While I was talking outside in a normal voice with a friend at the hostel, one of the receptionists, Christos, threatened to call the police on us if we didn't quite down. I've stayed at many hostels, but never have had such a rude experience with any of the workers. Besides this, everything about the hostel was very nice - the other staff besides Christos were wonderful; especially Jackie. Pretty much the only hostel you should stay at if in Athens.

Dear guest, Thank you for sharing your impressions with us. First of all, we are happy to hear that you enjoyed the hostel, facilities and most of our staff members. We wish all of your stay would be remembered as joyful. We remember well the night you speak of, when you and your friend were having a good time on the roof terrace and later on also outside, right in front of the hostel. Christos had asked you numerous times to be respectful to other guests and keep your voices down, however he could not find a mutual understanding. You may not realise but the city environment works as an amplifier, every sound is carried and reflected off the buildings and even a normal conversation in the middle of the night is disturbing. And Christos knows that. That's why he had repeatedly asked you to keep your voices down and relocate yourself to a place which would not be limiting to your conversation but his request stayed without any response. Your inconsiderate behaviour gave him no other option than to ask for help from the police department and he was so kind to inform you about it in advance. We are really sorry if you found this move rude but we are of the opinion that it is much more rude to disrespect the needs of your fellow travellers while it is so easy to walk 50 meters down the street where you would find a place where you wouldn’t disturb anyone. Thank you again for sharing your impressions with us. We like to hear the opinion of our guests and use it for improvement of our services. Have safe travels and hopefully we’ll see you here again one day. City Circus

Highly recommend. Atmosphere is one of the best, if not the best I have ever been to. Staff very friendly and helpful. Centrally located.

I had booked a tour through their website paying a downpayment. I ended up waiting for about 2 hours on my first day for the tour guide to show up, to be finally told that he/she would not be there for another two hours. They have NO lockers and NO security at all. There are not even locks for the doors. Finally, I had to wait for two hours to get my passport back because someone had lost the key. Overall, its Ok for the price, but there are better places to stay.

Great Hostel. A little out of the way - but excellent staff and service. Highly recommended.

A bit too commercialized. Good for most hostel travelers on a study abroad. but backpackers will not like the fact that it really is more like a hotel than a hostel

The hidden charges in the price are insane. I will never stay at that hostel again because they kept charging you for every little thing. I've been to over 20 hostels and never ever paid for bedsheets before. Its unethical and most importantly its bad business. The bar closes too early as well. it should stay open later. and the rooms were never that clan
