We were supposed to stay for three nights, and after the first one I found evidence of bedbugs in my bed and woke up with bedbug bites. We decided to leave and I informed the front desk staff of this, he told me he could...More
The Student Inn was super central to all attractions! From the ruins, Acropolis, the bus station - they're all a 10 minute walk from each other!

This hostel is in a very good location, in the heart of Plaka, and most of the staff were friendly. The rooms and bathrooms were pretty basic and the beds not very comfortable with no lockers, but it was fine. The breakfast was also good.
Due to its proximity to the Acropolis, Plaka remains the area where the majority of foreign visitors stay and play. Its attractive features include small squares, some notable museums and the beautiful Mitropolis cathedral, as well as a host of places to stay, eat and drink. Its pedestrian zones make it a pleasant place to escape from the city’s notorious traffic. Adrianou and Kidathineon Streets contain a
number of souvenir shops, offering classier items than you will find in the Flea Market. The most rewarding section to explore is the upper reaches towards the Acropolis itself, where many old stone houses with tiled roofs have survived. Up here you can find leafier corners and the odd quaint taverna with unobstructed views of the ancient rock.
