We got in our room and it was more than disgusting. There was not a single clean bed. We had to find our own sheets and make our own beds.The bathroom's floor was covered in hair and black footprints and the water didn't even get remotely warm. This hostel is not worth the location in the slightest. The entire place was beyond unsanitary in every single aspect.


Great location, staff & bed, only problem could not sleep, even with earplugs. Thought I would try a different hostel in Athens, as been here 3 times in 2 yrs., other too expensive. Air conditioner did not work first night, both nights most dorm room face the inner courtyard above the bar. It's not the place but the people who get drunk, shout, play games at the bar until 1 or 2am. The small bar space all sound goes up & is magnified. Staff continue serve drunk people more beer.


Super friendly staff and the location is very nice, which is close to the tourist spots. Got discount from the great Greek restaurant right next to the hostel. And nice air-conditioned room.

I didn't like this place. The room is very small and the toilet was persistently dirty. Shower was difficult as it poured water on all sides in a tiny space. The room also had a bad smell. Though the location is very good and the sheets were clean.


Great hostel! Very well-located, just few bloch from a metro station and acropolis. Hostel staff are super friendly and welcoming. Me and my best friend stayed in a 4 bedroom dorm which was okay. Sometimes we had problems with the air-conditioning because you have to shut the window in order to make it works haha. They did not have a clothes iron in the hostel!!! :( I would recommend anyone to stay there. Our bedroom was located in the central building, first flo and it was great to ok wifi.


Great place and very friendly staff would highly recommend ! Great location and very clean

This hostel is a great place to stay - I've stayed here twice now in Athens. The hostel is located only a 10 min walk from the central Syntagma square and is located just off a small plaza with many restaurants, giftshops and an outdoor movie theater! The staff here is friendly and helpful, there are free computers and a cheap breakfast offered. Also has a small bar, great for meeting new friends and enjoying the World Cup. Highly recommend this place!! :)


I thought there is kitchen provided, but there is none


The front desk staff was extremely nice and helpful. My room that was super clean. The bathrooms had hot water and clean. The lounge area was very sociable and a nice place to seat back and relax after a day of sightseeing. I would definitely come back here stay my next trip to Greece.


Very comfortable stay. Me being rude but i can't remember the name of the receptionist but she was very friendly and welcoming. Location was excellent, though the street was noisy at night so may not suit everyone. Comfortable beds, clean


Location location location - it was right in the middle of Plaka where there were lots of restaurants and little shops. A little bit on the expensive side but it was very nice! The breakfast was delicious too. Great hostel with friendly staff!


Amazing location. Staff incredibly helpful and sociable. Courtyard area great for meeting other travelers and was amazing with hookah and cheap drinks for watching World Cup!

Staff was very nice and friendly. Great location to sites, food, and metro. Go on the rooftop for a great view of the Acropolis at sundown.


No lockers in the room




Best location ever! I just did not like the bathroom.


Great location! Place is clean and staff friendly. Would definitely return


Our stay was an absolute disaster. We checked in late at night before a flight the next day. Upon arrival half of our friends travelling in our group were told that their beds were taken, the hostel was full and they'd have to sleep elsewhere despite having proof of their booking. The room we were allocated to didn't have a number, a key, a safe and when we arrived our beds were also taken. We won't be coming back!

the room underground was a little wet with some strange smell. But they are really nice! We order mixed room but live in private room for 2 people^_^


It was okay, but cost way too much for what it was. Good location, a couple people on the staff were really nice, but the bar never opened, the showers weren't great, there was no lockers included in the rooms, and there was a lot of noise coming through the window from the courtyard, which had to be open because it was really hot in the room. The hostel wasn't bad, but I wasn't impressed.
