PROS: Cheap and great location close to metro. CONS: Hostel in desperate need of a renovation, pipes shake wall when tap is on in middle of night. Hostel is used by a lot of schools so be prepared for noisy kids throughout the night.

The receptionist is very friendly and helpful. The linens in the room is clean and comfortable. However, the location is quite bad because it locates in some place that looks like having criminal?

Not insane, but very reasonable option for a hostel. It was a little quiet while we were there but there's a common area which is likely good for socialising. Location is a little intimidating (as far away) but when you get to know you're surroundings isn't a far walk from anything. Streets feel a little rough, but weren't a problem for us. Beds are good, good lockers, just worth noting the room had only one key so you have to drop it at reception. Good for groups, decent value

Some reviews say this hostel is in a sketchy area, IT DEFINITELY IS. It's about a mile to walk to the nearest sights, which isn't bad but that walk is very seedy so just be cautious. The hostel itself was fine, very bare bones. The blankets had weird stains though seemed to be clean. We'd say the price definitely reflects the experience.

This is a cute little hostel with the nicest staff! The rooms are pretty standard, but if you looking for a safe, reliable place to stay in Athens and you're on a budget, look no further! Its close to the metro, a laundromat, food, and an official athens open bus tour stop. This is the best bang for the buck you can get!

The bed was very comfortable and the sheets very clean. Will stay there again.

The hostel is well located but rooms and facilities are poorly supported. I only recommed it if you are traveling with school trips or some similar trip.

The hostel itself is pretty good. Good price for comfortable beds and decent wifi. If you're arriving late at night, don't rely on the metros being open. We ended up having to walk a few k through a kind of sketchy part of town at 2AM (thank god I had data or we never would have found it). But the staff are super helpful and very nice

Very close to the metro which was useful to get around. Staff were friendly. Some sheets were stained, but overall great value for money if you're not fussy.

Wifi was slow and the 3 computers at the lobby didn't work, the building looks very old and creepy not like the photos shown on their page.
