Really nice atmosphere.. Great location, right by the acropolis metro, good breakfast included also in the price. I would recommend it for sure. The only thing i didnt like is one person of the staff that wasnt polite at all, as soon as i got there she asked me to pay and made me go to change because she didnt have change at 3 in the morning!!

Amazing location ! Next to all you have to see in Athens. The girls at the reception are really sweet, they helped me a lot with the indications to go to the port.

The bathrooms should be cleaned more often.

We stayed here as a quick lay between getting back from the islands and flying out of Athens. It was very close to the main sights of Athens and the rooms were small but adequate. The directions from the metro to the hostel were difficult to follow. Possibly adding some estimated walking times would he helpful as we feared we were going the wrong way. Also the dark alleyway that leads to the hostel should have more lighting. The darkness was intimidating and it made it difficult to see the sign.

Toilets and showers were horrible. So horrible that we only used it out of necessity and the girls in our group wasn't comfortable with the showers so didnt use them at all. It's great value for money as it's located very close to Plaka and walking distance to tourist sites. Would not stay here longer than the 2nights we stayed.

Overall it was a pretty good hostel. The room had really good air conditioning. But the bathrooms were prone to cockroaches, I picked out five before I showered one morning. The breakfast was good. And pretty good location, only like ten minutes from a lot of the big sights.

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...

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.
