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

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
