While Athens Backpackers is better than some other hostels in Athens, I did not think that it was nice enough to justify the cost per night. My bed was more than double what I paid at a competing hostel, and while AB was definitely cleaner and nicer than that one, I don't think those things alone justified the cost. The interned only worked for about 30 minutes of my two day stay here, the breakfast was ok but not amazing, and the rooms could have used more charging ports and better pillows.

The price is cheap, and you get what you pay for. The staff is nice and the rooms are solid, but the place is old, not super clean, and not very well located. Still, it's a good value for your money.
Hard to get around this place; there are too many locked doors.
No one was there when I arrived, had to use int'l cell phone minutes to call them and then wait a while for someone to unlock it, even with a reservation. Very clean but sparce place.
One of the better hostels I have ever stayed in! Really cool staff, including the owner who was super friendly. Goid facilities, and a great ambience.
My one big complaint is they let a bunch of loud kids stay here one night, so it felt like a grade school slumber party. Other than that, nice staff and central location.
Nice hostel. There are actually two of them; the one on the East side of the street is actually much nicer than the one on the West side. The breakfast was good, but they were a little stingy with the eggs. The location was amazing, right in the center of town about a block from the Zocalo.
Nice hostel. Location was a little bit of a walk from the center of town, but not too bad. The Ado bus station is a short walk away as well. Breakfast was a bit small, but it was nice that it was free. The facilities were very clean. They do raise their prices during the festival in July.
Good hostel, very well located, nice rooftop bar, clean rooms, hot water. Internet was hit-and-miss (worked sometimes but not others, stronger in some parts of the hostel than others) and music from the bar was loud the first night I was there but not the others. All in all, a good hostel.
Location is AMAZING! Right in the center of Causway Bay, close to MRT and many bus lines, lots of restaurants and other attractions nearby. Facilities are GREAT! Clean rooms and bathrooms, hot water, a/c, fast wifi, a good kitchen, laundry facilities, great hang-out areas, luggage storage, secure lockers. Staff was SO/SO...Not super friendly, but not rude either. I was not happy with them moving all my stuff around. Also, they change their rates all the time, so watch out when you book!
Very nice hostel in Shenzhen. Good location close to two MRT stations, restaurants, a park, and a mall with lots of restaurants and a grocery store. Not a ton of amenities, but they do have free wifi and clean rooms. The staff is very friendly.
Clean hostel, nice staff, good value, fast wifi. However, I booked this hostel thinking it's closer to the TPE airport than Taipei City is. While it might be a shorter distance away, it takes about as long to get to and from as Taipei main station by bus. So, think about that if you are choosing a place to stay just based on proximity to the airport. Other than that, a very nice place.
Well located hostel, good facilities, free laundry, clean. *HOWEVER* I would NOT advise booking tours or tickets with them. I booked a bus ticket and ended up getting in 2.5 hours later and to a completely different location than promised, having to spend extra money on taxis and almost missing my flight because of it.
GREAT staff, a cool bar/cafe area, free laundry, good tours, close to train/bus/airport shuttle stop. It's a little outside Guilin, so you can't really walk to the city center, but besides that, it's a great hostel!
Very well located hostel, nice rooms, great (cheap) breakfasts.
A clean, no-nonsense place to stay in the Hongik University section of Seoul. Nothing stood out here as being extraordinary, but it was a great value and served its purpose. Unless you are really into partying, Hongik might not be the best part of town to stay in, as it's not close to much besides the university and the clubs. It IS close to the metro station and airport rail though, and has a lot of restaurants around it.
This place is simply average. Nothing wrong, but it doesn't stand out either.
Wow! This is one of the most amazing hostels I have ever stayed at!!! Clean rooms, awesome staff, lots of activities, great location, amazing facilities, self-service laundry, and a great bar/coffee area. You are missing out if you don't stay here!!!
Great hostel! Friendly staff, convienant to airport, fast wifi, and free breakfast (although it was oreos and s bottle of tang). Our one complainant was that the room was a little warm and we couldn't control the a/c ourselves.
This place was nice, and only steps from Khao San. However, I booked a future reservation directly with the front desk, and when I got there for my next stay, they had no record of me. I would book online in the future.
Pretty good hostel, I especially liked the convienant location, fun atmosphere, and the attached gym/boxing arena. The staff isn't really fluent in English, so you might experience a few miscommunications like I did.
My room had bed bugs, and the staff did not seem to care. The rooftop bar and location were good, but there are better places.
I really like this hostel! It has a great location close to the center of town, was pretty clean, and included a lot of amenities. The internet was free, as was the parking (right out front!), and beer and larger bottles of water were only 1 euro. The breakfast, in my opinion, is not worth the cost (it's just a couple pieces of bread and something to drink), but there's a fridge where you can store your own food from the grocery. All in all, great hostel!
Wow, I love this hostel! I have stayed twice, and had a great experience both times. There are always cool travelers staying here, the hostel is always clean, and there are lots of extras included. Plus, it's in a great location.
Good overall hostel. Awesome staff, very quiet, fairly clean, has hot water, good breakfast. About average distance from the center of town. Not many people hang around the hostel, so if you are looking to meet other travelers, this probably isn't the place for you.
First of all, let me clear up the past review about the bugs. I just stayed there, after that review was posted, and any problem that there may have been was taken care of because I didn\'t see a single bug the entire time I was in the hostel, it was actually one of the cleaner ones I have ever been in. Now for the review: This is one of the coolest hostels I have stayed in. The hostel its self is clean, has many ammenities like free internet, kitchen facilities, and laundry (a huge plus during the sweltering Hong Kong summers). The staff is amazing. The location is one of the best in all of Hong Kong, it\'s really hard to find hostels on the island, let alone one so close to the central part. Everyone staying there was really cool, I ended up spending most of my time in HK with the people I met there. I will be back for sure! Thanks again for helping make my first HK trip so great! -Brian
One of the best I have ever stayed at, very nice and helpful staff, in a great area, and has lots to do. Also free internet and TV, a good breakfast, and airport transportation (only $16).
