After reading so many reviews about how 'dodge' the area was and how bad the hostel was, I was pleasantly surprised to find that it was exactly what I paid for, I can't fault it at all.
Its about a 20 min walk to Monastraki, where everything that you 'need' to see in Athens is, including the Acropolis and lots and lots of bars and night life.
Its true that the area is slightly shady, I did see a lot of prostitutes, but no drug taking, and at the end of the day that is just the sort of crime that occurs continuously across European capital cities.
Maybe coming from East London meant that I found this area no more unconfortable than walking home through Bethnal Green.
Most importantly the staff are wonderful, helpful and funny, you just cant ask for more, especially at the price you pay.
