    500 character isnt enough to tell how amazing this place is! The staff are some of the best, wackiest, funniest, most accepting, brilliant people I have ever met. Every one of them has a story to tell. Costas is an absolute beautiful soul and an even more talented artist. Walter is one of the funniest people I have ever met and makes the world renowned walterita. Stephanie is one of most kind and helpful people on the planet and she streams! Martin is the type of man everyone needs in their life

    Awesome spot, great staff, only problem was bar/reception was very very cold and it would’ve been nice if there was at least a microwave to heat up our food. Otherwise fantastic stay. Great location and fantastic value. Special shoutout to Walter, Kostas and Martin who made our stay even better.

    Really fun hostel with great vibes over New Years!! The bar was comfortable to hang out in and play cards, chess and meet and chat with new people coming in. The reception/bar tenders, Costas and Stephanie, were super helpful and nice to hang out with!! The cleaning staff also did an awesome job keeping the place clean! Highly recommend.

    Very good location, nice staff, and chill-out evenings at the bar. The rooftop bar is closed in winter, but one can visit the roof at 5 pm, it has a nice sunset view. The bathroom is a bit of a problem, there is no shower door, so water is everywhere after one takes shower, but manageable, we dint face that much of an issue.

    Comfortable rooms and sleeping pods, this place is fantastically located, close to the Acropolis and adjoining metro station. The staff is very friendly and we had some fun nights at the hostel bar even during low season! Only drawback, if you need to cook your own food the kitchenette is not equipped and they need a microwave. But you're right next to a supermarket, convenience store and the local souvlaki (under 3€ pita sandwich). Good place for short stay or longer term.

    Very Good

    There was a lack of atmosphere at this hostel. I had a pleasant first evening due to an American staff member who really engaged with guests and created a nice social vibe in the bar area, but during the rest of my stay he was not there and the hostel was pretty dead. I thought the administration could do a lot more to foster interaction amongst guests such as organizing shared meals. Also, my room was incredibly small and the toilet was not cleaned during the entirety of my stay.

Athens Backpackers says

I think it's where we are and who we are that make us unique. Travelling is for meeting people; that's why we've designed our place and all the activities so you do just that.
Our Skybar has 360 views of the Acropolis, so close you can almost touch it. Next door is the Fish Café, with the best meals in Athens under â'¬8. Our street also has a Laundromat and two unique bars…plus, our hostel is on a road lined with orange trees! The smell of orange blossoms is amazing.
Our guests are constantly raving to me about our Sky Bar, since it has cheap ice-cold beers and cocktails and the fact they meet so many new people!
We cater to anyone and everyone because we all bring something unique to the party. We accommodate individuals wanting to meet people and families desiring privacy and amenities. We also have elevators in all buildings and emergency assistance call buttons in the bathrooms.
