AthenStyle Hostel

Reviewed 6 September 2013

AthenStyle is a ok for 1 - 2 nights and if you want to be in the center of the action. But any longer than that, you'll find that the small tiny room and bathroom just gets to you. It's air conditioned and the rooftop is a pretty cool area to chill out. The staff are just ok but speak good English. I did not meet any travelers here because they usually just stay the night and leave at 4am in the morning for their respective tours! I didn't have a decent night sleep for the entire 3 nights that I was there. But hey - I was on a budget and it did the job. Will not return to the hostel.

AthenStyle is a decent hostel if you're looking for a place to stay in a good location near Monasteraki Square. However, the bathrooms for the shared rooms weren't clean at all, and the value for money wasn't great, considering the very basic quality of the rooms. But the staff were really friendly and spoke great English. The rooftop has an absolutely beautiful view of Athens -- definitely worth going up there to watch the sun set over the Acropolis. The reception area is nice, but the wifi barely works.

The localization of the hostel is excellent-a walking distance from the historical sites, art fair and restaurants of the Casaba. The veranda and the roof (where breakfast is served) overlook the Acropolis.
The room was clean and large. A luggage room could have solved problems of logistics, when you go out of town for more than a day.
We had problems with the air conditioner, twice, but they were fixed within an hour or two. The crew was attentive and helpful.

We enjoyed our stay AthensStyle however if you’re out to meet wondering travelers and like-minded adventurers you won’t find any here. It’s filled with busabout and other tour groups. I don’t mind the odd tour group but when most of the hostel is doing the same tour and the roof top bar is packed with group dinners it kind of feels less like a hostel and more like …well Australia (due the large number of Australians). However, if you don’t mind that it’s a great hostel. We had a four bedroom dorm with a bathroom which was really great. The rooms were also air-conditioned and clean. The staff were not very helpful but the location is great! Also the roof top bar is a must at sunset.

Room Tip: I would recommend a four bed dorm - cheap and more private

I was for one night in Athenstyle Hostel and enjoyed my stay. Only five walking minutes away from Monasteraki Station its a really convinient location in the heart of Plaka. The dorm was clean and the beds were ok. The prices are ok, not cheap but still ok. The entrance is neatly decorated but most of the time occupied by tourist surfing in the internet. The rooftop bar is indeed very nice.
All in all it is a good hostel for short time stays.

Room Tip: Take one of the top rooms wich are in the neighboring house, Santorini for example. You will have a...

This is the recommended accommodation either end of the BusAbout Greek Island Hopping Tour. It is reasonably priced and meets the basic requirements. The six bed dorm we stayed in on "the other side" was spacious and the air con worked well. The bathroom was very basic but there was a patio. On our return we stayed in the main building in a six bed dorm which was less spacious but the bathroom was bigger. The staff were nice enough. The facilities were good, we enjoyed the dinner. Wifi is average, often dropping in and out. Overall, central, convenient, clean and everything you need for a cheap place to stay.

The hostel is very nice, well kept and clean. Very strategic location, in the heart of the old town. Easily reachable with all means of transportation. But the real added value are the wonderful people who run the hostel, a welcoming, nice italo-greek family, and the rooftop terrace where you can have a magnificent view of the acropolis, meet young globetrotters from everywhere, have nice drinks, and most of all, taste mamma Viki's specialties (tip: try the meatballs and the moussaka!).
