Poor wifi, skeezy bartenders and very difficult to get into our room with the key. Other than that it was good and there were lots of free welcome shots and free computer use. Great for the price and excellent location near the subway. Was a fun time.

Zorbas Hotel was around 8 euros a night, so you get what you pay for. The hotel was somewhat clean, however there were no lockers. They have two computers with free internet, as well as free wifi. There's also a bar in the hotel. It's a good way to save money for a short stay in Athens.

Zorbas staff were friendly and kind. We're near by the Victoria Garden metro and about 20min walk to Acropolis. The area has plenty of food options as well. Athens has a lot of graffiti and the streets are pretty empty at night, but I never felt unsafe. We stayed in a private queen sized room with our private bathroom. Wifi... More

Having stayed in many other hostels before, this one really "takes the cake". I seldom give bad reviews but this is really terrible. Wifi is almost non-exsistent even in the lobby (or bar), rooms were old and smelly (maybe not the sole fault of hostel) and worse of all - total lack of plugs in the room (only 2 available... More
