    Perfect location, very nice facilities with two bars including one on the rooftop. Nice atmosphere with other travelers looking to socialize. Helpful staff arranged for covid tests and taxis. Perfect location to explore the surrounding neighborhoods in Athens. Only suggestion would be to add curtains to the beds, every hostel should have them in my opinion.

    Nice hostel - they did double book my bunk so after I checked in at 4Am, I was woken by a random girl at 6:30 am. The rest of the stay was nice - close to the Parthenon which was cool. I didn’t like that the breakfast location was different and when I went to use the laundry facilities and get change at the partnering restaurant it wasn’t available. Party atmosphere if you are into going out.

    The location is the best thing about this place. Unfortunately I had an issue with men showing up in the female dorm when I was alone. The worst when I was changing in the room alone, he opened the door with his own key never saying anything, I told him to wait, pushing the door closed and he still walked through so I jumped to the bathroom. When I tried to talk to the front desk, I was met by a very rude employee who was dismissive and couldn’t care less that my privacy was completely invaded.

    Nice place FANTASTIC STAFF However I went a few years ago and it was more open plan in the common spaces which made it easier to socialise, they have upgraded the space and upped the prices, but honestly the vibe was better before.

    AVOID. This place is soulless, overpriced, male staff are rude and unhelpful, and it was impossible to get a good night's sleep. They have adopted a ridiculous policy of switching OFF the air conditioning at 11.30/12 at night, so the rooms are very hot and uncomfortable. AC is all controlled centrally by staff at front desk, who said they couldn't turn it on at night as others have complained that it gets too cold. Why not adjust the temperature instead?? If you value sleep, go elsewhere.

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.
