Customer review

With my spouse / partner

Backpacking / gap year

29 August 2013

Liked: NOTHING - THIS IS NO LONGER A HOSTEL, IT IS A BROTHEL

Disliked: Do not stay at this hostel ! This is now a legitimate brothel. We arrived to a very puzzled receptionist who had to lead us to another property owned by the same man who owns this supposed hostel. While we were sorting this out in the front lobby, prostitutes were coming in and slipping 5 euros over the counter and leading men into the lift and up to the rooms. The lady kept asking where did you make booking ? Lucky my partner and I are well travelled and seen the humourous side but this could be a very scary ordeal if you were travelling alone. This property should no longer be on the website. * I have stayed at this property before 2 years ago when I did a tour with a Fanatics, so I can honestly say this property has done a complete backflip from what it was.

Liked: The Hostel in general was pretty clean. The first day I was there the shower curtain was a quite moldy but when I asked for it to be changed it was done that day by the time I get back. The staff were very friendly and helpful. There are 4 public computers to use as well as wifi access. Very easy access to a main train junction (Omonia)

Disliked: There was only one key for each room which had to be returned to reception by the last person from that room whenever they went out. The shower cubicle was very small as the curtain was on concertina arms that were drawn around you and didn't stay shut very well. the shower basin leaked a bit onto the bathroom floor. The area is quite rough with lots of prostitutes & drug pushers but for the most part I didn't feel unsafe I just didn't go out very much by myself at night. IT sometimes got quite noisy from outside.

Liked: Good atmosphere with a bar pumping good music into the night, easy to meet people, clean, free breakfast which is decent, friendly staff, cheap.

Disliked: No top sheets on the beds and the blankets seemingly aren't washed between uses. It's in a pretty dodgy area - Omonia is described in the Lonely Planet guide as the 'home of drugdealers, pickpockets and prostitutes'. As a guy it's probably fine - I never felt threatened - but I know the girl I was with felt that it would have been very scary by herself. Overall I'd still recommend the place, it was fun.

Liked: Clean beds, helpful front desk staff.

Disliked: Really horrible area, felt very uncomfortable coming in late at night. People shooting up heroin right in the street- although they weren't aggressive, it was pretty awful to see. Only one key per room, meaning you have to negotiate with other people, or just leave the room open all the time.

Liked: Private double room was nicely furnished with TV and modern furniture. Linens, blankets and towels provided. The underground was close. 25-30 minute walk to good areas of Plaka.

Disliked: The hostel has free wifi (which didn't work in our rooms) and computers (which had a lot of viruses - don't plug anything into them!) Breakfast was toast, instant coffee, tea and orange juice. Location was pretty bad. I travelled with a group of three, we did not feel "unsafe" at the location but pay the extra five Euro and stay in Plaka - Omonia has nothing going on but "ladies of the night" and there aren't any good restaurants or cafes nearby. We were incredibly bored in Omonia and at the hostel. No good common rooms to meet people in. We stayed at Students and Travellers Inn in Plaka for just a little more money and it was compeltely worth it - much more fun, and the location was way better.

Liked: they offer good service, laundry and very good wifi...the place is very clean and close of the omonia subways station and the archaeological museum...a good money vs value rathing that part of it is ok (my consern is not about the hostel but about the area where is located)

Disliked: the area where the hostel is located is very dangerous...really, really unsafe...don't stay there if your a lady by yourself and be carefull even if you are a guy (drug, prostitute and crime everywhere around the hostel) the location it's the only thing that make me not recommended this hostel, the hostel is good, but not in this area sorry !!!

Liked: Location was convenient, very close to the metro.Great value for money.Rooms were cleaned every day including fresh linen.Front desk was manned 24 hours a day and staff were helpful.Computers with internet provided.

Disliked: Although the location is very convenient it's not in a nice area at all. But you're only 2 minutes from the metro so it was a compromise worth making for me. Small but annoying point - although the rooms were cleaned every day the shower curtain was really mouldy - nasty!

Liked: This hostel feels nice and new. Beds are good, staff are good. The location isn't bad, like many people complain about. We arrived after midnight and walked from the metro station, and had no problems and didn't feel threatened. Sure, shady looking characters were around, but no problem. Breakfast was ok (toast, tea & coffee, juice). We were only here one night, but it looks like a fun place.

Disliked: A few odd smells around, but nothing unmanageable :-)

Liked: It was not at all like any other hostel, in the best way possible. It was so clean and smart, but had all the benefits which a hostel has as well, like meeting amazing people very easily. Liga at the bar was so lovely and friendly, honestly made our stay in Athens ten times better. I hope everyone who stays at Easy Access appreciates her!

Disliked: The location was not the best, but the centre was only a short walk or a couple of metro stops away.

Liked: Free internet, wi-fi, and breakfast is alwasy a winner! Also was very pleased with our air-conditioned room!

Disliked: It wouldn't hurt for the bar staff to work on their interpersonal skills. It's never very inviting when people can't force a smile or there is a sign on the counter that reads 'DO NOT ask me anything about the computer. I DON"T KNOW!'
