Lonely Planet review
Run by the folk from Athens Backpackers, this place was just gearing up for opening at the time of research. These relaxed apartments promise to be an interesting option, particularly for groups of three or four travelling together.
These apartments are spacious, and have an open-plan, equipped kitchenette, a colourful bathroom, and a lounge area with shared balcony. The bedroom has either two beds or four bunk berths, making it a well-priced alternative to dormitory living. The apartments have little luxuries like LCD TVs with satellite channels and generally feel modern and stylish. On the top floor, the balconies are substantially larger, and there's a Parthenon view from one of these 'penthouse' apartments (which cost extra). This has the potential to become quite a self-contained travellers' hang-out, with a small sports bar planned for downstairs, as well as Internet and laundry facilities in the pipeline. It's in a good residential area very close to Plaka and the Acropolis and handy to the metro. At time of writing, reception was at Athens Backpackers at 12 Makri St, a few minutes away.
Our independent authors have visited Athens Studios and selected this as one of our recommended hostels in Athens.
