Great hostel
Loved the hostel, very clean and efficient. The location is great and they have a nice rooftop with beautiful views towards the Acropolis. Breakfast was decent but it’s free so it’s all good. The staff was super nice, especially Stephanie, very helpful when needed and made my stay super enjoyable. If I’m ever coming back to Athens, I’m def tempted to stay here again.

Amazing staff, great location
The hostel feels very new/renovated which means everything looks good and is in great condition. The location is under the Acropolis, just metres from the metro station with plenty of shops and restaurants around. The staff were the true standout memory for me. Walter the bartender/receptionist is simply an amazing guy, always happy, open and helpful. Although the beer briefly ran out, he was great in helping to get it back in stock and we were all soon drinking again. Another member of staff who unfortunately I can't remember his name also really helped when my towel, which was drying on a 3rd floor balcony, blew away in the wind and ended up on top of a nearby tree. He helped find a 4-metre pole, went up to the closest balcony, where he was then able to hook it down from the tree. If that is not going 'above and beyond', then I don't know what is.

6/10 Good

not here not there
the hostel is next to many touristic places in the city. I travel alone so even walking at night by myself felt okay. the staff is helpful and friendly. the bed was comfy but is was hot in the rooms- almost like the AC was on heat. the roof top bar and wine bar weren't active to my surprise since the confirmation emails I received encouraged me to pay a visit and got me all excited to do so.. breakfast is basic to say the least. you can hear people in the halls coming back from their time out. the crowd is as expected, all ages, open to socialize and enjoy the time in the city. overall a nice experience although I am not sure I will be back.

Honestly first showing up I had no one besides myself, but as I walked through the doors Athens Backpackers took me in and treated me like family. This place isn’t an hostel it’s a home where you meet so many amazing people. Also Walter the bartender definitely one guy who makes the place the cherry on top.
