Great location: within walking distance to Akropolis and metro station, nice rooftop terrace and social room inside, very friendly and helpful staff, the perfect low-budget option for solo travelers to explore Athens, quiet safe neighbourhood (except of garbage truckin the early morning), kitchen and fridge that you can use (in non-covid times), nice tavernas nearby, also have three double rooms for a good price

In Thisios,close to Acropolis,Plaka and Monastiraki,quaintly decorated.Friendly staff.Lets dismiss some of the previous reviews- all rooms are spotless-kitchen is clean and funcionable unless you intend to perform heart surgery- the sheets are covered with a dust sheet so only when the guest arrives are the clean bed sheets exposed which are freshly laundered and stain free.The door,which is a double door only sticks if you attempt to open the wrong one. Only downside no tea or coffee provided during the day.Showers and toilets clean. Lovely roof top seating and bar area. Reccommended.

The people were nice and friendly. Location feels safe and is in a good spot for site seeing and metro. The kitchen needed a deep clean. Our sheets in the 6 bed dorm had many stains, which was very off-putting. We chose the room with aircon, but wouldn't recommend as there are no windows so it gets really stuffy and a bit smelly. Also the door doesn't open properly and gets stuck. Overall, would try our luck elsewhere next time. (Or if this is the cheapest you can find, choose the room with windows!)

Loved our little apartment here! We had the 'Master Sweet' and it literally had everything we needed. 3 nights here and we were able to get everywhere on foot. Nice little rooftop and common room. Friendly helpful staff. The other rooms looked very clean and modern

Friendly crew welcomes you in a good accommodation hostel : shared room had AC, you can use the kitchen and enjoy some fresh air up on the terrasse. Located in a small and quiet street near to the acropole, you are about 10min away from plaka by foot and 5min away a metro station.
