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.
Definitely had a lot of fun here, staff is super friendly and helpful, beds are cheap, rooftop bar is tons of fun. One thing is that there is always someone getting up at 5 am to catch a ferry so forget about sleeping!
Very good hostel with a perfect position to explor Athens by foot. Spacious room and amazing view from the top roof. Wi fii only in the hall, no in the rooms.
The location is awesome but it's kind of hard to find. They do not have wifi in the dorm room and don't offer towel for free. But overall it's okay if you are on a budget.
Nice place to socialize with poeple around the world ! Very good hostel, nice atmosphere, staff is awesome. we just have to move to the next building to get to Athenstyle hostel, thats why i just felt like i was in Ahenstyle as i was spending most of my time in the lounge room or top roof. I really appreciated the Free tour wich i recomand to everybody !
It was a decent hostel although it was next door to the main hostel. My key card/lock on door kept breaking which was annoying since I had to go up a lot of stairs, so it was inconvenient. The bar and happy hour is great and the tour guide for the free walking tour is also fantastic highly reccomended. The location was the best of any hostel but the WiFi SUCKED and was only in the lobby. Overall, I think I would return if I ever decide to return to Athens however that is extremely unlikely.
The hostel is very nice, well located, friendly and with helpful staff. Though they should really improve the showers in some rooms.
