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

We had our own room. Lighting in room was quite poor and windows cannot be opened. Really wanted to air the room but couldnt. Air conditioning costs extra 4 euros a night. Bed is a good size but creaks a lot so my fiance and I would wake up whenever the other person moves in bed. If you want a... More

Stayed here for two nights in October. The rooms where clean which was good because the toilets and showers were pretty gross. Also the lack of safes or lockers for valuables in dorms isn't really good. I must say that the best thing about this hostel was the walking tour from English George. So knowledgable and such a funny genuine... More

Me and my friend (both females) stayed here at the end of August/beginning of September... we were meant to stay for 2 nights but after a bit of an error with getting to our next destination, ended up staying for 5. All the staff made us feel completely welcome, we spent 2 nights in a double room and 3 nights... More

We just wanted to leave a review to say how great the walking tour was. Our guide, British George was very knowledgeable and friendly. He gave us lots of useful advice about things to do and how to get around. It is the best walking tour we have done so far in Europe and we would highly recommend it. The... More

Hostel Zeus is one of the cheapest hostels in Athens and for the price, it really is okay. The toilets and showers weren't the best, but nothing too bad to complain about. Wifi is available on the bottom floors. You have to pay extra for AC and sheets, but not a lot. Do the free walking tour, the guide George... More

Amazing location - only 6 min walking distance from Monastiraki station, and Acropolis. Very friendly staff - in fact I made friends with them all: Alex and Gerald. Free walking tour guide (this is a +)! The guide, George, is such a nice guy I highly recommend going on a walking tour with him! Music can be laud at night... More

I always start with a review of the directions that the hostel give to find the place, and this hostel needs to change their description of how to find it. You will get to the main city square no problem, but from here they become vague. They say 'walk a few minutes' down the main street, turn right, then walk... More
