Hostel is old and little dirty, shared bathroom looks ugly. Walls are thin, so ear plugs are recommended. Beds squeak. Staff is friendly and available 24/7, I haven't any problem with very early check out. Wifi works fine.
I stayed in this hostel with two friends, and it was great for our first time backpacking in Athens. Dioskorous is located in a very central part of town, with the Temple of Zeus across the street, and the Acropolis is not far away either,...More
If I ever have the good fortune to return to Athens, I will not stay anywhere else but Dioskouros. Yes it's older and could possibly have some updating or repairs, however it is clean, bathrooms are cleaned night and day, and the staff are simply...More
Well the staff at Dioskouros was very helpful and friendly. They gave us a few good advices for places to check out while in Athens. So for that, I'll give them a 5 star. However, I was staying in room 12 and got bed bugs....More
Perfect Plaka location for solo or young travellers . A short term only one star hotel/hostel with a dorm. Shared facilities only. Clean but very very basic! Comfy bed however. Room '28 is blue and white. Nice Med blue shutters like in the Cyclades! Second...More

Due to its proximity to the Acropolis, Plaka remains the area where the majority of foreign visitors stay and play. Its attractive features include small squares, some notable museums and the beautiful Mitropolis cathedral, as well as a host of places to stay, eat and drink. Its pedestrian zones make it a pleasant place to escape from the city’s notorious traffic. Adrianou and Kidathineon Streets contain a
number of souvenir shops, offering classier items than you will find in the Flea Market. The most rewarding section to explore is the upper reaches towards the Acropolis itself, where many old stone houses with tiled roofs have survived. Up here you can find leafier corners and the odd quaint taverna with unobstructed views of the ancient rock.
You need to take the subway from the airport towards syntagma square and then walk 5 minutes down Amalias boulevard towards sygrou boulevard and the hotel is going to be on your right hand, on a small street. Good luck! :)
