Location is perfect, could be reached in five minutes from Metro by walking. Staff speaks great English and is very resourceful. They have people to do the night shift. I asked them about bus ticket past the midnight and receptionist still nicely replied me. Wifi connection is strong, the hostel have bar, coffee shop and laundry place. Bed is quite cozy. Room is in a reasonable size.
The bathroom still could be cleaner. Facility arrangement is weird. For example, in my room, the toilet was stuck into a small space between wall and the shower place, leaving the users no room to put their legs. The room and the bathroom are quite messy. Although this is predictable, since the room hosts backpackers from all over the world. However I've stay in some hostel that could still find a way to keep the room in a decent appearance.
Backpackers was really cool - common area, kitchen, large rooms, balcony and roof top
I was originally booked into the (more expensive) studio section. There you had 6 bed crammed into a studio apartment and the smell of cooking as it is done in the room. There is no common area. I walked straight out and asked if I could move. If you're in a Dorm make sure you're in the Backpackers!
- location - facilities (apartment was clean and fully equipped for a short stay)
- Internet connection was slow and unreliable - cleaning staff knocked on our door a number of times starting just before 10 on checkout even though we had requested late checkout, rolled her eyes at us when we gave her this information - safety: hostel probably shouldn't advertise with "free" luggage storage on day of departure as it is literally open to everyone to grab and go, you will need to pay 3 Euros to store safely - breakfast was very simply, yet that's ok but had to pay to replace "breakfast" with a bowl of cereals which literally would not have cost them anything to exchange
Location and the appartment we stayed was really good.
Breakfast is ok,
Very good hostel with interesting guests and nice stuff. Rooftop bar with good view to Acropolis. Many attractions in sport bar and near the hostel. Tours around monuments. I can really recommend this place.
Small elevator. Very basic breakfast (eggs, bread and jam).
Location is perfect , pice, cleaning , staff, heating and wifi very satisfied
I can hear noise in room, when speaking on step or front of door, i can hear clearly voice and steps sound in room
Actually backbackers have two locations. They are 200meters apart and both are near acropolis.
Couldn't be closer to the Acropolis area. Request for a shifting check-out got granted.
great location (walking distance from museum and antique riuns; close to good restaurants); comfortable studio (clean room, well equipped kitchen); air condition; sound proof windows;
no parking place (it's really hard to find free place on the street near building); small breakfast (but if you play a little more you can get good stuff)
The proximity to the Akropolis, Akropolis Museum, Metro and Zeus temple makes it attractive. The room itself is average.
The cover of the wastewater outlet was loose. So everytime you entered the bathroom you had to whatch out not to step into the dirty water. There is only 1 hairdryer for the whole house!!! You get a poor breakfast including coffee, but there is nothing to drink for the Kids included. We had to claim it with the Management. Athens. The motivation of the staff to provide good customer service is also improvable. They are kind but not proactive. Total: the price is maybe slightly too high compared to the competition.
Excellent location and friendly staff
Great location, friendly staff very convenient facilities. Great value for money.
Elevator is really small, but hey, they have one! (unlike other places in Europe).
Perfect location! Acropolis was just 2 mins away, and even the metro stations were. The restaurants around were really very very close! Brilliant place, especially for youngsters. The Sports Bar used to become alive at night, and seemed very lively and fun! Nice way to interact with other people living in the hotel. The staff were really very cooperative, courteous and helpful!
Breakfast option was just really very limited!
The stairs that need to climb to get the room
the hostel is not far away from the subway station
the drunk roommate vomited in midnight and left a lot of vomitus in my shoes, so disgusting
Central location, great vibe. Hostel was clean. Staff friendly.
Location and space excellent. Staff pleasant and helpful.
We could hear noise outside at night from bar next door. Few pots to cook with and no dish towels.
modern, clean and exactly like the photos. location was perfect and staff were helpful.
could hear noise in the hallway easily but mostly people were quiet after 11pm. wifi was average, same with the included breakfast (but hey it was free!).
Had a top floor apartment with 2 balconies and amazing views. Really huge, modern place, especially for the price. Perfect location, nice staff, would totally stay here again.
The shower is just a shower head in the bathroom, you have to squeegee the floor when you're done. Not a huge deal and kind of fun/unique, but for more than a few days it might get annoying.
location, breakfast, clean rooms, the staff
The location is quite good where you can just walk to Acropolis and see most sites. The single room and double room at studio are with good facilities and guide big.
The 3people room is so small, far smaller than the size claimed, even hard to open suitcase, and no place to hang clothes. And we were not informed that they don't provide new towels everyday~
The location was great, just a block or two away from a lot of things. The beds were fine for sleeping
This is not a quiet hostel, so if you want to sleep before 2am good luck. There is also only 1 bathroom for every ~15 people, so you have to time that carefully to get in. There was also no toilet paper in the bathroom and when beer was spilled in the hall it took forever to have it cleaned up so there was a faint smell the whole night.
Clean, spacious, 2 room suite with wi-fi and elevator. And quiet too and free continental breakfast and a walking tour for 6 euros. Close to the Acropolis Museam entry and across from that, a zillion wonderful outside eateries, my favorite was Liondi's, but the cafe across from Athens Backpackers was very good. The lady makes great pastitsio. Very good value for the money.
Nothing. This place is the total opposite of the Travel and Stay apartment we rented from you (32 Vicola della grotto) which I wrote to you. No elevator on the 6th floor! You gotta be kidding, not for older couples - try getting your luggage down all those steps. Ugh.
Serviço do café da manhã
Breakfast was bread and egg only
