I had an awesome time in Athens. The people in the hostel here were helpful, friendly, and always down to hangout and chat. The neighborhood is incredibly interesting, although I'm a very large male, and so that should be taken into consideration.

This hostel is located at the a very unpleasant part of Athens with junkies roaming the street. Feels very unsafe for a solo female traveller. I left after 1 night (I booked 7) and couldn’t get any of my money back, as I paid a deposit through HI Hostels and not directly through them. The breakfast was sad and the shower/washrooms looked unclean and very unwelcoming, so I didn’t bother showering the night I was there. This experience left me disappointed by the level of hostels HI offers, and I’m not sure I’ll be using this service again.

Besides thriller emplacement the very special character of Welcommon Hostel is due to the social project it backs, concerning refugees and immigrants. It is also placed close to the University. Therefore you’ll find plenty of bookshops, fine arts shops, informática shops, nice cafes, bistrots, cozy restaurants, ouzeries and good ambience in one word. The Hostel holds different educational and social activities. A wonderful experience.

The best place ever for backpackers! The receptionists I met- Ida and Aris where so cool. Not just good workers, but fun and intelligent people also. Very interesting to talk to. Serves very nice coctails (I tried blue coctail particulary) and vegan coffee. Breakfast was super duper simple, I didnt order it second day of my stay, but still... Good there is such an option :D Rooms where clean, good ventilation, with lockers. Social volunteers all around the hostel running many avtivities and spending time with the guests. Go to this place and check it out! :))
