I stayed in the Athens Studio instead, no idea why. But the rooms are newer and cleaner. There is even a small pantry in the room for budget travelers. And the Fish Cake Restaurant downstairs serve nice and decently priced food. Then there is a sport bar with sports show every night, another rooftop bar at the other building. The location is wonderful too, walking distance to acropolis and the metro. The staffs are also very friendly and would help you with many things.
Stay for a week, was a good place to stay, like having a balcony and staff was very helpful!!
Overall this was a nice hostel. I stayed in a 6-bed suite which had an ensuite bathroom, as well as a small kitchenette. The rooms were clean, and the beds were decent. The bedding all seemed clean. The free breakfast was fine for the cost. Two hard boiled eggs and a couple rolls. Nothing fancy, but many free hostel breakfasts don't even have eggs, so this is a decent breakfast to get your day started. If you want more, you can purchase other stuff for cheap (fruit, yogurt, etc.).
Only negative was the €5 charge for my lost (mid stay) electronic key card. This wasn't mentioned during check in and they didn't even collect them when I checked out (just had a stack for them with way fewer cards than folks checking out) so I don't know why I had to pay €5 to replace it.
