The value for money is nok and the hostel is very old, breakfast very poor. The rooms located in the avenue are very noisy and the mattres wasn't comfortable due to the springs. The toilet needs to be renewed and it is very small, the water from the shower reached the room. There is no air conditioning and the room... More

I had a chance to spend 2 days at Fivos. Very average across the board. Nice roof top bar. Over priced. Staff was ok. Ideal location. They have a daily tour that is very informative and a good way to meet other travelers. One of the better Hostels I've stayed at in Europe. Definitely not the best though.

Fivos was more or less an hostel instead of a hotel, everything was quiet basic. My friend and I stayed in a double bedroom with private bathroom. What I liked about this hotel were the location (next to metro Monastiraki, the walking distance to the Acropolis, very nice square with cute restaurants next to it.), the breakfast (though sometimes old...

I dont understand why this hotel gets quite such a bad press on tripadvisor. Myself and a freind stayed at the hotel in June costing us each £7.50 per night. Granted the room didnt really have much to offer but we had an ensuite room and the facilities within the hotel were upto the standard we expected. The hotel has... More

Stayed two nights here with friends. Rooms were basic but sufficient and good, considering the price. Hotel Fivos was a great base from which to explore Athens, in particular, the Acropolis. The bathrooms are a bit small, and the showers do not have very high pressure, but this was not a major concern of mine. The staff at the front... More

There are only two positive features about this "Hotel". It is centrally located, just a minute walk from Monastiraki Square which is one of the main tourist attraction in Athens. The second one is the staff, everyone is extremely helpful. Everything else is not good, my room was on the main street and I had a few sleepless nights. It... More

Hotel Fivos is hard to criticise because it's such a cheap price and such an amazing location . It's right By the acropolis and next to Monastiraki station. It has good wifi, an amazing free luggage facility and a travel agent downstairs ready to help you to the islands or to explore around Athens. I only paid thirty euro for... More

Nothing fancy but very basic accommodation and cheap. Across the road from all the major shops, restaurants, attractions, flea market and you can see the Acropolis from the street. Internet/pc facilites. If you're on a very tight budget, try this place. Don't expect 5* accommodation though. The staff were very friendly to me and very helpful. I stayed for 3... More

Staying in Psirri / Gazi

Neighborhood Profile
Psirri / Gazi
Side-by-side neighborhoods Psirri and Gazi provide some of the city’s prime nightlife. The almost claustrophobic streets of Psirri feature an interesting blend of original small businesses with the restaurants, cafés and bars that have recently sprouted up. The central artery of Agion Anargiron Street has lively places to eat or drink. Further west, you can visit the peaceful ancient cemetery of Keramikos, then cross busy Pireos Street to find yourself in Gazi. With the huge Technopolis performance and art complex converted from old gasworks at its heart, you really have to come at night to appreciate this maze of bars at its best, although a daytime stroll will allow you to admire the excellent street art.
