Liked: Free wifi, free breakfast, good location, rooftop bar

Disliked: Reception staff largely unhelpful - not friendly really. Did not provide map or any info. I arrived and it was "check ins not til 2, you can leave your bag over there" and that was it. Had to ask multiple times for toilet paper to be restocked. Bathrooms flood as showers poorly designed- no floor mat. Towels not included in cost. No pub crawls or events really organized by hostel. Breakfast was below average - would benefit from a sandwich press/toaster and some cereal- and proper milk!!

Liked: Location was ideal.

Disliked: Internet was non existent, and the location was misleading. This was not Athens Backpackers, but Athens Studios.

Liked: The location was perfect (right next to Acropolis), the friendliness of the staff, safety. Events that they do to let you get to know ppl staying at the hostel is great. We took a room for 6 ppl which had its own bathroom, it was good and had 2 balconies. The rooftop is great and had a beautiful view of the Acropolis. The breakfast consisted of an egg or 2 and some cucumbers and tomatoes with bread which was filling. recommend this property for solo travelers and friends

Disliked: They didnt come and clean the room everyday which became a little of a mess

Liked: The dorm rooms in Athens Studios are clean and very spacious. Mine had a little kitchenette, free instant coffee and tea and a small balcony, But the best part of the room is the well functioning airconditioning (it was 39C in Athens when I visited). The beds are comfy.

Disliked: The staff are professional and polite, but no more than that. A little bit of a more personal and friendly approach would have been nice. If your staying in Athens Studios you have your breakfast in the sports bar / fish and chips shop next door. I found the breakfast hours (between 07:30 and 09:30) a bit on the short side.
