We felt very unsafe at this hostel and left immediately after seeing our room. The hostel is very hard to find, with no signs demarcating its location. The first floor is pitch black even in the daytime, making it the perfect place for someone to get taken. The lady manning the front desk was nice enough to give us our money back except for the first night and our deposit but I would not book this place again.


I stayed in this hostel for a week in May 2014, and I had bedbugs in my bed. I got bitten 30 times (even though my friends staying in the same room were fine). Needless to say that all sheets should be better cleaned !

Great service which created a good overall atmosphere at the hostel. The way the staff behaves oftentimes decide how the the guests are going to behave, even with each other. Staff is important, and this staff was great!

Great stay, staff and people. If i'd have to suggest something to the hostel, is to replace the lockers for working ones. We had one working locker in a room of four. No problem since we were four travelling together, but i could imagine it different for single travellers.

Great location, central to everything. Great roof terrace. Staff helpful and rooms and bathrooms clean. Just one thing to note - the name of the hostel on here does not appear on their front door! It's listed as just Downtown hostel which meant we walked up and down before trying both hostels on the street.

I strongly recommend it.! Great location, really in the city center. In the reception there is a lovely Greek girl always there to assist the visitors.


The best value for money!! Really good location!


Anastasia and Isabella were the best! They really made my vacation worth it. They were very nice and helpful. Anastasia helped me when my luggage was lost and my flight was delayed. She helped me to feel at home. She was very friendly as well. Isabella was also very kind to everyone and helpful. She made my stay comfortable and enjoyable. They really went out of their way to help everyone out. I hope they are still there when I return to visit with my friend next year!


The possibility to use wifi was only in the common areas but not in the rooms.
