Good kitchen, close to everything, people (staff) just hang around awkwardly and it kinda feels like 24/7 security or something but the main women is very nice, free laundry though no dryer but one up the road for 6€. Showers/ bathrooms are gross tiny showers and mouldy shower curtain sticks to your back while showering, all showers in Greece are very similar though.
Firabackers have a very good hostel atmosphere.. Its very close to everywhere in fira n the main bus station that will take u to all other parts of santorini. Only 1 complain, the toilet can really really be improved... Showers get clogged after a shower n the whole toilet will flood. Apart from that, no issue at all. I will return back to this place if i were to return to santorini again!
Stayed in a private room which had an awesome balcony! Bathrooms could do with some TLC but other than this I think the place was awesome!

I loved this place!!! Great common area, kitchen and easy to meet fellow travellers here. Although it was low season this place still felt rather busy and had a great vibe. The staff were super friendly and switched on to keeping everything clean and tidy. I will highly recommend this hostel to friends!
Good hostel. Friendly, helpful staff. Went in off season, and the biggest group of people we saw at night was in the common area in the hostel. Not much of an atmosphere though. Honestly think that had more to do with the fact it was off season than the hostel though. Showers were not the best.
They have a pool, free laundry, and a good kitchen. Great location and atmosphere. Small bathrooms and spotty wifi
Hi i came here at the end of the season but still found it had a great atmosphere and was very close to town and shops. Good kitchen and rooms had lockers

The staff was really nice and friendly and gave us a lot of suggestions on what to do. However, there is one staff early morning that doesn't know anything and asked me to wait until his colleague come to answer my question. The room was nice because they provide you with a cupboard with a small lock on it.
I loved to stay in Fira backpackers! The staff was very kind and helpful. The best that I've ever had in this trip. Nice atmosphere to meet people and have new friends. I will come back!
I love love this hostel! The people at the front desk are so nice and help you do everything and tell you where everything is. They picked us up from the Ferry for free (even without the 5 night minimum requirement) and they give you a free towel and a large locker with a lock to use. The pool and the shower are not necessarily heated, but if you come during the summer I'm sure this wouldn't be an issue. In the end of October it wasn't really that bad for us. Close to the buses as well.
This hostel was great value for your money. It was so close to the bus station, which was nice after a long ferry. We met great people in the common area and were able to cook in the small kitchen area. Definitely recommend this hostel.
Staffs are nice especially the lady at reception. Close to town center and bus stop. Good value for money
The atmosphere here was great with lots of other travellers despite it being low season. Santorini is an amazing island, must visit the beaches and watch the sunset over the sea!
This is a great hostel. Good location in fira. Close to the bus station which makes exploring the Island easy. Close to supermarkets and agents to buy ferry tickets. Great facilities. Lockers and lights for each bed. Very clean also. I would highly recommend this place :)
Fira is beautiful and has plenty to do. The hostel is in walking distance to everything in Fira, however, if you want to travel to other areas of Santorini via public transportation, it starts to add up if your trying to be cautious w/your money (bus terminal close by). Close to the Old Port which has plenty of excursions. Staff

I had a lot of fun at this hostel because it was easy to meet people. It was also great that it had a pool and the location was excellent as it was close to the buses and you could walk downtown. However the bathrooms were the worst I've ever encountered. They were gross and flooded the floor and smelled bad. However it's not that big of a deal. Would still stay here again.
Near to the bus station and shops. Big lockers in the dorms and comfortable beds. Had a sociable communal area and kitchen. Would recommend.
This hostel was not clean at all and extremely noisy. Full of very young people who are probably traveling for the first time. If you want to party and get social/drunk, this is the place. If not, avoid this. Staff was super nice though!
Would recommend Backpackers Place to anyone and everyone. I had the most amazing time here because of the people I met. The atmosphere allows you to meet new people and form new friendships and bonds. Location was super close to bus station as well and centrally located.
Cheap hostel at a perfect location for travelling around Santorini. The pick-up service from the harbour is very useful. But the hostel could be more clean, beds more comfortable and the showers better.
