Really nice place, and the room had good air conditioning, and a great view of the Acropolis from the window terrace. Loved the roof top bar.
GOOD THINGS: Location (perfect!), wi-fi and the rooftop view. BAD THINGS: My room (22) was smelly, dark, with only ONE plug for the entire room (6 beds) and NO lockers. The bathrooms were a complete disaster, with mold in the wall and ceiling and very dirty shower curtains. It looks like an abandoned building with some available beds. And these bed apparently have bed bugs... I left the hostel on the 24th of Aug and the day after I noticed 16 bites all over my body. I would not come back here.
the hostel is Amazing . the Location Is great and very safe ! close to everything .Right next to the Acropolis Hill ! great view to the Acropolis from the rooftop bar. The rooms were clean and comfortable, great A/C free wi-fi ! The staff was very helpful. I will absolutely stay there again !
Location is amazing. Close to everything. From tge rooftopbar you have an amazing view on the akropolis and other tempels. Staff is helpful and there is airconditioning... All in all good...
Staff, although very friendly, could brush up on nightlife in the surrounding area.
Pella inn was an amazing hostel - I would really recomend it to anyone staying in Athens
Excellent hostel! Rooftop bar w/ Acropolis view is amazing! 2 minute walk to tube station. $2 gyros by Montastaraki Square are delicious & great for a tight budget. Showers dont have stationary showerhead but wasnt a big deal to me. August is VERY hot & humid but 4 bed rooms have great A/C. I will absolutely stay here again.
Everything ok, but breakfast would be fine.
Wifi great and in rooms, air con was so nice! Staff were friendly, terrace bar was a lovely place to sit and have a few drinks and has a great view. Facilities nice, the room was cleaned regularly. No lockers in the rooms but you can use ones downstairs and I never felt my stuff was unsafe in the room. Only criticism is do not use their laundry service...you give it in the morning and won't have it back until after midnight, if you do use it keep this in mind when planning. Location is awesome.
This Hostel is Super Amazing and i don't have any negative comments.All the people that i met there was all travelers and the bar at the terrace makes the spot a perfect meeting point with lots of free shots by the bartender. The staff was funny and very Helpful. The Location Is Superb!Right next to the Acropolis Hill! The rooms were clean and comfortable and they had computers down to the Lobby for free use.
Bed bugs, no towels or linen were provided until asked for, and air con did not work
We booked a 5 FEMALE dorm online, when we got to Pella Inn we were given a 8 mixed dorm without any warning from the staff. Once we got into the dorm to settle, we noticed several very uncomfortable things : no blankets or sheets provided, no key to close the room. We had to go to reception to get a refund as they "accidentally" booked the wrong type of room (but 2 girls in the dorm had had the same issue earlier), we had to ask for a refund as they charged the price of a 5 bed dorm.
Great roof top patio with a view of the Parthenon. Free walking tour every morning. Otherwise this was just a decent and pretty average backpackers hostel. It did the trick.
Great hostel! Nice staff, comfortable room and beautiful view from our balcony as well as the rooftop bar. Sure, there's a bit noise from the street but the location couldn't be better so we didn't mind. Would definitely recommend it!
In terms of location, this place was great. Within walking distance from all the main things you want to see in Athens. The free walking tour taken by George was also fantastic, and the roof top bar was also okay. However, the staff here were very disinterested and extremely unhelpful. Even rude at times.
Great location, hostel was nice and quiet. Awesome view from the bar!

Had a great stay here, perfect place to stay for a couple of nights in Athens before island-hopping! Didn't realise when we booked that we would get a balcony with an amazing view of the Acropolis - a nice surprise on our arrival! Would definitely recommend the free walking tour by George, a great way to see lots of Athens in a short space of time!

Had a great stay here, very central location and they offer a free walking tour which was very good. Rooftop terrace was beautiful with a good atmosphere at night time and rooms and facilities were kept clean. Having aircon was a major plus too especially in summer. Only negative is that it did not have kitchen facilities
The hostel is located in very good location with a great view of the Acropolis. But the rooms are way too small. The bathrooms are always dirty and smelly. And it would be great if they will have enthusiastic staff too.

Great location, friendly staff. Great rooftop patio which is awesome for meeting fellow travellers. My only complaint is that some rooms only have one key for 4 people and that the key has to stay in the room or at the front desk.
