SO as you do after A-Levels me and a girlfriend from school decided to go travelling. As we were short on time and shorter on money we decided to spend a whole week in the city of Athens. The backpackers was more than we had hoped for. It was a fraction of the cost of the local hotels and as... More

There a rooftop bar that had an amazing view of the acropolis. The FIFA game greece vs. Costa Rica was on that night which created one hell of an atmosphere. It's location... More

AB was the last place we stayed before heading home to the States. It is in a very accessible location and has an amazing view of the Acropolis from the roof bar, especially at night. The Parthenon was a few minute walk, as well as other sights. The staff know their city very well and give detailed directions. They also... More

Perfect location, great staff. Met some lovely people there and the dorm rooms were nice and clean. Had great rooftop bar with amazing view and you get a free ouzo shot, nice way to meet people. The location was probably the best bit about it, such a nice area and so close to many attractions.

I found the staff very helpful and the rooms were clean and spacious. The roof terrace bar is great for socialising and has great views. The location of the hostel... More

Came in for 4 days, had a studio booked, perfect size for two people, clean, bright, hot water and fairly comfortable bed. But it wasn't the room that make this stay excellent, the employees here are exceptional and go above and beyond, your bartenders deserve raises even with all the tips i was leaving. The location is perfect and the... More

This hostel is outstanding. Great location, fantastic rooftop bar, lovely staff, fab facilities, clean and great value for money. Wifi is also outstanding. We spent 2 nights in the hostel and 1 night in the studios down the road when they couldn't fit us into the hostel - so helpful! Walking tour is great, only 6 euro to see everything.... More

I liked this hostel because it was very social. They have a rooftop bar and offer a restaurant and bar at their other location a few blocks away. It is near the metro and steps from the Acropolis. The staff is friendly and they offer some walking tours The rooms and bathrooms are basic, the wifi is strong in all... More
