    For the price, it was a very good hostel. Very simple, but all the basics you would need. I was in a room with 5 beds which had a private bathroom attached to it. There were never more than three people staying in the room though. The room was in good condition upon arrival and was always kept clean. The outlets had multi-socket extenders which was very convenient, and free coffee and cookies were provided from I think 7-10am, so can't complain. Staff was helpful even if not super friendly.

    Great location and great price...air con in the room and the control for it left to our use as well. Zani (sorry if I’ve written your name badly) was brilliant and helpful on the front desk. Plan to stay here again for sure.

    Having a private bathroom in the room was a nice touch. Location is perfect, I didn’t have to catch public transport once as everything was within walking distance. The area isn’t the best, but I’ve noticed while walking around, that it’s just Athens itself, homelessness, graffiti and strange smells not too bad. As a solo female traveler, there wasn’t a time I felt unsafe. The next best improvement would be lockers. I just kept my valuables close, although never worried about anyone in my room.

    A bit run down, but if you're looking for a place just to sleep without all the bells and whistles, it's a good choice for the cost. Was only in town for 1 night so it worked fine for me.

    We found Zorba’s to be pleasant but basic. The beds were comfy, the rooms well air conditioned and communal areas quite clean. There were no lockers in the rooms, however staff were happy to hold onto valuables. Staff were generally helpful and friendly. The area had we two female travellers feeling uneasy out at night, but we never had any troubles, and metro connections were very accessible. The hostel does not have its own bar, but guests can use that of a partner hostel two metro stops away.

    We were here less than 24 hours and spent only a few hours inside the building so we did not get a feel for the atmosphere. We felt ourselves and our belongings were secure. We liked the ensuite bathroom in our room. One of the two front desk staff we interacted with seemed like he would rather be anywhere else and that any guest questions or needs were a burden. The other guy was friendly enough. 2 min walk from the green metro line that takes you downtown.

    I know this was right in the middle of the city so I gave it a good rating for location. I think most is the facilities need to be upgraded though. Nice staff, very helpful but a little on the dumpy side.

    The receptionist was extremely rude and unfriendly. Wouldn't give proper directions and simply didnt want to help travellers in navigating around. The location is OK, but the facilities could be better.
