    If I'm telling you that this is the best Hostel you can have maybe you don't belive me. I stayed for a few days and it felt amazing. I tried 2 different hostels just to see the difference and I couldn't wait to come back to Chameleon. In one word, this hostel it's just another home. That warm feeling of being togheter with great people and travelers, enjoying Athens and experiences. It's a lot about of what kind of people this hostel bring togheter and what time you can have with them.

    This has been my third stay at Chameleon and I just feel at home there. I sleep well and always meet an interesting person or two. It is stated that there is air conditioning, but it won't be used, as it is impractical to expect it to keep such an area cool. Never bothers me but others have seemed disappointed, having an expectation that there will be air.

    This hostel was really nice, I would have given it a perfect 10 but I think maybe the atmosphere could have been a bit more lively, even though it's towards the end of the season. There's a lot of potential here and the staff are awesome. Some weekly organized events at the hostel to bring everyone together would be a great way to make the vibe perfect. I would definitely stay here again!

    It was a great place to stay for my brief trip! The staff was friendly and helpful - plus there's a hostel cat too. The location is perfect if you want to see ALL of the ancient ruins, as well as great restaurants and museums; I even made it to the beach. I'd recommend it for slightly longer stays in particular, or long weekends, because the staff are extremely sociable if you're there for several days, which was really great.

    My stay at Chameleon youth hostel was awesome! Located close from Monastiraki square you can always find a place to shop and eat within 5 min walk. All the major tourist attractions like Acropolis are within 15 min walk. Besides the staffs are very kind and welcoming!

    I hardly found the place at advantage, arriving as I did just as a national lockdown was announced, but the staff were very helpful after a difficult flight, as I sought to rearrange things. The location, st the western end of the main ancient ruins, is one thing COVID-19 can't obviate.

    I stayed there for 3 nights and it was awesome. The hostel is 5 min away from the metro station of Thisio and it's located in a very quiet and safe area. It's also 5 min from the Acropolis hill. The staff are very helpful and friendly. It has a terrace where you can chill and meet people and a cat (which nobody talks about in their review but I think it's a bonus). Overall, this hostel is great and I would definitely come back to it.

    The hostel is fine on an overall look, it's very well situated, easy to find, cheap and it does what it's made for, but front door open and no lock or keys for the rooms... Had some inconvenience with my payment, and didn't feel 100% same with the people staying in my room. So... it was ok, but definitely not the greatest I've stayed in at all...

    This is hostel is in close walking distance to all of the major sites yet the street can be sketchy at night. We were told by our taxi driver to be very careful in that area after dark. The hostel it’s self had 3 working showers one of which did not work. There was no community feel. We did not get to meet fellow travelers or learn more about the city from them. If you are just looking for a place to sleep at night then this place will be fine.
