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

After breakfast we headed to historic Athens for a free walking tour, and that turned out to be the best decision ever. We ...

The guards have a ceremonial walk and still wear traditional uniforms.It was somewhat unnerving to see many armed police and guards, but i guess we have that in Washington too.
... with bullet proof vests, an assortment of weapons, and full face shield helmets. That is their Barney Fife so to speak! Next stop was some delicious cappuccino freddo and of course, shopping. Sammy found some beautiful locally made jewelry with Ancient Greek symbolism. A nice lunch at a very trendy restaurant was followed by tapas and Greek beer on the roof of our hotel to watch the sunset. Another day, another amazing ...
The mod squad set out early this morning in a black van with driver to explore the sites of Athens. We have made some great calls about transport of a morning as we have come off the boat and today was no exception. It was great to have a knowledgable local drive us all comfortably around, giving us a local flavour to the history of Athens. Athens is actually one of the largest and busiest working ports in the world. At ...
