Student and travelers Inn is another great choice if you're a young traveler. The facilities are nice and clean. Offering 4,6, 8 dorm rooms with an option of shared or private shower. Hot water of course. They offer storage for a fee. They have a commune room with internet and television and where you may enjoy some cold drinks and watch some television on their flat screen t.v.. The manager lady is very nice and knowledgeable and helpful. Central to most attractions, easy walking distance from the Acropolis and etc, on a street with lots of shopping and great resteraunts. Book in advance as it tends to fill up. They lock the doors at night, security is very good. I stored quite a few bags of goods here and was happy to find them when I returned two weeks later in the same order I left them.
U can see the Acropolis from ur window (10 min walk only) cuz it's centrally located for everything Athens is famous for! It's located in Plaka where cars are not allowed, so it's quiet place to stay and u can have a good quality sleep. Moreover, it's not a backpacker hostel where packed of drunk youngsters stay :P
Unique Quality: courtyard with big screen tv, restaurant, vending machines, travel service, heater/AC.
The students Inn isn't the typical kind of place which i would normaly stay in. It was quite a change for me as im quite spoiled and used to a minimum (!) 3* hotels.
But when i arrived to this hostel i was quite surprised. first, its fantastic Location, second it wasn't what i had in mind... probably what i imagined was the simple hostels that you see in the far east... But this was different.
It was like a small hotel, very clean, really nice and helpful staff, and the room was not that bad.
They offer either shared rooms or private rooms. Needless to say that i wasn't going to share a room with anyone, oh no, not me.
The private room was quite small with a comfi shower and small clothes cupboard.
Well basically thats what i needed.
The problem at this hostel is that in the morning when the cleaners are starting to work...thats aprx when your sleep is ending..
They never talk quietly and the wooden doors are kind of light ones so...
The time that i was there was once again an advantage cause i think that in summer time its fully booked and then it can be much more noisier...
The price was relatively Expensive 45 Euro per night but was changed in March... meaning more expensive at the high season.
Yes thats Athens... expensive but then i wouldn't changed that cause i couldn't ask for a better location, it was perfect, in a lovelty lovely quite area of the Plaka, where you are so close to the Akropolis and all you have to do is walk 2 min' and look up and there it is...
Now after visiting a few well known areas of Athens i know that in my next time there i'll stay only in the plaka and no where else !
This simple hostel is extremely well located, in the Plaka, where you'd probably go dinning several times, so it will be a short way home afterwards.

Unique Quality: The location can't be beat. The owners of this place also own another hostel in Omonia-Hostel Aphrodite. If you have the choice, avoid Omonia. As a solo female traveler I found Omonia to be a bit dodgey.

Students & Travellers' Inn
About 22 GBP to a single room with a private bathroom.
The facilities there are terrible bad. Nightmare!
Its privileged location is in Plaka district, the absolutely city centre.
I think it was around 15 euros/night.
Unique Quality: Pretty sparse and under construction while I was there (Mar '02) but probably only due to the upcoming Olympics in '04. Actually everything seemed to be under construction in Athens... I'd seriously consider going back only AFTER 2004, but I digress.
Directions: This hostel is right on the 'Plaka' or shopping district and near the Acropolis.
