Well the wifi was good but in a room of 4 there were only two outlets, the area is a bit ghetto but there's lots of cops, everybody was like oh this is a bad area, but I did not feel unsafe walking around at night... Lots of bars walking distance so it was cool. Staff was really cold, and not very knowledgeable about the city. Guy told me it takes 40 min to the ferry docks (took20 by metro) he made it seam like it's really far lol ... Skip the breakfast, there's a strip club next door lol


Put more lights in the bathroom. Only a 15 minute walk to the Acropolis.

Very comfortable and clean. It's a hotel but they have special rooms designated for bunks. Overall really happy with the facilities and location. Not a place to be at if you want to try and meet other travelers (not a real hang out space at all or space to party) but a excellent accommodation.


Great breakfast! Great location! Helpful staff! Its in a sketchy area in Athens and a police officer told me I should be careful walking around the area around the hostel at night because its dangerous but most of Athens appears sketchy so Im not sure if you could find a hostel in a more secure location. An upgrade they should consider is shower curtains because its difficult not to flood the bathrooms when taking a shower.


Decent location near a convenient Metro. Really clean room. Only downsides are that bathrooms don't really lock, only a couple of outlets per room and no lockers in the dorms. Other than that it was good value. Would stay there again if backpacking through Athens


It's a bit of a walk from all the things to do in Athens, but the hotel itself is excellent. Friendly staff, good food and drinks at the bar, and a safe environment.


I stayed here for a week. Staff were consistently unfriendly and seemed annoyed whenever I'd ask directions or whatever. Location is okay. On the metro lines to Pireaus and the airport, and an easy walk to all of Athens's greatest hits. BUT it's beside a porn theater that attracts gross dudes lingering outside all day and night, and it's a few blocks from the anarchist quarter where police don't dare venture (but you'll probably be fine).


Great wifi (good enough to even Skype from the rooms), not a bad location (close to metro and not too long a walk to main sights), good breakfast. Nice staff and very modern and clean place with AC! Drawbacks: close to no atmosphere - it's more of a hotel in which some rooms have bunkbeds); no lockers; small room; not enough outlets.


Reserved a 6-person room and got put in a tiny tiny tiny attic person room instead. There was no room to move or store 4 person's belongings. I had to sleep with my bags on my bed. Also a tiny washroom, without a mirror, max 1 m sq. Bed was dirty and had hairs all over it. Had to take an unfinished dark staircase to climb up to the attic rooms. Rest of the rooms looked better when I walked by, but don't take the attic room! Good location.


It's location is really good very close to the omonia station but little bit dangerous at night It's clean and staffs are helpful

The hostel is situated in the middle of Athens near to the metro. It's clean, the breakfast is above average for a hostel and there is a member of staff at reception 24 hours a day therefore it's safe. The reception staff were also helpful when I booked a one day cruise. I would stay again.


This hostel was like a hotel. The wifi worked really well and the it is close to the metro station. The breakfast which was included in the price was really deliscious.


Great wifi, great service, delicious breakfast, clean, helpful staff, loved this hostel!


The hostel is located very close to the Omonia metro station which is very convenient, whereas walking to the center of Athens, e.g. Acropolis and Plaka takes about 15-20 minutes. The atmosphere is not so great though, the room is not entirely sound proof and since the hostel is located amid the restaurants and shops we heard the noise even past midnight.


Good value for money, perfect location, staff were very helpful and friendly, room was immaculately clean, so I highly recommend it to anyone travelling on a tight budget.


We had a great stay here! The street that the hotel is located is a little shady and I can see why some users felt concerned however, I never felt unsafe. You are very close to the Acropolis, fun restaurants, and markets. The room was very clean and the staff were wonderful! If you are looking for a safe, clean, and low cost place to stay that is near everything I recommend Hotel Cosmopolit!

A bit difficult to find and one of the surrounding establishments was rather seedy, but it was great for the price and very close to the metro which is just what I needed.


good location, 10-15 minutes walking from Acropolis, 3 minutes from Omonia metro station. Receptionists very helpful providing information on how to travel to main train stations and bus stations. Rooms quite small and bunker beds not really comfortable if you have to take the upper one. Toilet and shower together, so floor always wet. In any case, good value for money (not expensive) and breakfast included (fantastic greek salad, yoghourt, cereals, bread, marmalade, tea, coffee, orange juice).


This is a valuable staying. The location is perfect and the staffs are friendly. I recommand you guys to consider staying here when you want to visit Greece.


The staff was very friendly and helpful, the room was very clean and spacious,the location is central. Nothing to complain about,would defenitely reccomend it.
