Great hostel. Very close to everything and really easy to find. Room was clean with big lockers and several power outlets. Breakfast was a bit limited.
Great view from the bar! Extremely helpful staff!
Staying at Athenstyle wasn't much like the hostel experiences we had in other cities. Hostel was very corporate, everything had a surcharge/deposit! Room was basic but functional, although the bathroom floor had a huge puddle of water when we arrived. Biggest problem was that we weren't told that we needed to get (and pay deposit for) an air conditioning remote control from reception, so we spend the first night sweating unnecessarily. Location good, breakfast very basic.
Wifi only in reception, good room, nice enough beds!
A good hostel and a fantastic location. The wifi was a bit slow but otherwise the facilities were great.

Unfortunately Athens is usually a common stop over point so not many people stay for long periods of time so it can be hard to become pals with people when you're travelling solo. However, if you are staying a few nights, Pluto's tour of Athens was a brilliant way to meet new people and see all the surrounding areas! I found the reception staff to be rude and unhelpful, and everything came at an additional cost. Wifi wasn't great but could connect in the evenings.
Great hostel: we loved the location and the bar with the view. We had a problem with the air conditioning - we had to change the room and the person on duty at the reception was not particularly nice about it. The next room unfortunately also had AC problem (the remote was not working), but we were just too tired to deal with it.
Great rooftop bar and friendly staff. A/C was also superb! Felt the room was a little pricy though, and it was very loud if you're next to the street.
This isn't a bad place, but it's just really overpriced for the service they provide. Wifi only works in common area. Very basic breakfast. Dorms are spacious but basic. Pillows are awful. The bathrooms are awful and there's never any toilet paper. For the price you pay I think they should step up their game. Great location, nice rooftop bar. Lobby is always crowded because it's the only place wifi works. Be prepared for hoards of Aussie busabouters as this is the hostel they use.
Stayed here for 1 night, rooms were in another building next door. Room was fine although had a pancake pillow :( didnt get to the bar on the top level but I hear its fun. Close to the train station and the square.
Did not like my stay here. They do not provide wifi in rooms and it is only available in the lobby which was extremely inconvenient considering some rooms were in a separate building. The quality is extremely bad and there were days where I couldn't connect to the wifi and instead had to activate roaming. Despite everyone being in the lobby, there was no real atmosphere as everyone was there simply to use the wifi. One morning, I woke up to a blocked toilet and the room was flooded.
We only stayed in Athens for one night but I could easily have stayed longer! The hostel is only about 10 min walk from the Acropolis and Agora and is super close to the metro. The rooftop bar is pretty great. Rooms are spacious and clean.
Internet was just bad. Other than that always having to put the card to allow electricity in the room can be a bit pain in the a** cuz if the person who has the card inserted leaves during the night, no one will, for example, recharge the cellphone. other than that was good. Breakfast was great, and the guy taking care of it is really friendly
Great hostel, very central location, 10 bed dorms are very spacious with lockers, air con and acropolis views. Roof top bar is very social. Wifi only in common area. Most staff were very helpful except the second time I stayed here and my dorm was double booked. Guy pretty much blamed me for this when it was clearly their fault. Apart from that I would still highly recommend it
Good roof top bar. Wifi was handy. Right near train station and flea market
Depending on what building you're in your experience will be very different. One is dingy, no wifi and has a cat guarding the door. The main building has the rooftop terrace (unreal views!), good wifi and a nice common room
Athenstyle was definitely a great hostel to stay at - good location, helpful staff, comfy beds and great view of the Acropolis!! I stayed for one night before my busabout trip, and would stay there again.

This hostel charges a lot for crappy beds, showers that don't work properly and the worst pillows I've encountered.
Our bag was stolen from inside the hotel reception. The staff member at the time offered no help at all!! Will never stay here again!
Staff helpful Rooftop bar good Wifi unreliable Shower head broken Noisy/echoey from hallway at night No lockers available Good location
