As I sit writing this review I am watching the bed bugs crawl across my pillow. Yes, plural bed bugS. The area outside is intimidating loud and scary for a woman traveling on my own. Only one elevator works. But don't take the stairs.... You don't want to see what the lower floors look like (it looks like a prison).... More

The only thing this place had going for it was it's cheapness. The hostel is directly opposite a brothel and the area is generally seedy and at times very intimidating. The hostel itself was dirty, absolutely stank of smoke and didn't even provide bedding. There was very little hot water and the bathroom facilities were both outdated and grubby. Fortunately...

Very friendly owner, nice position and well served by public transport. Bathrooms only in common but no big deal. Some posh guys could say it's a bit dirty but hey, you get what you pay for. Very good quality/price ratio. Resumed: 80% quality 90% Sure i'll come back

The room was terribly dirty and cold. The facilities are old, which wouldn't be that much of a problem if the room was clean. It's cheap, granted, but I'd definitely pay a couple of euros more and stay elsewhere. The neighborhood is not the best either. It's close to Omonia station and E. Venizelos avenue, but that's it.

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

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
