We had a great stay at Athens Backpackers. The atmosphere on the rooftop bar was awesome... Not to mention the view of the acropolis!! The €6 walking tour they offer is absolutely fantastic, definitely do it! Will hopefully be seeing you soon!

Perfect location, great staff (could recommend more things to do-outside the main touristic attractions), very practical facilities with the sport bar and the tasty fish cafe. The dorms have a lot of space and a locker. Would stay there again.

I was traveling with my family and, despite being a hostel, Athens Backpackers was very enough for us and we had a really nice stay at their studios. The room was big, good wifi, with air conditioner, just the toleit had to have some protection to the shower, because everything got wet. The staff was really really helpful and told us everything we could see in two days (definitely not enough for Athens). The hostel is veeeeeeery close to Acropolis and you can do everything by walking.

Location is great--a block from the Acropolis and half a block from the subway. I stayed in a 4-bed dorm. Had air conditioning. Spacious. Breakfast (free) was bread & jam--simple but sufficient. Big shared kitchen. Roof bar was popular and has a great view. No complaints!

Great location, close to the Acropolis metro station. Great facilities. Roof bar with wonderful views of the sunset and happy hour at discount prices.

We were in the room on the fifth floor, which had no lockers (the staff said somebody broke them and they hadn't been replaced yet). Another room we walked by had a sign on it that key cards weren't working, and there was just a key in the door that anybody could use to open it. For these reasons the security was poor. Our shower also didn't work one day, and the other day it would only run if it was cold water. Location can't be beat however, and the rooftop bar was good.

Great place! Only complaint is that most of the female staff were short tempered and unhelpful. Everything else is really great!

Fantastic staff, facilities and most certainly the location! This could just be the best hostel I have ever stayed at. Extremely easy to meet other people if you are travelling alone which is aided by the rooftop bar which overlooks the Acropolis. What more could you want?!

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
