I booked the wrong day and didn't realize it until I got there. The guy at the front desk was nice enough to change my reservation to that day. I was there for a long layover and just wanted somewhere to sleep. He saved my night. They have wifi, the bathrooms are good as well. 24 hour front desk service....

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, we could see it from our window. There is lots of shopping, restaurants, and public...

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 the best! Friendly and helpful, nothing is too much trouble and the French toast produced...

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. It was horrible. My arms were devoured. And I think I carried a few of...

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 floor. Opposite facilities. Rooms come (thank God) with a basin. Air conditioning works in some...

Very happy with what you pay for. Good room, door locks, lockers provided downstairs, lovely people work there, 24 hour door, fantastic location for Acropolis and great restaurants. Quiet at night and this is enforced by the people which work there which is great.

Cleanness at lowest possible level. Door were not closing. Breakfast was very cheap. Toilets and bathroom are horrible, may be danger for health, because they seem to be not cleaned. Really do not recommend.

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.
