  • Very lovely place to stay, located very near the metro station and a safe district, we had our private balcony and a super big double bed. The reception was very friendly and nice to talk with. Highly recommend couples to choose this place.

  • The first to days & nights the toilet in our room was not working. In the public toilets was a mouse.... So I had to find toilets out of the hostel....Then after complaining several times we could change the room and even got an upgrade to a 2-bed-room!

  • It's a hostel not hotel so we knew that conditions will be only sattisfied.But rooms were clean,bathrooms also.Staff is really helpful,nice and always smile.It's perfect place for young people who want to drink all night long :) If you'd like to go there you should know that is laud hostel.The estate is poorer one in Athens so you should be careful when staying there.I was there with friends - 12 people and stayed there 4nights.That was what we expected in this price!

  • Other comments like "scary area" is relative, the area is a little run down but we never felt threatened at all. This hostel was perfect for our needs, the location isn't bad you can get anywhere by using the metro and the buses. The staff were very helpful and dorms were clean and presentable.

  • The staff is really nice. The breakfast is very good and costs only 2.50 to 4.50 Euros (depending on what you take: continental, Greek yogurt, bacon & eggs,...). But the rooms are not so clean. The area is a bit creepy, but the railway station and the sightseeing stuff is within walking distance or 1 or 2 stops with the metro. What I did not like so much was that there was not the right atmosphere to talk to other backpackers.
