I really loved George, he was super helpful and had invaluable knowledge of hiking and history that he was super open about sharing. The problem is that this is not really a hostel, it is a hotel (apartment style accommodation) with many beds stuffed into the room. Thus there is no common room for chilling out or outdoor area for chilling. If you are going with a group- great. Solo, not so great. BUT George does awesome excursions and definitely makes an effort to help travelers get to know e/o.

Met some of the nicest travelers ever here; Miriam is the sweetest lady. You do have to pay for hot water, bathrooms are gender-segregated by floor, outlets are not strong (beware!) and all rooms have 5+ roommates, so it's the luck of the draw in terms of who you get. About 1-1.5 hours from airport. Still, one of my fondest hostel memories to date!

Good wifi (not the best far in the rooms but still works). A little walk 20-30 minutes from most sites but, that being said, it makes everything around the hostel (bars, restaurants, grocery stores) cheaper. Staff was very friendly and kind. Really enjoyed the guests as most were well seasoned travelrs !

This was an average or below average hostel. I had a good time while I was there but mostly because of the people I met. I had read all of the reviews about how basic it was and the facilities were pretty crappy but I thought those travelers were just being a bit picky. I soon realized they were very true. The hostel isn't bad and it's definitely livable but extremely basic! I really liked the pay 50 cents for 7 min of guaranteed good pressure and hot water shower (no sarcasm)!

The staff were so nice and welcoming! The hardest thing was that none of our taxi drivers knew where it was located! So it was hard to find. I suggest investing in a big sign to put on the door- because there wasn't clear marking. Overall I loved this place! It was just getting there that was difficult.

There was no security at all in the rooms which was concerning. The sheets in the rooms where dirty and did not fit the beds. It pretty much you get what you way for. There where no towels and you had to pay for showers. The location was great and the staff when you saw them had a smile. We asked for an all male room which did not happen. But that wasn't a deal breaker. It was good for the expirence. Athens was amazing

Good location in a non-touristy area of Athens, but yeat in walking distance of the Acropolis and of the center of the city. Pretty quiet. Wish there was lockers in the room. They could update the bed linen: holes in the sheets = time for a change! The place is clean tough.

I. You must pay for hot water. II. It's at least a 45 minute walk to Syntagma, so take the bus. III. There was an unexpected 10 euro "security deposit" upon arrival. IV. The lady working there is nice. V. The hostel is small and cramped, but has a lot of plants and open air and you can tell people have travelled. Overall it's an okay place, but somewhere a little closer would be my future bet.

About a 30 minute walk to the Acropolis, but in a nice neighborhood near a great bakery. The staff were very nice and friendly. There is an equipped kitchen for residents to use, and the walls are covered with sayings left by previous residents. Everything was clean and the bathroom trash was taken out multiple times per day. Have to pay 50 cents for hot water, however. We were given fresh linens and blankets for our beds. Very cozy. Met some great people!

I stayed in Pagration Touth Hostel three nights. It was pretty cheap and therefore the poor standard and the poor atmosphere were okay, but if you are looking for more than just a cheap accomodation I won't recommend this Hostel! It was pretty cold during the night, it is not well heated! No lockers in the room. 10€ deposit for the key. In case you are leaving early in the morning you have to return the key in the evening and hence you are left without a key washing mashine is 4€

Miriam could not have been more helpful. I really liked the green plants in the hallway.

Stayed there only for 1night.The location is a bit far from Santygma square if you decide to reach the hostel on foot.The kitchen is super small and looks a bit messy.If u wish to have a shower you have to pay 50cents for the 7minutes of the hot water.We actually found it quite funny and didn't have a problem with that.The staff is extremely friendly.

If you're looking for just a place to sleep this place will work. But if you want to be close to any bars or fun places don't stay here because you will walk a long way to get there and Athens can be a hard place to navigate if you are only there for a weekend.

The rooms were freezing because they only kept the heat on from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. The hostel staff was very nice and the room was clean!
