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

... century, but matches the stadium from the days of the first Olympics. Great photo spot, by the way!
On Saturday (a day named for a deity that, among others, was originally worshiped hereabouts), we climbed the Acropolis. Humbly we strode in the footsteps of Pythagoras... Socrates... Plato... Aristotle... St. Paul... and Yanni. (Don't you remember his concert from the Acropolis?)
Actually we were striding in the more immediate footsteps of ...
... each year. Many famous singers have performed there - Frank Sinatra in 1962, Luciano Pavarotti in 1991 and 1994 as well as Elton John in 2000 to name just a few! We also stopped at the Panathenaic Stadium which is a multi-purpose stadium used for several events and athletics in Athens that hosted the first modern Olympic Games in 1896. We spent a couple of hours after in the tourist area of Plaka before heading back to the ship for a 5:45 pm ...
After quite a long trek, we are in Athens! Yay! Kyle used his Boy Scout skills to help navigate us west to our hotel, Central Athens. It is beautiful, although it has the smallest elevator I've ever seen. After our first ride in it, we've been taking the stairs! We dropped off our bags quick and headed to dinner. Our adorable bell hop, Demitris, told us about a cute little dinner spot, Tzitzikae. We tried to follow his directions and eventually ...
... a great reason to stay there - worth it! We set off to explore the sights of Athens... The Acropolis was amazing... So cool to see everything up close. It was a very hot and sweaty walk up to the top, but well worth it. The water from the natural spring at the top of the acropolis was a fitting reward for a walk well done ;) Seeing the theatre of Dionysus has been on my bucket list for a while and it was great to get it ticked off. Highlight as a ...
... chomp her way through the three starters and then a main and a desert………….Gee.
After dinner, we were ordered on deck to watch the ship take off………erm start going. Yes.
So the pilot boat came on side and moved along with us as we started to motor out to sea. Then came a great crashing crescendo of music, including trumpets and drums, as the mainsails, all by themselves, started up the masts. Well, ...
