  1. Pearl From USA On November 30, -0001

    The wonderful and helpful staff make this place GREAT. Bridgette was so helpful about everything. The rooms are basic, with comfy beds, clean sheets, and balconies on the street-side rooms, which is fun because there's plenty of activity on the street below. Really close to a metro stop, which is handy.

  2. Sam From USA On November 30, -0001

    nice, clean hostel, but very hard to meet people, because it is so large. decent location, area is kind of sketchy at night.

  3. XON From Spain On November 30, -0001

    Everything was O.K. except the problems in the neighborhood. Thank you!

  4. Thiago From Brazil On November 30, -0001

    clean, cheap and with breakfast and internet.. good enough for the price

  5. Benjamin From Chile On November 30, -0001

    We are from Chile (3 people) and come for 1 night. Everything was really good! no complaints. The sector of athens may be quiet dangerous at night, but is really close the subway so is good though.

  6. Anna From Poland On November 30, -0001

    Really great place to stay. The hostel is really fully air-conditioned and has wireless internet access for free on each floor. Also, there are few PC's near the reception to surf. The staff is wonderful, very helpful.

  7. anna From Poland On November 30, -0001

    we definitely loved the place and staff! the price is inversely proportional to all the care we were given.

  8. Juan From Mexico On November 30, -0001

    It is really good, the rooms are very clean, the staff is very friendly and speaks 3 languages, they have air conditioning, the only problem is the position, you have to arrive before 12 because the metro lines close and it is 3 km from downtown, so if you want to go walking, although I would not recommend it because omonia its a little bit dangerous.

  9. Hannele From Finland On November 30, -0001

    1.New floors to the rooms. 2. The awful wardrobes (nobody uses them) away and bigger toilets instead! With these renewals you can even rise the price a little.

  10. amro From Egypt On November 30, -0001

    i have been just a night and i was recovered due to allergy for fucking dirty beds..i wouldn't recommand it to anyone..

  11. Arjan From Netherlands On November 30, -0001

    minimal rooms, but oke for visiting athens, nice location, free internet.

  12. Marco From Italy On November 30, -0001

    Clean, good location, friendly staff. Excellent value for money.

  13. Ana Carolina From Brazil On November 30, -0001

    We were 4 wemen and we hated it!!! There were some people figthing in the middle of the street in the night breaking windows and cars! Very dangerous and we run out in the morning.

  14. Christian From Argentina On November 30, -0001

    The staff was very kind and they helped me by telling me how to reach some places.Tha place was very clean,and located near a station from which takes between 5-10 minutes to Syntagma square or the Acropolis.Summary:very nice.

  15. Caroline From France On November 30, -0001

    I stayed only one night in this hostel, so I have not so many things to say! I was absolutely satisfied by this cheap hostel, very clean and not so noisy. It was almost 30°C in the bedroom, but with the window opened it was ok. It's near the Peloponnese bus station (10 men by taxi).The breakfast could be cheaper...(3.5 euros). But it is a good hostel.

  16. Lida From China On November 30, -0001

    Great place. The only problem bothers me is that it could get really hot at night.

  17. Emily From USA On November 30, -0001

    The website says free internet, whereas they have absolutely no internet. The building is pretty old, they only have one key for each multibed room, and you have to go up stairs to get to them. (No elevator.)

  18. fang From China On November 30, -0001

    Price is good if just for living. 10 min from railway station. Not too man fun thing.

  19. Thao Nguyen From Vietnam On November 30, -0001

    The only complaint i have is that the shower area is not very well-designed and it makes the whole bathroom wet everytime someone takes a shower. Otherwise, awesome place to stay in.

  20. Lashkar From Bangladesh On November 30, -0001

    I stayed two nights; altogether satisfactory. The staff in particular are extremely helpful.
