Reviewed 27 October 2008

After spending 20 hrs on the planes, on transit and in the airports, all we ever wanted then was our pre-booked private room at the hostel. Unfortunately, our private 4+1 bedded ensuite room was taken by someone else despite the hostel's email confirmation we had. We were really upset about this. The staff apologized and offered us a discount of 2 euros per person for our stay for that nite (oh... big deal!!) and assured us a private room for the following 2 nites.

We were put in a 14-bedded mixed dorm on the 1st floor (same level as the bistro. The room wasn't too bad. What we could not really stand was having to stay in the same room with some stinky travellers. It was a little stuffy.

Thank God, we survived!

We had our private room the next day as promised by the management. Ours on the 4th floor facing the main street. 2 bunk beds, a small rollaway, a clean bathroom with standing shower and balcony. Condition & cleanliness - new & good. Rooms are serviced daily.

The hostel has common toilets every floor - clean and new. Most standing showers are installed with shower curtains. These curtains can be a nuisance - it blows back and sticks to your body while you shower. It can be quite annoying. The hostel should consider installing fibreglass shower screens instead to keep the bathrooms dry.

Location - bout 5 mins walk to Omonia metro station. Restaurants - just about everywhere. Supermarkets (Carrefour -Athinas St) & another one along Menandrou St - about 5 mins as well.

Monastiraki station is about 30 mins on foot from the hostel (slow to moderate speed). It's a good stroll along the way - where you can get some fresh fruits from the fruit and vege market along Athinas St.

Overall I would highly recomment this hostel for its location and rooms. It would have been perfect if our reservation was not screwed up!!

My partner & I stayed at Athens Easy Hostel for 5 nights in June 2008. We paid $72 AUD for a Double Room with Private Bathroom. This included Breakfast & free Internet Access. Our room consisted of a double bed, wardbrobe, couch chair, small bench, TV & air con. The room was small-medium sized, very clean, quiet & secure. The breakfast is served downstairs & consisted of toast, 2 boiled eggs, butter & jam, juice & coffee. Internet access is free to use but is always busy. There are stairs & elevator access. Staff were friendly, very helpful & had good English. The location is good as it is close to public transport & one of the main square's in Athens. There is also plenty of food options close to the hostel. This is a clean & comfortable hostel at an affordable price. If you do stay here, we recommend putting your name down for a walking tour with Walter. He will take you on a tour through Athens to all the ancient ruins for a very cheap price.

Stayed 4 nights at the Athens Easy Hostel. This was a great budget hotel. We had a room that was nicely renovated with a new ensuite bathroom.

Location: Good. Just a few steps from the Omonia Square metro station. Location seemed a bit sketchy at night but we had no problems and the streets were always bustling. About a 15 minute walk from the Acropolis and many shops, restaurants, and grocery stores nearby.

Lobby: 24-hour reception. Fluent English was spoken at the reception desk. There is a 5% surcharge if paying by credit card. There was construction going on which made the hotel very dusty, but we had no problems with noise in our room. The lobby looks like it will be quite nice when completed. There were elevators, but they were slow and small.

Room: Our room had a TV, semi-private balcony, ensuite bathroom, and air-conditioning. Not all rooms include TVs. The room was very clean and fresh white towels were provided. We were surprised that in this budget hotel the rooms were cleaned and towels were changed during our stay.

Bathroom: The bathroom was newly redone; the only drawback was the lack of shower curtain which seems to be the norm in Greece. Soap and towels were provided, but there were no shampoo or other toiletries.

Breakfast: Breakfast was included, consisting of hard boiled eggs, white bread, tea/coffee, and juice. There was only one toaster, and there was often a long queue to use it.

Overall: Excellent value for price, good location. Would stay here again.
