Lo mejor del hostal es su ubicación, después lo demás estuvo muy bien sobre todo los empleados que fueron muy amables y serviciales.

Intoxicated & drugged "students" play music so loudly they have to shout at each other until 3 am in the garden room. There is no way you can quiet them. It was not every night but 3 out of 4 nights.

La ubicación es ideal, para los días de calor deben mejorar los aires acondicionados

Everything was as described. You cannot beat the neighborhood and location, just an easy ten to fifteen minute walk to the Acropolis Museum and the entrance to the Acropolis. Surrounded by great cafes and near Europe's second oldest distillery, making their own ouzo and brandy. A fantastic value for the location.

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.
