      Great location, within walking distance of so many awesome restaurants, shops, and historical sites! The staff have been awesome, place is clean and has a good vibe. I won't get a chance to enjoy the breakfast that is included so I can't say much about that, but all in all this place is great and getting here was a piece of cake.

      Cool bar too - if Mr and Mrs B were 20 years younger and had no little B's we would have spent a few hours there! But Sprite, ice tea and the complementary Ouzo was great too!

      Great location, helpful staff, good bed and breaky included - can't go wrong! The price at 15.00 only resembles where you are..Athens! As the facilities are not top notch. Older crew generally when we were there...not sure if this is usual or just in off season..

      Enjoyed our stay at Backpackers. Place was clean, easy and friendly. The showers sucked (stayed there twice, two different rooms, sucked both times) but everyone in the shared rooms and in the roof top bar were extremely friendly. there was a taxi strike (big surprise) and the staff at backpacjers had organized to drive a bunch of us to the port to catch our ferry oin the morning. Totally made up for the shitty showers. Great location too. Recommended for sure.

      After the life altering trip up North I was back in Athens for the third time with no complaints whatsoever given how much I had been enjoying myself, and had no intentions of going elsewhere for my final three days in Greece. On my arrival back into the city I waited for Akis to finish work and we had a delicious meal around the corner again (this …

      After my little getaway in the Peloponnese it was back to Athens on a bus. The weather had vastly improved and I was able to see the beautiful orange tree laiden countryside and a great glimpse of the grand Corinth canal on my way through. On my arrival back in the city I went to visit my new found friend Akis in Coffee World after dumping my bags …

      I arrived in Athens easily. This time I was mentally prepared for the simple process of boarding a plane, despite leaving my phone in customs briefly on the way through - just to test those dishonest people out there who much to my delight, chose not to steal my only form of communication and photos. Landing in Athens was a dream. Finally an …

      With our big day of travel behind us, we disembarked our bus in Athens ready to navigate another foreign metro line. As we walked through the busy bus station, I was trying my luck looking for wifi and was pleasantly surprised when I got a free connection. We did a quick hunt on the maps for our location and for the location of the closest metro …
