no kitchen, beds not comfortable, rooms small, location excellent.


Loved this place! Great staff!!


This hostel was pretty awesome! I don't think location can get any better it is right at the bottom of the acropolis and in the center of Plaka the old city. The staff were all really friendly I came alone so they gave a a private instead of a dorm probably due to groups booking together. Facilities are good clean bathrooms. The breakfast isn't free you can buy it from 3-5 euros pretty good! The wifi is pretty good I was on the third floor so it was a bit weak sometimes. Overall a great stay!!


Great location, great staff!


This hostel is in the absolute most perfect location in the Plaka, super close to everything. The people that work at the hostel are incredibly helpful and nice, and they made the stay great. Overall it's a wonderful hostel, and I would definitely stay there again next time I'm in Athens!


Great location, very helpful staff and nice atmosphere


Facilities were atrocious (VERY outdated, broken bathrooms, not well-kept), but the location made it worthwhile I guess


Seriously this was the best hostel! The staff were so helpful and spoke really great English. It is in the center of Plaka 5 minutes walking from the Acropolis and 10 minutes from the National Garden. I 100 percent recommend.

I booked two beds in a four-person dorm and ended up getting a private room. The staff and the location were both great. The staff gave us a lot of helpful tips. Everything was clean and the showers were hot. The only negative is that the walls are thin and if you have loud neighbors you will hear them.


Everyone was absolutely lovely and the room was very nice. The place is affordable, and it's very close to everything you would want to do in Athens. I would definitely stay again!


I enjoyed my stay. I would only recommend that their computers be updated. I had trouble loading stuff because their browser was old. Also, wish they had a printer in case the travelers needed to print traveling documents. Overall, not a bad place to stay.


The rooms were extremely small. I don't like the system of leaving your key at check in and asking for it when you get back. The lady at the front gave me a box of keys to pick from and I could have taken someone else's key and gone into their room, no problem. That did not make me feel very secure. There is a microwave and water heater, for guests to use. There were only two outlets in my room and three people, which was extremely frustrating. Good location and wifi.


Very Friendly and attentive staff, clean, perfect location. The only problem is the Wifi, even with efforts of the staff to solve this problem, it didn't work well almost always, but I recommend stay there!


Clean and comfortable. Friendly staff. I stayed in 4-bed mix dorm.


We during low season, but received excellent service. Staff was friendly and very helpful. :)


Great location. Very friendly and helpful staff. Noting to pick on.


This hostel is amazing, one of the best I've ever stayed in. Staff is excellent, a great place to stay in if your going to Athens.


Easy to get to from airport. Excellent location to explore Athens.


The location is great. No common area except for outside patio, which in the winter isn't useful. Tiny bathrooms.


This is a great place on many reasons - location, staff and atmosphere, it is all worth it, so I highly recommend it, as one can't top this one! One more aspect, staff gives you more than you pay for, to be more specific, I was upgraded - meaning put into a better room TWICE! :)
