Quite possibly the worst hotel we ever stayed in, but hey it was cheap (50-60$ US) within short walk to the Acropolis. Still room was big but dated thats ok its basically a pension or hostel with rooms. But bathrooms were filthy and the noise from the street awful. It just rolls up the downtown walls. Taxis are a joke,...

We were a bit concerned about going to fivos hostel after reading all the bad reviews other people left here, but to be honest I didn't find it that bad. Ok the bathroom was small and the shower didnt have curtains which meant the bathroom got flooded whenever you had a shower and maybe the bedroom was smaller than usual,...

In the middle of the night, bathroom water from the floor above started leaking into our room at Hotel Fivos. The hotel said that this was the first time they have ever had that problem, but by the look of the ceiling, you could tell that water had been leaking for a while (you could see an outline of the...

Fivos was basic but it was clean and perfectly acceptable for us. Good if you are on a budget and only staying a few days. Very central location and within walking distance of many tourist sites and restaurants. We had our own double room, it was a bit noisy at night. The breakfast was fine, staff were helpful enough and...

I thought this was a nice average place to stay. It was certainly easy to find, convenient and had all the functions of a cheap hotel. We had a private room, the bed was a little uncomfortable, but we had a decent shower, and bathroom and it was clean. I'd recommend this for those that need somewhere to crash and...

The only thing good about this hotel is the location. The place is filthy and I am convinced there were bed bugs because I woke up with bites on my arms. It is a bare minimum hostel with no frills. And considering the amount of money being spent, I would recommend finding someplace else. You might compromise on location but...

It doesn't matter that my expectations of hotels in Greece were low when it came to this hotel. This is actually a hostel and it's DISGUSTING. We didn't book any hotels in advance of coming to Greece as we had been advised we would actually save money by showing up and bargaining with owners. We couldn't find ANY affordable place...

This was the worst hotel I have ever seen in my life. A local told us it is a converted jail cell block... AFTER we checked out. It is even worse than that sounds: 1. Bathroom smelled of sweat of pig. 2. And urine. 3. No shower screens, so above delightful smells joined us on the floor, and in the...

The only good thing about this hostel was how easy it was to find from the train. The bad news - after 16 hours of travelling - the rooms were a mess - the sheets were not changes, and the bathrooms had not been cleaned from the previous user. This is pretty important when toilet paper goes in the garbage...

The owner is a crook. Don't every stay here. I could go on and on about our experiences here. I can't believe that it was reviewed in Time Out Athens a couple years ago. Rooms are small. No elevator. Breakfast is a joke. Overpriced.

Staying in Monastiraki

Neighbourhood Profile
Monastiraki
Monastiraki is a souvenir-hunting enclave with a difference. Apart from the dramatic backdrop of the Acropolis, its network of alleys and pedestrianized streets surround the remains of both the Greek and Roman agoras, adding the quaint concept that this is where the ancients also came to shop. Named after the tiny monastery church at its center, Monastiraki Square is a lively spot by day or night, with street peddlers vying for your attention to sell you nuts and sweets. Down beside the metro station, the official Flea Market is an unbroken row of souvenir shops until you come to antique-oriented Platia Avissinias, while Pandrossou Street on the other side of the square offers more tourist shopping. The pedestrianized street beside the Greek Agora is lined with cafés offering fine views.
