I'm a 30 year old freelance journalist/writer/translator dividing my time between Athens and Paris.
I love travelling, swimming, music and films.
Very nice area.. Anarchist and not touristic but restaurant, peoples and everything was very friendly. If you are young and want see the real Athens, meet great people and eat awesome food with greek concert for cheap price, it's the place !:)
About the host, very friendly and easy to communicate :)
Yagos is a great host and his apartment a dream come true within the Athens city centre. The view from the roof garden is stunning and it is beautifully decorated with lots of plants. A green oasis in the middle of busy Exarchia, which is full of nice bars and restaurants. The flat is self is very nice as well. Clean, tidy and comfortable for up to 3 persons. This place comes highly recommended and we will be back for sure!
I stayed one week in Yagos'attic, that I had chosen mostly for the large terrace (that is probably bigger than the flat!) and the location (I wanted to explore Exarcheia). October was perfect as I could make use of the terrace and it was not too hot in the flat. I just regret that the chaise lounge was broken. Yagos was not there but, as a cool host, had arranged that I could pick up the keys at a shop on the square. The flat was as I pictured, bohemian, a bit dusty in some corners, but overall friendly and welcoming. A friend joined me for a few days, both my bed and the sofa bed were comfy (a positive point). I did not have to cook, food is everywhere. Staying in Yagos' flat was an uncomplicated and nice overall experience...
Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay - especially if you're a foodie. Great value, great location and superb recommendations for places to eat! The area reminds me of Kreuzberg in Berlin. Great views and nice and quiet if you're a light sleeper.
Will try to stay here any time I'm back in Athens, and Yagos is so helpful - an absolute dream.

Yagos was a fantastic host, very helpful with great recommendations for things to do and places to eat nearby! The apartment was very nice and the balcony was great to sit on and read!
Really nice place. Was perfect for me and my husband. Loved the decor and the rooftop, although we weren't there long enough to enjoy it. Yagos wasn't around but we were able to pick up keys from a deli nearby and he was very quick with emails and communicating with us from beginning to end. The apt is also in a cool neighborhood with great restaurants. Yago's restaurant list was perfect and we enjoyed all of the places we went to. Would recommend! Thanks Yagos!
Really great stay in Yagos' flat. The terrace is truly amazing to rest in the sun light at the end of the day. We walked everywhere, and never had to use public transports. The neighbourhood is full of really good places to eat and very lively in the evening. Yagos also gave us some really good recommendations for eating closer to the more touristic areas. Perfect!
Yagos flat is absolutely amazing.
He is a great host too.
I absolutely recommand this flat.
We very much enjoyed the apartment, and the roof garden was amazing. One of my favorite memories will be standing on the 7th story, surrounded by the garden and looking out over Athens.
The area around the apartment is definitely a unique area, we found multiple organic/bio shops to buy food, water, wine, pastries, bread etc. all very close, we walked everywhere. There are also coffee shops, tavernas and other places to acquire excellent food, drinks, and to just chill.
The apartment itself was clean, very comfortable; really an excellent place.
Yagos is a perfect guest. I think the flat was cleaner than when he arrived.
