Good place will say might want to spend some money on the showers as you have to hold shower head and had broken door. Otherwise good place.


The Staff welcomed us very friendly and was very helpful.


I was in a 4 bed dorm that only had 3 keys. I spent 2 days waiting for the others in the room to come back. Otherwise the location can't be beat.


All stuffs are old. Many things don't work. wi-fi is too poor. You cannot connect into room. Breakfast includes only jam, not Nutella as they said. They give something looks like chocolate but it's not Nutella :)) Exept Yola ( cleaner ) everyone looks angry. I paid for 2-8. But came about 2 pm.on September 2 and had to left 7 earlier. They did not refund my last day money. They just "sorry ". And I' m sorry for I won't choose there never again. :)

Good location near plaka, acropolis, restaurants, market, outdoor cinema. Main Door locked in evenings, ring bell so secure in that way but no storage in rooms. Just mutual trust. Outdoor seating area is nice, free tea coffee bread at breakfast time. When i was there it was hot! Room was sweltering as 3 of us in small space. Walls are crumbling and plaster pieces would manage to end up on my bed each night. Im told for 17e thats good value in athens but id choose somwhere else next time..

Really delicious breakfast of greek style french toast included. You're right by the acropolis which is where you want to be! Rooms were really clean, we got a private room because we were arriving so late and there was also a sink and mirror in the room. Bathrooms were old but clean.


Staff were really friendly, the location could not be better, however, it was very run down. I have not stayed is such a run-down hostel for a while. Breakfast was also not very good

A very good place to stay with helpful staff. I can't imagine a more central location. Easy to get to by public transport. I have already recommended it to others and will go on doing so.

The bathroom seemed to be falling apart and the whole hostel smelled of cigarette smoke.


the clean sheets are a nice touch but the towel smell really bad and the showers were quite creepy and dirty


Clean, good care, good location. I recommend


Very cheap and staff were amazing, however poor facilities. There was no air con in my room, most bathrooms were out of soap and toilet paper, and you need to hold the shower nozzle. Worth the cheap price if you aren't too fussy


Great Location!! Staff were very helpful!


The staff were friendly and did everything we asked for. We liked the fact you could help yourself to cutlery etc as we got up late most days. The location was great. However, the electricity kept tripping out so there must be a problem with the electrics and we wished we had control of the a.c.


Nice outdoor area. Showers and toilets were not clean. Location was not really near anything.. Not too bad for cheap accommodation.


Due to a mistake in booking we were relocated without any problems. Very good hostel for this price, right in the center of town.

The hostel was nice, bathrooms a bit basic and not clean. Main issue is we had a room with AC and the person manning reception kept turning it off so (with 5 people in a room) we were SO hot during the night. Nice garden and cafe in the hotel and the location is perfect for sightseeing!
