There were no lockers in the room I was in despite the fact that it said online that there are lockers in the rooms. When I asked if the hostel was a HI hostel they said it wasn't. They therefore did not give me the HI discount for being a member. I emails the USA HI office asking them if this indeed is an HI hostel and they confirmed it was. Am I not entitled to a discount as a HI member?

La conexion wifi se corta permanentemente y el sistema de aire acondicionado es muy mal ya que si mantienes la ventana cerrada funciona a full y te mueres de calor y si la abres se apaga directamente. Tambien encuentro extraño que no me hayas realizado ningun descuento por ser socio de HiHostels. Pague lo mismo que aquellos que no lo eran. Hasta el momento no me ha traido ningun beneficio ser socio. Por ultimo, si deseas pagar con tarjeta de credito te cargan un 3% mas al importe final.

Budget meal tip

Siehe Tripadvisor. Auf jeden Fall meiden würden wir das Café Lato etwa 200m rechts vom Hostel. Empfehlenswert ist Psarras für Gyros und mehr am Monastiraki-Platz und Jogolicious mit dem besten Frozen-Yoghurt.
