Bed bugs. Room 12. Don't risk it. Staff first said that they would clean the room, and then moved me to another room only when I insisted that I wouldn't spend another night in that room. Staff also made comments that the bites were probably from mosquitoes, until I produced a dead bed bug to show them. I'd recommend this... More

Myself and two friends stayed here comfortably. There is free wifi and the staff is very nice. He even let us use his computer to look up ferry times because we did not have our own. He helped us get a cab and everything. The location is good, but make sure you look closely at the street signs because it... More

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.

Stayed at this place during the strikes in May. Made arrangements in advance online, very helpful staff. Great location (just around the corner from La Placa. 10 minutes walk from the Acropolis.). 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
