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.

    Fabulous

    It was a little bit run down on the inside with unusual bright blue and green walls and chipping paint. Apart from this first initial impression the hostel was situated in a very good area and safer than other areas we had stayed in Athens . The staff were extremely plesant and helpful giving us recomendations and also very accommodating as we required an extra bed on short notice. It was good value for money with a small breakfast included free of charge. Was perfect for us on a one night stay

    We were greeted warmly, but the air con didn’t work in our room. The heat was unbearable but there was no fix. The guy who was on the night shift obviously felt like we were an inconvenience for raising this as an issue. Eventually we got given a fan, but it wasn’t a huge help. The next morning there was no water, so no showers. It’s cheap & we did have bad luck but it wasn’t a great experience. Oh and the top bunk bed is lethal, with no side bars and an easy fall to the wooden floor below.

    The location is ok, 8 minutes from syntagma square (I’m sure I read it was 2mins but No) The area seems safe and the staff were nice. The description I read was inaccurate. It was horrendous, showers were filthy covered in hair and mold. one of the beds in the dorm was a small fold out stretcher, no air con, No wifi or cell reception in the room. No safe place for your stuff in room. Bkfst was beyond basic. Warm milk, stale corn flakes and bread. It was cheap af but I wont be back
