EXCELLENT location! Beds are SUUUUUPER squeaky and the road outside our room was pretty noisey. If you're a light sleeper, I do not recommend it. But you can't get. Better location

Fantastic location, can easily walk to Acropolis. Rooftop bar is lovely and you get a free ouzo shot when you arrive. Breakfast is provided but it is just bread and eggs so you may want to buy some fruit. Staff are friendly and knowledgeable.

We stayed at the Suites which is newer and apparently nicer. It felt more like an apartment. Is was nice and clean and lots of space for 6 people! The fish and chip place below was cheap and soo good! Laundry and everything else you needed was right there which was perfect. Athens is pretty walkable and the location was good. The roof top bar was beautiful as well!

A great hostel! It's right by the metro and by the Acropolis. The people here are very friendly and great to party with. Rooms are clean, wifi is good, and I would definitely stay here again!

Athens Backpackers was quite simply the best. The staff became instant family; looking out for you and providing you with anything you were looking for. They made every place so much fun and really developed a strong positive atmosphere. The accommodations were also great, with tonnes of other great backpackers and the atmosphere of the hostel was unreal. The two bars were both a blast, I must admit I had never karaoke'd so hard before in my life. Thanks for everything from these guys, Jeff J

Excellent location, staff amazing (specially in the rooftop bar) thay have a bar/rest, washing machines and internet place a couple of blocks away. Beds are confortable, common areas are nice and helps people to interact. Breakfast, was ok.

It was nice to stay once. and if you like hanging out with people, I recommend. But I had some small issues which are not that big deals, but little bit annoying. During shower, hot water stops and come out cold water when other room use water. No big lockers that covers a luggage but only small one you can put in something important(you need your own lock, of course.) and no curtain on beds for privacy. But overall it was okay. good location;)

My experience was wonderful. I was on the third floor in a large airy room with a great view of the city. It is a great location, easy to get to main attractions and safe area at night ... right by the Metro! Also the roof top bar is fantastic! The only downside I could see was the lack of organized event ... but if you are happy to explore on your own it is a great place!

The location is great, and the staff is very nice. The breakfast is somewhat simple (hard boiled eggs, bread rolls, jam, tea, coffee). The common bathroom on my floor got very dirty very quickly, and wasn't maintained too well. The shower in that bathroom also flooded easily. The beds were on the squeaky side, and not the most comfortable, but then again it's a hostel. Overall I would recommend.

Great place to stay while in Athens! The staff and facilities are great, the rooftop bar always has plenty of people to meet and chat with during happy hour, the free walking tour put on by the hostel was one of the best that I've done. We had to keep switching rooms because the place was very busy. But overall we enpoyed it so much that moving from room to room was only a minor inconvenience.

Was with a group of 5 friends and we stayed in one of the apartments. Bathroom was tiny and got very wet with showering but the rest of the room was great. Really good location...everything you could need or want to see was nice and close and they had a sports bar and fish and chips shop down stairs. Great place to stay.

Everything was fine, just 2 rather small negative things: The Location of our room was not in the same building as was shown on this homepage, its like 10 minutes walking away. Secondly, at about 10:15am the cleaning personal became seriously stressful, we were still in the phase of packing up (checkout 10:30) but they were so into it to get the linen already. It would be better when they start cleaning at 10:30.
