Liked: You cannot beat the location and where else do you get free cooking lessons, homemade olives and capers and the most sweet personal welcome by a hostel mother??? Irini is a gem not to miss - thank you for a wonderful time and we will be back!!!

Disliked: The building setup with the kitchen as a troughfare isnt ideal and the fridge isnt the most efficient. All perfectly usable though.

Liked: Perfect place to stay if you plan to do some sightseeing, ideal location, fast internet, nice staff and the hostel itself much better than I expected (from the photos and reviews). Bathrooms are renovated and I didn't miss the kitchen at all, because the Greek tavernas around are just amazing!

Liked: Not one thing

Disliked: No ladders for top bunks, only one 5 outlet short extension cord to use for charging & using computers, & couldn't use from the beds. Dim overhead light so impossible to read a book. Only working shower had a folding door that did not lock, usually only cold water, & no hooks to hang clothes in shower area. Only one decent toilet & when they started renovations on that, I walked to the bus station to use facilities there.. No lock for dorm rooms, & hallway outside was an absolute mess while they were renovating. In 17 months of travel, this is the worst hostel I've stayed in & I don't think their renovations will improve it all that much.

Liked: This hostel was not as bad as previous reviews made it seem. The owner is clearly reading reviews and responding to them to improve the hostel. Half the rooms have lockers (which you can request) and all have power strips for charging electronics. Sheets were clean and changed after the guest left. Bathrooms are spartan but functional. Electric kettle and spotless fridge are in the common room; I asked for dishes from the owner and she loaned me some. The owner is quiet but friendly, and is happy to answer questions.

Disliked: Had a hard time finding it. Directions from the bus stop should mention that when you emerge from Dedalou St onto Lions Square, the street you pop out on *is* 25th Avgoustou St (there are no signs), so just turn right. The street the hostel is on is *not* the second left after that, more like the fourth (some are alleys, some are streets, so counting is an estimate).

Liked: This is a basic hostel, for sure, but I found it comfortable, clean and very central. Friendly and helpful staff. The roof beds were great, cool and comfortable in the Septamber warmth. An excellent deal for 10 Euros!

Disliked: More powerpoints would be good, and the showers could really use some shelves or something up high to keep clothes and stuff out of the water. There are no toilet seats, but that seems pretty common in Greece, at budget and public places anyway.
