The bedroom's cealing was so low and the bedroom was small with a window at floor level. There was no lockers, not enought plugs and no lamps so you must always turn on the main lamp. There is a nice common courtyard so I think this hostal improve at spring/summer but at winter the athmosphere is cold.


We had a great stay in Dioskouros thanks to the Helpful and friendly staff and the good location near the Plaka. Facilities are very basic with the WC and shower down the corridor but the room was warm and clean and the we appreciated the coffee and roll in the mornings. Thank you everyone, we hope to see you again one day.

Good place to stay to explore the city. The facilities aren't luxury but they are definitely adequate. I recommend staying here.


Good service and really enjoyed staying there. Don't expect anything great - you get what you pay for. But would definitely stay there again.


Best value for money. The location is superb - near all the ruins and shopping. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The common room/kitchen is cozy and we met lots of other travelers. The facilities are not dirty as some people have commented - they are just old. The bathrooms are configured a little weird, but it's not problem if you are used to staying in hostels. The rooms have sinks in them, which is very convenient. Classic hostel atmosphere. WiFi is good. Hot water is consistent.


Great stay in dioskouros! I spent a really nice new year eve in 2016 thanks to them !


Lock for the showers and one toilet did't work, so we had to shower unlocked and use another bathroom down the hall. Not too bad, but not ideal. A nice common area, both outside and inside, and ok kitchen. Overall a good place to stay, and the location is great!


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!


Everything was great and the staff was awesome. Breakfast was simple but delicious. Really enjoyed my stay there.


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!
