  • Air conditioning was a joke! Rooms were tiny. Breakfast was terrible. Be prepared to drag your bags up flights of stairs, the bigger your bag, the higher the floor your room will be on! Think that's their motto. Be prepared to sweat profusely in this hostel, even if you normally don't sweat. It's a gift.

  • The staff was very friendly and helpful and the room was clean. However, the bed was sooo uncomfortable. The springs were digging into our backs, even after we laid additional blankets on the mattress. Hopefully the hostel purchases new mattresses soon... or at least mattress pads since they are so convenient and inexpensive.

  • First time in Athens, and Fivos made everything that much better. The location is great as it's less than 2 minutes away from the Plaka (Monastiraki Square) area bustling with shops, restaurants, and tourist sites. I stayed for just over a week and absolutely loved it!

  • Fivos hotel is near the Omonia subway station, which, in our opinion, is not the safest part of Athens. Otherwise, the staff were really friendly and helpful, and the rooms were clean and enjoyable. Breakfast was decent as well.

  • This hotel might be the best hotel you can find in the area. Cheap, very friendly, breakfast included and just 2 minutes walking distance to Monastiraki Sqaure.

  • The staff did its job, but no more. It is definitely not the friendliest hostel staff I've ever seen. The rooms were ok, but the bathrooms seem dirty cause of mold due to the humidity. Beds are hard and you can often feel the springs. Ok breakfast.
