Youth Hostels in Greece

Youth Hostel

There have always been youth hostels in Athens, at least as long as I can remember though some were not called hostels. They were mostly in old mansions and you had a choice of living dormitory style or having your own room. In the old days you could also stay on the roof for almost nothing and since it hardly ever rains in the summer this was a great deal. They were not the best of accommodations to say the least and you had to share the bathroom with a dozen or more people. But if you needed a bed (or a spot on the roof to lay out your sleeping bag) staying at a youth hostel left money for more important things like eating and drinking. There are still many youth hostels, particularly in Athens, and also a number of pensions and hostels that are not necessarily for youths. There are also some on the islands, Thessaloniki and some parts of the Greek mainland.
