George at the reception showed me the ways to get to cities and Aegina Island near Athens and upon his recommendation I could find very nice rooftop cafe, bar and restaurant (try Couleur Locale, 360 degrees bar, Exarchia, Monastiraki). I had everything I needed in the kitchen and could reach a supermarket 3 min. on foot. The neiborhood is safe and not so loud.

Hostels – what are they?

Hostels offer so much more than a cheap place to stay – they're also a fun way to travel and meet like-minded people. Common areas like shared kitchens and game rooms give you the chance to swap tips, tricks, and travel stories with backpackers from all over the world.

Hostels have come a long way since the first youth hostel opened back in 1912. Nowadays there's something for everyone, from budget "crash pads" to 5-star "poshtels." Whether you'd prefer a bed in a shared dorm or your own private room, you'll see that most hostels are cheaper than local hotels – and a lot more fun, too!
