It was so nice to sit back, relax and clink beers with other travellers. We're in the Land of the Gods, with a great view of the Acropolis during Happy Hour!
The hostel is a 2-minute walk to the metro, which is just across this awesome place selling cheap, delicious gyro and souvlaki (highly recommended by the bartender!). It is in a great location within walking distance of major sights.
I stayed in a 6-bed female dorm, which was very spacious and had enough space for luggage. There was an extra sink outside the bathroom, lockers for valuables, and swipe cards for room security. It was also a relief that they have a lift!
I would have given this place five stars for being an example of what a great hostel is, if not for one thing - their breakfast. Toast, boiled egg and cheap instant coffee everyday just dampen the lively spirit. Surely they can add some zest to breakfast?
Overall, Athens Backpackers is a great place to stay and I would recommend this to others too.
