It's cheap, it's basic, it's a hostel! The neighborhood is pretty quiet but you can walk up to the plaza where there is an amazing restaurant that of course, I forget the name of! I stayed here twice so it can't be too bad. If it's cheap and near a train station, it's a good place to stay! They also... More

I spent 10 days there mainly for budget reasons. However, the staff is great. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and it's fairly accessible. The neighbor appears sketchy, but actually it isn't bad. Two subway lines are within 5 minutes, and there are good services nearby. For the money, you really cant find anything nicer.

I can't exactly remember why we chose this hostel. I am pretty surprised it is even mentioned in books such as Rough Guides and Lets Go. The positives: free welcome drink, free breakfast, free internet, hot shower, air conditioning. The negatives: extremely rude man at the front desk, rude lady who serves the breakfast, dangerous light fixtures which if you... More

The staff at Aphrodite are extremely helpful. They went above and beyond to help us with touring around Greece and even gave us suggestions for travelling in other destinations. The atmosphere was very friendly, and though the bar downstairs wasn't anything exciting it was still easy to get to know people. The rooms themselves are not that great, and the... More

Our room had an air condition, but it was broken. The room was about 30 degrees all night, and the hostel provided... More

After traveling for 6 months I think we know what a good quality hostel is. This one meets the criteria of a good one. Quite neighbourhood (unique Greek experience). The hostel offers a cheap simple breakfast, there are lost of supermarkets around the area if you want to pick something. Unfortuantely, the hostel doesn't have a kitchen. Hey, you are... More

It's located in a quieter residetial area, not too far from the main sights. The staff is super friendly. The conditions of the rooms/showers above average for a hostel. The best thing about Hostel Aphrodite is provably the good value for money. It was awarded the "best value hostel in Athens" by Balkan - Hostels .biz .ly. If you are... More
