Everything you could need in one little block: a comfy bed, a good bar, nice cheap restaurant and a laundromat. There's a great atmosphere between this hostel and it sister hostel a few blocks away. Everyone meets up on the rooftop bar for drinks and heads out for dinner together. Really great community.


Très propre, des dortoirs bien aménagés Un personnel efficace et sympathique Un emplacement en plein coeur de la ville Le bémol : le petit déj un peu moyen Globalement : Très bon rapport qualité/prix


Air con was temperamental. Wifi was amazing!! Great staff. Included breakfast was not that great.


Within walking distance from all the sights. We didn't go out in Athens so couldn't comment on distance from nightlife.

Perfect hostel to visit the city and have a lot of fun.


An awesome hostel in a fantastic location. The staff are friendly and speak at least Greek and English. They offer a variety of tours and the two bars (Sports and Roof bar) are excellent.

Only stayed for a night in between my flight and ferry. Private room was big and spacious. Wifi was great. Rooftop bar was a great place to relax after a long flight.


Excellent location, very near the Acropolis at calm neighborhood, near the metro. Rooms have big, individual lockers (bring your padlock). Good security. Has 1 bathroom per 3 rooms (each floor), although one was always reserved to just one room and in the others were completely dirty. Staff wasn't very helpful, didn't readily give directions or tips. Has a kitchen, but the oven is broken and the hob requires some pyrotechnic abilities to be turned on. Has free wifi but PCs are paid. Overall good


En terminos generales es un hostal bien ubicado en vista q esta muy cerca del museo, Patenon y de templo de Zeus. En una zona tranquila pero muy cerca de restaurantes y comercio. En cuanto al edificio si es antiguo y tiene deficiencias como el elevador q es muy angosto solo entran 2 personas, sin maletas, adicionalmente en las cuartos no te ofrecen toallas ni jabon o shampoo para los baños, el desayuno es muy limitado, entre otros detalles menores.


First time we stayed at the hostel we stayed at the studio, which was perfect! Nice rooms, with a bathroom inside each room (one bathroom for 6 beds) and a nice breakfast (not too big, but you can buy adicional things for one euro). Second time, we weren't at the studio, and I think there were not enough bathrooms..only one bathroom for 3 bedrooms with 6 beds each (also, the sink, shower and toilet were all together, which means if someone is taking a shower you can't use the toilet).


I was only there a couple hours but seemed a good hostel


A very well located hostel which offers a good €6 walking tour and a relaxed, fun vibe. Breakfast is very average and the administration of the air con in rooms is strange and bound to cause problems in dorms; control is held at reception for which anyone in the room can obtain and change the temperature or turn off.


Si el baño del cuarto 9 es exclusivo recomendaría poner chapa de seguridad que se abra con la misma llave del cuarto para evitar que otros huéspedes lo utilicen. Sólo estuve dos días y siempre tuve que esperar a que otras personas que no estaban en el cuarto 9 lo desocuparán (a pesar que en la puerta está escrito que sólo es para huéspedes del cuarto 9). El agua de la regadera se sale y el piso siempre está mojado y sucio.


El mejor ubicado!...un poco caro en relacion a los otros, aunque la ubicacion y la atmosfera y servicio compensan un poco. Lo recomiendo


Just a few steps away from the entrance to the Acrópolis. Nice bedrooms, clean hostel and helpful staff. The view of the Acrópolis from the top of the hostel is just amazing. Definitely the place to stay if you are a back packer going to Athens.


I stayed in the Studios and it seems more a hotel than a hostel. A couple of minutes from the Acropoli it's in a perfect spot for exploring the rest of the city. There is also a bar where you have different activities every night like karaoke for meeting the rest of the travellers. The staff is really helpfull with different activities you can do around Athens: delphi, cape sunio or the cruise around the islands (Aegina, Poros and Hydra)


Stayed in the studio building in which was all very nice. The rooftop bar at the other building is real cool. Location of both buildings is perfect
