Small but clean
The entrance was bright and clean and the bar was good. The check in staff were friendly and efficient. The room was small but spotlessly clean as was the bathroom. The free breakfast was fine. The price was reasonable.
The only thing I didnt like was the area. It's in a rather dirty seedy part of Athens on a dark street. However the location is near a Metro so convenient.
This is a hostel
For a hostel, it is very nice and seems to have a good community, nice staff. The free washer and dryer is a major plus.
The online presence of this establishment was very misleading. I expected it to be a proper hotel, especially for the price I paid. It is a hostel (a good one, but still a hostel). The quality of our single room for the price required was pretty unacceptable. It was clean, but extremely spartan in furnishings and honestly a little sad. If you are in your early twenties and traveling, stay here. If you are looking for something a little nicer, I could not recommend.
Location was very convenient, although run down.
Plumbing. For 90€ with a minimalist self-service continental "breakfast" for two, it was not worth it considering the Amalia at Syntagma was going for 120€ with far superior rooms, service and a full English breakfast for two. Good for backpackers, but bookings.com should not advertise this as a hotel. At best a pension.
Close to metro station and old city sites. Worked well for us as an overnight stay to get to see things quickly with rapid transit to the airport in the morning. Family room for 4 worked like a charm - very clean and neat 'basic' accommodation. We were pleased to find the hot plate worked well for us to have a cup of tea even. Great cost for a family of 4.
We needed to leave on the metro a half hour before breakfast was supposed to be available but the staff said the cold cereal and juice continental breakfast wouldn't be available for us. After going out and buying something on the street I actually found that it was available. The service was marked down as 'fair' because of this. The shower curtain was also barely long enough to go around the rail so water gets on the floor. A bit more length would have been good to keep things dry. Beware that the map provided by the internet link from 'Booking.com' may lead you to the wrong place. The location is actually quite close to the metro station and in a safe part of town (the map led us to a place further away and in a less safe part).
The location was superb. We loved sitting on the roof-top terrace and looking out over the Parthenon. Good internet access.
As this is a hostel, it is very loud, louder than any hostel I know. The staff are all international travelers themselves, not trained in hotel service. I had written ahead asking for an early check-in since our 12- hour flight was getting in the am. The reply didn't address my question but simply stated that they looked forward to our arrival. An early check- in wasn't available. In fact, our room was not even ready at the designated check-in. We had gone to eat, returning at check-in time, only to sit in the lobby for another hour while they finally got around to cleaning our room. I would not recommend this hostel for a first night after a long international flight. There was no art in our room as the website indicated. Not an "art hostel"
