Arrived after a long day of travel to find out they had given our room away because they had tried to get payment four days prior, but it declined because my card number had changed. I had already put a deposit down on the room and on the confirmation form through hostelbookers it said pay remaining balance upon arrival, so... More

Stayed there for three nights, 2 of them on the lobby floor cuz the hostel was overbooked. Was nice that I only had to pay 5€ for the nights on the floor but still, LOADS OF BEDBUGS! The owner is a sometimes friendly, but very strange guy! I wouldn't visit this hostel again!

Pros - affordable, good location, not strict on check out, each bed has its own fan. Cons - staff don't give you any assistance (they don't even have maps), lobby smells like cigarette smoke, shower room is always flooded. I wouldn't stay here again if I came back to Athens but if all you need is a bed then this... More

I had an excellent few days here. The staff were very friendly and easy to get along with. The hostel was kept very clean all the time. It is an easy walk down to the main touristy part of Athens. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay.

dark and grimm, scarry host, does not care about anything, you have to pay for a towel. Full of bed buggs or something else that bites me. We can't cancel. Cigaret smoke everywhere and smell like dumpsters. No good reason to stay there, did i mentioned bed buggs?!

The hosts dont care much about anything... they dont provide you with any information about Athens, and most of the time you have to ring a bell and wait for them to come, and it can take a long time. I payed for a single room, and the first night I had to sleep in a share room because my... More

Upon arrival to the hotel "lobby", which was completely dark with people sleeping on every surface, we were greeted by a scary man who ordered us to sit down, somehow not realizing that there was no place to sit. He then took us into the dirty kitchen and told us that, although it was past the time we were supposed... More

I booked for a few days, but ended up extending because I was so comfortable. I had a little work I needed to do and this place was quiet with none of those jarring interruptions in the usual hostel experience. The wifi was great, and the manager was more than nice, even asking if I had slept well, which I... More

Great experience all round! From fantastic internet with printing facilities, to the kitchen, to the balconies and general great atmosphere. We booked for 3 nights initially then another 3 - and left our bags in their storage room (all no problem & super easy). The staff speak very good English & really know how to make you feel welcome &... More

This place...I have two minds about it. First the good. Great wi-fi in rooms. Nice bright rooms. There was also a really nice balcony with table to eat breakfast. View was just other buildings. Beds are comfy. If you are coming from Albania, the place where the buses drop you off is pretty close walking distance. The hostel is also... More
