The staff was wxtremely friendly and helpful! I absolutely loved the location. It was not hard at all to get to usin the metro. The only issue was the dorections on the website send you to yhe rooftop bar, not the actual check in office. But they are not far from each other.
Staying at Athen's Backpackers was great. I just randomly booked this hostel from others reviews, and lucked out. This is one of the two best hostels I stayed in the whole time I was traveling. Location is great, staff is great, rooms are big, and atmosphere is good. Katerina was awesome and helped me out so much while I was there. Theo was really cool and I had some good conversations with him. It was a good place to stay in Athens and definitely wanna go back to see the friends I made.
great place. staff is very friendly, location is right by the acropolis and a metro stop, plus a few bars and resturants, and best of all they have a rooftop bar with an amazing view and cheap drinks.
The location is perfect, just steps from Acropoli metro station, Acropolis Museum etc. The only problem that the lockers are small.
Is a very good place to stay, one of the thing that I want to remark is the staff, was very very helpful, always assisit me. Good place to meet people as well, clean and safe. Beyond my expectations

I had a good time there. I loved the roof top bar, the view is awesome and it was also very easy to make friends.
Stayed there with 3 others. Staff was very helpful and sports bar a good place to meet people. The bathroom was a little moldy but we were out and about. It's close to a lot of shops and places to eat.
WOW ! Words cant describe, id say the Pearl of Hostels ! Location, staff, Room, and services were 2 thumbs up! Trust me, you'll want to stay longer, I've stayed in countless hostels around the world, but this one beats them all !!!
A very nice roof top bar that I could meet others and have a good view of Acropolis. Just a few minutes walk from the metro. The breakfast is great.
Great that they let us come early and drop our stuff off and even eat breakfast. The rooftop bar was great. The wifi however did not work at the hostel only at the studio rooms.
This is a decent hostel in a good area. If you get lucky, you'll get a small kitchenette in your dorm room. However, why are the mattresses wrapped in plastic? Uncomfortable, noisy, and makes me feel like lots of people wet the bed. The laundry is overpriced and the stairwell smells like fish and chips, but heaven forbid, the internet works in the bedrooms. Win.
This was a great place to stay, right near the Parthenon.
Really friendly staff, great location, couldnt ask for better.
