You can find it and get on it, either outside the Railway Station (OSE), or from many bus stops at the city centre (for example “Platia Eleftherias” at Venizelou Street). When on it, the most convenient bus stop to get off at is bus stop "Agios Pavlos"(ΑΓΙΟΣ ΠΑΥΛΟΣ), which is in a 4 minute walking distance from Little Big House. After you get off, you continue downwards till you find a flight of downwards steps. Continue left and down till you reach Andokidou street (ΑΝΔΟΚΙΔΟΥ). Our hostel is on your left hand at number 24.

(Detailed directions in greek : 'Ανεβαίνοντας την οδό Ακροπόλεως, στρίβουμε δεξιά στην οδό Παπανικολή και θα οδηγήσει κατηφορικά στην οδό Ανδοκίδου').

Location being of key importance, we decided to renovate our house that was set in the most beautiful and historical area of the city, the Old City area of Thessaloniki (in Greek 'Ano Poli'). Our location is ideal for travelers who want their trips to be free from transport means. Everything one should and would want to experience in Thessaloniki is in a short and pleasant walking distance.
