    Location perfect and super friendly staff make the hostel a great traveler's experience. I received a free upgrade of the room, which was also amazing! Thank you for hospitality.

    My friends and I stayed in a private room but it catered to all of our needs just fine. The staff was beyond amazing and so helpful and friendly. The location was also great. Most major sights within walking distance. At night it was a bit noisy outside on the street but I would most definitely stay here again.

    The only thing missing was the bar was closed, and the rooftop is never opened and closed for good. The location was good and you can get to everything. The staff was amazing and it was clean in the private rooms.

    Very Good

    Incredible location, and relatively friendly staff, but slightly dated hostel with very little atmosphere. To be honest, I’m slightly surprised all the other reviews were so positive!

    I honestly don't understand why this hostel has such amazing reviews. Let me be clear, it is not a bad hostel. It does the job fine, but it's a little run down and the wifi is absolute s****. The atmosphere isnt great and the only common area is outdoors which isn't great when it rains. The location is amazing but that's the only great thing about this hostel. This hostel is just alright, nothing special.

    As far as location goes, it's about the best that you can do. Most of the major tourist attractions are easily reachable by foot and Plaka is a good area to stay in. This was a cheap option and you do get what you pay for. The bathrooms weren't fantastic, there aren't lockers for your things, and the wifi was horrible. It also seemed like they were hosting a school trip with a bunch of younger kids, which I wasn't too fond of. Aside from that, the staff was very nice and was doing their best.

    Overall the place did not reflect what was pictured on this site. The hostel was much dingier than expected, beds were not comfortable and not cleaned when we arrived. I'd say if you're looking for location this is a fine place but I'm sure there are better options for a little more money.
