You get what you pay for. Facilities aren't too bad but don't expect anything amazing. The owners were very helpful with providing us maps, wifi and advice, however as three young women travelling together it wasn't the safest area to be in at night, and it was very hot with only one fan in the room.

The staff were lovely, the room was nice and it was extremely central. As other comments have said a little dodgy after dark but from what I've seen most of Athens is like that to be honest. The only slight problem was lack of air con which made the room a bit like a sauna. However you can't really beat it for the price!

Don't believe the pictures, I don't know where they we're taken but it was t where we stayed. It's nice that you get an apartment but the kitchen it not well equipt with utensils so it is difficult to cook. It was hot whilst we we're there and it was unbearable, there is no way to get a draft from the windows and it's seriously uncomfortable. We were lucky and only had to share with one other couple, I dread to think whatnot would have been like if it was full.

Hosts were extremely pleasant and welcoming. The room was very nice, but far too hot due to no ac. The kitchen was a little dirty in places but stocked well. The area is a little dodgy and we were advised by more than one person including the owner to be careful late at night. However only a short walk to the metro and things were fine again.

Very friendly and helpful, breakfast was included. Quite hard to find however as the building has no advertising for 'Athens Colorful Urban Home' but instead only recognisable from the name of the building 'Kamateroy - 3'.

Great place for people on a budget, the staff are great and the rooms are big. It is worth noting however that the hostel is situated in a fairly rough area so if you stay here don't go out too late at night.

Really nice staff, nice place, very cheap for the room you get. The breakfast is very small, but you have coffee and good bread so it is not that bad. The neighboorhood is nice during the day, there is an open market really close, but be careful during the night.

Very bad area!

Staff was nice, our room was clean and the breakfast was complimentary and pretty good. It's walking distance from the Acropolis, the Archeological Museum and good metro access. However, I wouldn't recommend walking around after dark.

This place is in a bit of a dodgy looking location but its nice inside. the staff are great and gave us a double room then charged us LESS for it then hostelworld mentioned ... the only downside about this place was the shared bathrooms.... people...when you are SHARING a bathroom and shit all over the toilet, how about cleaning it up and showing some respect for others? Other than that pig, the place was great and we'd def stay again

We loved it here! The staff was so friendly you would think they were your best friends. The breakfast was god albeit small, but it's served right on your floor and late into the morning! The strongest coffee I ever had! I would love to stay here again. We enjoyed it so much we got another night!

Miglen was a perfect host and so helpful with where to go. I highly reccomend the local markets (ladies beware of the men in the meat market though!). Don't expect a full breakfast, but what was provided was lovely. No common area so t was difficult to meet anyone. The kitchen came in handy. Super close to metro stations and walking distance to anywhere.

Absolutely lovely place with wonderful helpful people running it. It is in a slightly dodgy neighborhood but I never felt unsafe or at risk.

Can be a little hard to find despite good location, but staff is very friendly and welcoming. They will allow you to use internet for free and breakfast, although basic is also free.

One of the only things we had a problem with was the heat. The rooms at night were quite chilly. Other than that, it was a good bed and breakfast.

Definitely recommend this place. Our room was beautiful and very clean. The staff was welcoming and the Greek coffee for breakfast was superb (maybe cause I really like Greek coffee). The area might not look perfectly safe at night, but we had no problems at all and I wouldn't think you're not safe there!
