Reviewed 24 August 2010

If you are on a gap year travelling or backpacking then this is a perfect place, near just about everything you could want ( shops, bank, transport links). The person in charge was really helpful and friendly which helps is a strange city! this is youth hostek in every sense of the word though, so if you dont mind sharing a room thn i would highly recommend here.

Reviewed 26 April 2010

The hostel is only €14 a night, one of the cheaper ones in Athens. I actually stayed in this hostel first with friends and then returned as a solo traveller, as a lot of the cheaper hostels in Athens seem to be in fairly dodgy locations, especially for a solo female traveller. But this one is really close to a trolleybus service, which runs all night, and is in a nice residential location, with plenty of bars, restaurants, and shops just around the corner!
The room was okay, nothing special. There are balconys with each room, and a roof garden and a kitchen. Clean sheets and blankets are included. There is also a washing machine and dryer, although it is fairly expensive. There is free wifi, and sofas on the landing on each floor to chill out on, plus an inside area where you can sit in the evenings which is pretty cool.
All the staff were very helpful, and you can leave your luggage there if you need to, plus there is a security camera on the front door.
There is one big downfall with this hostel though; the showers. you have to pay 50centimes for 7 minutes of hot water. and the showers themselves are clean, but old, in need of a renovation, and there is no space to get changed.
despite the showers, i recommend this hostel, purely for its location, value for money and good staff.

This hostel worked well for what we needed. We stayed in an all female room with 6 beds. They pack them in tight. You have to pay .50 for hot water so I took cold showers because I'm THAT cheap. They have a place to dry clothes on the roof that is covered (it was raining while we were there), but you need the key to get up there and I always felt that I was being such a nuisance asking for the key to hang my clothes or bring them down.

There is free wireless if you have your own computer but EVERYONE was having a hard time connecting so don't get your hopes up. It is about a 25 min walk to Syntagma square, there is a mall nearby with an internet place that put all of our pics on a cd for 1 euro and a supermarket a few blocks up the street.

The good thing about this hostel is that they are strict on rules, there is no curfew but there is lights out and quiet time. It was crowded with people so we made a lot of new friends. My only issue with the place is that I wasn't treated well by the staff. Thats fine by me though, for 10 euro a night I can deal with them being a little grouchy.

There's not much to say... it served its purpose well. It was relatively close to things, the staff was very nice, and there was a TV room and a kitchen. But there was no internet area (however there was free Wi-Fi) and the bathrooms had no hand soap. Also, you had to pay for hot water, which I have never had to do before. It was decent enough, and all the people staying there were very friendly.
