“Amazing hospitality, great location”
Reviewed April 18, 2014

If your going to do ios, you should stay here . Purple Pig made our Europe trip. We always felt at home at this family run hostel, the family especially George (legend) were very helpful and friendly always greeting us with a smile. The purple pig has a prime location right near the main beach with shops and bars nearby. The rooms were comfortable and spacious with a deck and a private bathroom. Would defiantly go back.

It is located in a good area, right next to the beach. However the accommodation isn't brilliant, not exactly the cleanest place. Saying that though we did have a fantastic time partying on the island, the staff were really friendly and helpful.

This place is amazing, you are made to feel like family, the accommodation is tidy with an excellent pool and service. George is a great guy who looks after everyone-Excellent English. I was a solo female traveller and I was made to feel welcome. This was in a perfect location as it was close enough to the parties but not right in the middle of it all, so a group of us may go and join the parties or have a few at the Purple Pig before going to town. I travelled around Europe for 3 months and The Purple Pig was by far my most favourite accommodation, I did not want to leave. The places in town are too far away from the beach and the far out camping ground is too full on with stinking hot tent things.

My friend and I were doing the Greek Islands through busabout (no, don't do it. WASTE OF MONEY) but chose to stay at more affordable accommodation. Purple Pig is right next to Far Out so you can still use their pool facilities and bar and the bus stop to the town is a two second walk. George is absolutely lovely, he is incredibly efficient and will always be there to help, for a good chat or for a beverage and a dance. The rooms are perfect. Clean, white and cold!

100% recommend Purple Pig. Couldn't fault it. It's a family run hostel and the son George was a great host, really good value. The hostel attracts a good crowd and we met some really awesome people during our stay. Close enough to all the action but not as intense as Far Out. Close to the beach, great pool, nice rooms, cool bar.. Do it!

Purple pig was great value for money! The staff were friendly and accommodating and the food and drink at the hostel cafe was good value for money (1€ shots!!!). The hostels location is good-just meters to the beach. The walk into town is up quite a steep hill and takes about 15 minutes, however there is a bus service during the day and taxis are cheap. We stayed in dorm rooms with private bathrooms, however camping is a cheaper alternative. The atmosphere of the hostel was great, and the poolside bar was a really fun place to hang out at night and pre-drink before heading into town. Overall, our experience staying at Purple pig was great and we would stay there again!

I and my husband stayed in the purple pig for 1 one week in july 2012, upon arrival we found it was a very nice spot but this did not stay the same at night time, as we were camping we were below the room's where there were lots of young irish/english boys staying. the noise would start at about 11pm every night and would go on until 2am and resume at 6 am where all we heard from then until the boy's went to bed was how good going to the toilet was and how they could not wait to go again. we also had 3 smoke butts burn through our tent and one resulted in my husbands head being burn badly and one morning woke up to a used condom on top of our tent. our complaints went unheard to the owner as he said they were good friends of his and he could not kick them out.... DO NOT GO HERE IF POSSIBLE
