      This place is pretty great. It is absolutely tiny, but still great. Myself and five other guys are all staying in one room. Our bedroom has 6 bunk beds. Laying down, my head hits the headboard and my feet hang off the end, but I'm in Athens, so who can complain?! The shower is so small that I fell out of it when I took a step backwards this morning, but again, there is hot water and I'm clean, so no complaints here!

      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.

      Day 2 – Athens

      To bed by 9:00 p.m. on Wednesday in order to be up and ready for our early morning flight. So here is how that really worked out. At 9:45 p.m. my phone rang. Now we aren't using our phone for regular calling and texting – it is just too expensive. So we have Apps for that. But my regular phone rang and woke me …

      How do you describe a different country? It's completely new. Not a new state. Not a new place to eat. It is completely new and incomparable, but I will do my best!

      Last night after about 35 hours of travel I arrived in Athens. That's when it hit me that I was across the world. Every sign was in Greek and looking around I realized that …

      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 …
