This place was amazing! I am from the United States, but am currently living in Italy for a semester abroad. A few friends and I went to Athens for the weekend and stayed at this hostel not knowing what we would find. We were immediately greeted by an amazingly friendly man who also kept us at the counter for a bit and gave us a run down of the city. He marked up a map of places to go, places to not go, and even what was too expensive for food! Amazing!
