Very good hostel, too bad that the staff team isn't so helpful..... But it's ok you don't need them. This place has a great location and during the night the roof bar is the meeting place.

My friend and I had a really nice experience at this hostel. The staff were incredibly friendly and very knowledgeable. The studio apartments are spacious and lovely - you can cook if you want in a fully stocked private kitchen. Speaking of food, the breakfast is nice too. It's located right in the historical centre. Definitely recommend this hostel.

I've been traveling for 3 months and this is the best place I've stayed at by far! Perfect location, amazing staff, so much fun! I wanted to stay longer! Only bummer was the breakfast but that's no big deal in the big picture! Love love love this place would definitely come back and recommend to everyone!

The location is perfect, downtown, near the acropolis and metro station. The bedroom was clean, but the lockers were a little too small. You have an amazing view from the rooftop bar. Staff were really helpful and nice, except for the breakfast lady who seemed a little bored! Big common kitchen. Breakfast was more than enough. I had a nice stay there.

Great location right at the foot of the Acropolis and very nice and helpful people at the front desk! Also, the free shots with checking in was a nice touch!

This place really is awesome. It's right in the middle of all the historical sights and it's less than a minute from the metro. The staff went above and beyond when we got stuck in Athens because of the governmental strike. Nice kitchen too. Really clean. The only downside is that they don't have a laundry service. They have a laundromat that costs €10 to wash and dry a load. That's even pricier than it was in the UK.

Location is really great, just a few blocks walking to the Acropolis and Plaka section. There is a metro station just around the corner, many restaurants and sights nearby, you can go anywhere walking from there. Loved the old elevator.

My sister and I stayed at the Athens Backpackers over Easter. The staff layed on a lamb on the spit and yummie Greek salad. This was free. Greek hospitality is amazing. Nothing was a problem there. On day one I managed to lock the key to the locker, in the locker. No problem, the staff with their magic device opened the locker. We will be going back to stay there again. The location is brilliant along with its staff. Thanks Daniel and Paul and the other guy and the two Greek ladies.

The hostel was great. We stayed at Athens Studios where we had a great room with a terrace. The room was spacious and we were in a 6 bedroom dorm. The bathroom was small but it was okay. The two main girls at the front in the mornings were amazing. They helped us in everything from telling us how to book ferries to Santorini to where to go in Athens and even showed us an amazing restaurant with homecooked Greek food by a sweet grandma and her husband. Love this place!!! Love Athens

Excellent hostel!! Loved my stay and all of the other guests in the hostel. Staff were also great and gave a loads of local tips. Would definitely recommend the walking tour, absolutely amazing. Only issue I had was they keep the plastic on the mattress so there was a lot of crinkling at night but this is not a deal breaker at all, am already planning my trip back to Athens!

I loved staying here!! Everything was great aside from the showers which didn't have proper doors and got the entire bathroom wet every time a shower was taken. Everything else was great though, location, staff, atmosphere. Great place especially for college students.

This hostel is great!!! I got there at 1 in the morning and there was a person to open me and to explain everything I needed to know and made me feel welcome. The location is perfect, right in the city, around the walking street, at few blocks to the Acropolis, at one block of the subway. Price is super cheap. Beackfast is ok!!! Had Karaoke night with was really fun! I did the walking tour with Justin and its really worth it, I loved it!! Best hostel to stay in Athens! Maggie from Argentina
