Fantastic service. The location is great. Very close to everything : food,archeological sites,metro. Easy to go around by foot. You might not see the Acropolis from your window but for the price and all, it's really not a big deal! I had a great 3 days in Athens because of the staff! Keep on the good work :)

We arrived early in the morning from Sofia by bus. Walk for 2.5km to get to the hostel. This old guy at the reception get our room ready instantly while we wait at the common area and have breakfast - pancakes, bread.

We were initially unimpressed with this place. Small room, no private bathroom as advertised. We were moved to a better room on next nights. Airconditioning was present but did not work, if it did you paid extra! I was very close to Plaka with all its restaurants and shops. Plus it was a short walk to the entrance for the...

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 and helpful. There is A/C but it is controlled by the staff who come to your room and put it on...

We stayed there 3 nights 11 June 2012, a family of 4 Hostel Dioskouros is on a back street walking distance to all the archaeological sites, museums and old town, it's old and not salubrious but OK for the purpose, owner and staff were warm and welcoming, more important than spic and span with grumpy staff and anyway we were...

A great location but other than that it's terrible. When a hotel lists a/c is a feature on their website you usually expect it to be free, but they don't tell you until you check in that it's an extra 10eur a night. The beds are lumpy and really uncomfortable, I used the blanket for one night and had bites...

Other than the location of the place, I cannot recommend staying here. The person who runs the place is unfriendly, we arrived and they could not find our reservation and we were put in dorms instead of the room we reserved (we even had an email confirmation of our reservation from THEM), they claimed not to take credit cards when...

Hotel Dioskouros is located on one hand on very quiet street but also very close to Acropolis, Plaka and Monastiraki so you can go for a walk in the evening and you don't have to worry how to get back to your hotel. That's big advantage. But it's just a hostel so you shouldn't expect much: it is clean, wireless...

The hotel is small but very intimate, clean and well located in Plaka. Though the hotel is on a narrow but peaceful lane, it is not a problem to locate it from Syntagma Square. Staff are really good and friendly. Pakistani night staff is really helpful and guided us at his best. Breakfast was enough and good.

Staying in Plaka

Neighbourhood Profile
Plaka
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.
