    This hostel is an excellent value and is in a great location. It is a great option for a place to lay your head at night, but its age shows, despite it’s clean, well-kept condition. Expect basic hostel accommodations, a bunk in a shared room, a balcony, and thank heaven – AC! The bar and lounge area downstairs is a good place to hang during the day, and the rooftop bar, with a view of the Acropolis is where you want to be at night, lounging on cushions, sipping your ouzo. Just a few blocks from the heart of Athens, but in a safe, secure neighborhood, it’s close to everywhere you want to go. The staff are friendly and happy to help you plan outings. This hostel also has another extension down the street, with a great bar, fish and chips restaurant and laundromat – what more could you ask for?

    This Hostel is a backpackers paradise because of it’s location, location, location! to literally all that goes on around the Acropolis, and all by foot. It’s a few blocks from Plaka and the main road leading to the Acropolis itself which is perfect for touring all the central hotspots like ancient sites, shops, restaurants, and a super favorite of mine...the outdoor summer theatre Cine Paris in Plaka’s main square. The staff is young and fun to talk with and the breakfast / lounge area next to the lobby makes for socializing just as much as the roof top bar does, which by the way, has a very cool view of Athens and the Acropolis. The building has an older feel to it and I enjoyed the colorful paintings hanging everywhere. The room was spacious with 4 comfortable beds and a common bathroom, very clean, very cool. Wifi is everywhere!

    Athen's backpackers is definitely a top rated youth hostel in the area. To start, the location is really incredible and the hostel is walking distance from everything. We never had to take a cab ride at all. The hostel attracts people from 18-25 mostly and they tend to be pretty social and lively. We met a bunch of our hostel mates during their rooftop happy hour where you can see beautiful views of the Acropolis. It is quite stunning to be able to sip on a cocktail while taking in the beauty of the ancient Acropolis. The hostel was quick to provie Ouzo shots as a welcome treat for its guests. The rooms were clean with comfortable and most importantly, they were quiet during the night. They serve breakfast in the lounge downstairs which also serves as another great hang out spot during the day. I would definitely recommend staying here.
