Overall a good hostel. The price is very cheap, but it is still only a 15-20 minute walk to the Acropolis and is also very close to a metro and a supermarket. The only down side of this hostel was that it was rather dirty, especially in the kitchen.
Friendly staff, good location, clean facilities. I only stayed for one night, but I would recommend this hostel to anyone heading to Athens.
It wasn't bad but not the best hostel , location is not too far from main area but in sketchy looking neighborhood Good if its a cheaper option, staff r friendly
Nice atmosphere, a lot of travelling people to talk to :) Rooms not so nice, pretty small and the beds are really uncomfortable. But on the plus side there's a private bathroom in every room! The kitchen was okay equipped, the outside area was a nice spot to meet people. Staff was friendly.
WIth Very low price hostels you have to expect it will be "Basic", But if only the staff were friendlier -this can make even the most basic of hostel experiences more positive . I had two bookings and cancelled one too late (my bad), so they sent me an email authorising me to use the night (they charged to my visa ) when I got back from the Islands- when I arrived they told me to produce the email as though I was making it up. And 1 power outlet in a room of 6, really????
Staff was helpful, although I didn't spend too much time inside the hostel, the atmosphere and facilities looked good to me. Easily accessible from airport through metro, if you know where you are going exactly. Almost great.
The staff was excellent - warm-hearted people and very kind. The room was ok, basic, but it was ok for 2 nights. The location is very good. It's easy to find the hotel, as long as you read carefully the directions.
the location is very good, close to 2 metro stations and easy to get around the famous spots. however I couldn't really get sleep during my stay as the street is very noisy, people were talking until late midnight, besides I can almost hear all sounds within the building such like people chatting, open doors, toilet flashing etc.
This hostel is basic, standard kitchen facilities, poor room key system (there is only one key for the room), bathroom per room, uncomfortable matress (bed bugs!). I would only recommend this place for a few nights, its budget and a simple hostel so you cant expect to much from it anyway.
