Value for money
Show reviews from:
like the location,,,near the center
they should change the beddings everyday!
WiFi, clean room, good location, helpful reception, can explain everything you want, price is good. Place for young people who wants to save money and have fun.
Noisy neighbours from France made a party right in the nearest room. Reception couldn't do anything although we complained two times!
- Great location - Nice personnel - Fun roommates from all over the world - Breakfast
- Roommates can be too fun (noisy) at night
Good staff, excellent location, decent apartment worth the price
Bad internet connection, or no connection at all, only one set towels in 3 days
The staff was friendly, guests the kind you like to meet on the travel
The owner Nick is a very cool guy. One of the employees James said Nick will roll up his sleeves and do any job needed. That shows because things are grey right from the top all the way down! That contributes to the other already excellent things mentioned above to make a super experience! And it's a great place to meet wonderful people!!! Will come again next time I'm in athens.
I really need to use wifi to stay in touch back home, and with people I've just met!! so improving that would really help. It's a challenge to set up wifi across all those buildings and with so many people spending hours on the network, so I don't envy the IT staff!
Kitchen and bathroom facilities
The location was great, just a 2min walk to beautiful cafes and Plaka. Bar and laundromat 2 shops down
We booked in to the backpackers but stayed at studio, my review is for studios. Free brekfast wasn't really worth it. Especially woth amazing restaurants down the road
Location (close to the Acropoli metro station); Apartment was quite big and had pretty nice bedroom. Although we was in the center of the city it was quiet, so there was no problem with sleeping.
We had reservation at Athens Backpackers. Because of the renovation we were moved to Athens Studio, not far away from the primary location. Would be nice if we could have get this information before knocking on the doors of Athens Backpackers. We had to leave early in the morning, before breakfast. Man at the reception desk told us to ask for breakfast box in bar next door, which was used as guesthouse's restaurant. Unfortunately they told us, that the only person who can take care of that was the man, who prepare breakfast and he will arrive at the bar after our check-out, so we were left with nothing.
location of this hotel is very good, near acropoli, staff is nice, the price is very good
the breakfast is too easy
Breakfast was horrible Boil egg bread deffrosted still uncook 2 little finger size fetta 2 slice tomato verry greedy on breakfast !!
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!
