    I really like this hostel! The guys are amazing giving their best. I appreciate a lot that also immigrants and refugees (planning a new life) are staying in the hostel. When I met some of them I had very interesting conversations. People meet people, we can learn/teach and support each other. Good to know that being social, respectful and loyal is still around. Thank a lot to Zorbas Team🙏🏼

    The building is old and falling apart but the linens are clean and the bathrooms are cleaned daily. Cheap with a good atmosphere. Nice outside area to hang out. Free coffee and tea and close to the subway

    I was in Zorbas many times and think it's a very good place concerning staff + location and its excellent value for money. This time the atmosphere was different because there were many migrants staying in the hostel on their way to other countries.

    At the price of this hostel, it meets the needs. Also, the location is quite close to the train station, so that is a plus. But besides that, nothing much to say. If you are looking for a very cheap place to spend the night, this is the perfect option.

    The building is falling apart, it’s a seedy neighbourhood (people did drugs right around the corner), the ceiling is SUPER low so if you’re over 6’ you’re sc***d in the shower. There was a general luggage storage downstairs but that was it. Plus the stairs themselves were very tight on the second floor. The staff were generally friendly but I wouldn’t stay again. We paid literally for what we got.

    Stayed one night since we arrived at nearly 12am, then left first thing next morning. Said to count us as “no shows” since we could not cancel, and weren’t worried about the money. I would not stay here as a young woman, especially alone. Owners had an uncomfortable vibe, and the hostel was on a dingey street not central to anything. Facilities also lacked and bathroom privacy. Do not recommend.
