this is the most horrible experience ever. after paid the reservation fee with my kredit card, i paid the rest 17 euro by reception. but after i returned from greece, i found out this hostel charged from my card another 17 euro, already before my arrival! i've booked hotels from budgetplaces a bunch of times and have never been charged...

Cosy hostel and friendly service! Really great hostel for a low price. It`s an ideal variant for tourists who stay for 2-3 nights in Athens. The only disadvantage is a dangerous area of it`s location.

Terrible hostel. Location is far from everywhere, run down and scary at night. Huge argument going on when I arrived late at night. Two young exhausted women were being told that despite their reservations there were no beds available for them. For some reason, as a solo traveller I could be accommodated. No locks on rooms, we barricaded ourselves in... More

we booked this hostel as a stopover before heading to the airport in the morning, arrived to a creepy dark dingy lounge room with unhelpful and very strange staff. free airport transfers were advertised when we asked about these they said they had were no longer available. Arrived at 6pm taken to our room and told that 2 of the... More

We stayed one week there and they changed our room 3 times, becase they were overwhelmed with tourists. Also, didn't get the change back, the room was 90 euro and we payed 100...... Also, the son's owner is a bit weird, not speaking, but always around in the kitchen when someone was using it. As well, in the kitchen you... More

I've stayed in a lot of hostels, but never one this bad. The whole hostel, from the streets, the lift to the bedroom and bathroom feels like a horror movie set. No joke, the bathrooms looked like the set from the first saw film. Agreed the location is great to get to the main sites but to get to them... More

Very basic hotel, you get what you pay for, but be warned, you're in the centre of the red light district & Ormonia metro station is crawling with pick pockets. Although the sheets & room were clean, the air conditioning worked & there was hot water, as long as you didn't mind the sewage smell coming up the drains in... More

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
