  • The location is not that bad. I didn't see prostitutes of dodgy-looking people as other reviewers warned. The toilette is a bit gross, the bed looks even worse. Staff is okay, willing to look after my laptop for me so no complaint there.

  • The location was alright, a bit of a walk into the old town. The beds aren't very comfortable and the showers are disgraceful. Moldy and lacking hot water frequently. The kitchen was always a disaster and there was always this older Greek lady lurking around and using the facilities, even if you were in the middle of doing something. There was one lady at reception who was totally lovely and it was cheap. Those are the only good things about the place.

  • I stayed couple days there. We booked room with 6 beds but we somehow stayed in a 4 bed room which was great. First day hot water was not working, later it is fixed. Lady at the reception was incredibly slow made us wait 15-20 mins only for registration. There was nobody else waiting. Location is good, walking distance to nearly all Athens but Omonia area did not seem very secure to me. Facilities were ok and the hostel is clean. I think it worth for the money we pay for.

  • The hostel was clean but the area around it was kinda scary... but the hostel is near the metro so it's not so bad. The common areas were small and really hot in the summer (the backyard was not outdoors, worked like a glass house...). The lift was tiny and to go up 6 floors by foot is terrible. Overall it was clean and the price is good and the kitchen is big though not much equiped. Cold showers though.
