Sketchy, but otherwise ok. Some rude staff, but could have just been a language barrier.


Hostel in great location, right next to cafe/bars, easy to find. Free breakfast on rooftop cafe was awesome..bar/restaurant all day with good cheap food.. Rooms really good, had lockers but u need ur own lock. Had balcony with view of parthenon. only downfall was the fluro lights everyone had for a night light which lit the whole room & wifi in common area only which is in a diff building..


An 8 bed dorm was good as the beds are spread out and there is enough space for everyones things. Breakfast included you just have yo go across to the neighbouring hostel. Unfortunately your keycard wont work in their main door and you have to wait for them to let you in.


Best staff, amazing free walking tour every morning that is super fun and gives you all you need to know about the city. Highly recommend this place. Would definitely come again!


The hostel is in a great location, couldn't be better. The terrace is really nice to hang out and they have good meals there as well. The room is good, they have normal beds and you will not get hot in there. The shower and toilet are really poor, they work and everything but its nothing comfortable. The wifi is just working at the reception and sometimes you take a little time to be able to connect.


Rooftop bar is awesome, reception too, but, the room was overcrowded and very hot. If you dont mind for a couple of nights is perfect, but I wouldnt stay there longer.


This is easily the nicest hostel I have ever stayed at. It's a little out of the way, but the city bus is a ten minute walk away and a great way to get around. My two friends and I agreed that we would book here again if we were lucky enough to go to Santorini again!


So we booked a 4 person dorm but when we checked in we were put in a 6 bed dorm with out being told.. So we thought that maybe there will be only 4 in a room.. This was incorrect as 2 others arrived at midnight.. In the morning we asked what had happened and they said because they were busy we were put in a 6 dorm. Which was fine However we were still charged for a 4 person dorm which I felt was not right.


The shared structure with the AthenaStyle Hostel is amazing. The staff is very helpfull and the location couldn't be better. But the room e bathroom structure are very bad. The aircon doesn't work. The shower is just terrible, very terrible. Doesn't work well or stop the water from nathin. But, if you can ignore that, the hostel is amazing. I would come Back there, but staying in the AthenaStyle rooms instead.

Awesome location!!! But only wifi at the next buildig where the reception is...


The location of this hostel was great. The staff for the most part was very helpful and friendly. The hostel had a great rooftop bar, but it was a bit hard to socialize as it was more of a bar feeling than a hostel. The wifi was absolutely terrible, no big deal that it didn't work in room, but in the common room it was restricted very strangely. Google occasionally didn't work as well as other major sites and it made it quite hard to check simple things for your travels.


I really loved this hostel! That view, you just can not beat it. I made friends with the bartender whom I would love to see in California. This hostel has a very friendly atmosphere and along with beautiful people working here. I highly recommend it for those making a trip to Athens. The location, views, staff, and draft were just something I would like every hostel to have. GO TO THIS HOSTEL! :)


Good points - rooftop bar was fun, location was good ... But The experience was marred because the air conditioner was almost non existant - so i couldnt sleep as i was sweating. The wifi was only in the reception and the showers were the worst ever.. There are definitly better places!


The main building is great, but the rooms in the door next door have barely functioning AC ad nonexistent wifi. The upstairs patio is amazing. Good place to meet people.


Friendly staff, rooms were sufficient, good security. Toilet and shower were a bit small.

Very close to monasteriki square. Rooms in the main hostel building were much nicer than those in the building next door


Not the best hostel. Didnt stay at any others in athens though. Rooftop bar and food is good. And in a good location.
