There is nothing wrong with this place but it is living on past fame. City Circus was a MUCH better hostel, but the location of Athens Backpackers is hard to beat. The two males at reception were friendly and great but the female was not.
SO as you do after A-Levels me and a girlfriend from school decided to go travelling. As we were short on time and shorter on money we decided to spend a whole week in the city of Athens.

Named after the well-preserved Thission (ancient temple of Hephaestus), Thissio is blessed with a small wooded park and some less frenetic streets that offer numerous quieter places to stay and eat. Largely pedestrianised Apostolou Pavlou Street runs between the Acropolis and forested Filopappou Hill, well worth climbing for more great panoramas, until it merges with Dionysiou Areopagitou Street. This leads to the
up-and-coming area of Makriyanni, whose centrepiece is the magnificent new Acropolis Museum. Opposite the museum is the entrance to the southern slopes of the Acropolis, while the eponymous metro station nearby is at the top of Makriyanni Street, another strip of touristic cafés and restaurants.
