Great location in Gazi. Very close to a lot of bars/clubs and the metro is quote literally 2 minutes away, and 1 stop away from Monastiraki, 3 stops from the Acropolis. The lobby is quaint, friendly people usually hanging out. The rooftop is very nice, you get a decent view of the neighborhood and it is nice to hang out on. There is a good sized kitchen available as well. The rooms were spacious, and the beds were private with a curtain, light, and electrical outlet for each bed. The bad part - the bedroom and bathroom were pretty dirty, even after being "cleaned". Nothing crazy, but enough to make me a bit uncomfortable, even as someone who has stayed in plenty of hostels of a lower caliber. There was no AC in the rooms, which was advertised. Very disappointing and frustrating when it was warm and humid outside, so sleeping was difficult. They also advertised washer and dryer, and there were none available.

This place is great because if one guy and his name is Theo. ^_^ His smile is just infectious and makes you feel welcomed. Thank you so much for all the help during my stay. Most of the guest staying here are hostile. I attempted to talk and make friends but this place isn’t like other hostels I’ve stayed at. I felt lonely here, the reason why I come to hostels when travelling alone is to make friends. Someone to talk to whilst travelling solo. I also booked a all male dormitory, but I found out there was a woman in the room with us. Which is not good practice. There is a rooftop area which is lovely especially during sunset. I would go there daily to sit and have a drink. Great in the morning too to stretch and exercise. The dorm itself was okay, the mattress sheet was torn and the blanket too thin, it gets so cold at night. The pods are nice but some shelves would be good addition. Hooks in the room will be a good addition. You get a towel too which is great. Bathroom is inside the dorm improvements to make, the shower head could be on the wall as it would make showering easier. It was cleaned and dressed daily. There was a few days there was no hot water so I had to shower with cold. This didn’t bother me as was in the morning. The kitchen, it’s a really good space well equipped but a microwave would be nice addition. The fridge is disgusting it needs a good clean. I didn’t have breakfast (it’s 4€) it’s very basic coffee and pastries. There’s better places in gazi. There is a laundry service for 5€, you can dry clothes on balcony or the sun roof. If you need any help there’s lots of information at this place for sightseeing and tour. A lot of nightlife, restaurants and bars in the local are.
