Loved this place, great location. Central to everything. Met some awesome people during my trip and each room has large lockers to secure your items.
Really enjoyed my stay here! Great location, free use of washing machine and dryer came in handy. Movie screening in the common area every night added to the wonderful atmosphere.
An awesome hostel, very good set up for meeting new people with an open lounge, security lockers in each room, good showers and bathrooms, free laundry, and close to the bus station! Would stay there again for sure!
The staffs were really nice, everything looked fine. :)

I absolutely loved that hostel! I met a lot of people, the common room really reunites everybody! It closes at midnight wich is not too early so it's really cool! It's the best location you could ask for, people are nice and the wifi is not perfect but is pretty good! I would definetly go back!
this hostel was so fun! Location was prime and the hostel staff were so helpful with everything :) the kitchen area is joined with the common room so there's always someone hanging around that you could meet. Rooms are clean and the showers are big! Great atmosphere and snugly cats. On sunny days there's a little pool you can hang by ;)
Great hostel very close to town and with a great atmosphere for meeting other travelers. I would go back if I was in santorini again
Nice hostel clean and easy access to the Center of Fira I will recommended this hostel !!
As a group of 5 going to Santorini during off-season, we got to use a room for 8. Although it was in basement, the room was naturally well lit. We had trouble opening our door but as soon as we told them, the faculty fixed it. The staff was amazing; the front desk man clearly introduced the island to us so we were able to navigate the island. Downs: Heater in room only reached half the room. Windows opened to pool so air smelled like chlorine. Private bathroom was tiny - used public ones instead
Was not convenient to change (no shelf or hook) in the shower and the restroom.

the location is great, very near to the bus stop of fira, the crew were so nice, they let me leave my luggage there for a long time, and even let me stay in the common area until late night for my ferry. the room was quite good as well.
One of the best hostel experiences I've ever had! Wi-fi worked, beds were clean, etc., but the real draw was the location and the people. Super close to everything, with incredibly friendly staff and a great atmosphere. If you want to meet people while traveling, Fira Backpackers Place is perfect.
A really fun hostel in the absolute most perfect location in Fira. Great place to meet people and am extremely happy with my stay!
Nice place. Staff was friendly. The rooms were pretty clean. Safe area. No complaints but nothing was so stellar about the place to give it a perfect score.
Great location. Very helpful staff. Booked a double private but moved to a 4 bed private which was more spacious. Wifi was fast. A very large, noisy group of college students stayed a couple of nights which was annoying. They took over the place and it was hard to move around or use any facilities. Night security could have been more proactive in making them be quiet in the early ours. Very clean hostel.
This was a wonderful hostel right in the middle of Fira, the capital city of the island. The location was very close to food options, bank machines and places to rent an ATV or car. The staff was absolutely top notch here. Very friendly and helpful and made you feel at home. They also take in stray cats and get them fixed, which gave the place a great feel. Only downside was the shower, as people tended to leave the bathroom floor wet, and the shower curtain clings to you. Would stay again.
It is a nice place to stay, located very close to the bus station and the town center. The staff is very helpful and gives you all the information you need to get around and enjoy your stay. The facility are very good. The rooms are very clean and have a nice view from the terrace.
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.
