Safestay Athens Reviews

Great location

The location was great. not only quite close to the train station, but the rooftop bar has a great view of the Acropolis. The room was nice except if you choose the bed in somewhat secluded area, which means it can be kinda hot.

Good location but could be cleaner.

The hostel is really well located. Monistiraki is the centre of Athens with everything being close by/walkable. I stayed in a 6 bed dorm, the room was a ok size but can get crowded. The bathroom was very small, so even though it was cleaned daily, I felt dirty touching thing like the shower curtain. There was free breakfast but it wasn't great. Overall, an ok stay for the location but not amazing.

Standard accommodations, excellent experience!

The staff was very friendly, especially Alex! The rooftop bar has a great happy hour with 2for1 beers and lots of friends to be made. The rooms were fairly basic but had all the necessary components. The hostel was clean and run efficiently. Day lockers also made it easy when you had to check out and leave later in the day.

Be carefoul

There are 2 buildings. Make sure in which one are you going to stay. There is one that looks like an abandoned building. Rooms are extremely hot!

Location is not everything

I have spent the last few days trying to come up with a few good things to say about this hostel. But the more I tried, the more annoyed I became at how the good bits are really just used as band-aids by this place to make the other stuff seem palatable. YES it is mere steps from the metro stop; YES there is a rooftop bar with an amazing view of the Acropolis; YES there are some good drink deals and free breakfast; YES there is (theoretically, when/if it works for you) free WiFi in the lobby. BUT -- While the lobby area looks nice, the rest of the hostel is a dump. Chances are, unless you've reserved a private room, you get sent a few doors down to a different building to which you enter through a hallway with an iron gate across it designed to keep out vagrants (which, by the looks of things, it does a very poor job of). If the elevator works (oftentimes it will take you up to your floor, but the door will not unlock for you so you have to go back and start over), you come up to your room which is protected by key-card entry, which would be good, except that you stand about a 50% chance at any given time of your card actually working; if it doesn't, you have to go back down to reception. Maybe this is the *real* reason they're open 24 hours. The rooms themselves size-wise are about normal for a European hostel. The problem is that 1) the rooms are not air conditioned, even though they appear to have an air conditioner in them, and 2) this makes the shower/toilet -- separate closets -- even less bearable. Considering they don't allow you to flush toilet paper ... well, I'll let you fill in the gaps on that one yourself. Also a somewhat lesser annoyance is that while there are lockers in the rooms, they only lock if you buy the locks that they sell down at reception. As for the internet, I fully admit this is absolutely a total "first world problem", but having unreliable access to the internet is actually quite a problem in the 21st century, considering how many travelers need the internet to keep track of banking at home, arrange their transit, reserve accommodation at their next stop. There are two (working) public computers to use, but given that half the people couldn't get the WiFi to work, there was ALWAYS someone on them, and besides, if you have to send any sensitive payment data (for instance), you really shouldn't do it on a shared computer. Anyway, Athens is an interesting city for sure, but next time I go, I will be looking to stay elsewhere.


Great place to stay!

I stayed here for 5 nights and I really enjoyed my stay here. My friend and I met some really nice people. The hostel is centrally located and really easy to find- esp. if coming from the airport. Very secure and the hostel will even let you drop your luggage in the lobby for the day if you plan to stay in Athens a bit beyond your check-out time. And! They'll let you know if any strikes might throw a kink in your travel plans. The view from the rooftop is just stunning. My only dislikes: The elevator up to the dorms was a bit tiny and the way the bathroom door was in my room, when you opened the door to the actual room, the bathroom door flew open and collided with it if the bathroom door wasn't locked. So, if you end up in the Crete Room, watch out for that.
