I paid for 4 nights but ran away on the last night after another solo traveler left. My bedroom door got stuck due to some unknown reason, the owner himself couldn't open it so he broke the door and started screaming in creepy sounds, accusing me of doing something to the door. He increasingly made creepy sounds and looked at me angrily that made me too scared I had to grab my laptop and my phone to run away for my safety, leaving all stuff behind. After that, he charged me more than 100% for things I did not know. During the day time, I heard some creepy sounds coming from the basement like someone was tortured. I was too scared when I read on the Athens News that the owner was accused of having mental problems. He also had a blog where he accused guests of break-ins and thefts which I highly doubted.

This is an absolute lie. She clearly came to try to close my business, likely paid by competitors, and damaged my $700 energy star fridge, changed the locks on the bedroom door she was staying in so it caused a lot of damage, stole bumper stickers and books, and caused other damage. There is certainly no creepy sounds, and my hostel is by far the most quiet of any I have known, and I have stayed in scores of them around the world. This review is libelous and needs removed.
