La ducha no funcionaba bien ademas que se mojaba por todas partes, el desayuno si se puede llamar asi era muy escaso, la calefaccion tampoco funcionaba bien y por el mismo precio que cobran uno se puede ir a un hotel un poco mas lejos y con todo mejor

The hostel was great. Very close to the Metro and in walking distance to the Parthenon and its museum. The staff was friendly and helpful and the entire hostel was very clean. Laundry was around 2 blocks away and so was breakfast, but wasn't a problem to get to.

Review for Athens Studios: we had an absolutely wonderful stay here! We actually booked 3 beds at Athens backpackers, but mistakenly arrived at the studios instead and were so lucky that one of the managers, Daniel, upgraded us to a private 4 bed apartment! The room was big, had 2 balconies and was super clean. The staff is helpful and very friendly. You get yummy free breakfast and the wifi is free, too. A really great hostel to meet other travellers and we would recommend it to anyone!

I BOOKED AT THE BACKPACKERS BUT AS SOON AS I ARRIVED I WAS CHANGED TO ATHENS STUDIOS WHICH WAS NICE AS WELL. ATHENS STUDIOS IS GREAT HOSTEL! HAD A GREAT TIME. STAYED AT AN APARTMENT, WHICH WAS REALLY COMFORTABLE, GOOD VIEW AND FACILITIES. ANA WAS AN AMAZING HOST, SHE MADE US FEEL WELCOME AND WAS REALLY NICE DURING OUT WHOLE STAY. PEOPLE AT THE SPORTS BAR WERE REALLY NICE AS WELL. IT IS A VERY QUIET HOSTEL, A PLACE TO RELAX, GOOD FOR COUPLES, FAMILIES OR FRIENDS WHO PREFER TO DO OUTDOOR ACTIVITY

Très bon choix d'hostel !! Très bien situé et la réception est prête à répondre à toute les questions. Chambre et salle de bain très propre et je me sentais en sécurité car carte magnétique pour tout ouvrir même que la nuit il faut la carte pour entrer dans l'immeuble. J'y retournerais sans hésiter.

Muy buen hostel. La ubicación es sin duda inmejorable y el entorno muy seguro. Además, el staff siempre está dispuesto a ayudar y dar buenos consejos donde ir. Agradezco mucho que me hayan devuelto mi billetera! La bonestidad se aprecia muchisimo también

This review is for Athens Studios, because Backpackers was closed for a short time. It was easy to find and was in a good location for seeing all of Athens attractions. The staff was very helpful with any questions I had. Athens Bar was a great place to watch American Football. Would recommend.

This review is actually for Athens Studios since Backpackers that week was closed for maintenance and they moved everyone to Studios which was a 3 minute walk away. Great place to stay and I'm sure Backpackers is as well.

I really enjoyed. The hostel is situated at very good location close the Acropolis. There is good breakfast , you can choose one of three type meal. There is laundry service. The atmosphere is like in a hotel, but you can spend free time in the bar which is part of the hostel.

I did not actually stay at Athens Backpackers. This is a review of Athens Studios. Turned up to AB at 1:30 am to a letter on the door directing me to AS. No prior warning that my reservation had been changed. Staff did not appear to want to help people. No atmosphere here as there is no common area apart from the local bar and no where to meet people. Shower is terrible (water go everywhere). Main good point was location. This was great!

It's a great place to stay. Friendly and helpful staff, kind guests and lots of amazing memories. Sports Bar near the Athens Studios is a nice place to enjoy the night with suitable prices. If you are going to Athens you should definitely consider staying here. You will feel at home.

This hostel was okay. Nothing very special, but quite alright. Breakfast was poor though, because it wasn't enough and I was still hungry. Wouldn't really stay here again, but it was fine.
