    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!

    The only negative comment I have is that the mattress in the department was the most uncomfortable I've ever seen, we had to sleep in the couch. Besides that everything else is great.

    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.

    Exept the weird paranoid lady who open the door to me and tell me to dont moove until she finished her phonecall, my stay was ok. Kitchen is not very clean because lot of guys live there and dont do the dishes, but i ate outside most of the time so.. Also i m not sure my duvet was clean as when i came in the room it was not folded but just put like a ball on the bed.. For sur you can find better hostel in Athens with warmest people working in

    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.

    Overall the Chameleon was a pretty good hostel! The beds weren’t the comfiest, but the comforter was blessed! The shower room for the men is super awkward and kinda grunge. The staff seemed to be nice except one woman who was fairly cold and not very personable. The location is what makes this place great, as well as the rooftop patio, overall a decent stay, and you can’t find a better price!

    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.
