    We live together in room with 3 beds for 40 eur. Its comfort minimum for several nights if you want go to city center and Akropolis in 5 min. In 2 min several car rental offices, its was reason for us return a car and go to hotel fast.

    Share toilet and shower, trash bin is not easily to open.

    The location is very good which I can get to the acropolis in 15 minute walking and the stuff is helpful. Moreover, I booked a double room and they give me a bigger room which makes me very happy.

    Excellent localisation to visit Athens, it's very close to the Acropolis, the Olympeion, Plaka, Syndagma Place, etc.

    Great locaction in close walking distance to Plaka. Mostly nice staff.

    Breakfast only until 9:30. Rooms and facilities very hostel style.

    The location is perfect.

    The bathrooms need some serious renovations. They were not very private or clean.

    Located directly in the old Plaka district, the pice is phenomenal for this location!!! Toilets & shower clean, hot water available.

  • Group of friends

    Location is perfect, and the ambience inside the terrace, especially in the mornings, is very nice. It opens up the space for conversations. Rooms depend on what you are assigned, but they are more than ok for the prize requested.

    A little bit more service on cleaning the rooms - chaging sheets would have been nice!

    The location of the Dioskourous Hostel is excellent and is only a few minutes from the main square, Acropolis and Plaka. It is a backpackers hostel but it is good value for money and the staff are very friendly helpful. There is A/C but it is controlled by the staff who come to your room and put it on. Breakfast is included and consists of pancakes, chocolate spread, eggs, bread, jam and coffee. However if you turn up after 9am most of the food is gone. They also looked after our rucksacks on the last day before we went to the airport. Overall great value for money and great location.

    very good location, many restaurants behind, and close to Acropolis. A good place to city trip. The pretty reception lady is very friendly and helpful :)

    The hotel have a air conditioner but it is said it cannot be use at this time of the year. But it is June in Athens. Also no mosquito coils. As we say it is too hot, the old man find a long time and give us an electric fan.

    We needed a room for a 12 hour air flight connection. This was ok. Everything run down but clean.

    Soap dispensers empty. Balcony door would not lock.

    The only thing I like here is the location

    This is the hostel, not hotel. The equipment is simple and we've booked a double room but we stayed in a room of 5 beds.

    Small, couzy and very lovley place.

    It's not bad. At least the pillow and mattress looks very clean. Staff are nice. Location is perfect.

    Great location, right across the street from Temple of Olympian Zeus, within walking distance to major sites in Athens and Syntagma Square. Felt very safe walking around area of hostel, had someone at front desk always, even early in the morning (we had to get up early for the marathon!) Pancakes for breakfast were good! Very good value for money!

    Shared bathrooms were a bit small, but never had to wait for them.

  • Family with children

    - the price is higher than it should be for the standard it has - the description on Booked.net is incorrect and incomplete (staff told us it is Booked.net itself that produces the description) - for instance, I expected the room to have a balcony as the description explicitely says "this air-conditioned room features a furnished balcony with Acropolis or Athens City views" - this lured us into the place. Now staff told us there is only one romm with balcony at all and none with Acropolis view - we had two bunk beds without being told so before. With small kids this makes things difficult
