I want to find a clean, centrally-located hostel in Athens but I don't want to be up all night with young partiers. I'm looking for an authentic experience-not another spring break! Any suggestions on mid-range hostels?
Jennifer, there are very few Hostels in Greece at all, and I think only one or 2 in Athens. What is your budget per night?
The cheapest centrally-located non-Hostel is John's Place, in Plaka, at about 45 Euros for a single -- but I don't think u can reserve via internet... you can find the phone #in guidebooks or on the internet.
What is "mid-range" for you? In the islands in May or June one can get very good digs for 20-35 per double in small family hotels. Athens is a very different story.
More info on your $$ limites and expectations AND the dates of your trip will help us to help you better.
I've actually already booked in Athens and Rome. Now looking for Florence, Paris and London at around no more than $25 per night.
