The staff and location alone make it worth the stay! All of the staff are incredibly welcoming, nice, and helpful. You are minutes from great sites, food, and shopping. More

Amazing location. Studios is one block from the Acropolis and Backpackers (same owners) is half a block closer. There's a strip of restaurants right next to both and Studios also runs its own cafe/bar/laundrymat. The place is very clean and the staff are nice. Atmosphere at Studios wasn't More

Superb location, the staff were helpful and friendly. The studio rooms, even as dorms, were clean, tidy and well equipped, though there could have been more plug sockets for the dorm bedroom itself. Thoroughly recommended! More

Excellent location, with a great view of the Acropolis from the rooftop bar. Right beside a busy street with tons of restaurants (but on a quiet side street far enough away that you don't get noise) , 10mins walk from the entrance to the Acropolis and less than 5mins walk from a metro More

it's more an hotel than a hostel. But if you are not after that party and loud atmosphere, this place has everything you need. Great location only 1 min away from the nearest subway station and Monastiraki square and 10 from Acropolis. Staff is helpful and warm. And breakfast is healthy More

Fivos is very close to the metro station Monastiraki, which means it is really close to most of tourist attractions in Athens. The receptionist is really helpful and dynamique. The only thing disappointing is that we have no hot water in our room. More

Another group of travelers walked into our locked and private room at 1 am while we were sleeping. They had been given a key by the front desk and told it was their room. We are two young women and had been followed to the hotel earlier that evening. This experience was terrifying for us. More

Even though we booked 2 person private room, we get 4 persons dorm room but they told us that we will be alone at the room. Our room was at the basment and breakfast unlikely the description there was only jam and bread. More

Our room was lovely, with a view of Acropolis. It is very close to the sightsees in Athens, so you can walk everywhere. We loved it very much! :) More

Cheap and simple and the staff were absolutely amazing. Very easy with us leaving bags during the day. Very flexible with our stay and very helpful with travelling advice. Ignore all the bad comments - clearly not travellers - if you want the hilton go book it! We were there for my first More
