Your credit card will be charged in cases of “no show” or changes made not according to cancellation policy above. The amount charged will be the total of the first night of your reservation. To claim the percentage and the booking fee paid to an online booking company, you must get in contact with them.


General Rules

Payment is upon arrival - CASH ONLY, credit cards are NOT ACCEPTED. Check-out is no later than 10 am. Late check outs will be charged in any case with the following day. Check-in starts at 2 pm since rooms need to be cleaned. Please contact us if your arrival time change from the one in the booking. We reserve the right to give away your bed if you come later than 5 hours after expected arrival time.

We reserve the right to abandon or cancel reservations if the given information is incorrect or false and to refuse accommodation to anyone or end their stay before the reservation finishes if standards of behaviour are not met, in cases such as this no money will be refunded to the guests.

We make every effort to accommodate you in the dormitory size of your choice. However, because of the nature of our business, we may have to place you in a different sized dormitory. As a result the balance to be paid upon arrival can be slightly different to what is stated on your confirmation.

Guests with children under the age of 10 are requested to book private accommodations. People cannot share one dorm bed. Bed linens and blankets are included in the price. Towels are provided for free only if booked private accommodation, can be rent for 2 euro - if booked dorms. No soaps are provided.

Generally everyone is welcome at AthenStyle, as long as they understand Hostels.

We don’t send fax or letters for Visa document applications to consulates.



A Booking for over 10 persons is considered a group booking and can not be booked over the web. To see if you can book a group you can send an email to us. For a group booking we reserve the right to ask for a deposit of 500 euros, which will be refunded on check-out, and only if the management considers that no damage has been done to our hostel. To have a processed reservation you will need to pay 50% of the total payment. Before this stage the reservation will not be confirmed and no beds will be blocked. No money will be refunded if you decide to cancel the reservation. 3 weeks before the arrival date you will have to make the full payment of the remaining amount. Between these two points you can make changes to your booking. When you have paid the remaining amount no changes, total cancellation or partial cancellation will be accepted.

All sightseeing (e.g. Acropolis, Ancient Agora, Roman Agora, Kerameikos) at walking distance!
