There was a lovely communal garden area which served a free breakfast in the mornings Which was a great start to the day. It was in an amazing location which meant you could just walk to most of the main attractions.

Genuinely enjoyed our time here. We stayed for one night only in order to site see and it was perfect for that. The location was walking distance to just about everything as very convenient access to public transportation. It wasn't the nicest hostel but it had great wifi and strong air condition which is all we wanted at this point. Would recommend to travelers who aren't looking to hang out in their room all day.

Very nice hostel and great location at walking distance to the vibrant Syntagma square and the Acropolis and a very nice, clean place to stay as well. Just follow the instructions as said and you will have no problem finding it! Value for money but it would be nice to improve a little bit the breakfast since I could only enjoy bread with nutella and a glas of milk (juice and cereals were finished or missing). But overal, a great place to stay with friendly 24 hour staff.

The first thing I noticed how unprofessional and rude the staff was, the place is so dirty and when I went use the shower a big cockroach was right on the shower...that's not it, I had to choose between charging my phone or turn on the fan (the air conditioner didn't work), because that room had only ONE outlet for electric...

Clean and spacious room. Lockers in each room also very helpful. Wonderful location from sightseeing spots and stations

There was no sope in the restrooms or at the rooms for handwashing. This was highly criticizable. The hostel had a nice and cosy backyard.

The location of this hotel is great. Plaka is a lovely area- you can walk everywhere. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The toilets and showers could be cleaned more regularly. We found the downstairs showers and toilets better than the upstairs one. Wifi was weak- had to sit close to reception to use it. Simple yet nice breakfast included: bread, spreads, French toast, tea and coffee. Affordable, simple accommodation.

Rough around the edges, but it is a hostel at the end of the day. Perfect location for a cheap stay in Athens. Don't get excited about the breakfast included.

My room smelled like cat pee mixed with mold... the shower had an old pair of underwear in them for two days, the bathrooms were honestly disgusting. And a lumpy bed to sleep on. Don't stay here I'm sure there's better in Athens...

Beautiful building in a great location. Rooms were stuffy though and there was only one functional shower. Beverages available were in a beer/soda machine and no breakfast. Don't use the directions you get from hostel world to find it though because the road they suggest has a sign only in Greek. It is also easier to get to from the acropolis station. Look at your map.

The good: Near Syntagma Sq and Acropolis The bad: Old mattress. Not to clean - the floor of my room was sandy/dusty and there were cockroaches - more than twice! Kitchen not so functional. If you arrive in the dark you might miss the hostel
