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

... decorated main dining room. Tables are well spaced creating the right atmosphere. The clay vessels by the entrance, 'the small street market’ that Milos dares to put in a luxury restaurant create school internationally. Close by, the ice bed of fresh fish and open spaces, create the most pleasing ambience for a promising outing.
The summer option setting is out in the beautiful garden terrace where the dining area is. Once ...
... vinegar -- delicious! I will now be making a Greek salad on a regular basis when we return! Simple and delicious! We ordered traditional Greek food - moussaka and souvlaki. Both were delicious and we found a new liking of authentic Greek food! This was not the first time we have had salad with no lettuce on our journey; actually the majority of salads have been without lettuce...and it is great! The vegetables make the salad delicious and are the vocal point, ...
... I decided to go into the Nike store next to us to ask someone if they spoke English and could help. As I was walking to the store, a cab driver met me half way and asked what we were looking for. He had been there a while so I'm guessing he saw me standing there with the bags as Logan went looking. I told him the hotel name and he started looking it up on his GPS. Logan gave him the address and come to find the road we were on stopped and started up ...
... tour departure. Wrong. Wrong. Sean woke up in a panic, checked his ipod and it said it was 12:51 pm! Steph then verified with her iPad that it was indeed the correct time. As we were 6 hours late for plan A, we needed to make a plan B. So we quickly gathered ourselves and made our way to the Acropolis. It was indeed a self-guided tour. It was hot and sweaty as we climbed our way ...
... It is twenty euros for both the blue line (which takes you to the Acropolis) and the red line (which takes you everywhere else). You simply sit up top, put on your headphones to hear the commentary and watch the touristy things the city has to offer flow by. If you want to “Hop Off,” you do. Then, you return to that (or another) HOHObus stop and wait for the next bus to come by. Usually it works well even if it ...
