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.
