A very average hostel, but you get what your pay for. Nothing above and beyond but nothing horribly below standards.
Pros
- AC!
- Friendly staff
- Decent Location
Cons
- Little small (in everyway)
- Fix Computers
- Update a little bit

The hostel was quite close to the metro station but the neighbourhood it's located was a bit uncomfortable for me - without street light and it looked really scary at night to walk alone. The double room I stayed in was alright, it's just a bit old and I am sure you can find something better with the price they're offering.

The man at the front desk was completely useless. He didn't give us a map or any information on what to see or where to go. The next morning i asked a women behind the desk who wAs super helpful. The beds were nice we had a great sleep. There were hardly any, if at all, english speaking guests so we meet no 1 while there. The wi fi is unreliable but overall a good deal for the price if you don't want to party for a couple nights. Kind of in a sketchy area from what i saw of it at night.

On a budget but had read the reviews that seemed alright. Worst decision ever made to stay here. The first night I came with my family, the neighborhood was horrible- smelled of garbage and poo. When we checked in, unpacked, we found the water heater was not 24h as offered and when there was water heater, it was warm. The faucet needs fixing too. The wifi connection was very poor. You cant connect to it unless it was at midnight. The beds seemed clean but we found out the next morning it had bed bugs! I wanted to get out already but we had paid the bill :( the beds were also extremely uncomfortable! The itching was unbearable! The receptionists are not really helpful! Worst place! My skin is still itching! I cannot understand how there are good reviews here. I understand that this hostel will not cost me an arm or leg but what i cannot understand is good reviews! Poorly done! Will not recommend!

This place was decent. We stayed here on two occasions.
Each room has:
- bathroom and shower (number of beds depends on what you pay for)
- AC unit
- Lockers (bring your own locks)
- Linens and pillow
- most have terraces

They also have a safe deposit box at the front desk. There are multiple common areas, one indoors by the desk with a tv and tables and a cafe that is open for breakfast. There is a snack machine, coke machine, and cooler with beers, etc. The other common area is outdoors, also a tv out there. There is also a kitchen for public use and they have laundry services. Nearby there is an AWESOME grocery store with cheappp prices for all things.

The staff is really nice and helpful. They book ferries to and from the major islands etc for the same price as all the other places, so its easier probably to book with them. They also help you plan trips, and they offer tours of athens and of some smaller nearby islands.

Only negative is that it is a subway ride from monastiraki and other central areas. But literally 5-10 minutes away. Also, the area seemed to be a bit creepy. It didn't seem safe to walk around alone near the evening. (The hostel has BRIGHT lights outside....so that's safe)
