The staff is warm-heart, showed us how to go to the port in very detailed and marked on the map; The location is excellent, near to Syntagma Square, Olympieion, and Acropolis.
The breakfast is included, which starts at 7:30. We leave early and want to take some bread with us in advance, but they said it is brought by somebody else rather than prepared by them. I cannot blame them but I do feel unfair because I paid for the breakfast but had nothing.
Location. Walking from the syntagma square, acropolis. Great value for money
The description about the room on the booking site is not real. The rooms have no view or balcony. They say they are overbooked and hence you might end up with different category of rooms.
The hotel was near every place of interest.
Mosquitoes bite me at night.
It's close to everything
Very unhelpful staff, dirty and broken bathroom facilities, dirty bedsheets, bad noise insulation (we were hearing persons from other rooms snooring), very poor breakfast. The photos from the website are totally photoshopped. It's totally not good value for money!
The location was great and the staff were very helpful. In the night we left our window open and the hotel cat came in and slept in our bed. Good thing we're cat lovers.
the rooms were not very clean and there was a lot of noise in the hallways. The bed was not very comfortable
The location was great. The staff were friendly and helpful. Good value for the money but ... be advised.
Older facility - needed updating (bit of a dump really) - e.g. squeaking doors Breakfast was weak. No TV. Air conditioning controlled by staff.
staff keep baggages after check out
very dirty awful smell poor breakfast etc...
Really, the bed bugs.
location is really great, just few steps from acropolis and nice Plaka area with plenty shops and restaurants. Close to the metro station.
Most horrible thing is aircon rule... you can't have your own remote controller, so every time you want to turn it on you have to go out and find the stuff to do it for you. it is especially great in the middle of the night, because they turn it on for no longer than 2 hours.... bathroom is broken and dirty, i guess they clean it once in several days. Wi-Fi is only available in public areas. Breakfast suppose to start at 8, but normally it is 30 min late. It is big deal in summer, coz early morning is the only time when you can comfortably visit acropolis.
Decrepit rooms with bunk beds and bathroom facilities had no soap. Room was advertised to have A/C but the receptionist kept the remote in his possession and then switched it off at the mains at 3 am -- we woke up sweating in the early hours and had to go ask someone to turn it back on -- and it switched off again after 20 mins. We were woken up by noisy people chatting just outside our window at 8 am. I later found that a whole apartment could be rented for the same price €60 per night on AirBnB.....
The staff were very nice and helpful
The bathrooms were disgusting, the rooms were not particularly clean, the common areas were really dirty, the included breakfast was non-existent, the internet didn't work.
We are a family of 2 adults and 3 children and stayed for 3 nights. The rooms were quiet and clean. The location is very central and there is a nice back-yard garden. No great luxury but a cosy hostel-like atmosphere (no kitchen facilities though). Good value for money.
The location is excellent, only a few minutes walk from the acropolis and other central sights in Athens. The staff were generally friendly and did sort things out when asked (although often it didn't take long for things to break again...). Easy to get laundry done. The patio area is nice at the back of the property. Good wifi.
This "hotel" is very definitely a hostel, fair enough it was cheap but there were other cheaper places available when we booked. We chose Dioskouros because it seemed to have the most character from the website - mistake! Staff were not friendly when we arrived. Lights were fused on the stairs. Electricity and air conditioning did not work in our room (main light did). When we mentioned this after a couple of days (our choice) the staff did manage to turn the power back on (the air con didn't start but I think that they could have fixed that if we had asked) but it tripped again about 8 hours later. We didn't bother asking about it again because everything seemed to be very run down/a bit broken and we just assumed that the staff didn't care - this may not be the case. The place needs a serious clean - I have a reasonable tolerance for shared bathrooms/living areas (I have done a few glastonbury's quite happily) but these were just filthy. Toilet seats that were no longer attached. No toilet paper. Very rudimentary doors on the showers etc. It is a real shame because the building is nice and with a very small amount of effort this could be a great basic place to stay. Breakfast was pathetic. We only went once because the selection of dry bread, something that might have been chocolate spread, coffee that had been through the filter previously (we saw this, not just a guess) and eggy bread of some vintage looked awful.
So close to the Acropolis it's amazing.
For the price we expected a little more. Shared toilets and showers are very average. Backpackers slumming here.
The courtyard out the back is very cosy and welcoming. Very nice place to sit and relax.
The amenities were out of order for our stay.
There is a little garden with tv in the hostel. The room is tidy and comfortable. Close to the sights.
The toilet is not clean, as there is no curtian for the shower. Our room cannot recieive wifi. No kitchen or microwave for us to use.
The staff was very helpful and polite. They told us what to visit in the city as well as what areas to avoid. The location of the hotel is truly excellent. We didn't need the metro to get around! By the way, try their burger! It's one of the best we've ever had!
The bathrooms were not what we expected they were not very clean looking. Wear flip flops for showers.
Didn't require any public transport to see attractions as everything was at walkable distance.
Got twin bed instead of Double bed. Bathroom use was messy and leaky.
It's just at the foot of Acropolis and other places of interest.
The rooms are not at all sound-proof and it's a little noisy at night.
the location was great. Personal was really friendly
while the room was reasonable clean, the bathroom was extremely dirty, and without toilet paper.
Full of young people screaming after midnight,we had the room next to the reception and althought there is a lovely garden at the back of the hotel they use the reception to talk and drink so we couldn't sleep all night.the venting machine is next to the rooms as well so all night people use it and made noise while they were taking their foods,drinks!!!
The price, the location and great personnel (friendly, helpful, careful)
Furniture, general condition of the building and facilities
Close to acropolis and the centre of Athens
Stay away. Public health hazzard!! I stayed there for three days (I had paid for four) not once did they clean the two common toillets (used by seven rooms on the floor). I talked about it with both the reception and the cleaning lady and they didn't even bother to find an excuse. I still wonder how they managed to get a 6.1 rating in cleaning. Other than that they didn't change the sheets or the towel for three days. There were cigarettes on the balcony floor. All in all don't ruin your vacationby staying here.
Nice garden and place to have breakfast
The place was old and bathroom shared. No lockers in the room, no service.
Hostel type . Go on pay 20 euro more and get hotel standard. For us all were booked up.
Centre of Athens shut down for visiting government official. Regular occurrence apparently. No text to warn us of 6hr traffic jam. Resolutely said we should park car illegally and walk 3km with our 2 young children at midnight. Through the police cordons. We're not going to cancel and not charge no way. So if you have an issue. Forget it. Only 1 bulb working in room. Got ticket whilst unloading at 2am as neighbours called police. Car in a resident parking bay! Blankets smelt but didn't expect much
