    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!

At New Year it's traditional to hang a decoration on your door for good luck, usually they have the forthcoming year number on them, horse shoes are popular as are pomegranates. On New Year's Eve when we would bring a piece of coal into the house for good luck here they bring a pomegranate in to ...

    ... of that. We ate our sack lunches with a view of the mountains before getting back on the buses and heading to Athens. We got to Athens around mid-afternoon and checked into our hotel before heading out for lectures. First, Dr. Hatlie took us to the nearby Greek cathedral so we would have a center point so we could try to orient ourselves with the incredibly massive city. From there we headed to the Pnyx where we had a great view of the Areopagus ...

    ... very hot, but made our way to the new Acropolis Museum.

    As you go towards the entrance you can look
    down through the surface you are walking on to ancient ruins below. The museum
    itself has a very fine collection of fragments of marble friezes assembled to
    show how they were placed originally, as well as numerous statues. They also

    ... National Gardens, Zappeion, Monastriraki markets, Parliament and the tomb of the Unknown Warrior (including seeing the Guard), Hill of Ares, and views of the Acropolis and the Roman and Greek agora. So it was pretty comprehensive and George had a good knowledge of history, his city and a good sense of humour. The pace was easy and he managed to find a lot of walking in shaded areas.

    The tour ended below the Acropolis and we had the choice to continue up ...

    ... not seem to be the best part of town, and we had to walk a few blocks to reach our festival. It was quite set back, so we had to stop and ask a girl for directions (she was so sweet and helpful!).

    Finally, we found our festival Plissken 2014!! We have been planning to go to Plissken since January- it is a massive music festival, with bands from all over Europe and the US!

    The doors opened at five thirty. The festival was also ...
