This is a wonderful home from home. Even during a general strike in Athens - which stopped virtually all transport and closed all museums - the staff went out of their way to keep everyone informed. I could not praise them and the room highly enough. Thank you.
The hostel was great. Very close to the Metro and in walking distance to the Parthenon and its museum. The staff was friendly and helpful and the entire hostel was very clean. Laundry was around 2 blocks away and so was breakfast, but wasn't a problem to get to.

Great places just missing a common room at the studios
Nice beds, nice staff, nice bar, nice location and they have a good laundry service
I BOOKED AT THE BACKPACKERS BUT AS SOON AS I ARRIVED I WAS CHANGED TO ATHENS STUDIOS WHICH WAS NICE AS WELL. ATHENS STUDIOS IS GREAT HOSTEL! HAD A GREAT TIME. STAYED AT AN APARTMENT, WHICH WAS REALLY COMFORTABLE, GOOD VIEW AND FACILITIES. ANA WAS AN AMAZING HOST, SHE MADE US FEEL WELCOME AND WAS REALLY NICE DURING OUT WHOLE STAY. PEOPLE AT THE SPORTS BAR WERE REALLY NICE AS WELL. IT IS A VERY QUIET HOSTEL, A PLACE TO RELAX, GOOD FOR COUPLES, FAMILIES OR FRIENDS WHO PREFER TO DO OUTDOOR ACTIVITY

This review is for Athens Studios, because Backpackers was closed for a short time. It was easy to find and was in a good location for seeing all of Athens attractions. The staff was very helpful with any questions I had. Athens Bar was a great place to watch American Football. Would recommend.
Nice brand new apartments, next to the Accropolis. Good location, facilities, cleaning. 3 different kind of breakfast. Nothing to complain about.
Very nice, clean and well located hostel. The breakfast is not buffet but it's ok.
This review is actually for Athens Studios since Backpackers that week was closed for maintenance and they moved everyone to Studios which was a 3 minute walk away. Great place to stay and I'm sure Backpackers is as well.
I really enjoyed. The hostel is situated at very good location close the Acropolis. There is good breakfast , you can choose one of three type meal. There is laundry service. The atmosphere is like in a hotel, but you can spend free time in the bar which is part of the hostel.
I did not actually stay at Athens Backpackers. This is a review of Athens Studios. Turned up to AB at 1:30 am to a letter on the door directing me to AS. No prior warning that my reservation had been changed. Staff did not appear to want to help people. No atmosphere here as there is no common area apart from the local bar and no where to meet people. Shower is terrible (water go everywhere). Main good point was location. This was great!
Only stayed one night, but thought it was awesome. Loved the location! Will definitely come back.
It's a great place to stay. Friendly and helpful staff, kind guests and lots of amazing memories. Sports Bar near the Athens Studios is a nice place to enjoy the night with suitable prices. If you are going to Athens you should definitely consider staying here. You will feel at home.
All good. Great location and big room. No complaints and would happily stay their again.
This hostel was okay. Nothing very special, but quite alright. Breakfast was poor though, because it wasn't enough and I was still hungry. Wouldn't really stay here again, but it was fine.
Very Nice hostel, great location. My room was very big and with a small build-in kitchen, but not enough power socket.
The Backpackers hostel had a heating problem so I was sent an email to stay at the Attens Studiios. The only suggestion I have is to put an additional mirror in the room that can be used when another person is in the bathroom. This was a great value for money hostel. Highly recommended!
I stayed at Athens Studios because the Backpackers hostel was closed for the season. Very central location next to everything you want to see in Athens. Really friendly staff and very nice rooms with a kitchen, bathroom, and balcony. Free breakfast! Definitely recommend it.
I arrived only to found the hostel is closed because of maintenance and the owner of the hostel happened to see me standing outside on the street . So he walked me to Athens Studio , another hostel that's close to the Acropolis Museum . The new one is pretty good actually. The 6 bed female dorm is spacious, with a water kettle and lockers.It even has a balcony and a somewhat partially functional kitchen area. Two minutes walk from the museum and great location.
EXCELLENT OVERALL. I absolutely enjoyed my stay in Athens Studios. The place is in the heart of the city and very close to Acropolis. Check-in was a breeze, the staff were very friendly and accommodating, and the studio room is like a hotel apartment..for a really good price. I highly recommend the studio units. It comes with a balcony, a mini-kitchen, and it's own bathroom. Room service is also available.Reception is manned 24hrs.There's a laundromat nearby. We recommend the 6euro walking tour.
