Location Silent hostel
Bathroom Facilities, e.g. no kitchen Internet does not work in rooms
Near to metro station Victoria (about 2 mins walk), surrounding area is convenient with a lot of shops and restaurant. Friendly & helpful staffs. Working wifi. Free computer for online. We changed to private double room on 2nd days and the room is ok, they clean the room everyday. Good water pressure for shower.
We stay at 6 beds mixed dorm on the 1st night and the condition of the room is horrible - small, humid, dark (only 1 light), dirty, congested and no staircase for upper bed, no locker, no blanket and only 1 poorly maintained toilet shared by 2 dorm. Extra 5% charge for credit card. No TV in double room as stated.
-The people at the desk are very friendly, always smiling and helpful. -The position of the hotel was super, 1 minute from metro Victoria
-The rooms/beds are basic, but this is also reflected in the price of the accomodation
They were very flexible about our time of arrival. Moreover, even though we were supposed to be placed in two separate rooms, they managed to put us together. :)
cold at night, charged for the bed linen
Leaving ... even though it meant having to pay for 4 nights after only staying for about 5 hours.It also gave me an idea as to what a prison cell must feel like, as if I needed that experience. So overall not one true positive experience
Our experience was terrible, our room had an overwhelming smell of cigarette smoke despite it being a "non smoking" room. There were pubic hairs throughout the bed. The room is very dirty and run down with electrical wires exposed and rat holes throughout the bathroom. The door to our room had been beat in multiple times and slapped back together. The TV was missing and the stand that once held it was beaten off. There was an abundance of different bugs found throughout the room and the carpet had a mold smell. The area the hotel is in is very sketchy and not a safe area. The hostel is clearly used as a crash pad for young people that are looking for the cheapest possible option. This place is not worth any perceived savings or "discount". We saw a different room that looked worse than ours so we ended up leaving after the first night (too late to find another place). The staff are complaisant with issues as I am sure they feel overwhelmed with the colossal effort it will take to turn this back into a usable hotel. We stayed in many hostels on our backpacking trip and this was by far the worst and not anywhere near the quality that can be found in this price range. Do not stay here.
No blankets or bedlines
Only about 10 minutes walk from the station, reasonable night's sleep.
Facilities a little decrepit, wifi not great/non-existent, self-catering facilities poor.
There are two computers with free access. Aircon works well. The hotel is 2 minutes walking from a metro station, and 25 minutes walking from the main touristic areas.
I tried two different shared dormitories: both were small but in one of them, the bathroom was clean, new and huge. The other dorm had a poor bathroom. I also slept one night in a "normal bedroom" with my friends, which was more pleasant (more light, nice bathroom, sheets and towels available). Sheets can be rent for 1 euro in the shared dormitories.
The young man at check in was great and friendly WiFi reached our room Area was shady, but not terrible Metro station is less than 5 minute walk
Over priced Didn't have enough towels for travels there were 3 of us and 2 towels Toilet did not flush and water ran all night Moldy shower TV did not have any channels that came in Did not know there would be excess flight of steps to room which was not convenient for our elderly pax Bed was uncomfortable Bathroom was not the most clean Dor did not lock properly and did not feel safe in hotel as people were loitering outside room door to access the WiFi. Tried to get a refund for leaving early as elderly travel was afraid to stay alone and we ended up having to pay for all 3 nights anyway. 5% surcharge for using credit card While the overall area was not terrible, I wouldn't suggest it for older people as the nightlife is a bit shady Website stated would provide transportation, but only thing offered was Metro or bus, thus wasn't an option for our 70 y/o mother
Easy found location, low price, nice people, quite clean, good restaurants around
Only one key per room
Only good thing is the price / quality ratio.
Solid hostel, wifi was alright, easy to find, no issues really. You pay for what you get, a place to lay your head down.
Shower was small and the door didn't lock. No problem as long as you have respectful neighbors
Air conditioner did work and dripped down the wall. Caused rotting mattresses and it wrecked. Dirty bathrooms...electrical wires hanging above shower. I could keep going.
Pokey shower. Poor curtain that meant water splashed everywhere and soaked the bathroom floor.
Location was great. Very close to the metro Stn and also you can walk to train station where a train leaves to thessaloniki.
They offer 1 euro for blanket.
Staff was very helpful, location is great. Plus everything that great about hostels: just hang at the bar at happy hour and be open and you'll meet many great people with quite a few great stories. It's also got some good artistic design on the bar's doors.
WiFi was intermittent. The rooms were in fairly poor repair, electrical jacks hanging off the wall etc.
Friendly staff and good location
near to the centre 3 minutes to the subway station friendly staff
for 4 people was room too small
The place is in the center and the care is excellent
Excellent and safe location also during the night, one minute from Victoria metro station, bars, shops and pubs, ten minutes walking from the National Archeological Museum. 24 hours service at the reception and working wifi. Reasonably quiet even during the night. Hot shower, fresh air conditioning, clean sheets, clean bathroom.
Old building, old rooms, toilet flooded after the shower. Only one electrical socket in the quadruple room.
It was the best value we could find but still overpriced. Very close to metro and attractions.
We were unable to cancel our third night even with 2 days notice and were charged the full amount. Very disappointing!
Very friendly reception staff
Bar was closed.....
