Fantastic staff.... excellent budget choice.


We had a wonderful stay at Dioskorous the location is great very close to sites and the staff were friendly free breakfast was a lovely addition to an already great hostel!


I had a great stay at the hostel. Nice, helpful staff, great location, perfect yard. Only thing that bothered me was that the shower wasn't clean. But apart from that: fantastic hostel.


All staffeli was so nice except the man who was in the reception the noget between the 9. and 10. November at 04.30 in the morning.


This hostel had some ups and downs. It was in a great location, it had an inviting common area and some of the staff were really helpful and friendly. On the other hand, other staff members were very average and seemed as though they were annoyed by one's presence. All in all, I really enjoyed our stay here. We met some awesome people, but the bathrooms really were a little unhygienic. Not revolting by any means but they weren't too fresh neither.


Toilets and showers could be a lot cleaner and kitchen is really minimal, but other than that it's a nice little hostel.


Staff here are amazing, let me have breakfast the day I arrived and even let me check in early. Great location under the acropolis and nearby to metro and airport bus. No lockers in room and bathrooms little bit limited for the number of people and no curtains so water tends to go everywhere otherwise great place to stay!


The hostel is good for this price and you even have a nice small breakfast. its very good located and has nice common rooms. There is a woman working called Jola she is wonderful and always there to help you and she is really working a lot. The other staff was okay but not very communicative. The rooms are a bit dark and unfortunately the bathrooms are really dirty and never clean.


Great stay there.


Excelent location and nice staff. However, not the cleanest hostel. Overall we had a nice stay! Defenitly will come back!


The bathrooms could have been cleaner (although a spray bottle was provided if you wanted to wipe down the toilets yourself) and the showers flooded everywhere. There was never any soap in the bathrooms which was kind of gross. The location was decent and the staff was friendly. The room was comfortable.


vary good value for the money. Kind and helpful staff.

This hostel/hotel has excellent location but that's about it. The bathrooms were dirty and unpleasant and the bed was uncomfortable. Book this Hostel if you want a good location.


Pros: good location, nice garden, low price. Cons: facilities are run down and the overall perception of cleanliness is disappointing. there have been lots of mosquitos in our room. Stay there only if you need a cheap sleepover close to Sintagma.


Nice emplacement. The room are clean but a bit old and small. We can't close the toilets. The shower aren't really clean. The breakfast was included (tea, coffee, bread and stuff to put on the bread). The terrace is nice.


The location is awsome, really friendly and helpfull people working there , breakfast is included and good but not at 7:30 am, bed and bath rooms are clean.


My experience in Dioskouros was really bad. I booked a bed in a dormitory, the room was clean but the common areas (toilets and bathroom) were very very dirty. (many hairs on the floor in both areas / the floor was dirty because of people's shoes / the shower were not clean and water was standing on the floor. They had no medical disinfectant or sticking plaster for basic injuries... that was really bad !


The best way to describe the hostel is cheap and cheerful. The hostel is well located with very friendly and helpful staff.


This hostel is very homely, rooms feel like bedrooms more so than a hostel room, Staff were all really friendly and nice, location is brilliant, everything is pretty near, No security lockers in my room but I was in a room with only 3 others. Showers are a bit weird, two showers in one room, with just frosted glass. Kinda weird.. I would stay here again though.


Very nice place to stay in Athens, awesome garden and a simple breakfast included.
