There are many hostels in Athens, but one that sticks out in my mind as being great is the one locate on Agias Theklas No. 10 Monastiraki. This is a great hostel because it is accessible to all the areas in Athens that a traveller may be interested. But not only is it superbly located, the views from the Athens hostel are also incredible and the rooms are all newly renovated, plus there is a rooftop terrace where travellers can enjoy each others company. This hostel is fairly new and just opened in June of 2008.
