“Not the best hostel”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

The private rooms are in a different place under a different name a bit further away. The key had to be put in a special place to get electricity so when leaving the house the fridge also stopped working. We spent 2 nights in a private room and a night in the dorm.

The staff were OK but when we asked if they can give us a ride back to the port when we leave (ferry went after midnight) they were quite doubtful and said they only make plans advance and told us to ask again the next day, when we were leaving. Next day I overheard a convo where a guest asked to get to the port and they told him to take a bus or a 25euro taxi. Instead we were invited to be taken back to the port by the hosts of our previous hotel next door.

In the dorm area internet connection is horrible and they only had 1 computer working in their computer room FULL of computers. Its easier to be connected to the Atlas wifi network across the street. In the villa for private rooms the wifi was good.

Also you have to check out at 11 in the morning which is a lot earlier than average.

Room Tip: The dorms (bigger rooms) on the first floor open to the hang out area and the street and will be ver...

What they don't tell u on there site is that check in times for this hostel are 8am - 2pm and 6pm -9pm which we were unaware of when we arrived at 3pm. I was furious that i had to lug my big backpack around for 3 more hours. Other than that great location to bike rentals, atvs etc. and great restaurants. Close to the bar strip but it wasn't too popular kind of an older couple type vibe. Hostel staff leave at 10pm ish and u have full control of the place, great front patio for playing drinking games and making friends. Overall liked the hostel met cool people, had fun but wouldn't recommend Santorini the beaches are rocky and too hot to touch the sand and the nightlife is non existent.

Room Tip: its all cheap, you can't go wrong with any room!

Great place to stay! It was a 5 minute walk from Perissa Beach. Dorm style rooms. The beds are comfy, the rooms were really hot during the day, but they turn the AC on after a certain time.
Fun people. Shared bathroom (this was the only semi-negative thing as there were only 3 showers). Computer area. The common area is an outside sitting area which is really lively all the time!

It is near some fun bars and really cheap restaurants and grocery stores. If you walk down 5-10 minutes, many locals live there, so the area is just very authentic (at least it seemed that way to me!) I mean minus the naturally touristy shops to rent ATVs and motorcycles etc, which by the way you need if you want to go to any other nearby beaches because the bus takes WAY too long and the closest beach is literally 15 minutes on your own vehicle (almost 1 hour by bus).

This place was really nice-and budget friendly. The lady there was helpful and they were able to pick me up and drop me off at the port-a must cause the buses are not reliable. I stayed in a four bed dorm, it was clean with big lockers and the air con was great! The bathrooms got really dirty fast-just cause of their design but i really dont think theres anything you can do about the dust and salt there. They were cleaned daily so that was great. location was fine-not in the main towns of the island but a really good home base. I would stay here again. Rent an ATV from the place next door if you can. The only bad thing was that the reception was open from 9-1 and then 7-9. Made it a bit hard, but i emailed requests and that worked.

Room Tip: The large dorms have good air con too and still seem to have enough room.

My boyfriend and I rented a double room last week. We got picked up for free at the harbour and then when we arrived to the hostel we realised that the private rooms are actually just a few minutes away in this lovely villa with a pool! It was great and so cheap! The rooms are basic but clean, there is a great 24h bakery and shops next to the villa...and you can rent a scooter or quad for 10 euros per day just outside too! Very good cheap option for your stay in Santorini.

Great price, has bakery and groceries in walking distance. Walking distance to perissa beach. Cheap bike rental place nearby. Nice bar nearby. Sells ferry ticket here too.

Toilet is sometimes dirty with the sand as it is quite near the beach with people coming back from the beach.

The lady at reception was so helpful. She was always going out of her way to help the guests. Rooms were clean, with air con too which is good in the hot Greek summer. Five minutes to walk to the black beach and the beach bar club making the location great. Also you get 15% discount at the reception accross the road were the food is pretty tasty!!
