    This is a great, central location. I stayed in a private room which was very clean and pretty spacious. The staff were very helpful when I needed to book a taxi to the airport. For legal reasons (I presume Covid-related), the hostel bar was not open whilst I was there, so I cannot comment on the social aspect of the place ( I was only there briefly anyway, so I am the wrong person to ask on this point). I would recommend this place.

    one key per room is a bit weird. Had some grumpy old guy mouth off to me because I didn’t want to wake my roommate up to get in my room at 5 am lol. Clean and safe place to stay though

    Very Good

    17 Apr 2022
    Ideal location for exploring Athens and its historic sites. The rooms are very basic and the beds are not very comfortable, but it's clean enough. There was quite a lot of noise from other guests in the hallways late at night. Good location for backpackers on a budget if you don't mind loud places and minimal amenities.

    Good

    16 Nov 2021
    Pros Good shower Good location Clean bed linen Cons Everything not in the pro list. Reception was rude. Tried to charge me the city tax despite saying it was included. No heating despite it being cold. Have to leave the key every time you go out. I wouldn't recommend this hostel and I wouldn't stay here again. Was shouted at because they didn't speak English when I asked for a towel.
