Small little unit within a larger building. Nice and quiet. Walking directions from the train station according to the website were difficult to follow. Once we were about half a block away, the last instructions left us going in circles. We finally had to stop and ask for directions and still nobody seemed to know this particular street name. Once we found it the location is ok.
We arrived very late and once there the front desk person told us that our reservation was actually at their sister property Athens Studios. He assured us it was a better hostel but we could go upstairs to their rooftop to see the view of the Acropolis first. The sister hotel was luckily not too far away but it was still a hassle. We only stayed one night but it was an average dorm room with 6 beds. Nothing fantastic or terrible about it. Not much of an atmosphere tho. Fine to just sleep and go.
Very relaxed staff and patrons. Lounge all day and party all night. Very nice pool and bar area.
As a female only hostel, it felt quite safe and the other guests tend to keep quite clean. According to a roomate, the 8 bed dorm was better than the 6 bed because the room itself was larger. Super close to the train station that goes to and from the airport and also close to the underground, although you will probably need to make some transfers to get to the main attractions. Downside is the reception & bar is a few blocks away and you may need to hike up some stairs. Didn't bother us though.
We were a bit nervous as we didn't know what to expect on a houseboat. The staff are lovely and our private room was decent. However, the room was VERY small - so do not book if you get claustrophobic. Temperature was fine, boat does not rock. You can sit on the pier and watch the sun go down. It is about a 10 minute walk to get into the main town and train station. The steps to go into the boat are super narrow and I've heard people fall down them so be careful.
