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

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!

Good price for a few nights in the city center, but missed air conditioning!

Very friendly staff, perfect location. Ideal for a short stop in Athens. The only minor downside was that the toilets weren't particularly clean.

Great location ( though it's the worst street in the best area). Staff helpful, rooms a little small but had great outside areas, toilets/bathrooms were a little dirty. But overall good place to stay!

Great hostel in an absolutely unbeatable location! Staff are super friendly and more than happy to sit and chat with you and provide advice on sights to see and things to do. Having a usable kitchen is fantastic but there are plenty of relatively cheap options very close by if you prefer to eat out. Hooks or shelves in the shower would be nice and the wifi reaches some but not all rooms. Minor inconveniences and all in all I was very happy with my stay here. Would definitely recommend.

Great Staff definitely make up for the not so great facilities such as always having to ask when you want the air con on

The upstairs rooms are nice but the garden rooms are terrible. Especially four people mixed room. It is definitely not a room.

Not worth it at all. Very disappointing.

Initially the hostel was a hard to find and we had to ask several times to people on the street, seing that we had US phones and couldn't call directly to the hostel. Overall the hostel is in good conditions and the rooms are comfortable. This was our first time staying in a hostel with shared bathroom. They were Ok, but the showers do get the floor wet and there is no place for hanging clothes, which can be a bit tricky. The staff was very kind and helpful.

Good point: Very good location, near Plaka and the Acropolis. Bad points: The hostel didn't seem clean at all. We found a bottle under the bed that was probably sitting there for days. There was a cockroach in the room. Showers are the ones you have to hold and it's all very dark, awful. Breakfast is very poor. When I tried to pay, the guy in the reception didn't have change and asked me if I didn't feel like going out and changing my money.

Overall the stay was decent. Though we had to sleep our first night without a fan or air conditiooning in the heat. Really uncomfortable. Wifi didn't reach our room as well. The showers and bathroom was not that clean as well.
