Hotel Dioskouros
In an unassuming street directly under the acropolis in the atmospheric old quarter of Paka and right next to the brand new acropolis museum, Hotel Dioskouros is located in one of the city's more exclusive areas, offering travelers a first-rate location, at budget hostel rates.

This intimate hotel offers clean and simple rooms with shared bathrooms and all basic hotel facilities: air conditioning, inclusive breakfasts, free internet wifi in common area, 24-hour reception and security. Several top floor rooms offer a close-up view of the acropolis while the garden below comes alive in the summer for guests to drink, socialize and relax.

The hotel's immediate surroundings present a palpable sense of history. Guests can follow the ancient paths winding around the acropolis, the temple of Zeus, byzantine churches, neoclassical mansions, small eclectic museums and the new world-class Acropolis Museum - all of which are within 5-6 minute walk. Traditional greek tavernas line the cobbled streets as do the traditional greek blues houses (rembetika) and ouzo bars to boot.

Venturing a few minutes further by foot, guests could find themselves within the shopping district of Ermou, hunting for antiques at Monastiraki's flea market, following the footsteps of Socrates at the ancient marketplace, sipping coffee in Kolonaki, or in the vibrant party areas of Gazi or Psyrri.

All essential amenities are accessible including direct transport links to the airport (30 minutes away by metro or bus), easy access to the beach at Glyfada (via tram or metro) and train links to the south cost port of Pireas.

    Excellent hostel/hotel in Plaka! It has a late kitchen for you to do your own cooking and a lovely back garden to sit in with their two resident cats. The basement rooms and facilities are more basic than upstairs but they are functional and clean! The staff are helpful and offer great suggestions of where to go.

    Dioskouros is very centrally located, close to Hadrian's gate and the temple of Zeus. We walked all through the National Gardens from here as well as the neighborhood of Anafiotika. The front desk staff were friendly and helpful; they gave us great dinner recommendations! The bathrooms were nice and appeared to be recently remodeled. The luggage storage lockers were also very helpful after check-out.

    The basement rooms here are much worse than the upstairs rooms which we found out on our second stay at this hostel. It was located right by the Acropolis and Zeus’s temple which was perfect! I’ve definitely stayed at nicer hostels but the location of the hostel and helpfulness of the staff made up for the uncomfortable beds and other negatives.

    Great place, as a lone female traveller I would highly recommend. It is within Plaka and English is spoken everywhere there as it is very touristy. I saw other people's hostels for cheaper in an area I would not have been comfortable with. HOWEVER, the hostel is quite sloppy. The bathroom was not regularly cleaned, nor the bedroom. The cleanliness was appalling. The staff also missed on simple things like making sure all the breakfast food was restocked, but worth it for location.
