I was arrived quite late by subway. I need to walk about 15 mins from Omonia station. The receptionist speak not good english, but he did his best to greet me. He even make efforts to fine change for my 50 EUR bill. The next day was a bit strange. The showers, are pretty good. Old, but all worked. The... More

When we got out of the airport we had a taxi bring us here. The taxi driver even mentioned that this wasn't in a great location. When we arrived our fears were confirmed. The owner showed us to our room, which smelled horribly. The showers were..okay. Myself and my girlfriend were staying in a room by ourselves and it was... More

I've spent lots of times in various cheap hostels, so I more or less know, what can I get for 10 euro. But it was first time I was in such deep shock. This hostel needs renovation more than anything else - especially the common space (shower is a disaster, kitchen is ugly and dirty, they're asking you to wash... More

The place was very clean. The rooms were in a good shape, so was the bathroom. Pricen were more than reasonable. The impression of our stay was devastated by the contact with the owner. We had to sleep in an another histel our first night. It was terribly noisy! Another thing is the smoking policy. They smoke everywhere! In the... More

A friend and I were traveling to Athens but hadn't booked ahead of time. Budget was the primary concern, and budget is the primary value of Athens House. We read the reviews beforehand, so we knew what we were getting into, and that's important: if you need the cheapest place possible in the center of Athens and you don't care... More

This hostel was awful. There were prostitutes in the neighborhood and tons of trash and abandoned buildings. I felt so unsafe. This feeling intensified as we got to the hostel by a old rickety elevator that didn't even have a door on it. The receptionist was rude, unhelpful and reeked of smoke. She smoked right in the lounge and it... More
