This is my favorite hostel to date! Very nice, well kept facilities. The staff was super friendly and helpful. The bar in the studio portion of the hostel was super convenient and a great place to hang out and meet other travelers at. I traveled with three other people and we rented one of the private four person suites which was almost the same price as the dorms -- worth it!
The location is fantastic. I've been staying in a lot of hostels over the last few months and this one was by far the best. The staff was friendly and helpful and the rooms were spacious and clean. The breakfasts was a little bit of a disappointment but there are so many good breakfast places in walking distance it didn't really matter. I would definitely stay here again.

Near from station and stuff was very kind.Wi-fi was working very well.
Great location next to the major Athens attractions. Huge con- I was really looking forward to the rooftop bar, it is the major feature of this hostel and is the main photo of this hostel, but it is closed for the off season. No where in the hostel description webpage does it say this. Only until after you have put down a deposit does it say it in the confirmation email. At the very least close the bar but have the rooftop still accessible. Will not be recommending this hostel.
Really nice staff, awesome location. Great value.
The included breakfast was terrible (stale bread, rotten boiled eggs) the facilities where quite dirty and there were hardly any powerpoints in the room. The lockers weren't big enough to fit your bags in, only some stuff. The location was good. But try and stay at the studios because they seemed a bit better. Wouldn't stay here again.
The best hostel ever!! The staff is fantastic, the rooms are clean, the bar is fun, the location is unbeatable! I checked in and immediately felt at home. I made friends here who I ended up with in Santorini later. Don't even bother looking at anything else, this is where you want to stay!
Excellent service, centrally located with a very welcoming staff. Would recommend it to anyone visiting Athens.
The hostel (main) is located cloesed to almost everything such as metro, restaurants, museum ..ets And 2nd location is not so far from main place yet it has better environment. However, sending customer to some place else(even though the place is under same management) made me feel little bit awkward, especially, when I was so tired due to red eye flight ( Maybe I am expecting too much from HOSTEL).Nevertheless, I have enjoyed my staying in the hostel, and will go back
To meet fellow solo backpackers, head up to the rooftop bar!
Loved this place! It was really good for solo travellers as the walking tour and the rooftop bar provide a great way to meet awesome people. The hostel is really well situated in Athens and you can easily walk to all the main attractions.
We arrived really late and when we got there we were told that 'oh your reservation is in our other building' , this was pretty annoying as I feel they should have told me this in an email before we arrived so that we could have gone straight there instead of walking around for ages ending up at the wrong place and having to walk further at 2am to get to where we were actually supposed to be. Room and wifi was good. Location is good, close to lots of restaurants and shops and to Acropolis.
Best location ever, just a few steps from the Akropolis. However, we have booked the hostel and ended up staying at the suites (1 block distance) where there was no space for interaction with other travellers (apart from a bar outside of the place). Apart from that, we also had problems in our room with overbooking 2 nights out of the 3 that we have stayed there. Apart from that, it is a great place a worth the price you pay! I highly recommend the rooftop bar happy hour and the seafood platter.
I loved staying at this hostel, and everyone i have talked to had the same feeling. The rooftop bar is great with an amazing view. The staff is friendly and helpful. The breatfast is included in price, and was quite good
Very nice location, great facilities, showers in the bathroom is a mess and lockers in the room are medium size. The sport bar is very good...and staff in bar and restaurant amazing
This hostel was great and the two bars were an excellent way to meet people. Plus it was so close to the Acropolis, which is basically the main thing to see in Athens.
The location for this hostel is perfect. Its easely accesable is very close to all the main sights and there are plenty restaurants close by. There are two buidings at this hostel, I stayed at Athens studios. The drawback of Athens studios does not have a common area. So if you want to socialise you need go to the other buiding where they have a rooftopbar or go to theit sprts bar. Because of this the atmosphere at Athens studios is olmost non existent.
