Nice, France2 contributions
I stayed in Welcommon Hostel this summer and had a great time: great location close to the center and the monuments and a lot of nice places to eat and have a drink, I liked the atmosphere, the friendly staff, interacting with various volunteers taking part in social activities and the refugees from all over the world who came to learn or take part in activities. A great place with a noble mission which deserves all our support!

I love this hostel and especially the girl who wears the birds in her hair at reception. If your looking to meet some like minded humanitarians then you will find that here. The staff are friendly and helpful and a simple breakfast is provided to keep you going. The rooms are cleaned every day I was here. There is some opportunities to offer some activities/ entertainment or workshops here in the class rooms and common area they have on site where some local lessons take place in languages etc. I would come again. Thanks

Pick another hostel in athens...I stayed here with my cousins for one night in June 2019 and it was miserable. The staff was generally friendly and their English was good. However, our room’s (408) air conditioning did not work at all. We had to open the window to get any semblance of fresh air, which was an invitation for bugs and mosquitos all night long. It is also noisy! Cars and motorcycles zoom down the street into the late hours. The WiFi did not work in the lobby or in the rooms, and we did not receive any instructions of how to fix it. The beds are what you can expect from a hostel, but the towels had small hairs all over them along with stains from prior users. The kitchen was also a wreck and the stench of left over food permeated throughout the common spaces. This was my first hostel experience in Athens, and although this place is cheap, I can assure you that your money will be better spent elsewhere.

Dear We don't know why you say that you did not receive any instruction on how to fix wi-fi. Have you asked the reception for this? It happens with some mobiles, it is not a problem of the wi-fi network. But in any case we are ready to help our clients. Sorry, but we have never seen until now such a negative comment, that the Hostel is miserable. Maybe you used the kitschen immediately after the use of it by anothe guest, but the kitschen is a new and clean one, although it is the rensonisbility of all the users to keep it clean, we have also asked the cleaning - team to care to clean the kitschen. For the air-condition, have you asked the reception if you had a problem, in order to show you how it works? It is a central cooling system. About the towels, we give them to a speciai company in order to clean and sterilize them, but if you had any problem you had to ask for a new one. have you asked the reception for a new one? As you know we have 24/7 reception service and if our clients have any problem, they can ask the eceptionists for help. Thank you for your comments, although maybe a bit hard, we will check if there was any problem in the period you stayed in our hostel. In any case we care to improve our services.
