The location is good, near the centre and Omonia. It is not very clean... wifi works only in common areas. There is no elevator... 4 floors with the suitcases! Staff is friendly We were lucky because we had a 4 bed room and the bathroom was private for the 4 of us. The street is not very safe but we... More

Stayed four nights in a four person dorm. You get a bed, clean bathrooms and showers, a rooftop terrace and the reception sells beer. What more do you need from a hostel? The system with the keys was a bit weird but actually quite efficient. You never have to worry about losing your key!

The hostel is what you pay for. It's in an ideal location and isn't expensive although the rooms are simple and sometimes the air con didn't work. Despite this I enjoyed my stay here and would recommend it to anyone looking for convenient and cheap shelter.

I stayed at Hostel Zeus twice. The first time I shared a double private with my boyfriend and the second time we stayed in a shared dorm. We actually stayed in the room pictured and it's not as bad as it looks. I read some of the reviews before staying here and was EXTREMELY concerned that I had booked this... More

The toilet is really kept in dirty state, the design of toilet is really bad as well. No elevator, very shabby. Wifi is really weak and you have to walk down to Lv 2 to catch. I won't suggest this as a place even for backpackers.

An extremely simple hostel, wihtout any kind of extra luxury, but good nonetheless. It was just five minutes away from the Monastiraki station and a really nice square with lots of shops, restaurants and night life. It was also close to the Acropolis and you could easily go around walking. The hostel was cleaned daily and I didn't feel irked... More

Hostel Zeus is awesome because: a) it is located in the centre of Athens, nearby there are many shops, bars, restaurants and everything you may need, it's close from the airport to the metro station (MONASTIRAKI) and to the bus station (SYNTAGMA) b) the stuff is super and helpful, you may ask about anything and they will help you, like...

We only chose the place as it had good price and location. Down sides: no wifi in rooms, dingy bathroom and shower facilities and rain made it inside from the roof to the steps. Staff was nice. Additional commission if paying by card.

If you have the money to splash there's plenty of high quality hotels around the city which are centrally located but If you are on a budget or almost out of money as I was during most of my visits to Athens then I can make you aware of Hostel Zeus. Hostel Zeus is probably the cheapest hostel I've found... More

We stayed here for 3 nights (6-9 march'15) and managed to check in 1hr before the agreed time so it was a good start. The room was clean, had air con which we didn't use (you have to ask for the remote control @ the reception, free of cost), towels are also free of cost but you have to ask... More

Staying in Omonia

Neighborhood Profile
Omonia
Omonia Square is as plain in appearance as Syntagma is grand. Surrounded largely by functional blocks from the 1950s and 60s and no longer boasting its underground stalls, the square is now mostly frequented by immigrants and bargain shoppers. The most rewarding area to explore is to the south. Set off down Athinas Street, with the Acropolis gradually coming into focus in the distance, and you will get a sense of old commercial Athens, especially at the picturesque meat, fish and vegetable markets some way beyond the City Hall. The blocks to the west of Athinas are home to many Chinese and South Asian traders, adding a multicultural atmosphere to what was until the late 1990s a very homogenous society.
