This hostel is located really close to Syntagma Square, so it's very easy and convenient to get to everything. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly. There's always hot water in the showers and a lot of them per floor. There isn't a kitchen, but they'll keep food in a fridge for you and there is a microwave, kettle, and coffee pot available for use. The wifi doesn't really work in the rooms or the common room. The common room is really nice to hang out in.

This place is excellent: clean, good price, central location, fast internet, super friendly helpful staff. They even upgraded me to female only dorm! :) For a couple of days hot shower was unreliable, but that was temporary and fixed later in my stay. Highly recommended.

Had a cold shower the second morning I was there. Would have been nice to have some lockers in the room. Bathroom didn't have any hooks to hang towel and clothes.

This hostel is absolutely perfect for seeing all of the sites in Athens because it is all within walking distance. The staff was wonderful when we asked for directions and recommendations. They lock the door to the entrance every night, so they have to buzz you in. Breakfast was offered, but not included in the stay. We loved the breakfast. They had a menu with multiple options ranging from 3 to 5 euro. The room was a good size for a group of four. There were two single beds and a bunk bed.

Super helpful staff, particularly Cosmina, both for local advice and planning longer trips. Better location than even most hotels.

best location in athens, less than a minute than plaka main street and very near the acropolis. nice stuff and very informative. only cons where: mosquitoes (they are all around athens though), computer availability was low and internet speed was very slow (applies to wifi too) and cleanness of the room.

We have stayed at this hostel twice now and found it very good! The staff are extremely friendly and helpful with information about Athens and the islands. The beds were comfortable and the room clean. The location is perfect for a traveller - walking distance from the Acropolis and National Archeological Museum, close to many many restaurants, and an easy walk to Syntagma station where you can take the train to the airport or the port. The breakfast is nice and well-priced.

This hostel is an armpit. The mattress felt like it was stuffed with wadded up newspapers and car keys. The toilets have to be in the right mood to flush. The showers are clogged. The unincluded breakfast consists of white bread. And to top everything off, the owners decided one day to adopt a parrot. They might has well have a rooster too. At least then the parrot would have someone to talk to...all night long. This hostel is ridiculous. Wear flip flops in the shower.
