Reasonable hostel with lots of the basic facilities you would want. They were installing more wifi while we were there to boost the signal to the upper floors. The front rooms look out over a touristy street in the centre of Athens, walking distance to the Acropolis. The back rooms look out over the hostel courtyard/bar and main socialising area... More

This hostel is located in Plaka, on the street that takes you to the Acropolis and with all the restaurants and shops you need. The location is just the best. From the airoport to hostel is about an hour drive with bus X95, and about 10 min walk from Syntagma Sq. If you need a good location and you are... More

Good: Great location, good price for the location. Pretty clean, decent wi-fi. Cheap beer. Nice terasse in the back. Staff is nice, helpful. It's easy to meet people there. Bad: No hot water whatsoever in the showers during entire stay. Toilets were super hard to flush; we had to press multiple times, which was super loud and so at night... More

I booked an 8-bed dorm and chose it over a second reservation I ended up canceling on advice from hostellers in Istanbul who said that there were no good ones. For €16 and breakfast extra I expected simple but decent accommodations. The reception folks were great until they gave me directions up and around and down ... To a dungeon.... More

Sent my daughter here with her girl friend, and I meet them a few days later. Setup reservation before hand and I usually recommend to my daughter to pay with a credit card if possible so she doesn't have to carry a lot of cash. Of course had reservation guaranteed with a credit card, and when if came time to... More

The location of this hostel is amazing! It is right in the heart of Athens, around 10 minutes walking distance from Syntagma Metro station which is one of the big stations connecting to the Piraeus Port and the airport. The Acropolis Museum and other major attractions are also within walking distance. However, the beds in the room are old. I... More

After my month of staying in many hostels throughout Western Europe, this one ranks among the highest in terms of friendly and helpful staff, ability to meet fellow travellers, and location. The common area is great, access to rooms is easy, and it couldn't be in a better location. Facilities are nothing special and bathrooms could be improved, but room... More

Good thing out of the way first - location is great, literally ten minutes from the Acropolis and Syntagma Square (and therefore the metro system/airport bus stop). Downsides, though... the shower is horrible (doesn't stay on the wall, sprays all over the place, the door doesn't really lock, etc etc), the beds are not comfortable (pillow is too thin, mattress...

This is no 5 star hotel, but the staff is incredibly helpful and nice and the rooms are comfortable. It's really close to the Parthenon and the metro. We did not have to take a cab our entire stay and saw everything we wanted to. Beware the sit down restaurants in the area as they can be pricey.

Stayed in dormitory of 4 persons. We can enjoy hot shower, Internet access, and some directions to walk around Athens. Room was very clean, neat and cute. This hostel is in Krdathineon street. There are a lot of restautants,taverna,cafe and shops. So cute street. But restaurants around this hostel make a mess till midnight. So you may not sleep well... More
