This hostel is great - for 12 euros a night I was able to go on a very good free walking tour hosted by George and the hostel organised for me to go on a day excursion to Delphi! I stayed in a female dorm which was fine, the decor of the place is great and I loved that each... More

So you people read the reviews and complaints - well that's all true to a certain extend. What's true - no locker, showers were so so and there's extra fee for blanket and also air conditioning What's not true - the showers worked, the doors lockable and the lights are all working However I stayed at first floor so it's...

Good location, good prices, and interesting decor. The 24-hour reception was also handy. The room itself was clean and big (I stayed at the basic 4-bed dorm), and the prices dirt cheap. However, the big letdown was definitely the toilets and bathrooms. There were two showers in on my floor - one had no lock and the door constantly swings... More

Hostel Zeus was located in a very rough neighborhood. Our tour group wouldn't even pick us up there. Hostel guests have to pay $1 for sheets and $4 to use the air conditioner. They also charge an extra 5% for using your credit card and had didn't have lockers in the room. They did have an option to leave your... More

I paid a lower price for a better place in Santorini which had even private bathroom and kitchen. I am completely dissapointed of this hotel, I expected something different because of the photos. Also the location is not the best since the area around is a little depressed

The staff is the most helpful in all of Athens! They were very kind and patient with me on my first trip to Athens. Not to mention the location is amazing. I will definitely be staying here again--the best deal in Athens!

I stayed there 2 nights for 16 euros, it was quite cheap! The location was not far from city center and subway station(though sometimes it goes on strike). Free wifi in lobby and every floor(it didn't work well in the room). And the staff was helpful when I asked them the information about attractions, pretty impressive. But the cleanliness of... More

It's a very basic hostel, not a hotel. It's a decently clean place to lay your head at night. After some mix up with my tour schedule the staff was incredibly helpful with helping find cool things to do as well with complete directions! It's a cheap room with a great staff. As a solo female traveler I felt safe... More

This hostel definitely was the worst on our Grecian adventure. We went here in May 2011. There was blood on the walls in the washrooms, the showers were disgusting, the rooms themselves stank, the beds were uncomfortable, and it was a terrible location.

I stayed here because a friend recommended the place (as she knew the staff) and because it was very cheap. However, it was extremely difficult to find as the instructions weren't as clear-cut as they seemed, and the area surrounding the place was all around sketchy. I was a female solo traveller and was constantly getting heckled whenever I walked... More
