STAY Rhodes Bar & Gastropub

We offer hospitality to guests and visitors at our hostel and at our hotel. There’s something to suit everyone at STAY. STAY Hostel is the home of our now-famous STAY Bar.

Surroundings of STAY Rhodes

It’s so easy to explore from here! We are right in the heart of the new town of Rhodes. A short walk can take you to beaches, the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Old Town and public transport. However you want to spend your day is just a few steps away.

You have easy access to the west and east coasts of Rhodes. The west coast is ideally suited for windsurfing – conditions there are generally windier and the waves higher. On the east coast the sea is calmer and more typical of the Aegean. STAY Hotel is located right next to both beaches and STAY Hostel within a 5-10 minute walk. For beaches further afield, there are good bus and boat connections close by.

New Town

STAY Hostel and STAY Hotel are both in the heart of the new town. We are a short walk from all that Rhodes town has to offer – shops for all budgets, art exhibitions, the beach, museums, a vibrant bar scene and so much more. When you want to go explore, by land or sea, the bus station and the harbour are close by.

Old Town

Rhodes Old Town, a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site, is a short distance from STAY Hostel and STAY Hotel on foot. You can walk along the sea front to reach it, or through the new town. Either way, you can be there within 10 minutes. It’s a living town as well as a historical gem. One visit is never enough, each time you go you will see something different.

Tourist Port

Another short walk will take you from STAY Hostel or STAY Hotel to the tourist port, for seaborne day trips. Explore Rhodes from the sea, take an excursion boat for as long or as short a trip as you wish, a few hours or the whole day. If you’d like to travel further, day trips are offered to other nearby Greek islands, such as Symi, or to Marmaris in Turkey.
