A little overrated on this website - the bathrooms, showers, toilets were not clean at all, too few shared among many people. The garden was nice and the people were very friendly and social. The rooftop has a great view at night. This hostel would be perfect if it were cleaner, and had storage lockers for each bunk.

another fine stay - thank you - i always stay with you, whenn in Athens


100%

Excellent Hostel! They helped me with my numerous athens problems (particularly when I had just been pickpocketed), and I ended up turning my initial 2 nights into a total of 5 nights. Amazing front desk, very good and clean facilities. Obviously the 4 bed dorm was better, but the 8 bed was very nice to meet people. Excellent atmosphere, bigger hostel than I am used to but the courtyard is an easy way to meet people. Overall, staying here wasa great decision and I wwould recommend it!

This place has an amazing location and very knowledgeable staff. Great common room and super easy to meet people here. That being said, I was here toward the beginning of high season and there was a party every night if the week, so it was hard to sleep. Just keep it in mind if that's not what you're looking for! Also, wifi is sketchy, but it is in almost every hostel in Athens (I've stayed in several). No kitchen, which can be annoying. Great place though!

The hostel was great in every way except one: the wifi was absolutely terrible. Half the time I couldn't connect. They should really invest in improving their wifi! Otherwise, the staff were helpful, the rooms were clean, and it's located in the center of all the attractions -- walking distance to the Acropolis and the 3 major metro stations.

I've traveled the world and this is by far the best hostel I have ever stayed in. Great location, great staff, great vibe. Couldn't ask for more. Make sure you stay here if you visit Athens!

You pretty much get what you pay for. The location is very central to the tourist area in Athens. Staff can be a bit disorganized (staff lady wakes me out of my sleep in the am and demands that I leave because I did not pay for another night in the room - she later realized she was very wrong). Beds are hard and shower is a bit uncomfortable to stand in. The location kind of made up for it's faults.

Staff is very accomodating for stay logistics, traveling through the city, and anything else! We didn't spend a lot of time in the hostel itself because it is so close to great places around the city - the street it is on has a number of cafes/restaurants and it is very close to the Acropolis and other landmarks. Easy to get to/from the airport and the port.

This place was awesome. Amazing location - you can walk everywhere. Staff were so lovely and helpful. Only bad thing was some of the Fac. They claimed to provided weren't available. Ie. bar is only open in summer, free walking tours you have to organize yourself. Common area is a bit lame but it did the job, met some amazing people. Defiantly would stay here again.

The staff is really helpful!

Everything in this hostel is good even excellent, except for the staff and the luggage room. The staff is not that friendly and helpful, and the luggage room is too expensive ok? Three euros for six hours? Most hostels don't charge for that.

Awesome location, very central. Wifi didn't work very well and sometimes didn't work at all.

The location was terrific, right in the Plaka, not a far walk from all the old stuff. The 4-bed dorm was a little small but nice, small balcony, private bathroom was clean. There wasn't really a common room or an obvious place to meet people and hang out, not ideal for a solo traveller like me. Staff was friendly and helpful, especially the late morning/afternoon girl. It was quiet and the rooms were nice, but if you want to meet new people, probably look elsewhere.

hostel staff was super helpful! We had so many questions, and they helped us with everything! They were so nice and patient, and the hostel itself was clean and spacious.

Amazing people, amazing location (right off the plaka and the acropolis!) You will love staying here. They also have free computer use which was great, and the staff is very very helpful in finding things to do in Athens.

Well located, in a perfect place in the district of Plaka, is eveything you need thinking that you will be almost all the day out in the city. The bathroom and the bedroom were Ok, clean but nothing expectacular. Near the commerce, and full of restaurants nearby. Has a good WIFI signal in our bedroom.
