The rooms are spacious, the staff is very helpful. Location is alright, close to the Acropolis. The roof top bar wasn't open unfortunately but I went up for the view. It lacks a cosy common area. The fridge in the kitchen made a lot of noise so not great for a good conversation. The touristy street right behind the hostel was a bit annoying to walk through. You had to pass through each time to reach the Athens sports bar which had some deals with the hostel.

The hostel was located in an impressive building near metro paseo de gracia and only minutes walk from Plaza Catalunya and Diagonal. It was clean. Rooms were spacious, but it would have been good to have private bedside lights. Showers were rather small without private space to undress. I stayed for 2 nights, one of them was very noisy with people shouting well after midnight. I would advise the staff to maintain silence in the hostel at night as people come there to rest.

I enjoyed my stay, met interesting people. Spacious rooms and thankfully I was in a dorm on the 1st floor. Kitchen and common room are in basement, which is slightly strange at first. Living room could be improved, only one couch and one computer. Kitchen is small but has good facilities. Staff were helpfull.

I enjoyed my stay and especially the fact that the hostel is so small. The beds/matrasses are very good, I slept ever so well. It's a 3 minute walk to the tram stop and then it's only a few stops to the center. Staff are very helpful and friendly.

The hostel was clean, the staff helpful and breakfast nicely served. Check-out time nice and relaxed at noon. The only minus is that you need to keep the key with you while out.

I liked the way they decorated the walls, very original. Breakfast was good value for money. Rooms were clean and rather spacious. The only minus I feel about this hostel is that it costs extra to use internet despite bringing your own computer. And the internet does not reach the rooms. But that is not necessarily bad either since it enhances social contact and ppl can not stay up online all night. All in all I recommend this hostel.

I was in a dorm near the common room so it was quite noisy especially in the morning when breakfast was on. I was cold in the hostel, but you can ask staff to turn the heating on. It is a bit far away from the old part (casco viejo) but it is close to the bus station and not too far from the Guggenheim. The staff are very friendly and helpful. A cute place all in all.

This hostel has got about 6 computers, so you never really have to have problems checking the internet. It has churros for breakfast but get there at 9 to get them. The rooms are spacious and the hostel is kept very clean. The staff are very helpful and friendly. They are also willing to take you out at night. Nightlife and (tapas) bars are very close to the hostel. All in all a fun place, will stay there again.

I found it very difficult to meet people but that was propbably due to the fact that it was semana santa and the hostel attracted mainly Spanish groups of people who did not mix that easily. Other than that very clean and very friendly and helpful staff.

The staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are spacious and the beds have comfortable matrasses. There's churros with chocolate for breakfast, but get up around 9 to get them. There's plenty of computers and the common areas make it easy to meet people. Staff sometimes take you out for activities at night. I had a great time and will definitly try out their other hostels too.

This hostel is ok, but to arrive at night is really strange/dodgy, as you have to get in though the hospital next door and then walk in the dark through the garden back to hostel. I asked the guard whether it was safe and he did not really reassure me, he said there were drug addicts and weird ppl around. Not recommended when you are traveling alone as a girl:-)

I really loved this hostel, it´s peruvian owned with western standards. The beds are very comfortable and i had no problem sleeping (with earplugs). It´s easy and safe to go into town and has lots of fun activities. Highly recommended:-)

This hostel was ok, but quite cold at night. Also little authority of the staff towards people who misbehave. Rather noisy at night and cold in the common chill out rooms. On my floor the toilet doors didn´t lock and i had to press the button every 5 minutes to have light.

Overall quite nice hostel. It says to be quiet after 23h, but the tv in the common room stays on and people keep hanging around there talking quite loud. Luckily the doors are rather sound proof.

Thank you for the feed back, and I must say you found one of our weaknesses... We want to create a social environment, and it is really nice that people meet and make new friends. But you are right, they tend to keep talking! Unfortunately all our common rooms are directly next to the dorms, but hopefully in the future we can do something about that. Until then, we can only rely on our guests to respect each other, and recognise that our main trade is sleep! (I never travel without earplugs myself, it's awesome!) Regards Lena

A real rip off! The deposit of the booking was not taken into account and even though we warned 24 hours in advance that we were not staying a 3rd night, that money wasn't refunded either, with the excuse that the day starts at 2am!!! I do really not recommend this hostel.

it's ok for a couple or several people, but if you're travelling alone it might be better to stay in their city hostel

I found drinks at the hostel bar rather expensive. And the hostel itself as well. Have stayed in good hostels for less than half the price.
