Got dumped off at Athen's Studios. I wish they would be upfront on where you are staying. You're staying two blocks away. If you're staying in a dorm, you'll probably wind up staying at Athen's Studios and NOT Athens Backpackers. If you're in it for the view, look elsewhere. You don't know what you're going to get.
Great place – met lots of interesting people there. Thanks!
This is my favorite hostel to date! Very nice, well kept facilities. The staff was super friendly and helpful. The bar in the studio portion of the hostel was super convenient and a great place to hang out and meet other travelers at. I traveled with three other people and we rented one of the private four person suites which was almost the same price as the dorms -- worth it!
The location is fantastic. I've been staying in a lot of hostels over the last few months and this one was by far the best. The staff was friendly and helpful and the rooms were spacious and clean. The breakfasts was a little bit of a disappointment but there are so many good breakfast places in walking distance it didn't really matter. I would definitely stay here again.

Pretty good overall, close to everything you would need, gyros up the street are the cheapest and best we had in greece!
It was very good at all. But, just about Kichen... I hope more clean and good facilities. Thank you so much as I stayed there very well. Aiko Hashimoto from Japan
Near from station and stuff was very kind.Wi-fi was working very well.
Great location next to the major Athens attractions. Huge con- I was really looking forward to the rooftop bar, it is the major feature of this hostel and is the main photo of this hostel, but it is closed for the off season. No where in the hostel description webpage does it say this. Only until after you have put down a deposit does it say it in the confirmation email. At the very least close the bar but have the rooftop still accessible. Will not be recommending this hostel.
Great hostel! I went in offseason though so the hostel was kind of dead..the rooftop bar was closed, but the backpacker bar was open down the street. I can imagine it gets way more fun in the summer!
Really nice staff, awesome location. Great value.
The included breakfast was terrible (stale bread, rotten boiled eggs) the facilities where quite dirty and there were hardly any powerpoints in the room. The lockers weren't big enough to fit your bags in, only some stuff. The location was good. But try and stay at the studios because they seemed a bit better. Wouldn't stay here again.
The best hostel ever!! The staff is fantastic, the rooms are clean, the bar is fun, the location is unbeatable! I checked in and immediately felt at home. I made friends here who I ended up with in Santorini later. Don't even bother looking at anything else, this is where you want to stay!
