I enjoyed my stay at zorbas and the staff were all friendly.. i got a mixed bedroom for 4 people and the room was sweet with a private bathroom.

Zorbas is located in victoria square, which is about a 15 minute walk to the bottom of the acroplois. If you dont mind walking its in a fine location (I didnt mind it at all). One key per room which is left at the desk. Please note that YOU DO NOT RECIEVE A BLANKET OR TOWEL. Staff were nice. Air con in dorms worked well.

Not a great location. Have to pay extra for a sheet! Cramped dorm rooms with a rubbish bathroom

Room door and bathroom door wouldn't lock. Two metro stops away from the main square, too far too walk. It was a bed to sleep, nothing more. Had to buy a sheet for 1 euro, which was annoying, but AC worked well. Very cheap place to stay though, gotta love the price!

The staff at this place are lovely and so helpful but you do get what you pay for in terns of the rooms. The lock was broken on our door, the bathroom didn't have a door handle or a lock, the walls were rotten so all sound, movement and smell travelled through them. As a result our entire room smelt of cigarettes the whole time.

It's a great hostel - value for $, clean and quiet. Everyone's pretty friendly too.

Not spectacular but with everything you need if you are only looking for a place to sleep.

Security is a bit of an issue. There is only one key per dorm, which needs to be left with reception whenever you leave. There are also no lockers in the rooms. There's a a bit of a drainage issue, the floor of our bathroom was constantly wet for the extent of our stay. The hostel is pretty close to everything, which is a plus. Easy to get to the port and the airport. Wifi is good.

Beds where VERY close together you had to step on someone on the bottom bunk To get to your top one! The bathroom was full of ants! Location was decent, felt like a fairly safe area. Small but friendly bar downstairs, nice staff. Overall average

The location of hostel is very convenient and the place is also easy to find. Hostel was not as clean as I expected but the staff was nice. Hostel has a bar downstairs and that was the best part of the hostel! The bartender took us to see the nightclubs of Athens and that was great! :)

Nice place in a good location. Not too far from acropolis. Clean beds and cool bar

There was only one key per dorm room and therefore the door was not locked if someone was inside...although the front desk was close to my dorm door, this arrangement felt somewhat unsafe - anybody could enter the room. The hotel provided safety boxes for valuables but no lockers in the rooms. Also, there was an extra 1€ charge for linens (dorms). Otherwise a decent location to tour the city or to catch a bus to Sounio!

The site says 24 hour cancellation however we rang 3 days in advance and no one would help then 2 then the day before as we just wanted to change the night to the following day. Them they charged my debit card for a night we weren't there. So when we turned up we had to argue our case as they said we hadn't rand even though we rang over 5 times to explain and gave plenty of notice. The room itself was old and the one plug socket was hanging off the wall. Terrible over all experience l

Really near the metro station heading to the port Piraeus, and we could easily walk to the Acropolis !

Was very easy to find and very close to the metro station, we get also free ouzo witch is a typical Greek drink, there is a free walking tour. Mostly recommended to every one.

It was not clean (hair, dirt on floor), smelt damp, toilet leaked onto the floor when flushed, towel rack broken, shower head not attached to wall, further than expected from main attractions. We were just here for one night to see Athens - very glad to go back to our clean rooms on the island we were staying!
