Really friendly staff and close to lots of sites! Very walkable location and just a two minute walk from the train station that goes to the port and the airport. Staff was really nice and helpful with recommendations. Tons of affordable dining options nearby. Clean sheets and blankets, too. Thanks for a good stay!

Great location, Great company.
We had a ensuite private room which was clean and the free walking tours by Walter Preston are a must!
Would definitely choose to stay here again.
Rooftop bar has a great view of the city and acropolis. Hotel staff were very helpful.

Just let me explain why AthenStyle has the incredible feature to be at the same time the worst and the best accomodation in Athens. We booked a double room with TV, private bathroom etc. When we checked in, the receptionnist gave us the key to the "new room" in the adjacent building. Problem was: we could not open the room with our key. We came back to the receptionnist that whispered some complaints about overbooking and after 5 or 10 mins spent forcing the lock, the so-called "new room" finally opened. We discovered something that looked like a dormitory (you even had a spare bunk bed! In a double room!), with wires hanging here and there, a window showing an abandonned building that I could not tell if it was closed or opened... Now you don't really get the "right" picture if you omit the bar-nightclub just down the street that was terribly loud (cf window description).
Back then it was 3 AM, we were exausted from the plane and we felt nothing else was available so we stayed there and barely slept.

In the morning, we took care of the breakfast (free because honestly you can't charge this kind) to ask for a new room. Gladly we were heard and in the evening we got a nice room in the main building finally fitting the description of what we payed for: double bed, TV, nice bathroom etc... We even had a great terrasse with view on the Acropolis.

In the end we still spent about 60€ for one of the worst possible night so I would advise you to be careful if you book a double room.

Room Tip: Ask a room in the main building and please run away if someone gives you a key to a room with no nam...

This hostel had a great location just off Monastiraki Square and the main vein of the city. From the very cool rooftop bar and balcony, you could see a lot of the city and the Parthenon. Reception was great. At the front desk, Alexandra was very sweet and always available to help. The free breakfast was great with traditional as well as more familiar options, and the kitchen was homey and clean. Our four person dorm was nice and the lockers were much appreciated, the only real area of work would have been the bathroom. Not impressively clean and with only a curtain, showers left the entire floor wet and prone to flooding. The lobby was very cool and chill with a porch swing and couches, unfortunately this was the only area that received wireless internet. Overall good experience at a fantastic price. And the walking tour they recommend with "British George" is absolutely amazing, do it!!!

This is our first trip to Athens, Greece. And the beginning of our month long journey around Greece, mostly the islands.From mid May to mid June, 2014..Taking the metro to central Athens is easy, 14E (euro) for 2. We got off at Monistraki square.Recommend printing a map to get to Athenstyle, Then a 5-10 minute walk to Athenstyle hostel. Our booking from expedia led us to believe we were staying at a hotel, not a hostel. But we weren't to put off from the difference. For us the price charged from Expedia (almost $100/night) the value is not there.. The hostel has fantastic views from the rooftop bar n lounge, The staff are very friendly and helpful. It is in a great location but so are a lot of others. Storage lockers are 2 E or 3.50E per day depending on size. Continental breaky was ok, just fill up on bread or cereal if you are hungry..
i don't want to dwell on negatives but just so others know certain things.. our clean room, Milos, faced back of building which was good n bad. Unfortunately mostly bad. Echoing noise from neighbouring bar bands and loud voices kept us awake til 3-4 am.. Then a rooster, yes a rooster, cockadoodle-dooed at 430-5am . It is next door by the parking lot.. so for 2 nights we didn't sleep much. As well the doors close very loud too and echo..The room is okay, small with a double bed and bunk bed. Shower only , bring your own shampoo, etc . We could not find a main light switch so we removed the light bulbs.. A tip.. New to us was a card to activate room electricity. It must be inserted to activate lights, plug-ins etc but they cut out once card is removed,,
Overall i think Athenstyle HOSTEL is a good hostel . Great staff, clean rooms, rooftop bar with happy hour 8-9pm and good dinner meals, 10E, and convenient central location is very good IF you can get it at a decent price. Oh and DO try the FREE walking tour, by Michael.. We recommend that too.. As well just wandering some of the streets nearby for ruins, souvenir shopping and resturants. A very nice bakery is up 1/2 block around the corner away from Ermou St. Turn right from the hostel and walk 100 metres or so.
Follow our reviews as we travel Greece for a month. Pictures will be added when we can.

Room Tip: get a suite room if possible. some rooms are located next door, upstairs.. Don't plan on much sl...

I stayed in the hostel about a year ago and must say: I had a fabulous time! Located directly in the city center, the hostel is super easy to find. The staff was very friendly and helpful from beginning to end. The rooms were quite spacious and clean. One of the highlights: check out their roof top bar! Brilliant view and a nice atmosphere.
The next time I'll go to visit Athens, I will definetly stay there again!
