Liked: It's average as far as hostels go. I think the 87% rating it has is about right (though I haven't stayed at other Athens hostels to evaluate how it compares).

Disliked: Eh.

Liked: The location is great, can't think of a better location for Athens

Disliked: Minor thing.... there is a laundry service, it was difficult to find coins, maybe the hostel should help on that.

Liked: Cleaning was moderate. Wifi was working. Room with balkony.

Disliked: - matresses were too small for the bed- the handle of the door was falling off- the rooftop bar was closed, therefore there was a party in the hallway and infront of the entrance all night long. It was loud and annyoing.

Liked: Amazing view of the acropolis plus friendly and helpful staff.

Disliked: It looks a bit down at heel and could do with some re-decoration. Breakfast was fine but very little room to eat it in!

Liked: Friendly and helpful staff really make difference to your holiday!

Disliked: When some people were staying overnight, but only for a few hours, and would disrupt Everyone in the bunk, both on the way in, and the way out. For the sake of a few hours sleep, wouldnt it be easier to put them somewhere unoccupied? ?

Liked: Loved the rooftop bar, it had an amazing view of the Acropolis and was easy t meet people. The staff were very helpful and helped me with directions for onwards travel. Airconditioning in the room was lovely! The location was good, easy to walk to/from everything.

Disliked: I was not very impressed with the free breakfast as it was only bread rolls, eggs and tea/coffee. Would have been nice to at least have juice. The showers were pretty bad, one per floor, very small and the shower curtain stuck to me the whole time and there was no surface to put my clothes, etc on. They were pretty dirty my whole stay. It would have been nice to have reading lights on the beds.
