“Great hostel in a dodgy neighborhood”
Reviewed September 20, 2013 via mobile

This is a great hostel.. I only stayed a few nights after hopping the Greek islands but they had everything I needed.. Washing machines, wifi, computers and nice rooms with ensuites. Not a huge fan of Athens especially this area is very dodgy especially at night all shops have bars and garage doors .. Just take care when going to and from the hostel especially at night (though they do have good security.. Door always shut.. Need key cards to get into reception etc)

after a lot bad reviews about staying near amonia square, i was happy to find this hostel located around the corner from all the major attractions and also near the markets and fantastic restraunts. our room was also amazing as we had a 4 bed private with an ensuite and air con, and literally the only complaint we could possibly make would be the wifi cutting in and out which isn't much of an issue anyway. great views from the rooftop bar, 2 for 1 drinks in happy hour. wouldn't stay anywhere else in athens!!

I worked in this hostel for a month. The staff where enthusiastic and friendly, a joy to work with. The location is perfect. Very central and next to the metro. The only thing that could improve the hostel is if the WiFi was more reliable. The best thing however is the rooftop bar! You wont find much better views in the whole city. You can get some food and a drink and you will always find people to talk to. This is a great hostel!

AthenStyle is a ok for 1 - 2 nights and if you want to be in the center of the action. But any longer than that, you'll find that the small tiny room and bathroom just gets to you. It's air conditioned and the rooftop is a pretty cool area to chill out. The staff are just ok but speak good English. I did not meet any travelers here because they usually just stay the night and leave at 4am in the morning for their respective tours! I didn't have a decent night sleep for the entire 3 nights that I was there. But hey - I was on a budget and it did the job. Will not return to the hostel.

AthenStyle is a decent hostel if you're looking for a place to stay in a good location near Monasteraki Square. However, the bathrooms for the shared rooms weren't clean at all, and the value for money wasn't great, considering the very basic quality of the rooms. But the staff were really friendly and spoke great English. The rooftop has an absolutely beautiful view of Athens -- definitely worth going up there to watch the sun set over the Acropolis. The reception area is nice, but the wifi barely works.

The localization of the hostel is excellent-a walking distance from the historical sites, art fair and restaurants of the Casaba. The veranda and the roof (where breakfast is served) overlook the Acropolis.
The room was clean and large. A luggage room could have solved problems of logistics, when you go out of town for more than a day.
We had problems with the air conditioner, twice, but they were fixed within an hour or two. The crew was attentive and helpful.
