Staff we're disorganized and not knowledgable, bathroom way to small for 6 person door. Breakfast was awful. Room was clean and location decent

Great location and an awesome roof top bar from which you can see the Akropolis. Bar staff super cool. Walking tour with a knowledgeable person on Athens history. You can't go wrong with this place.

Great location close to the Acropolis. It was easy to get to. I was only there one night but it suited me fine.

Great Hostel, excellent location. Only two things: 1. overpriced computers at the lobby (most of the hostels has a couple for free) and the bar and restaurante also were a little overpriced for Athens. (but of course you can chosse not to eat and drink there)

Incredible location! From the rooftop bar you can see the sun set over the acropolis every night. There is a happy hour every day and the staff are very friendly. The hostel also has a sports bar and restaurant about 5 mins walk away which are both great value for money, an excellent way to meet other travellers and they put on events at the bar so you're never short of something to do. Great hostel.

We loved it here! The location was great and the security was excellent. Our only small complaint would be that we had to walk over to the other location because hostelworld did not indicate which one we were staying at....but no big deal!

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!

Awesome hostel!! The bar at the rooftop has an amazing view of the Parthenon... a great way to end the day!
