3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

Completely acceptable for budget-minded travelers and right around the corner from the Plaka. Be warned tho, it is a walk up. Room was bare but completely clean, as was the bathroom (in-room). We were on the street side so it was quite noisy with the windows open. Old style Athens plumbing which is a bit of shock to our north american sensibilities, but still found everywhere except new or higher end properties. Old, but again, completely clean. Warm, friendly and accomodating staff

Even if you dont stay here, I highly recommend you use Consolas tours (consulas@hol.gr / www.consolas.gr) downstairs. Theo couldnt have been more warm and welcoming and bent over backwards for us. We walked in off the street late on the first afternoon, told him what we wanted to do in Athens and the next morning came back for a COMPLETE itinerary at a very reasonable price for everything. A trip to Delphi, an overnight to Naxos, ferry to Italy, 2 nights at Hotel Fivos including all transfers to and from ferries, buses, taxis, hotel, etc. Thanks for everything Theo......from the "germans" teacher and business woman!

Room Tip: dont get the street side if you are a light sleeper and dont like the hustle and bustle of the Plaka...

Was supposed to stay there for a period of two weeks but could hardly handle one night. Photos of the rooms are misleading, stained walls, some hair on the floor/bed, no working heating (3 old blankets were provided though), very old mattress, humidity smell in the room and I could go on. The worst though was the indifferent, cocky attitude from the manager (like talking to a wall, does not accept any comments), the other stuff was nice though. It is very close to monastiraki station but the it is not worth it, way friendlier hostels around.

Room Tip: Do not count on the pictures- they are totally misleading.

We've stayed at Fivos in July 2012. Certainly not a pleasant stay but it was the cheapest option. But don't be tempted by the price, because they are THIEFS!
7 months after our stay they debited my creditcard with 315€! DON'T USE YOUR CREDITCARD BECAUSE THEY WILL COPY YOUR CARD!

Stayed here march 2011 for 4 nights, as headline says 7.50euros a night, aint gonna complain, for the price this hotel was exactly what we expected, mebbe better, location was spot on for travelling around the athens area and superb for walking about at nite, wi oor carry oot.... This trip was with my m8 not a family hol, so didnt need the nice restaurant and fancy accom, we had a great time, bottle of ouzo, can of beer and shanks pony through Athens at nite and it was superb, forget all the recent troubles, its a def place worth visiting, the Acropolis is an awesome monument to the world and is a must see, and you can see it from hotel fivos. Take a trip to Vouliagmeni, visit the lake see the beach, go 2 piraeus, and enjoy the greek people, so nice. I will return 1day and i will stay here again.

Fivos located in the downtown center facing main biz street. The dormitory room's good without upper bunk, the free breakfast was excellent including bread, milk, coffee, fruit etc.
Plenty of toilet, shower.
Canteen available all day for eating, reading, online surfing, chatting etc.
Staff was very helpful with many useful advices, 1 of which reminded me taking metro instead of shuttle bus to airport to avoid traffic caused by local demonstration.
The only negative thing is the room's too hot, a/c not working at all.

Good value for money, perfect location and acceptable breakfast. Lovely staff, but HOT rooms! Air condition does not really work. I had to get upp and take a shower in the night, because I was so swetty.

Very small bed and bathroom, but clean. Our room did not overlook the street, so it was not loud; we did have to walk up 4 flights though (no elevator)! Breakfast was so-so, nothing special. Front desk staff were quite helpful though! And the location is fantastic...right in the heart of the city, the perfect location for sight-seeing.
