One of the best hostels I've ever stayed at! Location is perfect, everything was very clean, nice room with a balcony etc. The bar/common area is a nice place to meet new people and the atmosphere was amazing! Would definitely recommend this hostel for solo backpackers!!

In a great location. Staff was friendly and helpful. Fyi..the luggage storage was just a glass room over the lobby when you first go up the stairs with no locks or anything. The entire place did feel secure.

Absolutely great location, couldn't be easier to get around to all the main spots you want to visit in Athens. Rooms are small, no extra space, little storage lockers, decently comfy beds with a charger and light for each bunk. You can hear everything at night: the bar downstairs, people outside on the street and the bathrooms aren't sound proof at all. Roof top doesn't open till May which was disappointing. Breakfast was simple but good and plentiful. Drink specials 7pm to 8pm.

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.
