This was my second stay at Fivos (previous stay: 2012) and I consider it an excellent place: clean, efficient, unpretentious, convenient. I was particularly touched by the fact that, having arrived by ferry from Crete before 8 am, I was offered a choice: a more comfortable room at 3rd floor available at 12 am, or a less comfortable room at 5th floor available immediately. Dying for a shower and some rest, I gratefully jumped at the second option. Also: there's Greek salad for breakfast!

The location and staff are excellent, the breakfast is great, bedrooms were clean and shower was hot and with reasonably good pressure. But there were some negatives points: that the shower is free stand and we think is quite difficult take a bath with this kind of shower; there is no lift in the place, we stayed in the 5th floor and was quite difficult to bring the luggages up and down from our room; the WiFi is free but just works in the 2th floor and is not enough to comply with all guests.

Not a nice place, not very safe either, rooms are small and beds old and uncomfortable. I made a last minute booking for only 1 night at Fivos since all the other hotels were fully booked... but it was a huge dissapointment! Would never go back again.

Despite it is in a very good location, Hotel Fivos doesnt deserve a cent of your money since there were no hot water, no wifi in the rooms, and not a friendly staff at all. We stayed there three nights, and we thought problem with water was temporary, but the following days instead of repairing it, they accused us of lying about it. It was very rude and they didnt bother to make us a discount or some kind of excuse. Except breakfast and location, nothing is good about this place. ( No elevator!)

The website of the hostel and the pictures not reflects the Fivos hostel, he look much unkempt from the pictures. The room was very small and also the bathroom that was in the room. In the first day was not hot water. We asked for another blanket and not got a Satisfying answer or a blanket.

Fivos is well located and offers good breakfast. But I must complain about the reception that was not polite at the morning and the 4 bed room located behind a club and with no ventilation. Fivos is just an alternative when other better places are fully booked

The pictures in the Hostelworld listing were somewhat misleading- it appeared to be a modern hostel but turned out to be quite an old building with not much of an atmosphere. The rooms were a bit tired but comfortable enough.

Would stay here again. Only disappointment is we booked a double room and when we arrived there was only a tiny room with a bunkbed available. But the guy at the reception was so nice and so funny we didn't really mind.
