This hostel is outstanding. Great location, fantastic rooftop bar, lovely staff, fab facilities, clean and great value for money. We spent 2 nights in the hostel and 1 night in the studios down the road when they couldn't fit us into the hostel - so helpful! Walking tour is great, only 6 euro to see everything. Studios have a great sports bar and restaurant, and self service washing machines.

Staff always friendly and helpful. I stayed in two rooms in the Athens Studios and they were clean and had all necessities. Facilities of the hostel were great which included a bar, cafe and laundry downstairs, free wifi, free decent breakfast. Did a great walking tour organised by the hostel. Met some fun people and of course best thing is location. Would recommend this hostel to others for sure.

Great atmosphere! The combination of rooftop bar and sports bar (two separate locations!) means you really get a great chance to meet and interact with people. Plus the prices for all their stuff are really good!

Excellent way to begin your Greece adventure. The roof top bar is a must. Great vibe :)

We were placed in the Athens Studios rather than the hostel, which was like having our own apartment. Super clean and comfortable with great beds and air con. I personally prefer hotels simply for the chance to meet more people, but the roof terrace (at Athens Backpackers) is open to Studios guests too, so it wasn't a big deal, just 3 minutes down the road. A bit more expensive than most hostels, but worth it. Would stay again.

A well organised and spotless place to stay in Athens. Run by well organised enthusiastic young people whom understands the needs of the visitor. I can see why then reviews are so good.

Stayed in the private apartment building, which is around the corner from the actual hostel. Room was super nice, had 2 balconies! Pretty cool place, they have their own sports bar with happy hour deals and karaoke. Location can't be beat, it's literally down the street from the Acropolis. Wifi in the room is shoddy but works great downstairs / at the sports bar. Oh yeah, free breakfast!

Staff was great and both the studios and backpackers were nice places to stay. (We stayed in both). Very easy access to all major sites, port and airport. A little more expensive then most Athen hostels but good atmosphere and location to make up for it.

Great hostel. I personally don't care for Athens but if you're going to stay there this hostel is the best. Super clean, free breakfast, kitchen, great wifi, spacious rooms, helpful people at front Desk, and literally right next to the acropolis. Rooftop bar (a little squished but still cool) great for meeting people!

I really enjoyed the people who work here, so helpful and friendly. My friend and I were kind of stranded in Athens and they went out of their way to help us find a last minute ferry to Crete and gave us wonderful recommendations for what to do. Also, it's located right off of a metro stop, which was great for getting to and from the airport and ferries. Many hostels advertise air conditioning, and don't have it, but there is great AC here! The roof bar has a killer view of the Acropolis, too!

as soon as i got there, they told me it was the wrong hostel, it was but mine was 2 minutes away, it was studios hostel, and it was really good, from the begining they gave me directios and invited me to the rooftop bar, wich has a expectacular view

The cleanliness and amenities were more than one could ask for. The only thing staying at the studios is a lack of a common area at the lobby to hang out and meet others. Though, I met really cool people in the dorms itself so that was fine. Worth the money!

Great hostel, wish I had more than one night. Stayed in studio building, everything was updated and quite modern. A small breakfast was also included at no cost. The location is great, very close to the metro and the Acropolis.

One of the best perks about Athens Backpackers is its location. The entrance to the Acropolis and Akropoli metro station is just 5 minutes walk away. The rooms were clean and well kept. From the rooftop bar you can see the Acropolis which looked stunning at night. The other Athens Backpackers bar was a 5 minute walk away and opened till later than the rooftop bar. Generally, great atmosphere and good place to meet people and hang out. Lots of restaurants also close by.

Booked the backpackers, but was directed a few blocks away to the studios. Would have been nice to know beforehand that was where I was staying! Nice room, more like an apartment, however AC only worked in the living room, not in bedroom, making it hard to sleep. Also lack of charge plugs by the beds. Great location, right by acropolis. 15 mins by taxi from bus station, 20 mins by taxi from port. Laundromat, bar, and restaurant downstairs. If AC worked correctly I would recommend!
