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

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
