They overbooked on the night we stayed so we got a free upgrade into a studio room which was great. The rooftop bar also has a really nice atmosphere and a great view of the acropolis

Loved this hostel. Best experience I've had thus far. Staff are friendly and helpful. My room had some issues with the key but they sorted it out quickly. Top location, great view of the Acropolis as well as right in the heart of Athens next to Monastiraki Square (the main square). Wish I could have stayed longer!
The "free" walking tour organized at the hostel is great. It was the highlight of Athens. The roof top bar has a great view. We spent 4 nights here at the end of June and the the room was unbearably hot even with the pitiful air conditioner.
Awesome Rooftop Bar. Good place to stay a few days when passing through Athens.
This hostel was so much fun and we met awesome people at the rooftop bar! Great drinks specials, comfortable beds and air conditioned dorms, good WIFI in reception area and an awesome location near the Acropolis, metro, shopping and night life. Really convenient and fun place to stay :)
Perfect area. Nice rooftop bar to meet people. Liveably clean, bathrooms not so nice. Old grungy tiles with slightly sour shower curtains. I could deal with it with some flip flops on and I'm fairly clean. Rooms are spartan but have lockers (byo lock). Wifi only in reception.

Great hostel in an amazing location within walking distance to the main archeological sites and ruins in Athens, as well as the train station that takes you directly to and from the airport! Staff were lovely and rooms were cleaned every day. Rooftop bar is great to meet new people and breakfast provided made mornings much easier! Would definitely recommend!
The staff are completely lovely and eager to help. Great sized lockers and comfy beds. The rooftop bar is great for meeting people and the foyer is beautifully air conditioned! Thanks for a great stay!

Nothing wrong with this hostel except maybe the prices at the bar, a little steep in proportion with the rest of Athens. Good location right next to Athens flea markets. The only other noticeable thing was their obsession with being in the Famous 40 hostels. Posters and signs about it everywhere you turn. No need considering we were already staying there.
Amazing location! I love Athens it's a fabulous city! The hostel was good, a bit pricey. But If you are a lone traveller or are in a rush to see the city this place is worth the extra money just for it's locations. Awesome walking tour! Awesome roof top bar!
Not the greatest hostel, staff weren't helpful, wifi barely works, and the atmosphere was pretty dull while I was there. For the price I'd expect a lot more
Breakfast included. Rooftop bar is ok and the food is pretty reasonable.
Internet didn't work anywhere on phone or tablet Bit by a bug in bedroom, awoke in middle of night with swelling on neck Air conditioning failed to work and no solution offered
Our key cards never worked and we always had to go downstairs to have the receptionists let us into the room (they were always really friendly and helpful though and they did work on fixing the door, although we never had it work while we were there). Wifi was spotty and the breakfast was probably the saddest hostel breakfast I've ever seen. Good location though, and the rooms were clean.
We were thankful to have a 4 bed dorm to ourselves for the night (2 girls) which was a bonus. The shower room was very small and the wifi is only inthe hostel lobby which in this modern day you would expect better.
Awesome rooftop bar and view. Clean hostel and good facilities. A little on the expensive side but the view alone is worth it at night.
The rooms were extremely gross and smelt. The bathrooms were even worse, nothing was clean. Was one of the worst sleeps I've ever had. Wouldn't not stay here again
Have stayed in nicer places for the same $ but overall it was a good stay, key location and great rooftop bar
Athenstyle was one of the most comfortable stays during our trip. The rooftop bar had an incredible view and good food but we were also a block away from Monastiraki which had good artisan shopping areas, the metro, and some archaeological sites, a block away from some very cheap but delicious restaurants, and like 15 minutes from the Akropolis. The only problem we had was our shower flooded the first night but we quickly learned how to counter that. The people and hostel made us feel at home.
The location is great. The staff are helpful. Only complaint would be that you have to go into the lobby to get wifi, but it is open all the time, so not a huge deal. Reasonably priced. Also, the rooftop bar has an awesome view. Overall, recommended.
