The reception was in a separate building from the rooms, so you had to go down the tiny elevator, or the stairs, swap buildings, then go back up for breakfast. The toilet seat was detached from the toilet, the shower stunk and flooded, the rooms were tiny there was no where to put your bags. On the up side they had a very secure lockers both in the rooms & basement, and a good laundry (laundry was overpriced). Sensor lights didn't work for long, so you'd be on the toilet/stairs in the dark.


The hostel was great but the showers were not really that good. I would definitely stay there for a sjouke stay in Athens because of the people, location, price, free breakfast, and overall room quality

This was a great place to stay. The staff were great and the location was perfect. So easy to get to from the airport and within walking distance of all the major sights. The rooms were big and clean and light and there was air conditioning. The beds were clean and comfortable, I slept really well. The toilets and showers were cleaned regularly. I would highly recommend this hostel - especially for the rooftop bar. A great place to stay!

The view on the rooftop... is amazing. It's also easy to meet a lot of people. The location is great and the breakfast is pretty good too! Definitely recommend it. Only problem was waiting 40 minutes to check in but that was only because of the high volume of people in at the same time. Still an amazing hostel though!
