First, the staff are really nice and friendly! The room is quite old. And in the double beds room, there is only one plug! It is really not enough for travelers. Besides, we wanted to take shower around 11pm, but there was no warm water.

The hostel is located in a really gd place, everything is in walking distance. The hostel is clean and comfy but sometimes the wifi is not working too well.
Cheap and right next to monastiraki station. Staff wasn't that friendly or helpful besides the girl from Russia. She was amazing! No frills type of place but convenient location. Wifi was temperamental
-Location: best area of Athens. Close to metro and 2 minutes away from the touristic zone -Cleanliness: great -Staff: super nice staff that helped with metro and places to eat. Funny too! -Facilities: wifi is good, but if you also get your room in the fourth floor don't expect wifi to reach. However they provide computers for free. Bathroom was the only real negative point, since it was really small and the shower's curtain was too short and all the water came out. OVERALL: great! Stay here!
Excelent location and price for what you get. Recomend also the travel agency they have there. Only bad thing was the bed (for a couple, double private room)- terrible, noisy, almost broke..
We needed to leave our key at the desk when ever leaving the hostel. I found it weird that we got the key back just by saying the room number, they didn't check if it was really our room. Staff was nice, altough sometimes we got misleading or even wrong information from one staff member. Hostel has a good location and breakfast was nice, but don't expect too much from it.
When we arrived, our room was unkempt, there were dirty sheets and towels, and there wasn't a functional safe
Everything was ok during my stay. The only problem is about wi-fi it was very slow and allways disconnected. And shared bathroon at 5th floor was super tiny. The staff was very friendly especially eutophian guy. And the old man probably he is an owner or manager. Thank you for their good hosting ...
Great Stay in Fivos. I booked a single room, it was small, but at a good price. Receptionists have been really kind and helpful. You can also leave your luggage for all day long (they locked them).
Hostel was good located in downtown and hotel staff is nice and helpful. However our room was very small with old equipment. Breakfast was quite poor. If you need something just for night is ok, but dont expect much.
The hostel is in a really fun and cool area, and it took us barely 15 minutes to walk to the Acropolis. It's definitely in a noisy area, but it's safe and clean. Free breakfast is included in your stay, and the staff were so so helpful. Both staff members that we interacted with were incredibly helpful and friendly, and went out of their way to make sure we had what we needed and knew where we were going!
We stayed here as a stop off to do the sites on the way to the islands. Excellent location very near to plaka and the acropolis. The area had a lot of graffitti but we saw no trouble even at night very busy location with plenty going on and very close to the metro. Staff were helpful but hostel itself lacked atmosphere and the stairs were a killer. Just for location and staff I would recommend this but don't expect luxury.
Right in the heart of Athens. This is obvious as you can literally hear everything that is going on outside. Motorbikes, party goers and people having conversations on the street out front. We are on a RTW trip and this was by far the most disappointing room we stayed in. Unclean, smelly, and incredibly loud as mentioned earlier. Staff were mostly unhelpful. Wifi was very poor and didn't work in our room at all. Great location. Acropolis only a 15 minute walk.
The hotel is in a fantastic location close to all the sites and areas you might want to visit as well as convenient transport links. It is clean but could do with a bit of updating. The breakfast is decent for a budget place. The main problem for us was the noise from both the busy street below as well as outside our hotel as we could hear people in the bathroom next door.
it's more an hotel than a hostel. But if you are not after that party and loud atmosphere, this place has everything you need. Great location only 1 min away from the nearest subway station and Monastiraki square and 10 from Acropolis. Staff is helpful and warm. And breakfast is healthy and genuine. Next door thre's a travel agency which can accomodate your ensuing travel destinations across Greece. Al in all an excellent budget choice
The hostel is nice, but the air-conditioning is horrible. It was much too warm in the room (in April and not because it was warm outside as well) and the air was really dry.

Fivos is very close to the metro station Monastiraki, which means it is really close to most of tourist attractions in Athens. The receptionist is really helpful and dynamique. The only thing disappointing is that we have no hot water in our room.

The hotel is modest. Good position and the beautiful girl at reception is the only good thing :)
You have to be lucky to have a good room here , they have strange rooms, some of them have lower sailings , some of them have a pole in the middle of the room ... In a word , luck is the key word to stay here .lol .. Good price and good location though . There are some noisy club outside , will shock your nerve till morning ..
