I stayed here for 4 nights and ended up extending even in low season when it was quiet. The staff are really friendly and helpful. It's super clean and rooms are cleaned daily. Breakfast wasn't the best, but everything else was great, including the roof top bar.
The staff answered all questions immediately. The location is amazing, literally two minutes (with a massive backpack) from Monastraki Metro station, Hadrien's library and other ruins. The roof top bar is a great place to go even if you just want to watch the sun set over Athens.
The check out it s so early. We have to pay to let the luggage. No heaten in bedroom
The staff were great, location good. I gave very poor for the facilities because the owners' obvious focus on making money. The internet was absolutely terrible. A lot of sites just wouldn't load, like trip advisor, hostelworld....well half of all google searches, really. Want to send a photo on Whatsapp? Forget it! They obviously know this and don't care. No outside food or drinks, annoying 10 am checkout, token breakfast of only a 2 hour period, just felt greedy. Wouldn't stay there again
Breakfast was simple. It's nice the common rooms aren't on the same floors as the rooms so you aren't bothered of you want to go to bed early. Most of the staff was great, but had a few members who were not very helpful or didn't speak English well.
I've worked there for a while 6 years ago so not very objective, but this hostel has the best location, staff and facilities i've ever seen in a hostel. The rooftop bar with view on the acropolis is not only cheap but also offers the best view of athens, and you can meet really cool people there. They have every sort of room you could wish for, so just head up and book it :) Very central, direct from the airport by metro (45 minutes) and yeah just cool :)
The staff here are friendly and really helpful. The location is easy to find and central enjoyed the walking tour. The wifi is a little bit of a nuisance. I will be back
It is frustrating that the kitchen closes at nine... And you can't eat your ow food in the common areas. It's clear they want you to buy their food at the bar but as a long term traveler that's very frustrating. The rooms were a bit small as well but worth it for the location.
My travel group and I stayed in Athens style one night then used their automated lockers for a weekend. Everything was awesome. The front desk was helpful, helped us print flight documents, get a cab, and provided maps. Room was clean. Wifi worked great and the rooftop bar is AWESOME. Spectacular views of the acropolis and literally a block away from the main square and train station. If I go back to Athens I will stay again!
Great location! Staff was very helpful. I was there during the off-season so it wasn't too lively of a place but I'm sure otherwise it's a more energetic atmosphere. Roof top bar had great views and I really liked that they made it "winter friendly". My only complaint is that the wifi sucks. When using my phone even in the main area it was extremely slow and I wasn't able to access anything other than fb messenger and email. No web-brower or google. Others had the same problem.
Good place great personal but showers dirty, mold in the walls and curtains and way too much mosquitos because of the dirty bathroom.
Excellent location..very close to main market - monasraki and acropolis and othet tourist locations
Very good location but the rooms are pretty small. The wifi is not always reliable. Bathroom is also very small. Probably would opt for one of the private rooms to make it more comfortable if you are planning to stay for a while. The best part is the rooftop bar with incredible views of the Acropolis.
Yikes. This place had mold in the shower and the 4 person room they put me in was so small I could reach out and touch the person next to me while laying down. The walls were paper thin so you could hear all the street noise and people coming back at 3am. Great location is the only reason to stay here. Would definitely book somewhere else in the same area.
the best spot in athens in the middle of busy area... resto shopping tourist attraction... roofbar is the must with amazing staff and the view of athens in the day for brunch or at night time is a must see discount for 3nights is pretty cool and the staff at the reception helps with smile nothing to say except see u next time
The hostel was located really center, easy for airport, easy for museum, and acropolis also to just get around in genral. The rooftopbar is also a great view, and happy hour. The only problem is the internet, it cuts you off and then you have to login with a password and it just quit annoying. But once your logged in, it works well. The staff is friendly and very helpful.
This hostel was super cute! Really nice common area but the rooftop bar area is much smaller than suggested online. The bar was very weird and the woman working at the bar along with the group of solely middle aged men chilling in there was super uncomfortable. I decided not to go back. Cheap happy hour but if you're alone i wouldn't suggest this place or Athens in general.. As a young woman walking alone I didn't feel safe at all. cool sights though
