very comfortable place to live


Flori is an excelent recepcionist, always in a good mood and helpfull!


Was only here for a night but it was a good hostel. Staff was so helpful - even helped me book a flight when I arrived at 1am. Good location next to all of the sites in Athens!


A great hostel! conveniently located next to the old town and one of the main shopping streets. Air conditiong works great, lovely courtyard, friendly and humorous staff, a (bipolar?) cat named cookie. the bar is closed at the moment, but the reception is super friendly and sell drinks, and its open 24 hours. Not the cheapest, but definitely worth the money. Oh yeah, Florin and all the other staff was great. Thank you for the hospitality!


This hostel has been so accommodating to my travel needs! This is my third stay and it's located right in the middle of plaka with lots to do around you. You are a 5-10min walk from the acropolis and it's a nice relaxed atmosphere. The staff are incredible and very accommodating - I will be back and am happy to share this review with you all who are considering a place to stay in Athens! :)

Great people, great vibe, perfect location! Don't miss this place, a hostel in the heart of authentic Athens. Wonderful place to stay while visiting this historical venue!!!


Hmm average stay. No printing facilities - had to run and find an Internet cafe at 2am to print a boarding pass. Tap dripped all night next to my room and was very loud. Wifi was not great. Not the worst, but certainly not the best. The best thing - very close to everything


I had a great stay at the Students Inn. It was centrally located in the center of town and a short walk away from the Acropolis, Acropolis Museum, and other major sights. The staff were all very attentive and helpful whenever I asked questions. The rooms are comfortable and not cramped, unlike other places I have stayed in before. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a place to stay in Athens!

Ideal location on a super cute street with restaurants near by and shopping right at your doorstep and close to train station! Wifi is best I've had in a hostel in weeks... As a bonous the staff are totally friendly and went out of there way to help me out, held my bags for three nights so I could venture to islands with ease. This place has everything, location, great people and access to plan your next adventure. This is my second visit!


Having a great stay here!


I recomended! grat hostel! we will come back!

I got a free upgrade to a single room which was fantastic!


Central Plaka locatıon ıs great for seeıng the hıstorıc sıghts. Some room staırs are steep for oldtımers. Watch the trıp-up step from offıce to kıtchen area - marble at base of metal staırs. Staff are frıendly but handıng keys over on every buıldıng exıt seems a bıt overdone. Good Englısh breakfast for fıve Euros.


For the price you pay this hostel needs an urgent upgrade of its bathrooms and dorm rooms. doors lock very loosely and no lockers in rooms. Staff were always overwhelmed and slightly rude. The only positive from this review is the location. Many other better hotels that are underrated around Athens then paying for this average bare minimum hostel. Unfortunately one of the worst hostels I stayed in all of Europe.


Great staff all around and optimal location.


A basic hostel, good location and not too expensive. As far as hostels good there was nothing special about it. It didn't harbour the feeling that many hostels do, welcomes travellers with a place to meet and mingle. Although my booking said I could check in at noon, I wasn't allowed to until 1:oo.I also was not allowed to hang out in the common area to wait until I could check in, which was weird. No other hostel has ever done that to me before. Wifi signal was really weak. Staff were only ok
