First thing to be be careful: THEY WILL NOT RETURN YOUR MONEY DEPOSIT on your check in if you don't ask. And this didn't happened only with me but with some people i've met there too. Positives: good food at the hostel, Agios Gordios is beautiful, nice bars around, the room was clean and comfortable. Negatives: everybody smoking at the reception, worst wifi ever, the driver of the shuttle bus is very rude, rude staff, everything very far, heavy atmosphere.
The only thing that bothered me was that the transfer from the airport was 1h30 late!
The beach is just down the hill but coming back up the slope breaks legs. That was the worst part about this place. Dinner and breakfast were amazing and surprisingly plenty. The place however tries to push people to party and overly sexualises it to make it some kind of a carnal haven. I found it to be way too desperate. Highly recommended for nymphomaniacs though.
it is a very nice Hostel, but it is far away from the Corfu town you should organise well your schedule because the last bus from the city centre is 20:30. The beach in front of the hostel is amazing but you should explore the other places in the village (the staff will try to make you give up of this idea). As pros: the breakfast and dinner are delicious, the hostel has everything you need, including a mini market and they have transfer go the airport as well.
This is the pink palace. Not separate. Good for solo traveller. Free dinner and breakfast pretty good. Booze cruise a bit of a rip off as it offers no booze. Upgrade to 3 person room for air on. Staff like to get naked. You could also probably drink for free I'd you decide to get naked too. Seems like there are more staff than guests... No wonder Greece is in financial crisis.
Make it clear that Corfu Backpackers & Pink Palace are the same place. Upon upgrading my room I was moved to the pink palace buildings. Only 3 in a room, private bathroom & balcony. Upgrade also includes brekky and dinner, all for an extra €6. So worth it. It is a very party orientated hostel with drinking activities and games during the day and evening. For the most part I lazed on the beach and enjoyed the local area. Staff are very friendly and helpful, making you feel welcome. :)
Corfu Backpackers is the Pink Palace, no separation between them. I booked a private room but they put me in a dorm room. Beach is down the long hill. All in all everything seemed fair. The day staff is way more helpful than the night shift so get all admin stuff done with them before they go home around 8 pm
This is not a backpackers - misleading advert. Its the Pink Palace hotel stuffed with youngsters and its not on the beach at all - its high up on the hill, 130 steps - I counted - and a 150m steep cement road above the beach. Breakfast down below, dinner at the top, and the climb inbetween every time. I booked for 3 nights, stayed only for one. Games offered that encourage the young people to buy more drinks. DInner was very good, and staff OK. Expensive for not on the beach.
Only real issue I had was the lack of an Internet connection in the rooms themselves instead of only in the bar (which got very loud) or on the beach bar. That was inconvenient but it was otherwise good.
If you want to party it's the place to stay. If not it might get noisy during the night. - unfriendly - they seemed annoyed whenever we asked questions and unwilling to give information about things outside the resort (i.e. Island Tours, public buses). ++ breakfast was great ++ bar by the beach with pretty good prices (i.e. Huge plate of fries for € 2) and sunchair ++ many activities to choose from (kayak tours, quad tours...) ++ free airport pick up. Drop off for € 5/person
this is actually part of the pink palace hostel and hotel, but it still has its own reception and bar which is nice. the 2 bedroom we had was fine. the breakfast wasnt good and it was a 10 minute walk to the beach so location wasnt perfect. we went in low season so there wasnt really an atmosphere but in the peak of summer i think this place would be great, and they do quad and kayak tours which looked good, shame we didnt get round to doing them. they also pick you up from the airport!
Absolutely loved this hostel. Booked last minute for a quick break with some friends and had the best time! Met loads of really friendly people and the staff were lovely. Lots of things to do - we were only there a few days but we played beer pong, went kayaking, cliff jumping, had a toga party and quad biking. Food was was better than I expected. Cooked breakfast with bacon & eggs then dinner was outstanding. Great value for money, great atmosphere, highly recommended. Can't wait to go back

Such a fun place! A party oriented hostel, but there is always plenty to do. It's a great place to meet people and discover Corfu.
Corfu Backpackers/Pink Palace is a great place to stay in Corfu!! It's family owned and you feel like you are part of the family. They have excellent hospitality. They also have a DELICIOUS breakfast and dinner, so don't forget to sign up for that. You will love it. They offer tons of options for entertainment and fun while on the island. I strongly suggest the Quad Safari... It was one of the highlights of my trip through Europe!
