Excellent hostel. Second time I have stayed here and don't think I could stay anywhere else in Athens, location, rooms and atmosphere are amazing! Rooftop bar is the best place to be.

I love this hostel, it's clean, in a great spot with nice staff. However Studios was good but breakfast is very poor lets down the experience.

I had a great stay here. The dorms were big and clean. The only thing I hated was the shower as its in such a weird place and the rest of the bathroom gets soaked. This location is ideal especially if you want to go to bars, restaurants, the agora, etc. It's very close to everything. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend this place.

I arrived at 9pm in the hostel for just one night in Athens. Immediately met other people at the rooftop bar to hang out with for the rest of the night. As I had to check-out the next day it was awesome to fins some very comfortable couches in the ares people leave their bags to sleep for a couple more hours. Staff was friendly and room was clean. A bit overpriced comparing to other hostels but I would recommend for the nice and social atmosphere.

Great location to all the ancient sites of Athens. The bar on the roof had great views and offers a great place to meet fellow travelers. Rooms also had balconies to add to the appeal. Would definitely go back.

Great way to meet people here since they have a sports bar. They have laundry available so you can have a beer while you wait for your clothes. Close to the metro which was really nice since we had to go to the airport early in the morning. Rooms are nice and clean with AC.

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!

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.

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.
