Driving directions & parking spaces ideas
Although LITTLE BIG HOUSE hostel does not have any private parking space, its neighborhood offers plenty free of charge and secure car/bike parking options at no more than a 5 minute walking distance from its door.
Most of Little Big House’s guests actually park their car just behind the house, where there is an open public space that can fit 7 – 8 cars. The exact street name is MEGARON Street corner with DANAOU Street.
If somebody would like to park as close to LITTLE BIG HOUSE hostel’s door as possible, he/she should drive through Achilleos street (ΑΧΙΛΛΕΩΣ) that starts from the open parking area of Hospital Agios Dimitrios, turn right to Apostolou Pavlou street (ΑΠΟΣΤΟΛΟΥ ΠΑΥΛΟΥ) until he/she reaches Kallitheas Square (ΠΛΑΤΕΙΑ ΚΑΛΛΙΘΕΑΣ). Turning left in Kallitheas Square and turning immediately right on the first street one will find the beginning of ANDOKIDOU (ΑΝΔΟΚΙΔΟΥ) Street. One can find LITTLE BIG HOUSE hostel if he/she follows Andokidou street for 200 m, since it is at number 24. It will be totally fine and free to park anywhere one finds appropriate space for their car at these streets described above. Alternatively, if one wants to avoid driving in the Old City district, the General Hospital of Agios Dimitrios, that is 350 meters south east from LITTLE BIG HOUSE hostel, is a safe choice. Opposite the Hospital there is a big open public space where one could safely park his/her car for free in case they wouldn’t like to enter by car in “Ano Poli”, the Old City district of Thessaloniki. This parking position will leave them 5-6 minutes away from Little Big House.
