Daniel the manager literally lies about his staffs when I made a complaint and refused to take responsibility for their dishonesty and shortcomings! Unbelievably unprofessional and repugnance. They always blame their guests when things go sideways. Apologising is the last thing they do. Do not stay here. There are many other nice hostels here but this is Not it!
Great Location, right near some amazing attractions and only 5-10 minute walk from the Acropolis! (€30 for the whole thing!) Rooftop bar was amazing, lively atmosphere and some of the best mojitos we’ve had make by Nikolas! only thing is our room did not have aircon, so unfortunately we did not sleep very comfortably- however we where only there for one night so cannot complain. When we first arrived there is no dedicated ‘reception’ there was a man at the bar who did not great us, we had to go over to him to ask what to do. We arrived 1 hour earlier for check in and usually this is fine with most places however you cannot check in earlier here. As we checked in early there was a dedicated place for us to leave our bags, not locked away though. Once we checked in we made our way to our room and had to overcome the lift… it’s big enough to fit 2 people in… and that’s it. The floor moves when you step in and it doesn’t always take you to the correct floor when you press the floor button.…
Here again to start my journey. I arrived very late, but after checkin I went to the roof bar and within minutes I found new friends from all over the world, all languages. After killing some vodka all together from te table we left to find a club. We did not found because we were guided by some girls and google maps. At syntagma I found some place and later we went to a club, but it was not soo the music I like. The breakfast is much better than even in hotels.
This is the hostel to be! The location is perfect, everything in the heart of Athens is within a walkable distance. A walking tour is provided at 10am daily by the amazing Andrew, where you will be given a historical/mythical tour and advice on the best sites and quality food. I stayed in a 6 room female only dorm. Now my only negative comment is that it was freezing up there at night, however once mentioned to staff I was provided with extra blankets. My room was clean with plenty of storage space for a large backpack. Breakfast has something suitable for everyone, fruit, eggs, bread and cereal. The staff are what make this hostel unique. Walter and Costa are the barman from heaven and never fail to make happy hour enjoyable for all. Steph and her new staff member keep things going during the day, able to answer every question from recommendations etc The vibe of the hostel ultimately is what you make it but has everything for you to have a brilliant time and make loads of travel buddies. Activities are listed on the walls to inform guests. The cleaning staff are so kind and helpful! The roof top view is *chefs kisses* Cheap and cheerful! Thank you Athens Backpackers!…
The bar was fun, good food options and recommendations, great location, roof deck...Just book and be happy...And take the walking tour...Just ask the front desk about it, it was fun. I honestly really thought this place was one of the best hostels I've stayed at worldwide, and at a fraction of the cost of some more well known places that didn't deliver.
I have stayed on numerous occasions in this hostel and it’s not worth the grievances. The night staff- Walter with one of his Juvenile friend who smokes weed and drinks heavily starts to spread malicious and false rumours about me just because they cannot get along with me. The night staff Walter even has the audacity to continue his irritating tirade outside his workplace! Very unprofessional and he made it very personal. He misconstrued my soft demeanour as weakness. Do Not Stay Here! Definitely not worth the grievances! Very unprofessional and immature! There are many nice hostels in Athens but this is definitely NOT IT!
I when there on my arrival in Athens and also came back for another night during my trip for a total of 3 nights. I was in a room for 6 persons, but there was only 4 lockers (standard size) for the luggage ! The 2 others was thin and under the bed so even my camera, out of its bag, was fitting in it ! In the bathroom, when you take your shower, all the floor gets wet, slippery and after, dirty. No carpet on the floor. Breakfast is included BUT you have to walk 300 meters to get it. You can't even get a coffee there. The staff is friendly and the location is perfect for the site seeing and to get the metro.
One of the best hostels I have stayed in. The rooms are super clean and very good for the price, staff is extra helpful and friendly and the location is perfect, you can walk to the main attractions. The bar is the perfect place for solo travelers to meet other people.
Really enjoyed staying here. The facilities were super clean and the staff was amazing. The location is prime too near stores and the metro station. They have a rooftop bar, and just a couple minutes have a laundry place and a restaurant. Overall a great experience
This place is really cool. I first booked for 2 nights and then extended for 3 more nights. The place is clean and welcoming. The staff is great. It is so inexpensive and on top of that they provide free breakfast. I really wish I can stay longer but need to get back to work. I was also doing ZOOM meetings for my work, and there is an awesome cafe called PAIR very close to this hostel. The cafe staff is very welcoming and they made sure that I had no disturbance during my Zoom calls. Will highly recommend this hostel and nearby PAIR CAFE
