After a long day and a stressful drama getting to Greece, it was a relief to arrive at 4am to friendly and helpful staff! The location couldn't have been more perfect. Really easy to get to from the airport, even if unfamiliar with the city. Central to public transport, not that it really matters as most of the main landmarks... More

Some staff members are helpful and friendly. However, the room we had did not worth the price we paid. We didn't expect the room as good as the pictures shown in the website, but the difference was really huge. Besides, some bathrooms are so dark and without a intact curtain.

Super friendly personnel with good English - changed the room to suit our request with no problem, were always ready to help. Great location in the center, all the places of interest are walking distance. They also provide laundry (for additional price) which is very good because we had a long stay. Very good value for the price offered.

Place was clean and comfortable, I stayed with friends in a private 3 bed room, very clean and decent amenities. Breakfast was also good, get there early for... More

If you dont mind too much about great facilities, but want to be in the center and in a safe area then go here. I visited this place at the end of January which is low season and therefore lower prices. It was extremely cheap and i was very happy with it. I left early so did not have time... More

I stayed in this hostel for 2 nights well by choosing an accommodation that would be cheap and close to the major monuments in Athens attractions. Well this was a perfect choice, I chose the double beds room but remember that the bathroom was shared but in front of my room. Score 10 for the location , the distance is... More

Dads local stomping ground. An ecentric place with an eccentric owner. My bunk room had been conveyed from I'm guess a bathroom as there was a soap holder on my tiled walls beside my head when lying on my bunk bed. Good location. You get what you pay for. Breaky included etc :) hostel not hotel though! Good Christmas trip... More

My room was freezing and smelt of old cigarette smoke; the faded linens were kind of dirty; the only outlet was four feet up the far wall; and the rest of the grotty furniture looked like it came out of the Salvation Army reject pile. The Wi-Fi was so weak as to be unusable and there was no soap in... More
