No complaints at all! Good price. About 20 minutes from city centre. They provide towels, top n bottom sheets, and blankets. Wifi in rooms but not that strong.


Great hotel, amazing staff! Such a good time


The foremost plus is its location which is just a walking to Victoria metro station so it saves me much time to travel. Or if you enjoy walking, just walk along the 3rd September or 28th October roads and you will reach Monastiraki, Plaka. The room is clean and the staff is helpful too. One minus is the wifi. My room is at the end-corner and no wifi reached so I had to sit at the stairs for wifi connection. But for me it is not a big problem since we are on vacation so just enjoy the atmosphere


rooms were extremely small, no sheets were provided, ants were crawling everywhere in the bathroom

The beds and bathroom were clean, but this place is really run down and old. The rooms are damp and musty when the windows are closed. The private rooms are basically dorm rooms with a double bed and several bunkbeds minus the other guests. The stay is friendly and accommodating though.

1.All the rooms around the world need some fresh air sometime that"s why you have choice since there are windows to open them. 2.The private rooms are dorms?? you book for a private and you got a dorm?or you book for a dorm and you got a private? Cause that's confusing.


This place is right by the metro and about a 20-30 minute walk from monasteraki. Otherwise it really is just a place to sleep. Common room really bad with incredibly loud techo so no place to socialize. No lockers but safe at the reception. Wifi is pretty solid though.


Would recommend.


only stayed one night and didnt really get the chance to experience it properly, a good stop off point though.


Very cheap. That's all.


Overall the hostel was okay, but not exceptional. The 'kitchen'consisted of a single unclean fridge and a poor quality microwave. There was no cutlery or basic cooking implements available. The 'safety deposit box' was actually just handing your items to staff and them putting it behind the desk, not even locked up. The staff were lovely though and happy to help with anything. The common room was often empty and there were very few people at the bar to talk to and share a drink with.


It's fine if u just need a bed to sleep but it's not much more than that no kitchen not good wi fi nice bar. Place needs a good Reno


Private room is worth the money, we stayed in both a dorm and a private room separately and the latter was cleaner and safer


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.


This place was really cheap and has a/c, thats about all that it has going for it. Internet wasn't great. Location is ok, two metro stops from centre. No real common spaces but two computers and a bar downstairs. Bathroom wasn't great. Would recommend if all you want is a cheap bed to sleep in.


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 very impressed. Lacked security and good wifi.


Cozy place, n staff is so so nice.


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.
