    I was at this hostel just to chill out for a few days after a long bikepacking trip, and boy was this the ultimate chillout spot. Awesome atmosphere, George is an absolute legend and always keeps the vibe going within the hostel. The hostel is also surrounded by amazing restaurants and bars, so even when you're not going to see monuments in the centre, you'll have plenty to do. The neighborhood is very nice and has a lovely atmosphere. I already miss this hostel.

    Going to this hostel was probably the best decision I've made in the last couple months. I started my travels in Athens and am continuing my travels with people I have met there. Great place, great people, great plants, great George (the host). `Will definitely return whenever I'm back in Athens!

    It’s a little hidden gem imo and it’s what you make it. The Host had a shining personality, the people that I met there were also adventures. It was a hostel in all the best possible ways.

    George is a legend. stylish and authentic interior. a hidden gem/oasis in the middle of a chaotic city. Great for socialising as a solo travelers, even though there are no planned hostel activities. You can really feel the hostel is family owned, and not commercial. Couldn't ask for a better place to stay in Athens.

    Unique hostel. A little difficult to find due to no signage but that might be intentional. Staff was friendly but wasn't able to give any helpful information as to where to buy a SIM card, which I would think would be a common question so... Building was loud, with banging windows during the day and voices carrying in the evening. Common area(s) are a bit awkward and a tight fit but the rooms were a fine size and the bed was quite comfortable.

    Very Good

    I think that the people who work there are friendly and nice, there is a usable kitchen which is a great too. However this is very much a get what you pay for hostel. If you're sensitive to noise, not for u bc u can hear everything. There is no isolation btwn the rooms, it's as if you're in the same one, which is actually not cool bc one of them is more expensive. They need to do better on soundproofing. The location is ok but far from exarcheia which I thought was the best in Athens.

    Very friendly people! Too bad about the small kitchen and the noise that was continuously present. Sleeping there was not really smooth because of the poor insulation. Bathroom was not convenient because there was nowhere to put the things you brought with you.
