In Your Pocket Guide Athens 2015 "Editors Pick"

This hostel is a never-to-be-forgotten experience. 18-30 curious Americans adore this fully non-smoking, English speaking joint, but if you hang out there long enough you'll get to meety people from all around the world. You can always chill out for free on the settees if you arrive in the middle of the night and your booking is for the next morning. A heavy duty oven with all necessary food preparation accessories awaits the cooking types. if it's luxury you are after, look elsewhere. What you'll get here is a clean room for a good night's sleep and great opportunities to meet free style travelers like yourself.
