Good hostel with helpful staff! Very close to acropolis, which is only a 30mins walk. Close to a grocery store and not to mention it's only few steps away from a metro station! Affordable. Has free computers to use and offers in-house laundry service for 7euros

The location is awesome if you need to go... More

The staff were exceptionally friendly and the location was close to many things. A bus tour was right down the road and you can tour the city for 15 euro. Everything was clean, plus free coffee, tea, and cookies in the mornings.

I needed a place to stay for a long layover. This was a great place to stay because the check in was quick and easy, the host were accommodating, I could walk to the acropolis, and there was a lot of places to eat and socialize. I stayed in a 4 bed mixed dormitory. It was comfortable but a little... More

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!

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
