Great location! first night 8 May, got room 15, end corridor of floor one; we got a small room that fit for one person, when we threatened to leave! Impossible. moved to room 3 on 2 floor.Amnesties are so bad! We had an attack of bees in the room, mattress are so old, with holes you fall in, the water tank above the toilet was dropping water while me sited on th toilet. AC not working making noise do not chill. The plastic cover of the toilet smaller than the toilet, o charge $ 68 Outrageous.

the best location in Athens. half a day can be spent in just wandering around hostel, going to Monastiraki and enjoying flea markets. Staff is very helpful. Breakfast (not included) is basic and though not elaborate, does the job. Rooms and premise are clean. We stayed in private double room and found it very congested. But not all rooms are similar, I guess.Staff at reception suggested us wonderful options to eat and to go around exploring.Would come here again for location and friendly staff.

My stay was very enjoyable. The receptionist who checked us in was super friendly/helpful and the location couldn't have been better because it was within walking distance to most of the major sites (and located near a lot of great restaurants/shops). The only issue I saw was the showers. Water spills out all of the place and the excess water needs mopped up since there's no outside drain. I would either extend the shower curtain or make the showers slightly bigger to prevent water from exiting.

Staff was very very kindly! Room was so clean. Wifi can be used speedly. That's so good point. I used shower which was in same room with toilet......I think, you should set shower curtain there. If I use shower, I had to clean toilet.
