“An outstanding location and feel for any type of traveller”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2011

I had an excellent time at Caveland, mostly due to the excellent atmosphere, great pool, really good staff, relaxed attitude, and great people. I found the staff and owners to be extremely nice and accomodating, and really keen to provide an excellent experience for their guests.
I would certainly stay here again, and I think that a longer stay would be very valuable for my well-being. Great Place!

Room Tip: They are all excellent. The private rooms would be nice for a couple.

Felt like my visit to Santorini officially started once i started staying at this hostel. Kostas and Veronika were so welcoming and went beyond anything expected. Love their dream for their hostel and watching it come together. The history, at least when Kostas tell it, behind this old winery turned hostel makes it worth just visiting if nothing else. Miss the times i had there on the island and with them! Rooms were great and love that it was a little into the local neighborhood.

this hostel is a lovely refreshing change, it is well set out, in a quiet location away from the hustle and bustle while only being a short walk from town. big spacious rooms, air con in all, clean, neat and tidy. the staff are fantastic and more than willing to help out when needed. the pool is a great addition and the breakfasts were always yummy. thanks for a lovely stay. had a great time.

Caveland Hostel is an excellent place to stay, one of the best that I've been, in 4 continets.
The hostel is designed according to the architectural style of the Greek islands. It has a very good equipped kitchen and large bathrooms. Free Wi-Fi. All the facilities are large, new and very clean. The breakfast is very complete.
And the staff is extremely nice and helpful, they're willing to help the guests in any subject, even they arrange free transportation to downtown Karterados and Oia.
Only maybe can be tricky to arrive the first time to the hostel, because is new (many local don't know about it) and Karterados doesn't have numbers on the houses, so just ask the locals for the tennis courts.

Amazing Hostel in an amazing place. Veronika and Kostas are the best hosts on the island - and Caveland - a revamped winery with traditional cave dwellings built into the volcanic island - is simply stunning. Top 3 things about Caveland:

1) Free transfers to & from Fira town.
2) Amazing place to hang out in the evenings and the morning (at the free breakfast
3) Great people in a great environment. Michael (the live-in manager) will even play the guitar and sing you a song if you ask nicely.

Room Tip: Call Veronika directly....

If anyone ever plans on going to Santorini - Definitely stay at Caveland. The layout of Caveland is so unique and the energy there is sublime filled with an international crowd of savvy flashpackers. On top of that Veronika and Kostas (locals/owners) really go the extra mile for you providing personal transport, and insights on places to go and see for an authentic experience. Veronika will be giving sunset yoga classes starting soon. I miss my cave so much and will be back soon. Thanks guys for an amazing experience!

I've been around the whole world and I can tell you that I've never had a hostel that was better than caveland. Vero and Kostas are two people who really care about making your trip memorable and helping you in any way possible. Most hostels are hollow rooms which lack character and comfort, but Caveland is the exact opposite. It has a charm that is unparalleled by any other hostel I've stayed at. The pool area is beautiful and all the rooms are thoughtfully designed to suit the needs of backpackers (every person has their own outlet and locker!!) The location is perfect, just a short walk from Fira town and Kostas will help you rent an ATV to make traveling on the island a lot easier. I loved my stay and Caveland and I can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: just talk to Vero - she will help you!
