    The hostel definitely offers great value for not much money. The first general impression is that of an old and run-down place in an unattractive area. But if you don't mind broken tiles or a toilet seat that doesn't match the toilet, this is your budget stay in Athens. The themed rooms are on-suite. Our room had a double bed and a spacious balcony. It was comfortably heated. Although the hostel advertised a limited hot water supply, a friendly chat with reception overruled this measure.

    Very Good

    Athens is an old city, needs a lot of love. This area is no exception. Found no issues getting to and from places though. The one key per room thing is weird but not as bad as you might think. The guy in the desk seems to work there 24/7 and never sleeps, he's very nice and remembers exactly who you are. It's an average place, did the job for me. Stayed 5 nights before a Greek island yacht trip and happily returned here before flying out.

    The staff were super lovely and very helpful! However the location wasn't great, and as two females we didn't feel particularly safe getting to and from the hostel. The kitchen also wasn't well equipped, and the one knife went missing after our first night. The wifi isn't great in the rooms, but it's alright downstairs. We had issues with the shower and toilet as well. Though the rooms are super cheap, just be aware that it has its reasons.

    You would except from a so-called "youth hostel" that it is filled with young people. Nevertheless, this was not the case at all. If you'll be staying here, expect long-term residents which mainly consists of males and families. When asking for advice or folders for things to do around Athens, we were kindly referred to the freewalking tour website, which did not really make this whole hostel experience a personal one either.
