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.

The desk clerk we checked in with was extremely nice and very helpful! I would say the only two possible downsides would be that the WiFi didn't work in the room we slept in, and we were only on the second floor, and the other being that the bar wasn't staffed/open the night we were there. Instead you had to buy a beer from the front desk. Other than that the place was great! Impeccable location!!

Great location! Right in the middle of the action 5 min walk to the foot of the Acropolis hill. Full of restaurants and boutiques. The rooms are clean and cozy. The wi-fi was good. It felt very safe. The staff was awesome! They were so nice and knowledgeable. They gave me great advice and explained very well how to navigate the city. The staff really shows enthousiasm in what they do. Thanks for giving me a home away from home! See you next time!

A well located hostel, although there was a couple of things that we didn't like. The staff should have advised you on the arrival that on Sunday morning you're going to be woken up at 8am by a sewage truck making noise for almost an hour. The room was clean but there was no A/C or mosquitos net which for the city like Athens is unacceptable. The staff was helpful, but they kept asking about recommendations which was annoying. The atmosphere was more like in a hotel, not in a hostel.

Tejía place is great, and the best part of it is the location, it's close to everything.

Mixed feelings, on the whole it was quite good, and I enjoyed the breakfasts (though they could have been a bit bigger). Staff ranged from very friendly and helpful to kind of annoying - while some were great, two approached me late at night, seemingly thinking I was drunk, and asked me to log into facebook on their computer and post a recommendation of a website I had never used before – not the best way to treat your customers. It’s a safe choice I think, though not the best in the world.

This is a very good hostel. Excellent location right in the middle of old town Plaka on the footsteps of Acropolis. Good restaurants all around. Staff are ultra friendly and make you feel very comfortable. Highly recommend this hostel.

Wifi does not work in rooms and also is veryyyy slowww. Almost useless. I ve been in 2 rooms. One of them, the toilet did not flush, the other no hot water and only 1 plug. Best location in Plaka, but many things should be improved since it is not very cheap. Staff was very kind.

This is more of a budget hotel than a hostel. No common area to meet people. Internet only works in a tiny windowless room. Affordable breakfast but other hostels offer free breakfast. No lockers. Check out other options before booking here if you want to meet people. Athens is small so everything is a good location.

Very friendly staff, great location, and clean facilities! I would definitely recommend staying at this hostel, and probably will again if I'm ever back in Athens!
