If you are looking for a central spot, then Dioskouros is a great place, being near to most of the central tourist attractions. In terms of the price, it is decent considering the high prices of accommodation in Athens, however I consider the price high for the services included. The down size of things is that the building has very thin walls, making it an issue in case your room is very close to the WC/showers or there are groups of very loud guests. The breakfast was very good! Thank you!:)


The staff and the location were perfect! The lock on our room was a little broken and the lights did not work very well. There was also a cat in our room when we got there and one of the girls was allergic-- should be something to put on your website. Overall experience was lovely, though.

This is an overdue review, but better late than never. This hostel is great! Location is perfect and the staff are amazing, always ready to help with anything you need. Rooms are neat and clean, Toilets were clean and wifi was good. Enjoyed watching movies on a nightly basis and just chilling out. Will definitely come again when I'm in athens.


the staff is so friendly and its very close to everything. but it is very cold and not as nice as on the pictures. and i was staying in a female only dorm, but the last night there was a man staying there aswell, with his girlfriend. thats not ok, they should have stayed in a different dorm, if they wanted to sleep together.


Location was great, got an awesome rate for a private room, cleaning lady was lovely, rooms very clean, reception girl was very helpful. Kitchen not very clean, toilet seat broken on second floor, showers not fantastic, when we checked in the guy couldn't tell us where a laundry or supermarket were (never ended up finding them either). They turn off the power in ur room during the day but if u ask, they'll put it back on (it's very cold). Cheap beer in vending machine!


Stayed there 2 nights.Location is amazing as it's very closed to the main attractions.The room was clean,warm and specious.Staff were friendly and helpfull.Breakfast every morning is quite good however,they had only an electric cooker so if u wish to cook somehing by yourself it might take a long time.
