Liked: Helpful staff, place was fine for the price. Dorms were fine, good beds but crap pillows.

Disliked: Kitchen consistently filthy, a decent walk into town, can be noisey, not much air flow through the dorms so pretty warm to sleep in. Not located in the prettiest neighbourhood but always felt safe on the streets.

Liked: It was the cheapest I found that had decent reviews. Showers were good with good water pressure, access to a kitchen, close to Metro. The guy at the front desk answered all my questions politely.

Disliked: There is only one room key for each room so essentially it's never locked and you are sharing the key with strangers. My locker didn't have anything I could attach a lock to so my things were not secure. There were some older men chilling in the lobby when I arrived at 9pm for check in, which I thought was strange for a youth hostel and made me feel uneasy.

Liked: Close to metro. Friendly reception staff.

Disliked: That the other guests were partying until the wee hours of the morning and we had an early start. I know that it did not say quiet but the noise came up from the kitchen area and girls and guys giggled all through the night. Lucky we were only there one night

Liked: Wifi in the room. Clean linen. Air con. A functioning lift (as i was on the 6th floor this was quite useful)

Disliked: Beds were covered in graffiti. Cold showers. Dirty bathroom. The surrounding location of this hostel is very sketchy. Reception staff were not friendly or helpful. Only one key for the room when there were four people in the room who didn't know each other...There were no secure lockers in the rooms. There were two power points in the room for four people. Basically, i only stayed here because i had no other option.

Liked: Honestly stay in plaka if possible the area this hostel is yet to be desired and there is nothing to do and few dining options. But as a cheaper option it's not bad and the good thing is the metro is near by

Disliked: Location, no towels, and there was garbage under bed/dresser

Liked: Just the location and that's it.

Disliked: There's only hot water from 7-11 n 3-12. The place is very dirty makes you feel sick . The beds are 20yrs old and disgusting. The kitchen was disgusting as well and has no utensils eg chopping board, knife, peeler, cups, anything really. Bad smell throughout the hostel and hot rooms has air con but they don't work so you have to sleep with the door open and get killed by mozzies
