The pics you see of the hostel must be somewhere else. Getting to the hostel is no too easy. You have to take a small sidestreet full of stairs and rubish in every corner until you get to the reception.
The room we got was in a separate building. It wasn't too clean. It had 3 tiny beds whose springs tortured us all night and a small loo where the shower literally hang over the toilet. There was thooth paste that must have been there for a while all over the place.
The air conditioning was ok but the little fridge made a strange noise and didn't let us sleep all night.
The guy at reception will ask you as soon as you check in to make the payment. Of course, his credit card reader doesn't work so you have to pay cash. All places I have been so far you pay when you check out. I guess here he wants to make sure you don't run away after you see the room.
If you want to stay in a nice, clean and simple place in Thira and close to everything I would recommend you GIORGO's VILLA. We stayed there for the first night as the hostel was fully booked and then regretted having discovered this place too late. They owners are very helpful, kind and on top you get a port/airport transfer which wouldn't be less then 15euros.
