Rooms and bathrooms feel a bit cramped and small, location is great, right next to metro station, lots of great restraints and bars within close walking distance. Rooftop bar is great with great views!

This hostel is perfect for party lover. Rooftop was amazing, cheap beer and nice view to Acropolis. Location is perfect. Just few steps from metro station and center to everything you must see in Athens. My room was spacious for 6 people with balcony. It's so safe 24/7 so no worry about roaming around the area or even arrive late at night. Breakfast is too simple; bun, boiled eggs, and coffee tea. This hostel can be loud because of the rooftop bar so be prepared a bit. Definitely recommend !!

This hostel is amazing! Their rooftop bar has an incredible view of the Acropolis and I made some great friends. Breakfast is included but ends early so make sure to set your alarm. Great energy and vibe about the place. Good location to all major attractions.

Decent hostel in a good location. The rooms are spacious and clean. No separate shower in the bathroom so water gets all over the place. Biggest complaint is that there is no common space for people the relax and meet. The rooftop bar and sports bar are good places to have a drink, but you shouldn't be forced to sit in a bar just to meet and talk to other travelers. I also think it's ridiculous to have a 50 euro minimum for credit cards.

The hostel was good but what really made it stand out where the bar staff in both the sports bar and the rooftop bar, thanks girls. Recommend the cafe too the food was very good. Breakfast was rubbish, info was OK, walking tour is well worth the 6 euro......please ask Greece to sort out a ferry schedule so that people not on a package tour can actually plan a trip.

stuff was very nice and friendly but quite busy,. could not ask the things I needed to know, pity I had to pay for using the PC (internet), the room was stinky, I suppose the bad pipes in Greece, but we didnt get any feedback after reporting it like sorry guys we are going to fix it or whatever, overall a lovely place to stay, would stay again for the money, location and little breakfast included, also laundry room and cafe and bar in the same building - big plus, also the roof-bar great thing

Overall very nice place. However, very unhelpful when we emailed questions to them - simply referred us to their website or other websites than answer a question. Also, certain staff members were much more helpful than others. One brown/long haired girl was very helpful however other staff made us feel stupid when asking certain questions. Included breakfast was also VERY basic - only toast and hard boiled eggs.

The experience was overall very positive. The only thing is that in the Athens Studios, the one glass pane is not enough for the shower. Water goes everywhere and everything gets wet!

Excellent location and structure, kind staff. There was one point that made upset, I had booked for three days, from wednesday to friday. Because it was broken in two books, I had to ckeck out by 10h on thursday and checkin again by 15h. Tottaly unecessary, because the hostel was not fully booked, in my room there was 4 empty beds.
