Since we were in Athens only one night, our stay in zorbas hotel was really short. But the hostel was very clean and there was free coffee and tea in the morning :) The staff was super friendly and particularly helpful in finding a cheap car rental for the next week! Also it's really close to Victoria metro station and... More

The location is good, just about 50m away from the Victoria metro station, and a short walk from the National Archaeological Museum. I was in a 6-bed dorm with its own toilet/shower, and there was A/C, so the stay was a comfortable one. A/C was particularly important, especially after a long hot day examining the must-see ruins. Only drawback was... More

Stayed at zorbas for two nights as a stop over from Athens to Crete. Perfect for what we needed! The three of us stayed in an 8 person mixed form with ensuite - Newley renovated. Staff where extremely helpful especially in regards to a unsavoury pick pocket situation that we experienced on the train. Very central location which was perfect... More

Centrally located and very easy to get to from the airport by public transport. There are lots of cheap food places nearby. The metro station is on the next street and walking to the Acropolis takes 20 minutes. The beds are comfortable and the bathrooms are clean. Nice place to stay

Super friendly and helpful staff! They were extremely kind. They let us hang out the day we flew out even though we didn't leave until 11 pm! We had a clean bathroom and clean rooms! Its conveniently right outside the Victoria stop on the metro! Overall great experience and I would definitely stay there again!

There is basically no social atmosphere in this hotel, and the inside is dingy. Usually you can trust the staff at hostels for advice, but I wouldn´t suggest that here. The staff gave us terrible advice and on top of that were very rude. There are plenty of other places to stay in Athens, so I really suggest choosing somewhere... More

Zorbas Hostel doesn't look like much from the outside, and it really isn't much on the inside, but still had a great stay. Would this place pass fire code regulations? Probably not. Is it a bit of a sketchy location? Absolutely (but right on the metro line). Is the air quality hazardous to your health? I may now use an... More

Things started out okay at Zorbas. For how much we paid we expected it to be a bit rundown. However we had no idea how staying at one hostel could ruin our entire trip. The day before the ferry to Santorini was canceled due to weather. So the next day we asked the worker at Zorbas to call and make... More

Although this is an average hostel in terms of commodities, the place is central and well located and have a very fair price. We stayed at a mix dorm shared with other 4 person. The room and common spaces were ok, and the staff was very helpful.

Easy to find, 100m just around the corner from the Victoria subway station. Really helpful - hones staff. They don't try to sell you bus, ferry or airplane tickets they are just really honest how to get the best deal (if one is available). Good choice of private or dorm rooms. Its a bit run down - but the sheets... More
