    Loved the location! Right next to the Acropolis and the metro. Really good food right there as well. The staff was awesome! Rooftop bar has a great view. I visited in May and there was no AC in the room, but it wasn't too hot. Rooms and bathrooms were super clean. Really enjoyed my stay!

    Amazing location! I loved socializing on the rooftop bar with the sun setting over the Acropolis. But there was no problem resting if I needed to go to bed early. The hostel was generous with information and the staff helped me decide fun things to do. I liked the neighborhood and that it was so close to a metro station and grocery store.

    One important thing that I would recommend is that the hostel switch on the air conditioner in the rooms automatically instead of leaving it up to the residents. I called the office at night because my room was quite warm, and I discovered the switch under an unmarked wood panel outside my door. I'm sure other residents want the AC on but don't know how/if it exists at all. Other than that, this an AMAZING hostel. Could not recommend more.

    Great place to stay in Athens. 5 mins from the acropolis and a really safe location to be in. The hostel room itself was very cramped but other peoples rooms were spacious so we just got the short straw. The room had a balcony attached which was amazing when it was too hot in the room. Rooftop bar is really lovely and had great views of the acropolis at night. Definitely would stay here again if I was in Athens.

    This hostel promised to have a 24 hour reception. I arrived there at 12:30AM and no one was there. Luckily I met two strangers who shared their bed with me, otherwise I would’ve been homeless for the night. Everything else about the hostel was beautiful including facilities and location and food. But they should have someone there 24/7 if that’s what they say on their profile. Very misleading.

    Facilities are very nice, but it’s not a very social hostel and no rooftop bar. You didn’t see a lot of people downstairs. They don’t provide a blanket unless you ask. You have to cross a busy street to go into Monastrikaki. Otherwise, it was a nice stay. Very nice bathrooms and bed. Quiet hostel.

    Would not come and stay here again. The hostel is located in a very touristy area that doesn’t feel very authentic. Given that I paid 30 euros for one night in a six bed dorm, I didn’t feel that this hostel was worth the money. They didn’t provide towels and you had to bring your own locks/buy one to store away your valuables safely. The rooms were small and felt stuffed, not cozy. Seemed lik a hostel for party people who want to hook up. Go somewhere else if you’re looking for the „real“ Athens

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.
