Honest Review of Athens Hub Hostel

I arrived at Athens Hub Hostel after weeks of partying on the islands of Ios and Paros.

Completely drained and exhausted, I wanted to stay in a hostel that focused on comfort but still was somewhat social.

Athens Hub Hostel seemed like the place to stay.

Where to book

Typically I prefer to book hostels on hostelworld. Occasionally, if I have points for savings or I’m booking a private room, I use

Both these booking platforms are simple to use, have upfront cancellation & refund terms, and offer a level of protection that other websites may not offer.

My Hostel Essentials



Hostel address: Agias Eleousis 7, Athina 105 54, Greece

Located in Psyri, this hostel is literally in the heart of Athens.

I loved being in the center of the city. I felt like the location is a huge advantage because it’s on a quiet side street near the main Psyri strip of bars and restaurants.

Surrounded by the hostel you’ll find plenty of delicious restaurants, bars, and easy access to many of the top attractions and tours in Athens.

6-bed female, 4-bed female

Bathrooms at hostels can make or break a stay. The bathrooms here were always kept impeccably clean. The showers are nicer than mine at home – it feels like a luxury spa experience.

Some of the perks at Athens Hub are what make this hostel stand out.

Check out the bar/lounge area for a drink or if you need to work remotely. It’s a great place to socialize or work remotely.

They also offer a full (and affordable) breakfast menu in the morning that was tastier than some of the brunch spots I tried.

For a small fee or deposit, Athens Hub also offers laundry, hair dryers, and locks.

Activities & Social Life

Athens Hub Hostel is not a party hostel, but it can be social when you want it to be! I’ve stayed both when it’s bustling with outgoing hostel goers and when it’s quiet.

The biggest party hostel in Athens is Hawks.

Unlike party hostels, Athens Hub is a hostel that has a nice level of social activities available for those who want them but prioritizes cleanliness, safety, and hospitality.

A few activities you can join are happy hour & board games, Pub Crawl, or a Free Walking Tour.


Overall, I think Athens Hub Hostel is a wonderful place to stay in the center of Athens. After two long stays, I can confidently say I would recommend this hostel to anyone, especially backpackers ages 18-35.
