I dont quite understand people who go for a budget hotel and then criticize it like it was a Hilton.. This is a budget hotel, but taking that in consideration its an amazing place. Built on a hillside within lika a hanging garden, rooftop rest and breakfast area with wiew of expanse of athens (its a high point above city). Clean, albeit bit oldfashioned (remember, budget?) rooms with solid doors and proper locks. Dont worry about the neighborhood. Yes, its rebel country and police dont dare to venture there but the locals are amazing and you will feel safer than anywhere else. If you have a fee evening, DONT go elsewhere, just traverse the streets of Exarcheia district that surrounds it. You are guaranteed to meet cool people and see mindblowing streetart. Also be sure to climb the hill behind the hotel and explore park around it. This is one of the coolest hotels i have ever been to. Absolutely going back!

Before arriving, I was sent directions and a welcome - very helpful. The staff were professional and very accommodating. The room was secure, pristine and well furnished. The outside of the hotel doesn't seem too hot, but I was safe there, welcomed and helped. A very good Greek restaurant up the steps and immediately opposite was a great find. Inexpensive taxis to centre of city. I would heartily recommend this hotel as an excellent base in the city. Quiet surroundings. Thank you

The hotel Dryades is a low budget hotel, located in Exarhia, excellent for backpackers! I am recommending this hotel to traveller, who don´t need luxury accomodation. There is also the possibility to cook in the kitchen, which is shared by all guests. In the room is a small TV and a small fridge.
