    Superb

    Perfect location and helpful staff. One security concern was there were no lockers in the rooms, so you either left your bag in the room or had to put it in their locked luggage room, which made it inconvenient if you wanted your stuff locked up. Also, I booked an ensuite bed in a mixed dorm, but the bathroom and showers were shared between a large group of rooms.

    Fabulous

    The location is perfect as its less than 5' walk from the 24/7 airport bus station, useful when you have an early flight or a late arrival. Also, you can basically walk to the main attractions in Athens and the street itself where the hostel is is unique, with many restaurants and shops. The room was so clean and smelt nice. The lady who did my check in and check out was so kind and nice, she makes sure you make the most of the city. I didnt see any lockers in my room but for me it was OK.

    It was pretty nice, especially the location. There were no security lockers though which made me nervous. Beds are hard but not impossible to sleep on. WiFi isn’t great. The staff is very friendly and the local restaurants and shops are fantastic.
