I am confused between Soph & Chris Athens Northern Backpackers and AthenStyle, where am I going to be accommodated?
The rooms of Athens Northern Backpackers (Agias Theklas no.12) are located in the building next to the one of AthenStyle (Agias Theklas no.10). Both hostels are run by the same group so they are very integrated. AthenStyle building is where all facilities are located, including reception, bar, breakfast, laundry etc.

Is breakfast available? What do we get?
Breakfast is served daily from 8am to 10 am at AthenStyle lounge and includes freshly baked bread, butter and jam, and hot drinks! It costs 4 euro per person per night.

Is there a kitchen for guests? use?
Yes, you can use the kitchen at AthenStyle daily from 10am to 9 pm. Please keep kitchen clean and wash your dishes as soon as you are finished. Anyway, Athens is also a very cheap city to eat out. Taste great GYROS & SOUBLAKIA for 1,80 Euro, you?ll love it!

No, we provide with anything you may need- sheets, blankets, pillow cases...- and everything is included in the price of the bed. If you would like you can also rent one of our towels for a small fee (2euro).

What time is check-in/check-out? Do you have a luggage deposit?
You can check in after 2 pm every day and you have to leave before 10 am on the day of check-out. At check out you should return the key to get your deposit back and any towel rented.

Which is the closest subway station?

Is there a private bathroom? Or is it shared?

Where is your place located within Athens?
We have chosen the real heart of the city, a short walk from the Ancient Agora and the Acropolis, finding the perfect location between the colorful Monastiraki, home to the Athens Flea Market and the unique neighborhood of ?Psyri? heart of Athens nightlife and a new artistic community that has shaped its studios amidst the food market, small wholesales shops of domestic products, theatres and old little stores.

Will there be a curfew? For example, would it be alright with you if we came back very late one night - say 2:00am? - We are young travellers, and so we would like to party in Athens.

Hopefully this is ok.

Athens is a party town so you'd better not miss the fun! Our rooftop bar closes at midnight but You'll have your keys for the night and we are located in a very lively area. The only rule is not to disturb your room-mates late at night when you come back...
