“Cheap, uncomfortable, horrible owner. For a hostel, go elsewhere.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2011

I booked this place after researching everywhere, and wished I never had.

1- While we were on our vacation, I received several emails saying that if I didn't confirm we would lose our booking! WHAT!? I confirmed just before I left, and Pavlos said all was good. Talk about worried on a 2 month vacation! We were on the road, far from telephones and every
email I sent, went ignored. We held our breath and hoped for the best.

2, When we did arrive the taxis were on strike so he tried to sell us on renting a car from his brothers business. We refused, and when we told him he said he'd have to move us from our room to another. C'mon man, we booked it six months ago, and we're only there fir 2 nights!

3, When he told us he was going to switch rooms, he said he would switch our bags for us while we enjoyed the beach. Lo and behold, upon our return to the "hotel" there were our bags, right in the reception area! All the stuff we owned and needed sitting right there.

Yup, I know for a hostel you shouldn't expect much but this guy was a [--] and I would tell anyone and everyone because of his lack of care, do yourself a favor, and book somewhere else.

Hope this helps...

Hostel world/ bookers recieives the 10 % as a deposit , not white palace. Property requires CCV in order to secure booking as they there is a policy of a ONE night charge in case of no show. It is standard that all guests are asked to send cvv in order to verify booking. Many times , there are cancelations and guests FORGET to inform hostel. In these cases the property looses out as it turns away others during peak season.
Many guests leave their belonging in the waiiting area. NOT ONCE has anything gone missing since 1996 upon opening. If the area were not safe then , it would be understood to panic!
Owner , has no brother. Perhaps , he just wanted to help out during the taxi strike ., everyone free to rent from anyone they wish. As far as having to move rooms, sometimes that may happen , in order to accommodate others who have a serious problem of climbing stairs or families with young children. I appologise for any inconvenience. That too has happened to me in a 5 star hotel.
