No problems at all with the hostel, it was great. The view from the roof is excellent. Rooftop bar was great and fun, met some cool people.
Was a great place to stay in Athens! Just 1 block from metro, so easy to get too! Air conditioning! Good people! Great view from rooftop bar!

I stayed in the Studio's part of the Hostel, but it's very easy to get between the 2 building's. It's a great location and fantastic for meeting people, which for me is a big part of any travelling. The Rooftop bar and Sports bar are both good spots to hang out.

This is an Australian party hostel. When you book this hostel please bear in mind whether you have to be up early or really want a good nights sleep. The facilities are excellent but the people staying here are there to party so don't get annoyed about them coming in late or being nosy.
Nothing bad to say about this place. The highlight is the staff who is always friendly and helpful around the clock. Breakfast is small but to get additional things is cheap. Happy Hour is great and sports bar food and scene are awesome. Rooms are exactly what you need. Bathrooms clean. Location is in the heart of Acropoli, directly below the Parthenon. One of my favorite hostels!
The hostel is located in an amazing place, people at the reception were really helpful in everything I asked. The wifi connection could be better though, it disconnected itself randomly.
Ideal location, great atmosphere, lovely kitchen- lounge area, bar was good fun. Wifi in the rooms was a bit hit or miss though, felt cramped a bit in 6bed dorm and air con could only be controlled by going to reception, we all woke freezing during the night and had to unplug it at the mains to switch it off. Overall though in a really great location and a nice hostel.
Amazing stay here the location is prime in athens and it has a great environment to meet people. Great value for your money.
The roof top bar doesn't really live up to the hype but has a good view. Good location close to the metro and a heap of restaurants and bars. I was in a six bed dorm. The lockers aren't big enough for your bag so the room got quite cluttered. You have to go all the way down to reception to pick up the air con remote to adjust or turn it on and then return it. Bit of a mission from the higher floors. Breakfast was good and the staff were always helpful.
Great location, nice staff, pretty basic rooms, bathroom facilities were pretty poor.
The staff was really nice, the location is perfect, next to Acropolis. We did the walking tour to visit Athens, was the best way to discover the city and meet people from the hostel. Rooftop bar is really nice, and a good place to meet people before going out!
This hostel is excellent, very well located in Athens and with staff very helpful.
Perfect location, friendly staff. Great value for the money. Nice bar location, fantastic view.
Great social rooftop bar, with AMAZING view of the acropolis :) the rooms were clean
AMAZING hostel! Secure, clean, VERY nice and helpful staff. Rooftop bar overlooks Acropolis and is absolutely beautiful. Sports bar over at the lofts is very cool and a great place to wind down. I stayed at the lofts and it was perfect, not full of partying late teens/early 20somethings but amazing people you can actually have a conversation with (and then party). Super easy to get to via metro and these people will help you find anything and everything! Can't say enough good things about staff!
Really enjoyed my stay. All of the staff we very helpful and it was full of like-minded people. The bar on the rooftop has the most spectacular view of the acropolis!!!
Great location, awesome rooms and facilities, and even better staff who made me feel so welcomed and helped me out on numerous occasions. Definitely recommend staying here if you visit Athens!
