    The location of this place is in such a beautiful neighborhood. The hostel also has much security at night, as I came to check in late and had to ring the door bell to be let inside by the front receptionist. They have basic amenities along with a kitchen to cook stuff. I don’t know if they have a lounge as I was there for only one night, so I didn’t get the time to explore the place. The bed is pretty basic too, but good enough to get a good night rest. The atmosphere is very chill!

    We came for two days in Athens and needed a location close to the center. This one is Located 5mns from the main center road Very nice staff and available at all hours! If not there's always the hostel cat looking down on you =) We could not hope for better anyway. Thanks again for the stay!

    This hostel was fantastic! The only reason to not rate 10/10 would be the lack of actual security or someone at the desk 24/7. The front door is always locked and with only one floor of rooms it felt pretty safe. Luggage lockers are perfect size and there’s a big kitchen to use. The location was walkable to everything and staff was friendly too. Although facilities could use a little update, the Chameleon is an amazing place to stay in Athens.

    Overall a good place to stay. The beds were comfortable and every bed had a nightstand and power outlet. The showers and bathrooms were generally clean, but the girls' showers didn't have curtains, so the bathroom floor was often wet. Location was perfect for exploring the city though, and I'd recommend this place to those visiting Athens.

    Staff were friendly. Location was a nice 10 minute walk from the metro. Stay was short. It was good for an overnight stop over. There is a supermarket and bakery 1 minute down the road.

    Excellent location for viewing all the ruins and parks in Athens. Bright and colourful. Open air all the way through. Bathroom and kitchen were a little moldy. Wouldn't want to leave things in the fridge for more than a few days.

    Nice social hostel, met wonderful people here. The kitchen is a bit small for the number of people but it does the job. There's no locks on the lockers which means everyone can go through your things, I had to keep them locked in my backpack most of the time. The bathrooms/showers were dirty and not at all appealing when I got there. With a bit of work this place would be fantastic.
