Personal comments
greeks usually speak good english, although not in the administration offices. For people who have to make a residence permit it needs lot of patience and nerves, cause nobody really knows where you should go, what you should do, and when, and how to explain it, cause they don speak english

Personal comments
It is not too difficult to find accomodation in private flat, which taken with a group of people may be a better solution. The student residence is really poorly equipped and not in really good condition, but if somebody likews the social life it is still a good option
