I can't thank the two awesome reception lads enough for such a great stay in Athens. They're very dedicated guys and made my time there so much better. The hostel is great with excellent facilities and is certainly very cheap - but I felt like I got more than I paid for. Thanks again Team Zorbas!

Zorba's Hotel at Victoria Square is all you might expect of a hostel. Clean dormitory beds, upper and lower, air-conditioning at the touch of a button. Downstairs a limited common kitchen with fridge (no cooking), free tea or coffee and biscuit from 7 to 10am. in an area with 4 tables and access to a back yard enclosed by neighbouring... More

We stayed in Zorbas for 3 nights, and it was a perfect location for us, since we were on a budget. The location is very convenient, since there is a metro station less than 60 meters away. Some reviews on here claim that it's located in a bad area, but we (3 girls) had no problem getting around. But you... More

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
