Hostelworld says

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'.

    Very good location, next to a metro station and the Acropolis is just round the corner. There are a few bars and many restaurants around the hostel. Facilities are cleaned once a day and the bedrooms are nice, with balconies.

    The hostel is currently under renovation so all travellers are redirected to another location, there is no rooftop unfortunately, the location is good, the restaurants and bars downstairs serve good food and are good value for money.

    I enjoyed stay at Athens Backpackers. Good staff and the bedrooms are very comfortable but they don't have plug in for your mobile when do you sleep in the top bed. I hope they think about because I couldn't use my mobile during the evening because was charge way from me.

    Not the hostel we originally booked due to ongoing renovations. As far as the rooms go its perhaps the worst hostel I have stayed in, extremely basic, limited plug sockets, temperamental ACU and the lift broke. That being said, its perfectly located in the city and the sports bar was a good place to meet people. Highly recommend the free walking tour, great fun with an experienced guide.

    I stayed at Athens Studios Greece the sister hostel. Only that one is open and all bookings are redirected there. Hostel is great for meeting other people except there is no area everyone hangs out. Breakfast is a cold plate between 9-10:30 due to covid. Do the walking tour with Andrew he's amazing and you'll meet a load of people! They need to add some furniture to the balcony and open it up more as it's only 18:00-23:45 atm

    Important to note that once you make a reservation you will be staying at Athens Studio not at the hostel. So it's not the same thing. There's no communal area.. No shared kitchen (a little kitchenette in each room) The place was clean, good location.

    arrived late to find out that hostel is relocated, which wasn't mentioned on the website. my situation was difficult as i was with broken mobile in the middle of lockdown situation in pandemic Athens at night. when i found the new location no one was there to receive me. eventually, after many attempts, one of the guests heard the bell and let me in. no one in the reception till midday next day and no breakfast that was supposed to be complementary.

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.
