The hotel is fine for budget travel- old but clean. The issue is that the street it is in is very dangerous. Crowded with men- and only men. Hundreds of them doing.... I don't know what. When I arrived at this hotel my taxi driver got out and opened my door and escorted me into the hotel for my own... More

The hotel is average, its clean and ok, really.. but as long as you stay in it and don't go out. the street where the hotel is, is so awful that you can see people literally taking drugs in the middle of the street and pickpocketing or just scaring the passers out of nowhere. i mean, its not quite pleasant...

This hotel is very basic and therefore cheap and not in the best area of Athens as it is surrounded by sex shops and the streets are pretty dirty. Having said that, the area has a lot of character and there are some very cool bars at the end of the road before you reach Plaka. The Plaka area and... More

I stayed at this hotel in August 2007 for three nights. I was traveling alone and got a single room which was very basic and clean. For sixty US dollars a night I can't complain especially since breakfast is included. The staff are very nice and are willing to point things out on a map and give you directions. The... More

My friend and I (both single women in our mid-20s) were put here by our travel agent. First big sign something was wrong: As we were navigating the Omonoia Square Neighborhood trying to find the hotel (and looking like the typical American tourists with our big backpacks and map) a police officer stopped us and asked if he could help...

put quite simply the other reviews sum the situation up very accurately but i will add my two bobs worth.. the street is dangerous and smells like urine, there are thugs that crowd the road right in front of the establishment, they will eye you off very closely while you check in and out, there are drug dealers and prositutes...

Our travel agent booked this hostel for us which was far from any sort of main city locations down dirty, sketchy, urine-filled streets lined with bold street vendors. Staff spoke little-to-no English and were not very friendly. Rooms were large but dimly lit, had poor beds and linens, and street-noise was overwhelming throughout the entire night and into the morning...On... More

After staying at the Athens Hilton for a conference (a great hotel!), I paid far too much to stay at this dump. My room was around A$200 a night and for that I got a fuzzy TV set, the world's smallest shower, a shared bathroom in which paper could not be flushed, and the kind of bed and carpetting common...
