I stayed here for 5 nights recently in a 6 bed ensuite dorm, room was clean bed was comfy, the shower was handheld which was a bit awkward and went hot and cold sometimes and the radiator in dorm was noisey.
The location is great within walking distance of most of Athens sights and only steps from the metro station. The staff were helpful and the 6 Euro walking tour was very good value.
The breakfst was basic but plentiful, I enjoyed toast with cream cheese and boiled eggs on top, tea and coffee available all day. The wi-fi was good and available throughout hostel, free.
The rooftop bar was closed so went to the Sports bar but not very much atmosphere but it was out of season.
Dorm had lockers but you need to take a padlock with you.
I would definately go again as was good value for the facilities and location.
