Excellent hostel. Amazing staff, good location and clean facilities. Good wi-fi, nice free breakfast. Very nice stay overall.

Amazing location and great times. Right in the center of Acropolis (can see it from the rooftop bar), you can walk to everything. Most everyone is welcoming and traveling alone, so a very "more the merrier" type attitude. The happy hour specials, great people and the Grecian bartender that taught about 20 of us two different grecian line dances made it hilarious. The one major negative is the showers - they're super touchy and spray water EVERYWHERE no matter how hard you try to avoid.

The Wi-Fi is far form be the best and when we asked about how to go to the islands nearby the staff send us to an agency. Thereceptionist was nice and we booked the tour with the agency. Later we've found out that we could have visited the islands just taking the ferry by ourselves which would be way cheaper and joyful since the cruise was full of elders. That's the kind of information members of the staff should be able to give us, suggest go by ourselves instead send to an agency.

Not super happy about the fact that they own two separate hostels within a few blocks of each other and on my arrival sent me to the second one. I booked my stay at the one listed here and assumed that's where I would be staying. Did not appreciate being sent to the other one at midnight.

The hostel is good for the price. It's slightly on the basic side but does the job perfectly well.

Met a brilliant bunch of people at Athens Backpackers, the rooftop bar was perfect for meeting fellow travellers and the lounge area was also great for mingling. Free breakfast was appreciated and the staff were really helpful. Absolutely brilliant stay, I'll be coming back!

Rooms and bathrooms feel a bit cramped and small, location is great, right next to metro station, lots of great restraints and bars within close walking distance. Rooftop bar is great with great views!

Very nice hostel. Liked the proximity to the Acropolis. Didn't like the the fact that the shower was open to the rest of the bathroom so that everything got wet, and that you had to clean up the water after showering.

This hostel is perfect for party lover. Rooftop was amazing, cheap beer and nice view to Acropolis. Location is perfect. Just few steps from metro station and center to everything you must see in Athens. My room was spacious for 6 people with balcony. It's so safe 24/7 so no worry about roaming around the area or even arrive late at night. Breakfast is too simple; bun, boiled eggs, and coffee tea. This hostel can be loud because of the rooftop bar so be prepared a bit. Definitely recommend !!

This hostel is amazing! Their rooftop bar has an incredible view of the Acropolis and I made some great friends. Breakfast is included but ends early so make sure to set your alarm. Great energy and vibe about the place. Good location to all major attractions.
