Experience Olympus's unique hostel on the beach....SUMMIT ZERO!!
Summit Zero Hostel is the ideal place to stay when you want to combine the sea & the mountains. Its serene location is the perfect getaway, whether you want to enjoy the peace and tranquility of the area, or indulge in adventure activities. We aim to provide an informal, friendly, family setup (of both Greek and English origin), whereby we hope to cater to all your needs.
The hostel is situated in Gritsa, right on the beach, overlooking the small harbour of Litochoro, with Mt. Olympus as its spectacular backdrop. Only 1 hour from Thessaloniki's international airport (SKG), it's the ideal location for those who wish to conquer Mt. Olympus, or simply searching for basic, lively, very reasonable, family-run accommodation in beautiful surroundings. The area's popularity stems from its unique diversity. The coastline and beaches stretch for miles, lined with lively beach bars and remote isolated spots. The mountain also has an allure all of its own, attracting both trekkers and serious climbers. There are also many areas of historic and sightseeing interest, such as the ancient city of Dion and the museum of Vergina (both revealing aspects of the life and family of Alexander the Great), as well as the traditionally beautiful, ancient, mountain village of Panteleimonas.
These are just some of the highlights...
Since our Hostel offers cooked meals (meat and veggie), picnics and food brought by you are not recommended. We try to provide a healthy and local cuisine using vegetables and meat from local food markets.
We also offer a good selection of beers, wines, spirits, coffees, softdrinks and ice-creams at reasonable prices. You can chill out in our garden bar under the maple tree in the summer or stay warm in our open fire cozy lounge in the winter.
