    Athens backpackers made me feel super comfortable as a first time solo traveller! I was able to make friends right away and everyone was very sociable. I was sad to leave and hope to be back again one day! :)

    All facilities were perfect. The room was spotless the only downside was that the aircon was blasting through the night and it was pretty cold just with a sheet. The rooftop happy hour was so fun and all the other people staying were really respectful! Would definitely stay again the location is unbeatable.

    Incredible location: a block from the Metro, a block from the Acropolis entrance and the Acropolis Museum, tons of restaurants, cafes, etc. Solid bunk beds with plug and light plus ensuite bathroom for the 6 bed mixed dorm. Big lockers. Small balcony. Friendly, helpful staff. Clean and modern. Rooftop bar open from 4pm with amazing view of the Acropolis. Free luggage storage but it's not secured. No kitchen or even fridge.

    Overall a great stay, friendly and helpful staff, great social atmosphere, comfy beds, amazing rooftop views, massive lockers, and a perfect location. My only feed back are the bathrooms. The lights turn off while you shower and you need to make sure you’re moving enough to keep the sensor on. The other thing is that there’s no shower curtain so the floor is always wet and there’s no shelves/hooks to put things on. Would still recommend to stay here!

    Very Good

    Location was great. Overall the room was alright but there was a hair on my pillow and sheets so I wasn’t sure how clean they were. DO NOT do laundry on site there. Find another laundromat. The washer turned half of my clothes brown and another girl had her clothes turned blue. I had mine in the dryer for 75 minutes and they were still soaking wet, but was offered no refund after spending over 10€ and having to go elsewhere to redo my laundry. Don’t recommend if you’re wanting to actually sleep there befo

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.
