About the location is wonderful

Decent place, no locks on lockers in dorms so bring your own! Towels too.. Great location though and lovely staff. Breakfast was a bit meagre but there are tons of yummy resturants close by in the plaka if you need more. Rooms were spacious and clean and fairly quiet. Easy to find the hostel but make sure you go to the right one - not athens studios!!

Nice, clean hostel with a fantastic atmosphere. We got "upgraded" to the studio which was a few streets away. Easy enough. It was super clean and had a convenient bar downstairs as well as fish and chips restaurant.

The staff were amazing and resourceful. The location is amazing with a rooftop patio overlooking the Acropolis. This is definitely worth the stay for the money paid!

Great location. Central to the Acropolis and other ruins so you don't need to use the Metro unless going out in the city. As far as amenities, it was great to have a kitchen to use and free breakfast. It is a party hostel so don't expect much sleep.

Good spot . Charged us for missing our stay : 24 hour cancelation policy. Other than that great . Right next to acropolis . Guy in our room bough a girl a drink and was charges 100 euro by the bar - watch out for thrives. No common room at the building. Staff were super helpful. Would stay here again

The bar on the rooftop is really great. The rooms and bathrooms are good, except, our 4 bed dorm only had 3 lockers (strange) The staff were a mixed bunch, some were super helpful, friendly and knowledgable, others not so. The kitchen is very limited- there were no forks- not even one. Overall the hostel is good, but quite pricey.

One of the best hostels I've ever stayed in! The location could not be any better and the staff was very helpful. The atmosphere is super fun and the roof top bar is a great way to meet people! I would absolutely recommend this hostel to anyone!

The staff was very nice. Excellent location, 5 mins walk to Acropolis and close to almost all attractions. One thing is that the room is a little bit small.

Great place, thoroughly recommend. Just need to buy some fitted shower curtains so that the curtains go down into the shower so that the bathroom doesn't flood everyte someone has a shower.

The hostel is very close to the Acropolis and Plaka area. You are welcomed with a shot of ouzo on the terrace bar (with view over the Acropolis). Staff is friendly. Toilets are cleaned every day. The breakfast could be a bit richer (at least milk and cereals could be added).

Way too expensive for what you get. Not too helpful staff. The rooftop bar is nice though.

If youre looking for a great location in Athens where you can meet up with other people this is the place to be. Very close to the metro.

I absolutely love this place! I stayed in the studios, which has the ever so convenient cafe, laundromat and sports bar(with good food). Was almost right in Plaka, with Back packers right around the corner, we were welcome to the sweet roofotop bar to watch the sun set over Acropolis. Met a lot of great people here and would without a doubt stay here next time in Athens!!!
