I could see the Acropolis from my room. Can't beat the location. Really enjoyed talking with the guy who runs the place too.


Really central to all the things you have to see in Athens, It is kind of and old place, but it is enjoyble to stay there. And the staff is also really nice.


Were so bitten by mosquitoes during the night that we could not sleep. Left the window open for ventilation as the aircon was not working. A cat also jumped into our room in the middle of the night.


We reserved a double private bedroom for 1 night and it was terrible! The room was tiny but that was not the bad part. The window (if you can call window) was almost near the ground, it was impossible to completely close it and of course there was no view or natural light. The room was very hot (even at night and in May), with a fan and only two power points, one for the fan, another for the light. We had to shut down the two of them to be able to charge our mobile phones. Terrible breakfast!

Best location (accross Hadrian's gate, close to the "tourist stuff" - 10 min walk to the Accropolis !), good price, good beds, OK breakfast, nice kitties (there are 2 live-in cats), cool garden. But MAN the bathrooms & toilets are DIRTY !! And there are no lockers, and the windows don't close properly, so if you worry about the stuff in your suitcases (I don't and felt safe during my stay, but...) and/or cleaniness, it's not for you! But I'll come back next time I'm in Athens ! :)


Room 16's facilities are not so good and mosquitoes are all around the room, so our stay at that day wasn't so comfortable

Not very clean. Also staff wasn't very welcoming and didn't explain much upon arrival. It was hard to find and not a fan of the location.


Even though we booked 2 person private room, we get 4 persons dorm room but they told us that we will be alone at the room. Our room was at the basment and breakfast unlikely the description there was only jam and bread.

The location was perfect, right in the center, about a 5min walk from Syntagma metrostation. The room was basic but OK. People who came back to the hostel during the night, were making lots of noise when coming in. As I had the room next to the reception hall and opposite to the bathrooms, I did not sleep at all because of the noise. Staff didnt say anything about it. Staff was friendly at arrival but not there when I left.


The place is perfect, it is close to everything, you have to see in Athens. The bathroom and the toilet was very simple, a bit poor, but it always was hot water. The door is missing, so the rooms in the neighbourhood hears everything.


It was in a really good location, and the breakfast was good. But the place didnt feel super secure. No lockers to lock up your stuff.


Our room was lovely, with a view of Acropolis. It is very close to the sightsees in Athens, so you can walk everywhere. We loved it very much! :)


The staff is The best, They are very helpful and kind!

From the ratings and comments left on hostelworld I was expecting something warm and inviting and friendly, but when we walked in it was dark and dingy and it was hard to track down somebody to help us check in. The hotel was not as clean as advertised and the bathrooms left something to be desired.

The location, staff are great! We went by the hostel on two different occasion. In both of our rooms were small and we only had one electric plug, witch is quite annoying. Also, there is no ink for the printer; we had to walk around town for a while before finding a copy center.


The biggest advantage of this hostel was an almost perfect location and avalability of smaller rooms (we had a 3 person room). Good value for money, good facilities (blankets, wifi, towels etc.). It was also quite clean and tidy. Breakfast is good if you are very hungry (and very sweet!) but if you are looking for more diversified meal it is better to make your own shopping. Staff was friendly and helpful. I would definietly get back to this place if I am in Athens again.

Nice place to unwind after flying in from US. Very nice outside patio and kitchen, good see how could be fun if more people at hostel. Facilities and bathrooms pretty average, showers hot. Probably wouldn't stay there again, better value elsewhere in Athens.


Staff were fantastic and room was fine, but it is room 26 and next to the toilet - you can hear EVERYTHING, which is a) disgusting and b) makes it difficult to sleep... please do something!


I really enjoyed staying at this place. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and the location was excellent.
