Liked: The dorm rooms in Athens Studios are clean and very spacious. Mine had a little kitchenette, free instant coffee and tea and a small balcony, But the best part of the room is the well functioning airconditioning (it was 39C in Athens when I visited). The beds are comfy.

Disliked: The staff are professional and polite, but no more than that. A little bit of a more personal and friendly approach would have been nice. If your staying in Athens Studios you have your breakfast in the sports bar / fish and chips shop next door. I found the breakfast hours (between 07:30 and 09:30) a bit on the short side.

Liked: The patient stuffs Paul and KATIA ,Paul showed us useful information and advise especially one lady called KATIA, due to in a hurry , I forget my documents in the reception ,she helped me to take care of it and helped me took the picture! I really thanked KATIA a lot ! And inaddtionally ,the location ,the atmosphere ,they put a lot of furniture inside which brings the convenient for the customers! From each tiny detail, I felt warm in my mind ,like I were staying at home. Nice time ,I will meet them again!

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.
