  • Was moved to the Athens Studios because the heat was not working at the Athens Backpackers, but loved the Studios and the proximity to everything. Super nice staff and nice, large rooms with mini kitchen! The balcony was a great touch too :-) Great value...

  • Bar none, one of the best hostel experiences I've ever had. Full stop. You just can't beat the rooftop bar with the view of the Acropolis, and once that closes it's a short walk down the road to their sports bar to continue the party. The staff are awesome. The rooms are clean. If you get the chance, do the walking tour with Georgios (?), who speaks passionately about his city and how the democracy experiment reverberates today. Do not entertain the thought of staying anywhere else.

  • We highly recommend Athens Backpackers. I am 53, my daughter is 25; we both loved it. I will caution about the address. We actually stayed at Athens Studios, at a different address. This was no problem (it was only about a block away), but our luggage did not make our flight. So when we gave AirFrance the address of Athens Backpackers, our luggage was not delivered to where we were staying. Just make sure you know the address of where your room actually is, to avoid any inconvenience.

  • Some staff members were knowledgable and helpful. At least one didn't seem to know much when asked questions and the recommendations from that individual weren't always accurate. At the time she was the only one available to speak to.
