    My room was a lovely and clean en suite room space with a comfortable double bed and a big balcony . The location is in the centre of Athens just 3 minutes walk from the train station. The receptionist was a very kind man that made me feel very welcome. I stayed just for a night, but if I travel back to Athens, I will stay there again .

    Very nice hostel, with really accommodating staff who helped with everything I needed, including moving my room when I wanted to be in a female-only dorm. It’s too bad there’s no kitchen, as that was the only thing missing.

    The team of the hostel is very nice and helpful ! They try their best in order you enjoy your time in the hostel and in Athens ! The rooms are basics and clean, for 9euros a night, it what I expected ! The hostel is quiet but this is not the neighboorhood where to hang out. The kitchen closes at 9pm and the shower can be cold sometimes ( but still, tell the team they will manage it for you!).

    Stayed here as the sister hostel was closed. Fabulous location! Right in the middle of all the large attractions! Not many others at the hostel, so no atmosphere, but it's off season so it's to be expected. Friendly staff, no lockers in the room (in double room with companion, so was fine). Go elsewhere for breakfast. Clean sheets and towel. Would stay again based off location alone.

    Overall, our experience was good. However, the website specifically says credit cards are accepted, but when we got there we were asked to pay in cash. The other downside of the hostel was it is not in a good neighborhood. You have to walk through some sketchy areas to get to the hostel. Third, the shower curtain was very short so the bathroom was drenched every time we showered. But overall, the room was good value for the money, and the beds were comfortable enough.

    I dont know what should i write actually. The location is ok, but if you get used to live in Athens behind streets. Cause this area is a bit ghetto. I mean i like this area. but if you are a tourist, you might not be enjoy it. The stuff is smiley. The uncle Vassilis is cool! I experienced some hostels around this price, so this hostel should be more cheaper. I dont think its worth to its price. It’s definietly need renovate. If you stay a night, its ok.

    This hostel was not what I was expecting. The receptionist was smoking (right next to a no smoking sign), the air conditioning didn't work, no towels were available to borrow or rent and even the shower curtain had mildew on it. It was cheap, but you get what you pay for.

    This is in a very dangerous location. Walking back from the main neighborhoods are difficult because you can turn down one street full of groups of men, drinking, spitting, catcalling, and throwing banana peels in your direction. I suppose I don’t think I got a good deal because in my opinion hostels like this should be 10 euro (though there is no soap in the bathrooms) My blanket had a huge brown stain but it wasn’t the worst thing in the world. Staff was nice and helpful-they work a lot!

    The lady at the desk was nice. But other than that the hostel was terrible. When you are called a youth hostel and the average age is 40 there is something wrong with the place. When you walk outside you can see heroin needles and junkies. Do not stay here by any means.
