“A little slice of paradise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2012

Couldn't recommend it more highly! Caveland was full of delightful surprises - from the beautiful scenery, lovely pool and chilled-out atmosphere to the warmth and charm of the hosts and guests. Kostas and Veronika made us feel at home and were full of good ideas, little favours and BBQ skills. The place is near enough to the central town (Fira) to wander in and stagger home, and I'd recommend renting all-terrain vehicles to zip about the rest of the island.

The hostel would have to be the most spacious and well presented I have ever stayed in worldwide.

The location is nice and quiet but it is a bit of a walk to the main town for dinner etc.

The staff need to get their act together, costa the owner is lovely, knowledgeable and well known/loved around town and is the staffs saving grace. However the other hired members off staff have not got a clue, checkout should only take 5 minutes but for some reason the lady took almost half an hour, we were initially walked into the incorrect room much to the disdain of two very surprised already settled guests.

That being said it is early on in the season and the staff will improve so I would reccomend this hostel and if you have it in the budget get a private room; although aircon is included in all types of rooms.

This place has awesome character. I stayed in a dorm room and it's large and spacious. Bbq dinner last night was delicious and a great way to meet fellow travellers. Amazing pool to top off an amazing place :)

Had a great time at Caveland. Booked 2 nights and ended up staying for a week. The owners are great and very helpful. Awesome BBQ and nice yoga classes in the morning.

Ever wanted to live like the Flintstones... then staying at Caveland is as close as it gets! A great quirky hostel full of character! Stayed in a large spacious mixed 10 bed dorm, and was really lovely. Very clean and stayed cool in evenings without the need for aircon. Best perk as well is the lovely sized pool, all others pools I noticed in Fira are tiny literally tubs. So thats is a great perk, good free breakfast and a lovely chilled out atmosphere. Easy to meet people and make new friends. The owners are lovely, definitely recommend Veronikas Hatha Yoga sessions, great way to start the day off. Good tours from there as well. Fab Hostel, highly recommend it. Having stayed in over 60-100 hostels in my time, I would put this in my top 5 - and definitely number 1 spot for the quirky factor! :-)

No caldera view, but this is a fun place to stay in the centre of the island. Basically a hostel we had a clean, pleasant double room with the benefit of the natural cave air conditioning. The very friendly, laid back and well-informed staff have created a relaxed atmosphere in contrast to the rather hard-driven tourism generally fund in Santorini. Limited, self service breakfast with instant coffee not ideal, but then, again, this is a hostel.
