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

... a park because of the previous nights events. We settled our differences over a frozen strawberry drink and went up to the Acropolis. The scale of it was overwhelming that such a massive structure had been built so long ago. The Parthenon alone was finished in 9 years remarkably. We meandered through the heat trying to take in as much of it as we could but eventually the elements got their way and we made a steady departure to get ourselves to some food. I ...
... a poor mans cigarette….a black rollie that smelt disgusting, especially when he chuffed 2 down in the car with his window only open about 1cm. Not good for my head or stomach L
I praised the lord when we arrived at our hotel and could get out of that dungeon!
Walking in (still with my sunnies on) I felt out of place. He hotel was amazing, more staff to help you than you could point a stick at and chandeliers everywhere, a far cry from our past week, but ...
... pool now; I'm updating blog. Dinner will be late, at 8, but we had a big lunch! Tomorrow, our bus will take us to the East coast, where we will meet our two sailboats! MONDAY, JULY 14, TUESDAY, JULY 15, WEDNESDAY, JULY 16 ======================================= ========= We've been sailing for three days now, to several smaller islands, whose names were all new to me, so it may or may not matter to any of us. We started off from Nauplia, after we visited the archeological site at ...
This morning we woke up in the port at Athens and departed the Harmony V. We had a great time cruising the Greek Isles but are ready to move on to Istanbul. Our first stop is the Benaki Museum with its vast collections illustrating the breadth of the Greek world and Greek life, from ancient times to modern. Many of the items we saw were part of a larger collection we saw at the Archeological museum before we left Athens, but since we didn't have a guide there ...
... some of the Olympic torches from London, Sydney, Athens, Beijing etc. We then walked back to the bus stop and caught the bus to the parliament buildings but couldn't get anywhere near them due to police and army forces guarding them for some reason. We walked from there to Acropolis hill and went up to see the Parthenon - it was pretty amazing. They are doing a lot of construction there at the ...
