Wonderful rooms at a great price in a great location

Everything was great except for a few small things: the shower was a bit problematic (water was not very hot), the toilet didn't flush and the person who cleaned up after breakfast was a little rude. Otherwise, a really excellent hostel.

+ very nice hostel, staff, location.. - bed room so small and crowdy, noisy during the night

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!

Good central location which was easy to get to and made a good base in the city.

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.

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!
