Liked: The dorm rooms were comfortable, although a little airless, and the common areas were plentiful enough that we could find some space to ourselves, even when it was busy.

Disliked: The bathrooms were a bit small and needed some maintenance.

Liked: Nice rooms with balcony, airconditioning, nice common room with kitchen. There was no curfew, a supermarket on the other side of the street and it was not far from the metro station. Also the beds were comfy and there weren't to many people in one room. (In my case 40. Hostel is not located in a bad neighbourhood

Disliked: The bathrooms were not superclean and the wifi wasn't always available because so many people were using it. As I needed it to check in for my flight, this needs to be fixed.But these are not major issues. A good hostel for this price.

Liked: The kitchen was not very busy.

Disliked: The hostel is placed in a decadent, insecure and very dirty neighbourhood. The service is not kind and they try to cheat you (for example they ask you to pay for clean towels). The hostel facilities are old and dirty. Connecting to wifi is almost imposible. You can find something much better for the same price.

Liked: Beds were relatively comfy

Disliked: Terrible location, probably in one of the worst areas of Athens. Wifi barely worked. Staff were pretty unhelpful and rude when asked questions about the hostel/area-very short and unhelpful answers, general vibe of the hostel was one of the worst I've experienced.

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.
