A hostel trying to be a hotel but failing at both. The room (6 bed) was small and crowded. The beds quite unstable and the private bathroom quite unfresh. However, walking distance from train station Larissa, and the staff kindly accepted a check in at half past twelve AM.

The people at the reception were friendly and very helpful. It's quite a budget place to stay, simple, nothing special. I stayed there for one night. They also have space to keep your luggage after you check out and wi-fi free to use. It's in the centre, convenient location to use the metro and there's chance to meet other travelers.

As backpackers we couldn't have wished for more. Easy to get to from the airport via the metro then two minute walk. The room we had was simple but was the cheapest out of the four major city's we had recently visited. Zorbas is very central and there are some lovely cafes across the road that do a great breakfast.... More

We stayed here for three nights and had our own room with bathroom which was nice. The room had ac which made it comfortable to come back to. The kitchen was not good (only had a fridge and microwave). People stole our food so I wouldn't recommend leaving anything in the fridge. The location is about a 25 minute walk... More

The location is pretty good, the rooms are decent for the price you pay, wifi works and everyone is friendly. We only stayed here for a night but two days in Athens is plenty. Spend your time on the islands instead.

We stayed here a week on our travels, which I think was the first mistake. 3 days in this hostel & Athens is plenty. The staff were lovely and ways willing to help or even just a chat. Genuinely seemed to care about your well being which was nice. The hostel is in a good location, close to a couple... More

Non-existent internet, no smoke alarms in some rooms, horrid, staircase is about to fall apart to the top rooms, runs out of hot water for showers, kitchen non existent, some doors not safe, smells bad, unsafe wiring, weak bunk beds, no barriers on top bed, disgusting bathrooms, only pros are the staff and location.

Zorbas Hostel is certainly worth the 7.50 Euros in winter. The beds, blankets, pillows, washrooms, showers, and common area are all decent, especially considering the low cost. The rooms are very clean but get a bit cold at night in the winter, so you might have to ask for a second blanket. Staff is friendly and helpful, and nearby Victoria... More

As a college student studying abroad this was the perfect place to stay!! My girlfriends and I felt safe staying in this hostel, we had our own bathroom and the staff was very friendly and helpful!! There is free wifi and they also have two computers you can use for free with internet access. We would definitely stay here again!!!... More

This is not a Hotel, but a Hostel very old and messy. The people isn't friendly and for me the big problem was when I went to use the kitchen doesn't have more than one glass. Me and my friend had to share one glass. I don't recommend this place to anyone.
