“Fab!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2013

Stayed one night but wish it had been longer. I was traveling with my 21 year old daughter and it was perfect. We had a one bedroom apartment done up in ikea chic. The staff were fun, friendly and very helpful. Continental breakfast was simple but just what I would eat at home (boiled eggs and rolls, butter jam and coffee and tea). We took the walking tour around neighbourhood and acropolis which was fun and informative. The surrounding neighbourhoods are bustling and teeming with great restaurants. The new acropolis museum is steps away. Inn keepers Daniel and Jilly were WONDERFUL!! I would go back in a heartbeat. Perfect for budget conscious travellers who want more. Can't wait to go back to Athens and Athens Studios!

Clean, and conveniently located near the Acropolis. Very good fish cafe and bars near by and on the property. Great fun place to relax and meet people in the Sports Bar. Staff were very friendly and knowledgeable.

I stayed at Studios in the 4-bed dorms as I was arriving in greece, and it really was one of the better hostel dorms I've stayed in. In-room stove (!) with fridge and tea/coffee are huge to have in a hostel, but Studios also does the more expected things right too. Bar/internet/laundry downstairs, breakfast, and of course the location is hard to beat. I've already stayed here twice, and as certain as I am I'll be back to Greece I'm equally sure I'll be staying at Studios while I'm in Athens.

Room Tip: Make sure to grab one of the dorm rooms with a balcony.

Before we start, I know a thing or two about Athens hostels. Many years ago, I worked on the desk of the (in)famous Festos Hotel in Plaka. Off and on, I have spent 20 years at least in Greece.

As hostels go, this one is a revelation. Clean, cared for and very well run. Constant hot water, fridges in the rooms and even tea and coffee making facilities. Good beds, linen regularly changed and secure lockers for each guest. Friendly and knowledgeable staff who really care and a killer central location just meters from the Metro and the Acropolis for that matter; in a safe and upmarket neighbourhood.

One day, all hostels will be like this.

An in-house laundrette, cafe and bar top things off.

We (3 of us) had reserved a six bedroom mixed dorm but when we checked in only two beds were clean. Without hesitation, they instantly upgraded us to a nice studio with just three beds and a kitchenette without charging us an extra penny. We ended up wanting to extend our stay in Athens so we reserved the room for another night and again they gave us an amazing price for an awesome room! We were so thrilled! After sleeping on overnight trains and on ferries, we were incredibly thankful for their generosity. The staff was so easy to work with and sweet.

We actually came back through Athens a few days later on our way back out of Greece and again, they upgraded us because they were able to. The rooms were extremely clean and new looking. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone! It was a great experience!

The Athens Studios was our start and end accommodation whilst traveling around the Greek Islands!! The location was fabulous, easy to find and has an amazing selection of restaurants just around the corner (Best Moussaka EVER... wish I could remember the name of the place!!).

We stayed in two different 3 bed studio rooms. One was a bit nicer than the other but overall very comfortable and extremely clean!!

Would stay again in a heartbeat!! Do not listen to what anyone says about Athens it is one of my favourite cities!!!!

If you plan to stay there renting one of the studio flats with tv and fridge that's fine. Breakfast is average (bred, butter, jam), bars downstairs are more expensive than average but it doesn't matter because the location is great.
But if you plan to book a bed in one of rooms that is used as a hostel room then you have better options in Athens for this price. As a hostel, Athens Backpackers (belongs to same company) is a better option. Athens Studios doesn't have communal areas except for both bars downstairs. So if you want to sit with your friends you will have to pay for the drinks, you can't just make yourself a tea and chat after a long day.

Room Tip: don't book a bed in a room, book a room. or chose another place.
