This hostel is pretty average. It is however located in a central area, close to tubes, has a good air-con and very cheap beers. You definitely get what you pay for! The small flooding showers are also a tad annoying but for a couple of nights, it's not that bad!

Our Greece holiday got off to a rocky start. Our orignial accommodation (Athens House Hostel) had given our prebooked room away and the alternative accommodation they arranged for us was a complete dud (Hotel Argo)... so we thought we'd try our luck with Athens International Youth Hostel. Unfortunately they were completely booked out, however the man on reception was incredibly... More

My cousins and I stayed here for a few days while we were backpacking. We were fortunate enough to get our room upgraded to the suite on the 7th floor. As it was the only room on that floor, we had our own huge balcony on the rooftop, as well as a huge king sized bed and private ensuite. Our... More

My trip to Athens was for business and I did some shopping. I had a room with private toilet. The hostel is located in a low-income suburb. It doesn't look like as a safe neighborhood, but I never felt threatened in any way. There are metro (underground) and bus/trolly stations in the nearby. The staff was nice but a little... More

We stayed here on the last day of our tour. As the Athens Studios where we stayed earlier didn't have any places left. The hostel is located in the run down area of Athens, with lot of homeless people, graffiti on the wall and stinky streets. You will feel unsafe walking down the street in dark. The room we stayed...

It was very cheap and a fairly good vibe. I stayed there for 2 nights and didn't have any real problems. Staff are friendly enough and I was able to cook food despite the kitchen being kinda dirty. It's not in the best part of Athens so I wouldn't recommend going out alone at night.

I only stayed here for one night as the was the meeting point for a tour early the next morning. It served its purpose, and was cheap, but I would not have stayed otherwise. I wouldn't recommend staying here unless you're desperate, or on a tight budget. The area isn't very nice, but it is close to a metro stop.... More

Hostel is situated in a very bad area of Athens, very dangerous for alone traveller. Peoples who work inside are very kind, but rooms are horribles, smalls and dirty. The hostel is very cheap, but in front of the placement and the accomodation, I suggest to select a better place, in spite of more expensive.

OK, It's cheap comparing with the rest of the places, but the rooms are incredibly small, bathroom is a nightmare and it's not that clean. Hot water is only in some hours of the day (didn't find out which, but night is not included). Some employees are nice but not all of them. It's near the metro station, but the... More

I stayed one night and being bited by mosquitoes and couldn't sleep well. It is not bad hostel in fact, but the area is not so clean and that is why many mosquitoes are there, if someones in your room open the door in the night to enjoy fresh air, you might face the consequences of mosquitoes bites.
