Mould all over the shower and roof, no hot water, wifi connection was so terrible that you might as well not have have any at all, only one power plug in the room, the floor would have been more comfortable than the springy beds, no elevator

BEDBUGS. Our bed had bed bugs. We went downstairs to inform the woman there and she started laughing. They wouldn't let the one other girl in our room move. Their internet wasn't working and again we were laughed at and never told weather or not it would be fixed just ignored. Man in the morning kept insisting an Internet cafe was around the corner and telling us we were wrong that it wasn't there, when the one he was talking to we found 30 minutes away. Very poor. Stay at pella inn.

Fivos has a great location. The rooms were a good size and our ensuite was small but functional. The wifi didn't work the whole time we were there which was annoying. Staff were helpful.

Great location. However advertised laundry facilities and that was not the case. Wifi was spotty at best. Better places to stay in Athens for the price.

Wifi didn't work at all and having to walk all the way up to the 5th floor in 38 degree heat wasn't pleasant, everything else was fairly standard.

Wifi didn't work, even though it was advertised that it would. The breakfast was very basic. Great location, right next to monistraki square. Our AC was broken, but we were able to fix it on our own. We had a good time in Athens and our stay at the hostel was average. Definitely not the best we have been to, but not terrible either.

The rooms were clean, the staff were friendly, and the building was secure. It was in a central location, so it's not hard to find any of the basic tourist attractions! They even had a complimentary breakfast in the morning. I would definitely stay there again!

Our room was in the fifth floor (without lift), too noisy and small room, it wasn't possible to move there! The worst accommodation I ever had in Greece. We stayed only one night and never again!

I highly recommend hotel Fivos, and having free internet, (wifi) from the room was great! So close to underground and easy to visit all places of interest in Athens.

Can't say it was good or bad because they didn't have a room for us. We arrive and they said they were full and had found another hotel for us. Friendly enough but a bit annoying to not have a room that we had already confirmed.

Close to Main square, train terminal, great food, markets, the Acropolis (which is amazing). Not much to do at hostel better for shorter stays.

Air conditioning was off and they would not turn it back on, no hot water and wi-fi was working on and off. It was cheap and in a great location, but I'm not sure I'd stay there again. Staff were really helpful for suggestions of places to go.

Pros: location is awesome which is why we selected our stay here and it was a reasonable price plus who doesn't love when breakfast is included. Cons: the facilities were manageable but not anywhere near ideal. I did notice cleaning being done often but the beds were old and there was no toilet seats! Maybe this was temporary but it was incredibly inconvenient for us at the time. Overall an average stay. The desk was very helpful and they also stored our bags which was great and should be noted.

What a fabulous place - about 2 seconds walk from Monastraki metro and equally close to anywhere you'd want to go day or night in Athens. The staff are lovely and helped us with transfers to the port, as well as breakfast at that early time of the morning!

Do not stay here! Staff was rude and unhelpful. They first told me I was not allowed to get the breakfast even though in their amenities said free breakfast. I reserved for two females in a 4 dorm but they split us up. They put one of us on 5th floor and did not help at all to take the luggage up the 5 flights of stairs. I reserved for one night but they tried to charge me for two. I had to tell them twice. Showers are cold. No air conditioner in rooms. Don't stay here. Awful experience.

Overall we were pleased with this hostel, for the price we received adequate accommodation. The location is excellent within easy walking distance of all the main attractions and places to eat. Perfect for the metro to the airport. The room itself was very hot, the air con didn't work and the traffic made it too noisy to open the window at night. Hot water was sporadic. The room itself was clean although the bathroom ceiling was moldy. The staff were really friendly and knowledgeable.

Great location, cozy rooms. Nothing much one could ask for in a stay in Athens!
