TravelPod Member ReviewsAthens House Hostel
We found this hotel that fit our budget but after booking were scared after reading many reviews that made it out to be the worst place in the world. After contacting the hotel owner (Mike) I was reassured that my family would be safe, clean and cool (our criteria).
I told my family we should try it one night and then if necessary we will move for the other 4 nights. To our surprise the rooms, bathrooms and kitchen were spotless. The rooms were safe and the building is controlled by CCTV. We were not the only ones that found Athens House Hostel acceptable - 3 nights in the row I found 4-6 people sleeping in the lobby when I got up at 5am to write. Rooms were full, people friendly and helpful.
We also liked the fact that we could walk to all the sites, stores and restaurants.
This is the best priced, safest, cleanest centrally located hotel/hostel you can find in Athens!!
We were glad to have included this for 5 days of our Around the World in 80 Days trip! http://blog.travelpod.com/travel-blog/maaske/6/tpod.html

... with us and today a lady walked a couple of blocks at least to show us the way to the police station.
Took another taxi and eventually got to the New Acropolis Museum. Quite amazing seeing all the statues, friezes etc, but not as stylish and engaging as the History Museum in Vienna.
Mid-afternoon we took off to Corinth.

... the skyline but between the masses of tourists and the scaffolding there isn't much to photograph. The Temple of Athena Nike and the other temples are truly spectacular when you think of their original construction over 2000 years ago. A hidden gem however was to wander the actual park where Socrates and Plato taught their students ...
... quickly off the train leaving my wallet behind, i did not loose much as i needed to got to the ATM, but had decided to do so in Athens itself. At ommonia square i changed lines and then got off at the acropolis station. I then had
to find where i was in relation to the map, then get to the Athens backpackers. I soon discovered that i was in the right place then found the hostel, checked in and went to my room.
In the room i unpacked, meet some of ...
... for the first time! Afterward we went to class in the hotel lobby, both International Business and Entrepreneurship.
After class we settled in for a homework afternoon. We got the idea to try to walk to a laundry mat. It was over a 20 minute walk, only to find the shop was closed down. We are going to have to attempt to do all the laundry in our friend's bath tub because Kelsey and I don’t have one.
