Accommodation at Hostel Zeus is very basic, and it can get a bit cold at night, but the price is unbeatable. More importantly, the hostel is located just a few blocks from Monostraki Square, a central social area in the city just beneath the Acropolis and no more than 10 minutes walk from all the major tourist destinations.

You definetely get what you pay for. The hotel is not luxury or super clean but for that price we couldn't have asked for more. Position is amazing. Receptionist are kind and always ready to help. Consider it as a place where to go back only for sleeping.

We arrived very late in Athens and needed a place to sleep in order to take the train the next morning to Thessaloniki. We arrived around midnight and had booked the room on the same day. This already caused some confusion at the check-in as the receptionist had to find our reservation first, it took him 10 minutes, as in... More

We spent one night in the double ROOM 24 (30€), located on the top floor, just in front of the non existant "bar" (merely a crapy terrasse). This room was noisy, dirty and unconfortable: - disgusting spots on the walls (coffe, coke or.... We didn't want to know...) - dreadfull view on the "court yard" (That can't be described. You...

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

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
