Athens Backpackers is set in a great central location, just between the Temple of Olympian Zeus and the Acropolis. This hostel features free Wi-Fi, free breakfast and a rooftop sports bar with Happy Hour drinks promotions. Hostelworld guests tell us they'd recommend this hostel to friends because the 'staff are amazing, helpful with everything and super-accommodating' and 'the morning walking tour was perfect...and you will learn a lot about areas that you can then visit on your own'.

    As the hostel is currently under renovation, we were staying in Athens Studios. I don't know about Athens Backpacker's, but Studios was a great place to stay. Very central only a few minutes from the Acropolis, clean, and with a good breakfast and bar. What I really enjoyed a lot was that the room itself included cooking facilities. I hadn't had this in a hostel ever before and it was great.

    Exactly one week before we were to leave for our trip, we got an email saying that Athens Backpackers was under renovations for the whole winter, and our reservation was going to be at Athens Studios instead. It wasn't a huge problem because Athens Studios was nice, safe, and in a good location, but we didn't appreciate the last minute notification when it seemed like their renovations had been going on for a while.

    This hostel is in the leave the location as it’s right by the Acropoli metro station, perfect for those wanting to head and see the Acropolis. Clean and spacious throughout. First hostel I’ve ever seen that has its own cooker, kettle and kitchen sink....so you can become pretty self-sufficient here. Breakfast is included in the room price and offering a buffet type style which in my opinion is good value for money.

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.
