The Hostel was very close to the main attractions. If you are tired of walking, the bus stop is all.most in front of the Hostel. And two bus lines takes you where you want to be...at least for me.

The common area is more of a hallway or a small crowded room, and the kitchen is tiny, so I found it a bit hard to meet other travelers. However, I had a comfortable stay and the hostel is cute with really nice and helpful staff. It's a far walk to the Acropolis or Syntagma, but buses are nearby and easy to use. Overall a good stay.

There was a great deal of noise going on at all hours of the night. This is not the fault of the hostel but maybe an hourly limit for noise disturbance? If there already is one it is not enforced at all

The details concerning the hostel arent explicit enough. For me the most negative aspect was concerning the localization, it was considerably further from the centre than what I thought, and the connections arent that good. Then some aspects weren´t that pleasant: taking a 7min shower with hot water is charged, detail that was not in the hostel description. Also, plus the pilow cover, only one bed sheet was provided. And the wifi wasnt the best... Still I loved the vibe of the city!

It felt far from the city center, but it's really not that far. I recommend taking the 10-15 minutes to walk instead of public transportation, because you can pass through the lovely National Gardens. Everything in the hostel felt small, but not too small to feel uncomfortably cramped. There is WiFi, but like the WiFi throughout Athens, it has really low bandwidth. You have to pay for hot water for your showers, or just take an ice bath (which you eventually get used to). For the price, :-)

Locker is provided for better security. The room was pretty comfy too although there was a smell of newly painted room. Air conditioner may help during hot summer time too. The location is quite far away from the city center (about 20 mins by trollebus or 25 mins by foot from Syntagma Square.

A really cosy place with lots of friendly people. An older building, but old in a way I like. The shower was old in a not so good way. All in all I was happy here.

I had a really nice time with the guest and some of the staff members. However, when I came in at 5:30Am I didn't felt welcome, even if it's supposed to be a 24h reception ! You have a nice little kitchen and a moce Tv room to relax, but just because of the showers I wouldnt go back. You had to pay 50cent for 7minites of hot water and 1 out 3 the hot water wasnt running. But for the price ... I guess its not to bad.

a good spot for a 1 to 2 day quick stay in athens. defiantly a youth hostel feel to it. the bare essentials and a fun atmosphere.

This was OK for the price, the staff were really nice but it was pretty unclean and you were only given a bottom sheet for the bed, so you had no sheet or blanket on top of you. Wifi worked pretty well, and it was only about 20 minutes walk to the main attractions. Overall if you're looking for just a cheap place in athens then this is fine.

If directions on how long we have to stay on buses etc. could be made more clear that would be helpful for when we arrived.

The kitchen, dining room and common room need a tad bit more light. It can be more mellow when it's dark but I think there should be a time when there is more access to light.

This place is really dirty. I was here for one night and had to book last minute due to an accommodation mix up. The beds were free for a reason. I didn't shower while I was here and did tried to spend as much time as possible outside the room.

This hostel is great for your buck! It is clean and friendly and welcoming. The owners make sure you are safe and have a good place to stay. It has a great location and cooking supplies. The hot water service is also good- hot water works 24/7. Each room has a spacious locker as well.

I just wish the hot shower was free and that the shower stalls were a bit bigger. Otherwise, it's great: close to everything, great staff and ridiculously funny quotes on the wall.

It was okay. Far from city center but a nice walk. The kitchen is gross and smells bad. The rooms are nice. You have to pay for hot water to take a shower.
