Security is a bit of an issue. There is only one key per dorm, which needs to be left with reception whenever you leave. There are also no lockers in the rooms. There's a a bit of a drainage issue, the floor of our bathroom was constantly wet for the extent of our stay. The hostel is pretty close to everything, which is a plus. Easy to get to the port and the airport. Wifi is good.

Nice place in a good location. Not too far from acropolis. Clean beds and cool bar

There was only one key per dorm room and therefore the door was not locked if someone was inside...although the front desk was close to my dorm door, this arrangement felt somewhat unsafe - anybody could enter the room. The hotel provided safety boxes for valuables but no lockers in the rooms. Also, there was an extra 1€ charge for linens (dorms). Otherwise a decent location to tour the city or to catch a bus to Sounio!

The site says 24 hour cancellation however we rang 3 days in advance and no one would help then 2 then the day before as we just wanted to change the night to the following day. Them they charged my debit card for a night we weren't there. So when we turned up we had to argue our case as they said we hadn't rand even though we rang over 5 times to explain and gave plenty of notice. The room itself was old and the one plug socket was hanging off the wall. Terrible over all experience l

Really near the metro station heading to the port Piraeus, and we could easily walk to the Acropolis !

Was very easy to find and very close to the metro station, we get also free ouzo witch is a typical Greek drink, there is a free walking tour. Mostly recommended to every one.

It was not clean (hair, dirt on floor), smelt damp, toilet leaked onto the floor when flushed, towel rack broken, shower head not attached to wall, further than expected from main attractions. We were just here for one night to see Athens - very glad to go back to our clean rooms on the island we were staying!

Very good location, close to restaurants/bars/metro, friendly, helpful staff, good rooms, good AC, good wifi (only on the 1st floor). Beds are OK. Your space in a dorm room will be kinda' limited. Smaller things like locks, some paint, some hardware would have to be improved/repaired. Excellent value for money. Thanks.

Only one bathroom not in dorm room. The common area had no windows, minimal lights and was kind of smelly. Extra 1Euro for sheet/blanket/towel

Do not stay here! Basement common room/bar is disgusting, cockroaches all over the floor. Cockroaches spotted in the bathroom as well. Only one key for the entire dorm and not enough outlets. May be cheap but better off spending your money elsewhere.

This hostel was dirty, had a very poor common space, and did not provide bedding. The bathroom was horrific because it was dirty and had low ceilings that I nearly was touching my head. The shower did not separate from the rest of the bathroom so there would be water everywhere.

No security at all with the way they keep the keys. The staff didn't really helped us with anything.

Even though is not near the city center, is very close to a metro station that takes you directly to Acropolis.

Except wifi connection, I had no problem in this hostel. Location is very perfect. You can stay in this hostel.

Quite disappointed. It is the area that you will not feel safe. What's more, it will suddenly run out of hot water. Not recommend

Everything was nice, it takes 15-20 minutes walking to the acropolis and the city is beautiful. I washed my clothes in the hostel and I don't know how but one of my panties melted, so be careful. The towels and linen are not included, they cost 1€ each.
