Great location! Good place to stay as a young traveller. Only issue was the one bathroom shared for the entire floor.

A basic hostel but clean and tidy. Good location right next to Acropolis, museums and restaurants. Mainly everything walking distance. Has good wifi and a computer to use if needed. Basic roof top bar but nice to meet other travellers in the evenings. Had an ensuite in dorm room with little balcony. Didn't have enough wall plugs though. Great waking tour-would recommend Georges tour!

Great hostel and great location. Perfect if you are a solo traveller like myself. The roof top bar and sports bar are an awesome combo to meet fellow travellers. Joanna was definitely the best! She always made everyone feel welcome and had a wonderful personality! Would recommend this hostel to anyone!

Loved the rooftop bar, has a great view to acropolis. Kinda looks magic during the night. Have a beer, sit on the loungers and meet new people. Beds are alright, its clean and staff was nice. In the heart of the city so it's easy to walk to restaurants, shops and to almost all the museums and sights.

Firstly although I booked the back packers I was actually in the studio appartments which would have been fine if they had told me when I booked! Also be warned you can't actually check in before 2pm even though when you book it says you can! The wifi doesn't work in the rooms, the breakfast is free but very basic... Great location which explains the price but actually not that great of a place. The rooftop bar was great and the guy who works in the mornings at the sports bar is amazing!!!

Clean and convenient (close to station and sightseeing spots) with all the necessary facilities like coin laundry and food available. Perfect for short stays. Would suggest they indicate which hostel (backpackers/studio) they're going to allocate us in to prevent us having to walk around with heavy luggage.

Great location right next to the Acropolis and metro station, clean rooms and a fantastic walking tour. I arrived at 1am in the morning and felt very safe getting to the hostel from the airport by myself. Do the walking tour on your first day to give you the background to all the history then grab your ticket to see the Acropolis from 6pm. Brekkie does the trick (egg, bun, salad) and the rooftop bar is great!

Rooftop bar is awesome and the bar staff are nice and knowledgeable. Good place to meet people. Location is pretty good within walking distance of many good sights. Rooms are good, can't complain. I would go back here if I visited Athens again
