a great place to stay. recently renovated.
I would definitely recommend this hostel. Its location is excellent. It is easily within walking distance of major sights such as the Acropolis. A free walking tour is available daily from reception. It is extremely clean, and appears to have been recently refurbished. The staff are friendly. The hostel's rooftop bar is a really relaxed place to meet people, and has an magnificent view of the Parthenon.
Although I only stayed at the Pella Inn one night I had a really lovely experience. The staff was very friendly, everything was clean, and the rooftop bar was fabulous! Would stay here again.
Perfect location, right next to the market. Walking distance to everything. Great rooftop bar with view of the Acropolis. Excellent free walking tour, would highly recommend. No kitchen, but Gyros (kebabs) are delicious and fill you up for €2.20
Great stay! Close to acropolis and shopping! Would stay here again!
Would stay here again was perfect for what we were after :)
Bathroom was extremely clean and seemed new. Location was excellent - right near the Metro and square (as well as Athens flea market). Just a quick walk up the street and there are plenty of shops and eateries! Actually planning on staying next week as the location is so convenient & the air con is excellent in this summer heat!
Wonderful place to stay.. Seemed very recently updated!
They charge 5% for card payments.Lockers only downstairs 1euro/day.Room cleaned everyday.Shower hanging 1m from the floor. You have to hold it while you use it. Air cond.View to the Acropolis.Elevator.Towels so small. Comfortable lounge area but is also an unsecure luggage room. Reception gives informations, but not very pleased. Great location close to everything: touristic area,many bars, restaurants, shops, flea market,bus stop for the airport.
Fabulous location and the room was very clean. Showers were a bit awkward though.
Great location right in the heart of Athens. Beautiful view from rooftop bar. Air con dorms which is amazing and friendly staff
Great hostel with amazing location. Taxi from airport after hours was pretty expensive and th driver told me he works for the hostel so this should have been cheaper - 60Euros is too expensive for one person! Great rooftop bar and good vibes. Nice hostel, staying there on my way back through Athens.
4 of us stayed in a 6-bed dorm for one night after sailing. Really good sleep, we were all incredibly happy with our night there and the location was perfect! The man on the front desk was amazing, very knowledgeable and one of the kindest and friendliest people!

I loved staying here, the location is great and view is amazing! It was easy to find and the staff was so helpful. Everything we needed! One of the best things we did was the free walking tour that the hostel advertises. The guide was friendly, knowledgeable, and led us to SO MANY places that we would not have known to go to. I would highly recommend it as a way to see the city and hear a little history all for the bargain price of only Tips!
It was an okay experience however for the amount we paid it was just average. Good location, easily accessible and very close to the Acropolis. Bathroom was quite clean despite the leaking. Air movement and air conditioning was average in our room in particular. Friendly and helpful staff. Nice view from the rooftop bar. Would recommend if you're looking for a good location.

We stayed in a room with 2 bunker beds to accommodate 4 people. However, the space was very limited and optimal for a single bunker bed. We faced difficulties fitting our luggage which further restricted our movement within the room. Ideally, with that kind of space in a room, it should be for only 2 persons. On a positive note, it has an awesome view of the city and the Acropolis from its rooftop with nice drinks being served. Hostel was clean and the staff was friendly.

Well locate. The hotel offers a good walking tour. The toilet was really small.
Fantastic hostel! Great location right near Monastoraki square (main transportation hub and right near the Acropolis). The hostel was very clean and elegantly built, it felt like we were in a 5-star hotel! The staff were also very accommodating and noce. View from the rooftop bar is perfect! And Maria the bartender is awesome! Only complaint is that it is stairs only (except for a slow two-person elevator), I know I am lazy but it is still annoying. And also the showers are kind of weird.
Terrific location -- right in the middle of happening Athens, really! The "on-donation" walking tour offered was a huge bonus to the experience -- in no time, I found my way back to the Acropolis and to every incredible corner within the city. A big plus was the hostel's roof terrace. On a given morning, I totally splurged at "Central Market" from where I brought goodies/vino to share with new friends from three different continents. Together, we had the most spectacular and cultural lunch ever.
Great location and rooftop bar. I was in a mixed dorm which was fairly small, limited space for backpacks and limited privacy for showers/changing. No lockers in the rooms. Service was ok, had to ask for directions to a mini-market which were unclear. No kitchen facilities from what I could see.
