    good for the price

    This is a nice, inexpensive, well-maintained hostel. It’s a bit shabby (older linens, uncomfortable bed) and the bathrooms, while clean, are hard to keep dry, badly ventilated, and lack a true shower head. Fine for the price, but I will pay more for a hotel when I am in the city next.

  • 2.0.Poor

    You won't believe what happened to us!

    Πρώτα από όλα, το δωμάτιο μύριζε απαίσια. Η κυρία στη reception δεν μιλούσε ούτε ελληνικά, ούτε αγγλικά. Μόλις μας έδειξε το δωμάτιο, πάθαμε σοκ! Ένα σεντόνι κρεμασμένο αντί για πόρτα, και ένα στρώμα στο πάτωμα με λερωμένα και τσαλακωμενα σεντόνια. Παπούτσια και μπουφαν σκορπισμένα. Καμία σχέση με τις φωτογραφίες, φυσικά και δε μείναμε εκεί το βράδυ! Προσοχή σε όσους ψάχνουν κάτι φθηνό για ύπνο. Το μέρος αυτό ούτε για ζώα δεν κάνει! First of all, the room we were shown was having a very bad smell, rotten wood and disgusting shoe smell from other people. The lady in the reception did not speak either Greek or English which made communication impossible. We were shown the room by her, there was a piece of clothes hanging by a couple of screws, and behind this was a double mattress on the floor with super dirty bed sheets. I swear someone was sleeping there the same day... There were shoes and clothes everywhere in the room. The photos on the website are nothing alike! So be very careful when you are looking for a cheap place to spend the night! This place is inhuman, worse than a stable! We left immediately as we felt worried about our health! Just keep away and book a proper hotel!!!

  • 8.0.Very Good

    Very good place for stay in Gazi, but not clean

    Very good location. 2 minutes walk from the Kerameikos metro station. 1 station to the center. All bars and discos on site. To myMarket 600 meters, to Lidl 5 bus stops. Friendly service, kitchen and modern decor. Comfortable mattresses. 1) On arrival, it turned out that the property did not have my reservation even though it was made by hotels.com. It was explained to me that the property changed ownership and the previous one did not provide information about reservations. Good that it was out of season and there were free beds. The property, fortunately, charged a fee as in the reservation. 2) The bedding is washed at low temperature, which makes it gray, stained and does not smell nice. The bathroom has no curtain in the shower, so you need to mop. The bathroom is dirty in the corners and nobody uses chlorine for sanitizing. 3) A bunk bed has no railing, be careful not to lie too close to the edge, so as not to fall. You have to be very careful when climbing and descending. Around the mattress is not cleaned, visible dust and hair. 4) The kitchen could use a microwave and more cutlery.
