I've traveled a lot and stayed in many places but that one was the most disgusting place I've been to. The place is cheap for a reason - they cheat guest. The owner takes to many bookings on purpose and puts people who booked private rooms with strangers in double rooms with additional beds (we arrived late at night and...

I booked it because it was probably the cheapest option to stay in a single room almost in the city center of Athens. Hostel is in an older house, on the 5th floor, luckily with lifts. The receptionist looks really strange, long hair, tired sight, slow motion, very similar to a dealer of some forbidden chemicals... Surprisingly, he was very...

If you are on a low budget you will be tempted to stay here, but it's well worth it paying a little bit more for another hostel. Dodgy area, dodgy guests, not very nice staff, dirty room (hairs on the floor level of dirty), old and uncomfortable bed. Although it's Spring we were cold during the night as it is...

I was arrived quite late by subway. I need to walk about 15 mins from Omonia station. The receptionist speak not good english, but he did his best to greet me. He even make efforts to fine change for my 50 EUR bill. The next day was a bit strange. The showers, are pretty good. Old, but all worked. The...

When we got out of the airport we had a taxi bring us here. The taxi driver even mentioned that this wasn't in a great location. When we arrived our fears were confirmed. The owner showed us to our room, which smelled horribly. The showers were..okay. Myself and my girlfriend were staying in a room by ourselves and it was...

I've spent lots of times in various cheap hostels, so I more or less know, what can I get for 10 euro. But it was first time I was in such deep shock. This hostel needs renovation more than anything else - especially the common space (shower is a disaster, kitchen is ugly and dirty, they're asking you to wash...

The place was very clean. The rooms were in a good shape, so was the bathroom. Pricen were more than reasonable. The impression of our stay was devastated by the contact with the owner. We had to sleep in an another histel our first night. It was terribly noisy! Another thing is the smoking policy. They smoke everywhere! In the...
