A great option for a quick overnight stay
Had a long layover in Athens so spend the night and saw the sights. This was a fantastic and inexpensive hostel.

I arrived at 3am to a smiling, sympathetic reception. Breakfast was more than ample. Location was as good as any 5 star hotel. It was as clean as any hostel can be considering the number of international guests, with extra showers and toilets to assist.

Awesome hostel! Clean, and good value for the money. Location is amazing! Reception staff was always friendly and answered any and all questions we had. Wish there was more bathrooms, though. It was a fight for the shower in the mornings.
