This location was very easy to get to from the airport as Syntag Square is an easy walk from the hotel. It also was located in an area I felt safe in after dark, easy walking distance to the main attractions in Athens. The staff was very helpful in giving us great tips and advice and the breakfast, while simple, was DELICIOUS!


Great staff, great cats, great location, great price.

As many of the other reviews mentioned, this hostel is fine but does not really offer anything special besides its prime location. The staff (for the most part) is very friendly and helpful but the dorm rooms can be cold and rather small, not to mention the showers with their telephone booth-style doors, the cold lounge area, and the kitchen with it's one working cooker. It's not a bad choice for your stay in Athens, but I am convinced there are better options out there.


This is the worse place I ever stayed in ! It needs to be fixed and repaired allover Noisy, dirty, unfriendly owner (staff Ok, though). If I haven't had booked through internet, I would have moved to another place. The location and the nice lady baking french toast for breakfast are the only plus.


Good value for the money


Great breakfast and the location is perfect!!


The staff was friendly, the location was accesible to everything I wanted to see, and it was quiet.


It was okay. Heaps of cats and some in the rooms which was yuck - like on the beds etc. (I'm allergic to cats and so would have been nice to have known the cats lived throughout before I booked). The bathrooms were pretty grubby and needed a good clean in my opinion and my shower was freezing one day. Good location though and I suppose you could get a worse place to stay.


Walking distance to Syntagma Station and entrance of Acropolis.


Location is excellent, as it is 5 minutes away from the acropolis. It was not the dirtiest hostel ever but could have been cleaner. Moreover, we found a bedbug (just one and didn't get any bites, but...). The luggage storage did not seem to be the safest. Could invest in some real doors for the showers. Double bed private room was actually two twin beds put together. Good breakfast, though. Not a great hostel but it gets the job done.


Friendly staff. Simple breakfast. Nearby to all attractions. Wifi only in common area. I stayed in a 3-bed dorm where the room was a former toilet.


Not too far from center and sightseeing place and faility is enough. you can feel uncomfortable when you take a shower because shower room is a little bit small. But otherthings are not too bad.


Excellent location.Very helpful,friendly staff.They should provide soap in Toilet.
