Liked: The location is close to everything. There are a lot of restaurants, bars and the Acropolis is only 15min walk.

Disliked: The4bed dorm in the Athenstyle (you could end up in Soph andChris or Athenstyle regardless of your booking) is so cramped. The space between the 2 bunk beds was just about 2 feet. It is also very noisy and you can hear people from the nextroom.

Liked: The Hostel is connected with the slightly more expensive "Athens style hostel" thus you are able to use their fantastic rooftop bar as well as having the same reception and breakfast area. Thus, if you like to save some money and do not mind sleeping next doors, the hostel is great.

Disliked: The showers: only little water comes out and the temperature cannot be adjusted.

Liked: This was a prime location, right off monastoraki square. perfect to get to from airport. perfect to see all the best sights.

Disliked: looked a bit shady. had to go through a weird gate and the ground floor hallway was delapidated with graffiti and cracked walls. elevator did not feel safe.

Liked: Air Con in the rooms was a definite advantage. Liked that there were separate mens and ladies toilets/showers. Communal area and rooftop were good for meeting people and it's very close to the main attractions.

Disliked: There is a bar next door which has some dodgy looking characters floating around at odd hours of the night.
