It's on the far side of the island from the major town the reception is fantastic about organizing trips anywhere you want to go though, the staff is fantastic in every sense of the word and the hostel itself is beautiful beyond belief. I can't recommend this place enough.


Was actually the pink palace which i was unaware of. Bathrooms and toilets quite dirty, didnt want to even shower as i was only there 1 night. very far uphill walk to reception but right on the beach which is nice. Advertised free transfers, had to wait 2 hours to get picked up from the ferry port and couldnt go to the airport at the time i needed the next day. get what you pay for.


The staff was quite rude - starting with the wife of the hostel owner. The dorm rooms were a bit creepy - there were no security lockers to keep your things, also the apartment door didn't seem to lock in a secure way. Overall, going to sleep there always felt a bit like russian roulette. As for the great reviews about partying and the atmosthere etc - if your only idea of a good time is getting really-really drunk for a lot of money with a bunch of shallow people, then you're in a right place.


Cofu Backpackers is the pink palace. You will stay in the same place. If you are up for some partying then you'll love your stay. The beach is not great, but you'll be guaranteed to meet people. Feels a bit like a continuous college frat party, but if that's what you like, you'll be fine!


Stayed for one night and I was very glad to leave!


This hostel leads you to believe it's a more relaxing, quieter place that is associated with pink palace but the rooms are actually right in the middle of the pink palace, next to the beach bar with very little privacy and no ocean views as they claim. We chose Corfu backpackers because we wanted a quieter hostel away from the parties and instead we had a group of people sitting outside our room partying by the pool until 2am. Very misleading.

Loved the dinners and breakfast and the quad safari was great fun. Night life can be a bit strange but still a great hostel


My friend and I stayed in a twin private room in the pink palace, it was old and dirty. The food was great and staff was very outgoing. However, the major complaint I have is that there were a few guys who put date rape in some girls drinks at the bar, and when the owner was told about the incident, he said those guys would be kicked out. However the guys offered him money to stay, and the owner accepted. For that, I would never stay again, nor recommend it.

Good place to stay


THIS IS THE PINK PALACE!!! People smashing glasses outside our windows and yelling loudly all night. The 'corfu backpackers' is actually jus the part of the pink palace which is attached to the beach bar which is where ALL the parties are, really noisy. Met quite a few others that were really disappointed with the fact that they had marketed this as the relaxing 'family friendly' corfu backpackers. Also kept our deposit which we made on this website which was annoying.
