This hostel had a great atmosphere, friendly staff and clean rooms. The wifi was impossible to connect to however. Pretty average for a hostel but in a nice area to walk around. Close to Syntagma square. I had a good experience but only stayed two nights.

We stayed here because the hostel we booked didn't have a room. For a place to sleep its ok but the toilets were blocked, no wifi in rooms, rooms tiny, smelled of smoke, very dated, felt like a rabbit warren. Only upside is central location, affordability, breakfast is good (although you have to pay extra). Make sure you get good... More

recommended by Athens travel guide but it was a complete let down. we arrived at 10:30am and was told that they are under staffed and we'll have to wait a couple hours. We waited 4hours without any update regarding our rooms and not offered a discount for the inconvenience. We stayed in a 4 bunk dorm which has two keys... More

This is my second time staying here, and I would definitely recommend this hostel! The rooms are very affordable, and the location is unbeatable, right in the heart of Plaka. There are plenty of restaurants and shops steps away from the hostel, and you can easily get to any main attractions in Athens from this spot. Rooms are clean and... More

This hostels location is perfect! Right in Plaka one of the oldest regains of athens right below the Acropolis. Really central and really close transport links to out of the main areas. The staff were wonderful and the rooms were really clean. Would definitely recommend to others.

This is no 5 star hostel! But it gives you exactly what you need - bed, food, hot shower, security, and it is in the perfect location for Athens. From this hostel you could easily do Athens in a day! We were very pleased with it! 8 minute walk from the bus from the airport - acropolis is 5 minute... More

Amazing location in the heart of everything - Akropolis, Ermou, Syntagma, Monastiraki, & Ceramicos! Of course this is not a 4 star property.. It's a great hostel off the price exactly where you want to experience Athens.. The folks are great and loved that my 3 teens had learned some essential Greek phrases. Poli Kala! The hookah Garden bar at... More

I was unable to board my ferry at 7am for Santorini due to the Hostel's mistake. I requested for a taxi at 6.15am but the next morning when I was at the reception, the taxi still had not arrived. I only managed to board the taxi at 6.40am and was made to share that taxi with another traveller from my... More

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
