There's no lobby at studios so it's hard to meet people. The bar downstairs is a little pricey and the breakfast is not much to talk about. The showers are a bit gross because there is no separation from the rest of the bathroom so the water goes everywhere. That being said, the staff was nice and the stay wasn't bad. The room was pretty clean. It was a bit pricey, all things considered.
Great atmosphere. Our walking tour guide Walter was hilarious and was very knowledgeable. I would gladly stay there again. Rooftop has a nice view of the Acropolis.
Staff was incredible, so friendly and helpful and full of fun suggestions. My only complaint is that there are no lockers. Otherwise it was perfect. Great location, very clean, and the atmosphere was perfect!
This hostel is in a great location for pretty much everything you want to do in Athens. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, I'd definitely go back.
The Sports Bar had fantastic events. Ranging from Karaoke Night to watching soccer games and pub quizzes. The room was kept clean and all staff were friendly and ready to help you. Excellent location, just minutes walk away from the Acropolis! I had a fantastic stay.

The studios were great! Perfect for a couple and enjoyed the bar downstairs, breakfast was small but it was free! Very close to the Acropolis and metro!
The rooms are spacious, the staff is very helpful. Location is alright, close to the Acropolis. The roof top bar wasn't open unfortunately but I went up for the view. It lacks a cosy common area. The fridge in the kitchen made a lot of noise so not great for a good conversation. The touristy street right behind the hostel was a bit annoying to walk through. You had to pass through each time to reach the Athens sports bar which had some deals with the hostel.
Very clean and updated. We had a three person private and it has three twin beds, a bathroom, and a small kitchen in this very spacious room.
Great location! The room needs curtains for the windows and a longer shower curtain for the bathroom. Have to provide own lock for the lockers but things were safe in the room and hostel.
The location of the hostel is great and the staff is very friendly and helpful. However, I was expecting much more following the reviews from other users. The facilities are a bit old. If you go to Backpackers, note that you won't have the bar and other services in the same building. They are located in Athens Studios, which is 5-10 min from the hostel. The area for meeting other travellers is limited to the kitchen. Don't expect a lot from the breakfast: bread, butter, boiled eggs and coffee.
