“This hostel is by a lake just outside of the city. All of the rooms are little caravans — there’s even a little caravan movie theatre. Also, the kitchen is outside with tables to share with fellow travelers!” —georgiaeloiser
Beds starting at $38.10 per night.
“I stayed in City Circus Athens last year, which was really nice. Very clean with a good breakfast, and they host fun activities so you can get to know other travelers. Movie night with an ouzo tasting was the best part. They also have a roof garden that overlooks the Acropolis!” —Purpleangel97
Beds starting at $17.99 per night.
“It was my first time staying in a hostel while traveling alone, and it completely changed the way I travel! Before I’d even checked in, the owners had introduced me to the other guests chilling in the lounge. All of a sudden, I was part of a family instead of a random stranger. We cooked together, ate together, and took drunken bicycle rides back to the hostel together after two-for-one cocktails in town. They even gave everyone a ride to the best surf breaks every morning, and their surf camp prices are ridiculously affordable.” —Katie Dawes, Facebook
