The hostel is perfect for young adventurers. The place is easy on your wallet, it is in the most center Athens as it can be and the roof terrace is awesome. The staff is relaxed and nice and there is guy at the desk 24/7. Beware, you will have to get the AC remote control separately for 4€ per night, I really recommend it if the temperature out is 37 celsius.


Location is not too far from the airport and quite close the the underground train. No air con through out hostel and did not work in our rooms.. You cant flush any toilet paper which wasn't all that pleasant. Wifi works only in the stairwell so lots of people sitting around the steps. How ever the guy behind the desk was quite helpful with giving directions and advise on how to get to and from the port to catch the ferry.

Have to pay extra 4 euro for the air conditional and there is no fan in hostel. But the staffs are very helpful and very nice. Love the staffs working there.


Thi hostel is ok to stay a few days but not a whole week.


Very good location and charming staff. However there was no kitchen, the AC costed extra and the showers were a bit dirty.


The main problem is the conditions in which the hotel is. Cleanliness is terrible. The bathrooms are in terrible conditions. In one of the floors, the showers don't have doors. There are no common areas and internet doesn't work inside the rooms so people sit next to the stairs on the floor to be able to use it. Most of the staff is also not very nice or helpful.


The bathrooms should be cleaned with more frequency. Also the shower doors cannot be locked so there is no privacy whatsoever. Despite this the staff tend to be friendly and quite helpful.


Top location, only a 10-minute walk to the Acropolis and totally central, clean, good value for money, nice staff, but there's not really the hostel atmosphere you might expect, apart from a small rooftop terrace there are no common rooms, so I'd recommend it if you are only looking for a place to sleep :)


very nice place, recommended.

nice staff, great location. chill rooftop. would recommend it!


The bethroom is very dirty and there is no locker. The staff are good and location too.


I hate it. All I need in Athens was a place to sleep well and take a good shower, but the shower lock was broken and I could'nt sleep, cause they let people arrive after 00h in the rooms with only ONE key! So my days in Athens were bad and I don't recommend this hostel to anybody.

A suitable place to stay if you simply need a place to sleep for a night or two, but overall a bad hostel. Internet worked poorly, toilets were broken (think broken seats duct taped together) and we had to rent a remote for the air conditioner for 4 euro / night, which was pretty ridiculous. Some guests in another room were clever enough to download the remote driver to use via their phone - try that. AC should come standard.


Internet shoukdbe acessible everywhere


Unfortunately booked the wrong nights accommodation and showed up a day early. There were no beds available that night for me but the staff were very helpful and understanding and did their best to find me some other accommodation for the night.


Very well situated, 3 min from most important food market and 5 min walking from centre. Staff very friendly and always willing to help you. Kind regards Jesica and Jordi, Barcelona, Spain


Had a good time at the hostel, the staff were extremely helpful and the wifi connection reached my room. Facilities like the showers could be better, and no lift means its very difficult to take your things upstairs to the rooms.


Good location, good prices, and interesting decor. The 24-hour reception was also handy. The room itself was clean and big (I stayed at the basic 4-bed dorm). However, the big letdown was definitely the toilets and bathrooms. There were two showers in on my floor - one had no lock and the door constantly swings open, and one had no hot water. They don't look exactly that clean either. The room itself was quite hot, and there were constant car noises once the window was opened!

Each room only gets one key even if you share with strangers. The showers are less than ideal and wifi is available only on the staircase. But everyone is friendly and the location is great! They have beers and a rooftop hangout area.
