What backpackers say

"If your looking for a good time and a place to meet and drink with other backpackers, and a great location, then this is the place to go to" - Google

"Loved my stay at Athens Backpackers! It’s central, safe, has a great vibe, clean and modern. There are lockers in the room big enough to fit a large suitcase, there are charging ports and lights next to each bed and no keys required - rooms are locked with a code (this is a game changer!). The staff are also extremely accommodating and friendly, and the rooftop bar is a great place to meet people and see the city. The breakfasts are also delicious! Highly recommend 👏" - Google
