The Hostel and your stay

Richardson House, Robinson House, and Shear House
Richardson and Robinson Houses are comfortable modern buildings, named after Rufus B. Richardson, the first director of the Corinth Excavations, and Henry Robinson, the director who restored yearly excavations to Corinth in 1959.  Shear house is a quaint, rustic house built by T. L. Shear Sr. in 1925 and is situated among the monuments of the archaeological site. 

Students and scholars studying material from the Corinth excavations or archaeological sites in the vicinity are welcome to stay in the comfortable hostel.  We have living accommodations for up to seventeen people in single and double occupancy rooms.  Two rooms have private bathrooms and Shear House can take a family of four.  Limited laundry facilities are available twice a week for no charge. Potential visitors should reserve well in advance by contacting the Assistant Director.  

Meals are served communally in Hill House, Monday through Friday, year round. The daily meal schedule is:

Breakfast- 7:30 to 8:30am (7:00 to 7:30am during excavation season)
Lunch- 12:30 to 2:30pm
Ouzo- 7:00pm
Dinner- 7:30 to 8:10pm service is available only for three or more people.

Room and board is subsidized at a rate of 39 euros per day payable in Euro in Corinth or by certified US dollar check at the School in Athens.

Visitors should note that the hostel and research facilities are closed during excavation season (from early April to June 30) and during vacation periods (September 1 to 30, and December 15 to January 15).  Should the hostel have no vacancies, the village of Ancient Corinth offers three comfortable hotels.
