Everything you could need in one little block: a comfy bed, a good bar, nice cheap restaurant and a laundromat. There's a great atmosphere between this hostel and it sister hostel a few blocks away. Everyone meets up on the rooftop bar for drinks and heads out for dinner together. Really great community.

We stayed in the apartment building not in backpackers. Great location near main sites easy walk around city. Did 3 hour walking tour from the sports bar next door was excellent. Apartment lovely with a balcony and small kitchen. Only negative was bathroom floor gets very wet when showering. They have sqeezie mop to move water to drain. Not cheap at E 80 a night and the breakfast next door at fish and chip shop was very well ordinary, poor selections very basic

Within walking distance from all the sights. We didn't go out in Athens so couldn't comment on distance from nightlife.

I stayed one night at the Athen's backpackers in a 4 bed dorm. The hostel is very clean, including the toilets and beds. In the evening they have happy hour at the roof top terrace with a great view to the acropolis. I met a bunch of fellow travelers up there and there was great atmosphere. At 11 we moved to the Athen's Studios pub (check which room you are booking, you might get a bed at the Studios instead of backpackers). Late at night went to my room to sleep, and it was quiet.

An awesome hostel in a fantastic location. The staff are friendly and speak at least Greek and English. They offer a variety of tours and the two bars (Sports and Roof bar) are excellent.

Only stayed for a night in between my flight and ferry. Private room was big and spacious. Wifi was great. Rooftop bar was a great place to relax after a long flight.

The hostel could not be in a better location. Right in the footsteps of the Accropolis and a short cab right away from the bars in Gazi Square. The rooftop bar has a great view of the Accropolis and is a good size for getting people meeting each other. Lockers in the rooms, very clean, very helpful staff.

Nice place to stay, very well located, with good staff and great bar on the roof top with the view of acropoli. Although we stood in the studios, which are around 100m from the hostel building where the bar is located. The studios were also pretty nice.

Excellent location, very near the Acropolis at calm neighborhood, near the metro. Rooms have big, individual lockers (bring your padlock). Good security. Has 1 bathroom per 3 rooms (each floor), although one was always reserved to just one room and in the others were completely dirty. Staff wasn't very helpful, didn't readily give directions or tips. Has a kitchen, but the oven is broken and the hob requires some pyrotechnic abilities to be turned on. Has free wifi but PCs are paid. Overall good

Excellent location, friendly staff. Happy hour at the roof top was great, beautiful view of the Acropolis. Our studio was very comfortable and clean. The breakfast was average. The guided tour is brilliant! I'd definitely recommend it.

The location of Athens Backpackers was great. Really close to the Metro and the city center. The rooftop bar is a small but has an amazing view of the Acropolis.

First time we stayed at the hostel we stayed at the studio, which was perfect! Nice rooms, with a bathroom inside each room (one bathroom for 6 beds) and a nice breakfast (not too big, but you can buy adicional things for one euro). Second time, we weren't at the studio, and I think there were not enough bathrooms..only one bathroom for 3 bedrooms with 6 beds each (also, the sink, shower and toilet were all together, which means if someone is taking a shower you can't use the toilet).

I was only there a couple hours but seemed a good hostel

A very well located hostel which offers a good €6 walking tour and a relaxed, fun vibe. Breakfast is very average and the administration of the air con in rooms is strange and bound to cause problems in dorms; control is held at reception for which anyone in the room can obtain and change the temperature or turn off.

Just a few steps away from the entrance to the Acrópolis. Nice bedrooms, clean hostel and helpful staff. The view of the Acrópolis from the top of the hostel is just amazing. Definitely the place to stay if you are a back packer going to Athens.
