Budget hotel so don't expect any thing great a part of the location, really close to the acropoli and with a beatiful view from the balcony, small room.
Very nice hostel in a excellent area in Athens, you can reach the most important spots easily by foot. It would be nice if reservations could also be made directly at the reception, especially for people who don't own a credit card (instead of reservation through internet).
Stayed here for a One night stop over in Athens for a group of 6 girls. Had a dorm all to ourselves with a view of the acropolis from the window. Everything was comfy enough and wifi worked well. Staff were nice and helpful with all requests. Location was perfect, right near the metro station which the line from the airport and the line to the ferry port both stop at!
- Bathroom was quite private which is good, but for people with claustrophobia not the best option. One single toilet was not even lockable. - Stunning view from the room balcony and the roof terrace with the bar. - AC very good, though, I wouldn't like to sleep directly under it - Key-system horrible. Leaving the key at the reception makes it complicated for the guest. Once, I just got a key without key tag. I was afraid to loose it all the time. Very annoying. - Nice Lockers

This was a very pleasant stay. Farewell and see you later!
Great view to the Acropolis from roof top bar. Good location, near Monastiraki subway station - so its easy to get to the hostel. Rooms were ok. The bathrooms were outside the rooms were not good
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.
excellant location very safe, the best view to Acropolis from the rooftop bar !!!

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.
