bed was clean and the place was quiet. The entrance can be a bit tricky to found and there's no lock from the street to the bedroom. It's really cheap and I recommend for quick stays.

Very cool hostel experience. George was very nice, as was Evi, and everybody working at the restaurant/hostel was quite friendly. The neighborhood is very safe and within walking distance of the Acropolis and many other famous Athenian sites! For those visiting for the first time, know that the room with the bunk beds is down the staircase next to the bar/restaurant!

George is an incredible host. He and his work partner, who is also named George, are both very friendly and welcoming. They treated us to discounts and hospitality in their restaurant, which is conveniently located just upstairs of the sleeping arrangement. The beds are a far cry from perfect, but an unbeatable deal for the price and location. It was very easy to wake up and walk through all the markets to the center of the ancient city center of Athens. Also, they went out of their way to make accommodations for our trip to the airport, which had to be done before the public transportation was running. I would highly recommend this hostel if you don't mind sleeping in a room with 6 bunk beds and 2 outlets.

Great location! One of the owners came to greet us. Super friendly bar staff, great way to meet people from anywhere in the world. The shower and toilet are in 2 separate rooms which is a little bit inconvenient, but the beds were clean. The door is made of metal and bangs really loudly if the person who walks in is not careful. Great price for the area-
