Was only there for one night but had an awesome time! Was a little disappointed that it wasn't more clear what the difference between the two buildings was... Note to anyone reading, when booking a "Deluxe" room, it's in the Athens Studios building, and not the Backpackers building. They're close together but not the same. Facilities were great and very clean. Enjoyed having a kitchenette and private bathroom after coming from another Athens hostel the night before.
The location is excellent for seeing the main sights of Athens, and the various amenities offered by the hostel (rooftop bar, sports bar, restaurant), provide a great atmosphere for meeting other travelers.
Being at the hostel was really nice, the location is awesome! Close to everything! The staff are friendly and helpful! Got an fantastic tour from George! The rooftop is awesome with happy hour! Totally recommended
This hostel was brilliant. Literally 5 minutes from all of the best tourist spots in Athens, and equipped with a rooftop bar that shows the Acropolis lit-up at night. Their sister hostel down the road also includes a Sports bar and the prices are cheap cheap cheap. The staff are incredibly friendly, in particular Jackie and Euphrosyene (who has, legit, the coolest name I have ever come across), and really helped make Athens an amazing experience for me. Stay here, and you won't regret it!
Great location in Athens, the staff were very helpful. Rooms & bathroom were very clean. Would definitely be back :)
Would definitely stay here again and recommend it - excellent rooftop bar and the fish and chips really are top drawer!
Amazing location, right in the centre of Athens. Easy walking distance to major attractions and metro station is just around the corner. Staff are very helpful and reception is open 24h. Great atmosphere, walking tours daily and a free breakfast.
I was in the studio flats, it was kind of hard to work that out from the email i received, which suggested a different address. The studio flats are very much more like corporate apartments, so if you are looking for a party try and head to the hostel instead.
I will definitely come back. The staff and location are excellent. Glad I learned about this option.
helpful staff, great rooftop bar
Hostel was really nice and we got an upgrade to a private room for the three of us for basically no reason but did not complain! The fact that the hostel was in to buildings a short walk apart was slightly annoying but oh well! Rooftop bar was cool and was a great place to meet people and so was the sports bar by our part of the hostel.
Superb location and great facilities and wifi. The rooftop bar is a plus. The staff is poor, just polite but sometimes different members gave different directions and not very helpful. A letter for me was delivered and they gave it to me 4 days after. Breakfast could be better with what they charge per bed. Anyway, i would stay here again, but i'd like that the hostel could do a bit more to gather the backpackers together.
Brekky was bread and eggs, fruit would have been good. But greatvlocation 100m to train. And walking distance to all the sights.
Just a regular hostel, the staff is usually kind, the position is reareally central and confy, I felt a little blackness of atmosphere, and the rooftop bar is quite overrated. Avoid the shared bathroom option if you can, there's only 1 bathroobathroom for 3 rooms, so generally there's quite a lot to queue
The location cannot get any better. Clean, super central with a basic breakfast where you can choose from 3 options. All with a boiled egg. The rooms are so spacious for a hostel and complete with mini fridge and stovetop. My only complaint was the hostel has no common room Except for the pub beneath it.
Good location for a quick overnight stay!
The hostel is nice, the staff is friendly and it´s very cool they have a walking tour for just 6€. But the floor of the bathroom was always wet because the curtain of the shower is too short (they leave a floorer for us to clean). They should definitely add some light tables for the bunk beds, with plugs because they were all far from the bed, and there is nothing to put your staff on when you go to sleep, like your cell phone or the key card. Wifi was not great, it worked so so, but it was fine
Hostel was so clean and tidy and the staff working in the bars were lovely and friendly. Had a great time! I'd definitely recommend :)
