Aside from being the cheapest hostel you will find in Oia, which is by the way, the expensive place in Santorini, the staff lacks the ability to handle a large flow of customer day by day. I mean, we sent them email days before our arrival stating we arrive early in the morning and if possible we could just get... More

Arrived back from staying in the Youth Hostel Oia Santorini a couple of weeks ago and I have to say, was a little apprehensive as it was my first stay in a hostel, but trust me - this place is lovely! ...clean, quite, friendly and very welcoming. Jamie and Lydia were brilliant and couldn't have been anymore helpful, even remembered... More

Could not fault this hostel. Clean, very well managed, friendly I could go on. Lydia and Jamie were excellent managers. They looked after you very well and also made sure it was run in an orderly fashion. They are a fountain of knowledge on the area and do a nice little breakfast. Guys, thanks for an amazing stay.

Unsurpassable views, great staff, friendly atmosphere, lots of communal space to relax. Awesome bar and food (including free breakfast), lots of info about activities on the island, nice central location in Oia, dorms large and airy, bathrooms clean. Excellent public transport available within a short walking distance. Overall an really exceptional hostel - only suggestion is Room 5 could use... More

When you arrive to this hostel you'll instantly understand why I say it's one of the best hostels I've ever been to - it looks so beautiful and has such a nice Grecian atmosphere, which is something that most hostels don't care about. With a deck for viewing the sunset and areas to eat breakfast with a view, communal areas,... More

This hostel was absolutely amazing. First impressions were great with a spacious courtyard to relax, gorgeous rooftop for views of the sunset with a bar and finally the unbeatable hospitality from Jamie and Lydia. The rooms were clean (I stayed in a large dorm room) with windows and a large balcony. The bathroom is shared. Fairly clean and spacious, just... More

Oia is the most expensive town in Santorini so this hostel is very reasonably priced (I paid 19€ a night). However the low cost is offset by the lack of cleanliness. There is one mixed shared bathroom for boys and girls with 3 toilets and 3 showers. The result means there are often queues in the evening to shower and... More

Youth Hostel Oia has a ridiculously good location and great facilities/information for travelers, it is just a shame that the experience is dampened by their multitude of rules. There is a perfect view of the sunset from the rooftop bar, but you aren't allowed any of your own food or own alcohol, which would be fine if they didn't shut... More

I had a good time here, everything looks great even though the wifi is a little hard to get in only because it's summer season and all the kids are perpetually on their phone, no fault of the owners. It's not easy to maintain the toilet, after all it's being used by like 18 people in some rooms so pls... More

The hostel itself is beautiful, in a great location to watch the sunset, very nice and fun staff who set a great atmosphere for the hostel. It is very close to lots of shops, restaurants and the bus stop which is very convenient. Quite cheap for what you get especially as it is in Oia, the most expensive part of... More
