Great hostel to explore Athens, it is super close to all the major attractions and night hotspots for great greek food. The hostel is attached to a little cafe and a cool sports bar where most of the guests hang out. The rooms are big and ours even had a terrace! The breakfast is a bit light, but besides that this is a great stay.


Staff were very cordial. Very good location. Value for money. Definite will recommend to others who are looking for budget accommodation in Athence.


Great place!! the staff is so friendly and facilities are great!

Best hostel I stayed in on my 2 month trip around Europe for sure. I stayed in the new building tho so I can't speak for the old one.

I ended up staying here for 5 nights. Hostel is really nice. Clean and very good location, close to major sites, public transport, cafe's etc. It is big, so you will always meet cool people to hang out with. Rooftop bar is great, althoug closes to early. Improvement would be to give each bed a socket, charging phones and camera's is a must. Rooms automaticaly lock and need keycard, but no personal lockers. Also breakfast was very meagre with jam, bread and eggs. Overal a very good stay!


This hostel was amazing. Upon arrival they upgraded our room to a suit for free. They also made a mistake when we paid and didn't take into account our deposit paid and when we talked to them about it they provided amazing service and gave us our money back. Room was clean and had a nice balcony. Amazing location. Would recommend to anyone. Awesome hostel owner!


Perfect location near sites and decent restaurants and bars. One of the best nights of sleep I've had in a hostel with very comfortable clean beds and cold air con. The hostel atmosphere is sort of odd with different buildings containing dif apartments, however the rooftop bar was hopping with a friendly bartender and a great view of the Parthenon. Hard to beat


There was a self catering kitchen in the room and a balcony. Really nice.


I really enjoyed my stay. I was greeted by friendly staff and they were helpful with directions at any time of the day. I was able to leave my luggage there prior to check in so I could explore Athens. The rooms were very clean and came with sheets and a pillow case. There was A/C but the remote was lost so we had to walk downstairs each night to borrow the remove. Location was exceptional, right in the middle of everything. Only problem - bathroom floors always wet but staff cleaned daily.


Excellent location. Friendly reception people. Loved how spacious the rooms are, couldn't find fault with the cleanliness. Would definitely recommend to friends visiting santorini!
