“The location was just a 10 minute walk from the train station which takes you right to the main sites. And it was walking distance to the Archaeological Museum as well as restaurants, grocery stores and good bakeries! The free internet was a definite plus as was the lift. The staff was really helpful and friendly. The bus to Corfu was also very convenient. Overall, a pretty good place to stay in Athens.”
Hostel Aphrodite is a good place to stay. Free internet, free shot of ouzo, nice people.”

There were two females working at reception. Both great. The older of the two (I think her name was Jen, I don't remember) was extremely helpful and went out of her way to make me feel safe and accommodated. Breakfast was just bread, juice&coffee, but other items were available for purchase. Loved the hostel, but not a great area to stay in. Still, there is a metro station nearby for easy transportation.

The staff were very friendly, fun and very helpful while we stayed there. The free breakfast was good and it was easy to get to metro's.

This hostel was way better than what we paid for it. Air conditioning, no bed bugs, and a bar with a good happy hour make this place a winner. The walking tour was good as well. There is no better hostel for this price.

Excellent hostel, would recomend and certainly stay again....
Jaleesa From USAOn April 15, 2009
The hostel was surprisingly clean. The staff members were really nice, fun, inviting, and helpful, especially hannah and johno. The offer a welcome drink when you get there! It also helps to have 24hr check-in. The people were young college age students like me, which always makes for a good environment.
Make sure yo get the dinner that's offered and quite a bit, for only 5 euro!
Over a well lush experience.

It is a very good hostel. I liked very much. The only problem is that it is not so close the main attractions. But it is not bad.
Mariano From ArgentinaOn May 16, 2007
Place is o.k. Clean, big, and quiet. No problems with showers or wc. Very easy to find, and near to the metro.
Love greece and greek food. Also cheap greek hotels and hostels.
Met good people over there.

It's quite close to Archaeology National Museum, 6 minutes walking to Victoria Square (metro station) and 10 minutes walking to Larisis Tren Station. Non turistic, quiet area. Good pub downstairs. Good Staff at reception. Very good guide for the "Athens Walking Tour" (but too fast). What I didn't like: there aren't any plugs inside rooms!!!
Christina From AustraliaOn December 15, 2005
